Psytrance & Techno Artist, based in Luxembourg and Cologne (Germany).
Originally from Luxembourg, Joe Egassy now calls Cologne (Germany) his home.
His interest in djing started in 2012. In the beginning, his gigs included mainly private events, mostly birthdays and weddings. He also played in some bars and other party venues.
However, while growing older and with increased experience, he lost interest in the music styles and gigs he was playing. It was in summer 2016, that he was attending several music festivals, which inspired him to take a step forward in his DJ Career. Taking the time to reconsider, he slowly took on a new path by putting aside all ideas he had had in mind before and asking himself the important question:
What do I really want to do?
It took several months to find the satisfying answer: Psytrance. Finally, in November 2016, he publicly announced that from now on, he would be known under the name of Joe Egassy. After the first months of this new journey, he was playing in Luxemburgish clubs and forest raves and thus started to develop his own style. His productions and mixes can be characterized by a broad variety of sounds coming from Progressive Psytrance into the faster domain of Full On. The next big step in his personal and musical life was his move to Cologne for music studies. There he explored the city’s underground clubs and discovered his love for Techno. As a consequence, slowly a side project came to life: under the alias of Egassy Tech, he started to produce and play Techno Music.
2018 has so far been the most exciting year: He won the psytrance category of the Bootshaus DJ Contest and played regular gigs in different cities around Germany and Luxembourg. For 2019, there will be no slowing down. Already one of the finalists of the Bootshaus DJ Contest 2019, another big point on his agenda for the near future are the founding of his own Record label called Egalla Records.
