The Mekanism aka Damien Roussel continues adding to the rich history of fine House Music emerging from Paris. As a DJ for over ten years, he brings a fresh approach with a skillful and experienced touch. Preferring vinyl only sets he has been wooing crowds worldwide, as well at home with his regular residencies in his home city.
After a stint living in Asia, Damien returned to Paris in 2012 and set about constructing his debut EP for the London based taste-making label Needwant. That debut EP featured two coveted singles ‘Can’t Believe’ and ‘Missing Love’, inducing a feeling of low slung House warmth that captured the sound of that summer. This was quickly followed by an equally impressive remix of Mario Basanov’s ‘We Are Child Of Love’ on the same label.
Since then he has gone on to release and remix for sought-after labels such as Los Surba, Exploited , Noir and many more. The Mekanism’s inventive Dj sets are now moving dance floors from South Africa to Sao Paolo and he finds himself crisscrossing just about every continent throughout 2014.
Then there is The Mekanism, the resident DJ. Never is there more a testament to a DJ’s consistency than a sort after club at the core. The Mekanism continues as bi-monthly residency at the Social Club in Paris where he recently featured on Boiler Room, while in the summer of 2014 he will add a second high profile residency at one of the best clubs on the island of Ibiza.
Whether it is original productions, remakes or DJ sets, one thing is for sure The Mekanism is one of House music’s brightest shining lights.
