DJ. Producer, Parisian re-mixer, ex resident DJ at the Queen club, FG Gj radio and ex resident of L’enfer.
Yass played his first turntables when he was 13 years old and at the age of 19 was one of the youngest resident dj’s in Paris.
Since then influenced by some of the worlds most respected Dj’s he worked non stop to perfect his technique and style until he became today a top international Dj.
22 years experience mixing, beginning with 7 years of hip-hop. With the influence of the ‘rave party’ phenomenon and the new talent revealed by the electronic wave which swept through Paris he gradually developed a techno sound. This opend up a whole new horizon and he was soon in his element.
His flight cases were gradually filled with records from Detroit, Chicago, Germany, or England (Axis, Trax, Relief, Tresor….) He payed at a number of rave parties making a name for himself and gaining public recognition.
fro then on his intention was to mix in a new creative way. From 1997, at the end of his studies as sound engineer onwards he worked in clubs developing his style more progressively with house music being his choice of sound. At the time the clubs preferred this to techno and hip hop and the movement came onto the scene as a melting pot of cultures and diversity.
He handled this house style magnificently, combining his teenage groove with funk, disco, jazz and even techno elements. In this period he mixed five days a week behind the decks in some of the french capitals biggest clubs. he refined his three turntable mix which became his means of expression and his trade mark and thanks to his many club residencies he is quite comfortable doing long sets. The list of Dj’s who Yass has shared the decks with is really too long to include here but needless to say they are amongst the top dj’s in the world.
In 1999 he began travelling abroad as a guest in foreign clubs. His present is very club-style pumping soulful house influenced by the French and New York scene and can be qualified as unique. His aim, while concentrating on the organic side of his mix is above all to be as one with his public and give them a musical experience not easily forgotten.
