BIO
Eric Kupper got his start over three decades ago working as a keyboardist, guitarist, and songwriter for such producer and remixers as David Morales, Frankie Knuckles, Arthur Baker, Mark Kamins, Justin Strauss, Peter Rauhofer and Richie Jones to name a few.
Since 1986 he has played on, remixed, and/or produced over 2000 records for artists spanning all contemporary musical genres. He is one of the few artists in dance music today that is a master multi-instrumentalist. A true musician. Over the years, thousands and thousands of hours in the studio has polished Eric Kupper into one of the most sought after producers/remixer/musicians in the world.
Michael Jackson, Alicia Keys, Depeche Mode, Mary J. Blige and many many more
The remix work is astounding. Major label artists that have taken the Kupper treatment include Garbage, Usher, Michael Jackson, Alicia Keyes, DJ Cassidy feat. Robin Thicke & Jessie J., Katy Perry, Whitney Houston, The Jackson 5, Ariana Grande, Depeche Mode, Mary J.

Much of Kupper’s massive discography is derived from his work as a studio musician and a
remixer. His work as a multi-instrumentalist and arranger has helped sell over 50 million records
for artists such as Anastacia, Marc Anthony, Celine Dion, Jessica Simpson, and Jennifer Lopez. In the role of “additional production and keyboards” Eric has worked with Madonna, Celine

Eric produced a track for the October 2014 release “Aretha Franklin Sings the Great Diva Classics” which became the first top 10 album for the “Queen of Soul” in over 30 years. It reached number 1 on the Billboard R&B album chart. Other producers on the album include Babyface and Andre 3000.

Eric was one of the original 5 Hed Kandi DJ’s
Eric was one of the original 5 Hed Kandi DJ’s, where he enjoyed a residency at London’s Pacha for four years, as well as DJing all over the globe as an independent DJ or as a Hed Kandi resident. These days you can find Eric performing worldwide, sometimes with keyboards in the DJ booth for added flavor. As a DJ Eric is known for his keen ability to read an audience. Whether serving up the deepest soulful grooves or big room anthems, his sets always rock the crowd.
A Director's Cut
In 2011 through early 2014, Eric placed a great deal of focus on his partnership with long-term collaborator Frankie Knuckles, under the name “Director’s Cut”. The first single “I’ll Take You There” featured Jamie Principle on vocals and was released on Nocturnal Groove. Since then, nearly everything with the “Director’s Cut” name on it (original tracks and remixes) has reached the top 5 on the Traxsource downloads chart, most topping the chart at #1. The remix of Human Life’s “In It Together” was truly one of the summer anthems of 2011. The Director’s Cut remix of “Need You (100%)” by Duke Dumont feat. A*M*E hit #1 on the Billboard Dance/Club Chart in August of 2013. The world lost a true music pioneer upon Frankie’s untimely passing in March 2014. Eric will continue to carry on the Director’s Cut style, as a testament to his close musical relationship with Frankie.
