w/ Justin Strauss
Joakim is hard to pin down: part club music, part jazz, part electronic experimentalism.
One of France’s foremost electronic musicians, Joakm has a background in classical music, US & UK indie rock and jazz. He discovered electronic music after a schoolfriend left his synthetiser in Joakim’s room, later latching onto indie and electronic labels such as Warp and Mo Wax. His first album ‘Tiger Sushi’ was ambient electro-jazz, before he moved onto electronics with ‘Fantômes’ , and later ‘Monsters and Silly Songs’ , on which he combines post-rock, disco, and electronics.
Joakim runs the Tigersushi label, releases a broad spectrum of music including Maurice Fulton, E.S.G, Poni Hoax and Metro Area. Joakim does live sets, DJs and he’s also a remixer; he’s recut tunes from Tiga, Air and Antena’s ‘Camino Del Sol’ – the latter of which was one of the biggest club tunes of 2006. Finally, he also has a live band, Joakim and the Ectoplasmic Band, on which he plays machines, keyboards, guitars and sings. Fingers in many pies then.
A real NYC veteran, Justin Strauss busted his chops early on at legendary clubs like Mudd Club,The Ritz, Danceteria and Area. Lately he’s really set fire to the scene, including opening for Thom Yorke at PS1’s last Warm Up Event of the year and also mixing a guest set on Tim Sweeney’s Beats In Space Radio. His Whatever/Whatever DJ moniker with DFA’s Justin Miller has always been a sure fire thing around town as well.
