Optimo - Joakim & The Disco
Joakim Bouaziz is the Parisian founder of Tigersushi records and brilliant producer/remixer in his own right. Renowned for solo work such as ''I wish you were gone'' and ''Drumtrax'' - not to mention his superb remix output which includes acclaimed mixes of Poni Hoax, DJ Medhi, and Cut Copy to mention but a few - have cemented his reputation as one of the most innovative and influential artists around.
Joakim will be performing at Optimo in the Subclub with his band under the moniker ''Joakim & the Disco'' - whose upcoming album ''Milky Ways'' has been tipped as one of the best of 2009 so far, featuring the excellent single ''Love & Romance & A Special Person''. Joakim & the Disco have been described as everything from electro-pop, pyschedelia, krautrock and exotica!
