Well intentioned to do something more professional as dj, he starts to play in some of the most important italian clubs; he eventually met italian djs Sygo and Dr.Nuke, and they joined into the SMOKE crew, releasing 12" on Formation, Signal and Reformed and getting support by John Peel, Dj SS and lot of big djs. In 2005 he left SMOKE and released singles on Toughness, ToughExpress, Artivu, G recodings and Modulate, working with Kantyze, Contour, A.Maver, Maurs, Deval, DjDp to name a few. In 2006, exploring new sounds, Arpxp started to produce dubstep and in 2008, finally, he released some of his tunes with Essence of Dub and Elastica Records, remixing Zion Train and famous italian singer Raiz. As a dj, he played alongside artists like RoniSize, Hype, Grooverider, ShyFx, AsianDubFoundation, A Sides, Bailey, Flight, Doc Scott, Chase&Status, Danny Byrd, JohnB and many more. He's a Sunandbass festival's resident dj and is heading a project called DNBCAST in his city, Cagliari.

Drumnbass and dubstep producer/dj, he plays with the DNBCAST and has been involved in Cagliari's dnb scene for few years now. His musical growth, past across from different genres like hiphop, heavymetal, techno and electro, led him to drum and bass in 2000. Only few years after, he threw himself into music production, both developing his own style and deriving inspiration from such big names as Roni Size, Goldie and so on. Up to 2008, with Modulate Recordings's first release together with ARPXP, one of the most important italian producers and with him, in 2008, and from a collaboration with another big sardinian producer, Maver, "the Orchid" sees the light, soon being part of the fourth Italian Bassline compilation.
