Papp was born and raised in Montreal, Canada, and got tuned into dance music through the city’s flourishing club scene and diverse radio broadcasts. He started collecting vinyl records in the late '70s and took to the turntables in 1985, scoring his first major club gig two years later.
Early DJ influences for Papp came from reading about specific parties that were piloted by talented music programmers that even today, still influence the youngest of aspiring DJs. Legends like Larry Levan at the Paradise Garage in NYC to Frankie Knuckles at The Warehouse in Chicago to Tony Humphries’ weekly at Zanzibar in New Jersey. Always inspired by any track listing in those articles, Papp would hunt down the music that became classics, worshiped by their discerning audiences. To this day, his goal is to keep solidifying his music foundation by being open minded and eclectic in absorbing the music that truly touches him.
As papp's production catalog grew, so did the amount of labels he released music on including – Nervous (NYC), Maxi (NYC), Large (Chicago), Yellow (Paris), King ST (NYC), Loveslap (SF) and Om Records (SF).
Papp's latest CD compilation mix is on Loveslap entitled Heartbeat Vol. 2.
