William Djoko (UA)
Cameroonian father, Ukrainian mother, blessed with innate energy and trained as a classical, modern, hip-hop and salsa dancer, the Amsterdam-based William Djoko is blessed with an enviable framework for a prosperous career in music. His vibrant appearance shows he’s a entertainer par excellence; Djoko is able to grab the attention of his audience instantly thanks to an unbridled onstage enthusiasm. Without any basic knowledge of the trade he decided to take the plunge as an MC way back. That leap of faith, along with his distinctive voice, formed the stepping stones for the engaging live performances he’s known for today. Performances which have earned him spots at every major Dutch festival and some of the most renowned venues around the world. Most of his fellow natives will recognise him as one of Trouw’s former longest serving resident DJs. Djoko is one of The Netherlands’ most exciting new talents in bass-driven house music at the moment, delivering intelligent house and techno on stalwart labels like Voyage Direct, Tuskegee and Mobilee.
