William Kouam Djoko

William Kouam Djoko (NL)With William mainly focusing on the vocals they ended up to be one of the first and most successful minimal house live acts in the Dutch scene. In the summer of 2011, Jason & The Argonauts are playing their two very last shows, a closure to very beautiful chapter in the book of William’s musical career.

William’s solo career, which really started in 2008, with a full 12” on ThirtyOneTwenty, will always benefit from all the experience he accumulated being one of the Argonauts. The “Hard Loving” release earned international respect and gave William a perfect way to present himself as one of Amsterdam’s most diverse and creative house producers. A lot of big gun producers and DJ’s picked up William’s interesting sound which earned him spots on some of the most respected compilations around like the Watergate and Balance series.

His sound, which characterized by full grooves with freaky bits and pieces, got floors shaking from Italy to Berlin and from Barcelona to London. While modern dance floors get flooded with laptop live acts that use nothing but Ableton and a mouse, William takes it to the proverbial next level.

Using the old-school Chicago and New York acts as an influence and using his skills he gained from MC-ing as J&A, William uses the microphone as an essential part of each live show. Talking to the crowd, making a true connection and doing live vocals, it al makes William’s act so much more fresh and exciting. This fresh-ness has earned him spots at festivals and places like Sonar, Awakenings, Free Your Mind, Fuse, Trouw, Melkweg and at Sonne Mond Sterne.

But William’s story doesn’t stop there; since last year he is also the proud promoter and resident of a brand-new club night at Trouw called ‘Late Night Society’. Together with partner-in-crime Boris Werner, they have welcomed guests like Wareika, Jamie Jones and Visionquest.

For now, William is doing what he loves best and by the looks of it, that’s is what he will keep on doing for as long as he can. Make sure you catch him, his live shows or one of his records when you can, because he won’t let you down!
