About Me

Evan Hays made his first steps in to audio in 2014.
It's with the wish to share and make discover to other people the music he loves so much that he plays long eclectics Dj sets, mixing multiple House/Techno sub-genres along oldschool, exotic or even experimental influences.
You might have heard him in some places like the Redlight, Batofar, Folies Pigalle, 4 Elements, Panic Room, Concorde Atlantique or at his stop at the Marvellous island Festival in 2016.

In the meanwhile, he quickly discovered the production/studio univers and made his first audio experiments, with since the beginning a strong attraction for audio synthesis. We indeed find this back in his tracks with those catchy synths, rich and bewitching.

With his childwood friend, Lowel, Evan is also at the origin of TDF Records a collective born association wich has now became a full part Label. Based between Paris & Montreal, TDF gathers a few artists, organise some events and release some underground Techno music.

Finally, more recently, his interest for audio technique led Evan Hays to acquire more knowledges & experience via an Audio Production Technique formation wich he completed with "excellence mention". He developped some competences in various domains from audio recording/engineering to sound design, post production for vidéo content, audio integration in to video games via the Wwise Engine wich he is both 101 & 110 certified user...

On the last years Evan specialized himself in to musical Mixdown & Mastering mainly in to electronic music (Techno/House) asw well as experimental, reggae, folk pop... Do not hesitate to contact him for any collaboration !
