Serge Devant: Exposed to electronic music at an early age, equipped with a classical music education, this New York DJ developed an insatiable taste for music and 24-hour nightlife. Devant frequented local New York haunts like the legendary Sound Factory, Twilo, and Tunnel when he was just 16 and was inspired by the scene and championed by the likes of Damian Lazarus. Once part of Ultra Records, Devant has recently released tracks on Hot Since 82’s acclaimed label Knee Deep in Sound, has more new music upcoming on Yousef’s imprint Circus, and then again on Crosstown Rebels later in the year.
