Parisian DJ and producer Pilooski (Cédric Marszewski) made his name in 2007 with a series of limited edition edits made with the Dirty Sound System
. Dirty Sound System selects, Pilooski edits. Together, they were behind 2007’s hit edit "Beggin"
as well as "Hai Samurai" and the edit of the garage-rock monster "Nobody But Me" by the Human Beinz. Pilooski is also one half of Discodeine
with Benjamin Morando (aka Octet and Pentile).
Marszewski started out as a DJ and hip-hop producer in the mid 9Os, providing his arranging skills to various French and international rappers such as Mike Ladd. After releasing his fist single on fledgling hip-hop label P Sounds in 2002, Marszweki joined Benjamin Diamond’s Diamond Traxx
label. For Diamond Traxx he produced a hip-hop EP A Peu Prés
(2004) and Can’t there be love
(2006), a cut-up 12”, before teaming up with the Dirty crew. Together they started the Dirty Edits
series, a series of edited classic/forgotten songs that were immediate club sensations, spun by Laurent Garnier to Simian Mobile Disco, Tiga to Ivan Smagghe. The release that first set the Dirty crew apart was Pilooski's 2007 edit of Frankie Valli's northern soul number "Beggin",
which was successful enough to bring the major labels calling. Warner UK sub 679 Recordings re-released Pilooski’s edit of "Beggin",
and the track got worldwide exposure and extensive radio airplay.
As a DJ, Pilooski has played clubs such as Fabric, The End, Sao Paulo’s Vegas, Lisbon’s Lux club, NY’s APT, Sweden’s Berns among others. Poolski has done remixes for labels like 679, Domino, Peacefrog, Rush Hour and the Verve jazz label.
