Stephane Ghenacia [FR]


He might be French, but Stephane Ghenacia very much came up and made his mark on the London underground house scene. As well as laying down his own well informed sets, he also promotes the Colors LND party in the East of the capital and has done so since 2013. The party sees a range of top DJs headline, with each one themed with a different colour. The event has also spawned its own label (co run by Stephane and Guilhem Monin) and is now well known for a diverse output of sound as well as key collection of resident DJs and guests like Craig Richards, Boo Williams and Glenn Underground. Stephane has been DJing since his teens, having hooked up with his Colors cohorts via a mutual friend, they immediately had plenty of chemistry, and it is that which makes the label and party series work so well. Starting out as an illegal party, it is now fully legit with residents Thomas Roland, Jonny Rock, Remi Mazet and Valmont all playing. Spreading their wings, Colors has now done events in Berlin, Istanbul. Barcelona and also Paris always taking you through a real musical journey, with an atmosphere that evolves throughout the night. Stephane himself is an eclectic DJ who reaches for soul, house, techno and 2-step whenever appropriate, and is a keen vinyl collector. As such he and his party are vital sources of underground cool in Europe, and long may that continue.
