System of Survival, Pietro ‘Bingo’ De Lisi and Alex Carpentieri, are dedicated purveyors of all that is good in house music. They’ve held a residency at the legendary Circo Loco at DC10 in Ibiza since its inception. Their ability to carry a crowd, seamlessly blend styles and support the countless guest DJs is a true testament to the role of a resident and led them to fly the Circo Loco flag across the globe.
Apart from touring with the DC10 crew, Bingo and Alex have been steadily riding a wave of popularity, gaining momentum through their own headlining dates at Panorama Bar & Watergate, Berlin: Movement Detroit Festival, BPM Festival in Mexico, Verboten & Output in New York, Womb in Tokyo and Fabric London.
A commitment to style beyond what’s trendy and ease in mixing the old with the new, has earned them the title of a DJ’s DJ.
Alex explains, “Our sets have never really fit to one particular style or type, Bingo has a Soul and Funk background whereas mine is more Detroit or Chicago technoinspired so when we play it’s a real blend of the styles, making something different completely, something new.” As true aficionados, SOS boast an extensive back catalogue of music, across styles and genres, and nowhere is this more evident than in their productions. Their first LP album – Needle And Thread – is a both a reflection on their future vision of house and a tribute to the sounds that have inspired them to this point. After a chance listening by Ellen Allien, it has been signed and released on BPitch Control.
