Biography

The unfolding success story of Yass’s love affair with music and the world’s consequent love affair with Yass’s talent began at a very early age! Yass first fell in love with the turntables at just the tender of age of 13, and at the age of 19 was one of the youngest resident DJ’s on the french circuit. Raised in Paris, a city world renowned for giving birth to many musically talented offspring, as well as being a perfect example of a modern day culturally mixed society, Yass’s habitual growth could not have been more fitting for a future within the music industry which has now earned him a place with top flight international recognition.

The first seven years of Yass’s career saw him spinning hip-hop and with the influences of the “rave party” phenomenon sweeping through Paris he started to develop a techno sound. This opened up a new horizon for Yass and he soon realised he was in his element. His record boxes were getting gradually getting filled with cuts from Detroit, Chicago, Germany and UK. Yass played in a number of famed club nights, making a name for himself gaining public notoriety, from then on his intention was to mix in a new creative way. In 1997, at the end of his sound engineering studies, he carried on working in clubs, developing his style more progressively, house music being his choice of records, this was a revelation to him at the time clubs preferred it to techno and Hip-Hop.

Yass handles the house style magnificently, combining his teenage days of groove, funk, disco, jazz and even techno sound making it an ideal portrait of his musical painting. At the time he was on the road five days a week, on the turntables of the capitals biggest clubs, he perfected the art of mixing on three turntables, which has become his means of expression.
