Discoteca Poca presents, An Evening with Ivan Smagghe photo gallery
For this months underground tomfoolery we bring you a Parisian who is a genre defying / defining, DJ, producer, blogger and sporter of a fine tash. We have already booked Weatherall so it has to be his French counterpart Ivan Smagghe.
As much as I hate coining this phrase "crate digger", thats basically what the one time member of Black Strobe is. Always bringing to the table a fine selection of cutting edge sounds some of which hold no categorisation . His sound can rival that of any other underground DJ and having the charm to go with that is truly a must when being called labeled by fellow DJ's, "The DJ's DJ".
In essence Ivan is truly an original character. Being slightly leftfield with an air of charm all of his own.
No stranger to playing the best clubs in the world. Collaborations with an ever endless list of championing pioneers, I feel safe that "I need say no More"
"He's constantly searching out new stuff and never stays still - a real innovator" - Ewan Pearson.
