French-born Afro/Vietnamese/Cambodian artist, DJ, producer & lecturer in Fine Art (Royal College of Art), living in London.
As an artist, my practice sets out to use systems or tools that are used to understand the world, such as logic or physics, but subvert them to suggest new visions of reality. More info here.
As a DJ, I am not limited by a specific genre. Though I do have a penchant for electronic, hybrid and club music. My DJ sets present a varied selection forging astral connections through spectrums of Techno, Afrotrap, Gqom, Acid, futuristic Chaabi الشعبي, high-voltage Electro through to fusions we haven't found names for yet.
I have recently performed at Chale Wote Festival (Accra, Ghana), Tate Modern (London), the Living Art Museum (Reykjavik), Apocalypse/Rave (Oslo), Corsica Studios (London) and Villa Empain (Brussels).
I also run a new club night called Décalé. Décalé is a platform that puts on evenings of experimental, collapsing and flawless sounds/visuals. Décalé means: ‘Being displaced in space and time.’ Invited artists have included FAUZIA (NTS radio), Sami Baha (Planet Mu), Terribilis (Quantum Natives), XANA, Victoria Sin, Zinzi Minott, Dancing Queer الراقصة المثلية شروق العطار, Fenchville and many more.
Also, I've just started to make music. So far, I have completed remixes for Bas Jan (UK), Whalesharkattack (Norway), Dalcym and Richard Colvaen (both from Belgium). I am currently working on my own tracks, to be released soon.
