As we move firmly into the new decade, Parisian producer and DJ Tchami has built a loyal fanbase on both sides of the Atlantic with his genre-defying sound and unique brand of spiritual house music.
Widely-known as the founding father of the Future/House genre, Tchami changed the dance music scene forever with era-defining tracks including ‘Afterlife,’ ‘Adieu’ and ‘Promesses’ — with the latter catapulting him into dance-music royalty, racking in over 50 million streams across platforms. Since then, Tchami has generated over 475 million global streams, toured alongside superstars like Skrillex, Diplo, DJ Snake and Malaa, and performed at world-renowned festivals Coachella, Lollapalooza, Creamfields, Ultra and Tomorrowland to name but five.
Tchami has been supported by key tastemaker publications including Billboard, Complex, Rolling Stone, Forbes, VICE and Variety, while also gracing the cover of Spotify’s most notable playlists including MINT, New Music Friday, Cratediggers and more.
A versatile producer with appeal that stretches far beyond the dance floor, Tchami caught the eye of pop-icon Lady Gaga, who enlisted him to co-produce her latest album CHROMATICA. Tchami is credited for working on four singles from the album, including her first release ‘Stupid Love,’ collaboration with Ariana Grande ‘Rain On Me,’ as well as ‘100 Doves’ and ‘Babylon.’ A long-time producer and friend of Lady Gaga, Tchami has also worked on her earlier hits ‘Applause’ and ‘Sexxx Dreams’ from her 2014 album Artpop, cementing his status as one the industry’s most sought after producers.
Following the release of his debut album Year Zero, which was conceived in LA, Paris and London, Year Zero exudes renewal, a creative rebirth. Drawing on musical culture and various experiences, Year Zero remains very personal regardless of its genre. Amongst the album tracks are standout double-single releases ‘Born Again’ / ‘Buenos Aires’ and ‘Proud’ / ‘Ghosts,’ as well as collaborations with US grammy-nominated rapper Gunna and singer ZHU.
As we head into the new year, Tchami will continue to spearhead his successful label Confession as he braces for the return of global touring in support of his new album.
