About Don Pascal
Originally from Toulouse, Don Pascal started DJing in Paris in the early ‘90s becoming a pioneer in promoting Black Music artists at a time when French major labels were hesitant to pick them up, despite their essential role in the French musical scene. Promoting at the legendary Parisian club the Palace, he opened the doors to African and reggae/dancehall artists. There and elsewhere he shared the decks with African DJs introducing Congolese, Nigerian and Senegalese music. He also worked with Sony and Virgin Music on the releases of artists including Air, Michael Jackson, Fugees, Cypress Hill, Basement Jaxx, Massive Attack and Horace Andy. After moving to Barcelona in 2003, Don began mixing alongside Fred Guzzo at Cafe Royale, contributing to the diverse and progressive musical policy that made it the spot for demanding music lovers. He also began producing music with French DJ/producer Fred Spider as The Jivers, releasing the jazzy club hit “Do What” followed by a highly regarded EP on the Jazz & Milk label. His solo work includes “The Cali Experiment” on Tru Thoughts" and “Deep Throw”, a Deep-Afro House side project on Broadcite Music. He is presently working on more material joining the dots between Afro and Latin music and Future Beats.
