Big Announcement – LINEUP 2012 – ZAATH
We are absolutely thrilled to announce you that our first edition for the Berlin Hipster Festival is going to be super exciting!
Indeed, we have found out this morning that Zaath, this incredibly talented DJ from Versailles with a twist of Southern France, has decided to accept our offer and to appear as the Headliner of our festival.
Wait. WHAT, you don’t know Zaath yet? Then go check yourself immediately on his SoundCloud, you will not regret it one second!
You also want to know a little more about who’s hiding behind this intriguing – but yet wonderfully well-thought – nickname?
Here it goes :
Zaath was born in the magnificent area of Marseille, in Southern France. But only stayed there a couple of months so his parents could have the time to pack and move to the Big, Cold North. The poor thing didn’t get the chance to enjoy the sights of endless lavender fields, eat tapenade every day, and think that Marcel Pagnol is the best writer in the Universe. He then studied near Paris, and then later on in the charming area of Pontoise, discovering alongside, as early as his teenage years, the sounds of wind instruments, and hence persevering in becoming a master in playing the clarinet.
Zaath discovered however one day, that music could actually be played much more easily with a computer and weird machines with knobs and faders.
So Zaath threw his now-completely-useless flute to the “orties” and started twisting sounds with his laptop, as well as pushing faders up and down.
A year in Dortmund enabled him to be
totally, well, kindof fluent in German. Various stays followed in Berlin partying like an animal – convincing him he should make Berlin this place called home.
Check out his mixes THERE !
We look forward to hearing how excited you guys are in the ‘Comment‘ Section!
