Phaedrus is the moniker of Dutch DJ and producer Joris Kamma. His love for electronic music developed in the early nineties, with the rise of house and techno. In particular its raw energy and unorthodox character inspired him to pick up DJ-ing and producing. In the Netherlands, Kamma was a regular guest at underground radio station Tonka and played a wide variety of DJ live sets at various events, performing with the likes of Speedy J, David Tarrida, Zero One, Pounding Grooves, Heatsick and Lee Gamble to name but a few.
In 2010 Joris relocated to Seattle, joining the ranks of Cascadian techno. He is currently involved with local record label Peloton Musique, which releases a wide range of fresh and exciting electronica.

His live sets typically consist of techno with added flavors techhouse and electro. As a DJ, he enjoys to dig in deep & quirky territories, a major influence being “Brighton techno ,” a term coined from Cristian Vogel’s Brighton-based record label Mosquito. While clearly a foundation, he also doesn't shy away from playing jacking techno, trippy techhouse and bass heavy watchamacallit. “I’m always looking for music that is not afraid to cross boundaries. I find myself less and less concerned with genre labels and more into what inspires me. I have a soft spot for artists that follow their hearts and keep evolving their own sound, even if it strays completely from where they started."
