Djoy de Cuba
Given the name Joyvan by his mother, DJoy de Cuba has always been on a mission to create magic and became the pioneer of the Cuban electronic music scene. It all began at a club called Atalier when he began throwing events in 1997. With the help of the LOVE PARADE performing team and a turntable gift from DJ Hell – he created the festival ROTILLA with his friend Michel. ROTILLA started in 1998 with 150 friends and grew to 20,000 ravers before the government seized the project in 2010. This festival was the voice of the new Cuban generation – the sound characterized by a progressive mix - eclectic and psychedelic that goes from House to Tech House and Techno – just like Djoy De Cuba’s DJ sets that are always spontaneous and give unique color to the storylines of sound. He can go from the happiest and brightest to the most obscure and paranoid, as creating tension on the dance floor is one of his goals in each set!
