Short biography..

That is a secret) I was born in France but I left it with my parents in childhood. I started interesting in music as a child. The Beatles, Pink Floyd, Nirvana, Massive Attack, Underworld had the greatest influence in my life. I played in the musical bands, created live musical projects. Professionally concerned with design, I am a perfectionist. I admire such artists as Vincent Van Gogh, Degas, Monet.


How long are you here in Koh Phangan and why do you like this island?

Something about 6 month now. Its my third year here. This is my own paradise and it has really  beautiful karma) I love this island.

What kind of music do you play? 

I love any grooving stuff, tech-house, techno, sometimes abstract techno. I try to make crazy positive atmosphere on the dance floor.


Why did you decide to start playing electronic music instead of playing in live bands?

DJing is my favorite hobby now) I had a lot of live projects in my life. Also I am drummer and I know what people need in clubs) Sometimes I play on private parties for my friends.

How did being a drummer influence your music?

You know I feel the groove very well and I don't use a headphones. I love mixing old school songs with modern sound in my set and making interesting mashups in realtime.

What do you think about the music scene on Koh Phangan compared to Europe?

I can't compare it) Its very hard for me. To my mind here there is no much good music) I don't like any kind of trance for example and I don't like electro or very commercial house)
