Meeting with Olympe4000, DJ and producer committed with unstoppable passion

A first airing after creating an account on SoundCloud, linked in an email, then sent to a large number of bars in Paris. ” I didn’t know anyone in the world of electronic music and I’m not from that background at all, so I had to record a little mix on SoundCloud and I clearly went through all the bars in Paris. I was particularly determined at the time. It was during these early dates that Olympe met her pairs of female DJs: I was very surprised by the sisterhood present among the girls. I was afraid of the competition, of the confrontation we could impose on ourselves, and it wasn’t there at all. This is where you see that we evolve among women, today we are really together “Touched by the lack of visibility of women on the electronic scene, it will organize its own electronic music festival in full confinement to combat menstrual precariousness. The Sisterules Festival will present more than forty women from all over the world on the airwaves of the Scandle web radio. .

Inspired by his first raves on the outskirts of Paris then by his nights at Rex, La Machine du Moulin Rouge or even Zigzag or Showcase, these are angry techno pieces, with a heavy BPM that we could hear in his first sets. : Recondite, DVS1 or the artists of the Innervision label. But today his selection has expanded. ” I can’t really say what style I’m mixing or what I’m going to play on the same day, it can go anywhere and I can change my mind at the last moment. I really do a lot of different things, my mixes are very eclectic. It can range from UK, bass, techno, house, trance, jungle, juke or even Eurodance if I feel like it. A wide and eclectic palette, undoubtedly alleviated by the many trips the artist has been able to make: Hyderabad in India, Barcelona, ​​New York, or even Kinshasa where he even launched the thunderous evenings of Makinteufs … Olympe4000 is more than reading the crowd, rehearsing, seeing what it takes while doing things in his image. To please the public always, without ever being conditioned. An unstoppable energy that we will be able to appreciate in particular this Friday 29 April at Badaboum, in the 11thth district of Paris, where the DJ is given carte blanche. For this premiere, he invites one of the ghetto-techno fathers, DJ Assault, as well as his musical father, Aurèle.

Olympe4000 is taking advantage of this 3-date residency in particular to take charge of the programming and invite the artists she likes and to whom she wants to offer greater visibility, but not only. We also feel an important position taken in the artistic direction, with the universe of the evening imagined alongside a graphic designer from the amann studio. An evening where sweat and sweat are omnipresent. Like a liberation of bodies and minds in motion. ” A residence is everything to me, it’s not just training. You have the graphics, the music, the atmosphere, the message you want to convey behind … Electronic music is political and must remain political, nonconformist, dissident and challenge the dominant values ​​within a society “, she says. The purpose of this evening is also to set up a safe, calm and responsible party with teams trained, accessible and aware of potential attacks. In addition to contact persons who will be present in case of the slightest problem.” It is painstaking work, but I really want people to get information, to find out about these problems and for the party to change.

While awaiting the next dates of her residency, in September and then in January 2023, we can now listen to the artist’s talents as a producer, as Olympe4000 has recently started composing. A new hat, which fits her well and through which she continues to fuel her love for music. On April 22nd one of her new tracks was released for Maison Close label, “We Never Work” with Aasi, and a new EP is currently in preparation … You have been warned, Olympe4000 is not to be lost sight of.
