Who is Phaedrus?
Phaedrus is the moniker of Dutch DJ and producer Joris Kamma. A frequent visitor to the Northwest, he held several Seattle residencies in addition to guest appearances at many clubs and parties. Decibel Festival, Oscillate and the now-defunct Groovetech Radio are among his most regular gigs. He recently relocated permanently to Seattle to join the ranks of Cascadian techno.
In the Netherlands, Kamma was a regular guest at radio Tonka and played a wide variety of live sets at various events. His live sets typically consist of an interesting blend of Detroit techno, minimal, House, electro, italodisco, 2-step and even dubstep.
As a DJ, he enjoys to dig in deep & quirky territories, a major influence being “Brighton techno ,” a term coined from Cristian Vogel’s Brighton-based record label Mosquito.
