Musician, dj and producer: Joy Kitikonti is a polyhedric artist with several discographic successes, important partnerships and awards in his background. All these experiences made him the mature artist of today.

We can say hes “Natural born artist”. His innate talent, his creativity and strong will made him especially known for his mood and for his inspiration. But Joy is always the reserved and quiet person he was before and he doesnt like talking too much about himself or boasting about his success, because he gives in charge to the music the power to tell his story.

The dj is a chef, that can mix sounds, riffs, cool bass effects, drums, percussions … at the desks he “cooks” and everytime he produces a different and original set: you can give the same records to another dj and the result will always be different.

“When the dj plays his music, he feels like a writer: and when he plays he always shows something about his soul, his mind and his heart. Sounds are like words and you can combine them in thousands of different ways and sometimes you cant control them. Playing for me is a necessity. Even if Electronic Music neednt classical instruments and scores, it offers the same possibilities of other genres.”

Joy has already released many tracks on epic BXR Label (MediaRecords), signed with his real name or with different pseudonymes (Jakyro, Joman), he produced for Eukahouse, Hooj Choons, Neuton, Scandioum, Grasp, Gouta Music, Orion Muzik, Inside Orion, Mtm (Metempsicosi), Bluefin as remixer, Mazoomlab, Diva Records, Nervous, Mindshake, Moovment, Analytictrail, Krone, Antibe Music, Natura Viva, Presslab, Neurotraxx, Acid 80, Natural Rhythm, IPocket, Start Records, FootLoversMusic, Push Push, Aenaria, Night Light, and more .
But Joy Kitikontiroots are in the Underground Clubs scene, where hes really loved for his creative fantasy and his original sound, but especially for his unbelievable technical ability at the mixer.

Hes a member of Metempsicosi (www.metempsicosi.com), the free association among six artists who share ideas, sound and successes, not the typical djs or events agency, that only thinks about the djs booking date and promotion, but a project itself.

His own life is a mix: a combination of sounds, moods, styles, places, images. The “contamination” is the key to re-invent and to live your life with your personal style, to escape the banality and the danger of something already seen and already heard. His “hand” is always perceivable in his productions.

His underground vocation comes from those boundary territories, where music means fun, not just money, where friendship among the artists goes further than the interests of the music industry, where you can find in your hands some white labels, dreamt by the records shops, and where new ideas and moods are generated by the artists exchange and partnerships. Joy belongs to that world where, if we can use the espression… vanguards often born.
