Biography

Choopie is the pioneer of the Electronic Dance Music in Israel. Recognized as Godfather of Israeli DJ’s today and elected 5 times running as Israel’s no.1 DJ, Choopie has graced the decks for over 2 decades. Early in his career CHOOPIE, was involved in radio shows & dance events and produced the first dance and techno CDs in Israel. This acted as a backdrop for the launch of his dance Label, Agnosia Records.As the 6 year resident at “Allenby 58” (as well as at its summer venue “Octopus”), Israel’s most famous club (chosen by the famous music magazine “Face” as one of the top ten clubs in Europe 1997), Choopie attracted 1500+ each week to his Thursday Night slot and hosted top International DJ’s including Judge Jules, Sasha, Paul van Dyk, Paul Oakenfold, Dave Seaman, Seb Fontaine, Nick Warren, Roger Sanchez, Tony De vit, Tall Paul, John Kelly, L.L. Vega, Tiesto, Jeremy Healy, Brandon Block & Graham Gold. CHOOPIE also hosted a Friday Night House Radio show on 100FM for four years running.Choopie has performed leading events in Israel over the past 15 years including The Ministry of Sound Tour, Perfecto Tour (With Paul Oakenfold, Grace ET C), Platipus Records night, Lucky Dance Festival (with Faithless),All 3 Dance & Levi’s festival (with Prodigy, 808 State & Juno Reactor & Dj’s Carl Cox/Tony De vit & DJ Jan), Tel-Aviv’s four Love Parade’s and collaboration with Israel’s internationally acclaimed dance troupe Mayumana. Choopie has also spinned internationally in the UK (Peach, Gatecrasher & Republic), Ibiza (Miss Moneypenny’s closing party at El-Devino & Perfecto Night at Pacha), Turkey, (Dance Valley), Holland and the USA.In-between dj’ing, running Agnosia records and managing his studio for external productions & remixes, Choopie is also a reputable music producer. In the past he was one half of Jez & Choopie, the main remix unit from Israeli (97′-98′) and whose first major release “YIM” (Multiply) made the UK Top 40. The track was signed to over 20 countries and was the first major Israeli dance hit for years with Sony Music subsequently signing the duo on a Worldwide publishing deal. Additional license success followed in 1999 with two of his productions released on leading European house labels such as Basic Beats (Holland).Always in touch with developing musical trends coupled with a sense of maturing & development, Choopie’s Djing and productions now reflect the more groovier/sexier side of club music containing live vocals and live instruments reflected in releases such as “The Love” released by DEEP DISH’S respected YOSHITOSHI
