DJ Derbastler finds his inspiration in ethno-alternative grooves, drawing from a broad collection of Ukrainian and world-famous independent artists and labels. This diverse repertoire has pleased crowds in several capitals of Europe.
Derbastler is one of the founders of the Ukrainian electronic and alternative scene. He has already been a resident DJ for many years at Ukrainian Fashion Week events and performs as a resident DJ in a number of the best Kyiv clubs.
DJ Derbastler has collaborated with numerous groups and musicians having Ukrainian and Kyiv roots. He continues this synergetic work with artists such as Foa Hoka, Mama Diaspora, Chord Snatchers, Mandry, RotFront, and Yuri Gurzhy. He has also toured as a DJ with Gogol Bordello and performed at live acts with the leader of their group, Eugene Hutz.
By bringing Derbastler to Strasbourg, MICT is broadening the horizons of the European Capital with sounds from the alternative electronic scene of Kyiv and of Ukraine.
DJ Joe Sympson, a member of the Architektes, is already very well known in Strasbourg thanks to his reputation as the centre-piece to numerous 'underground' parties organised with the association "Emergency" at the Baobab and other great venues. His rythmical tech-house sound invariably launches the dance floor into a frenzy of Mouvement InterCulTurel.
Bringing an eclectic collection of minimalist electro grooves, Joe's music bounces with percussionist tones of drum and bass and touches of hip hop. Thanks to tours through the capitals of Europe with famous artists such as OXIA, Jack de Marseille, Tonio and Marco Bailey, our DJ Joe has an impressive range of tracks to spin.
A strong Berlin influence in his style should bring unity between DJ Joe and DJ Derbastler, the two architects of our Electro-Bridge.
