DJ Philip Goyette|DC
Known for his eclectic ear and hard-to-beat-crate digging skills, Philip Goyette has built a solid foundation in his new base - Washington, D.C.
Goyette is a native of Minneapolis and spent his youth braving the cold, stark winters with the warm sounds of bands like Broken Social Scene, early Interpol, and Bjork. It was this early love of music that would eventually grow into his passion for DJing and producing later on in life, but he took the path towards his eventual career slowly.
Spending his days working at an environmental non-profit, Goyette spent his evenings immersed in music, without regard for genre but a developing a deep appreciation for new sounds. “When I was 18, I lived with a few friends and our apartment was very much the after work hangout spot and I would always supply the music.”
Goyette’s introduction to electronic music was through Boards of Canada and LCD Soundsystem and both bands played a pivotal role in steering his next career move. “In some weird way, I might say that BOC inspired me to start DJing even though they are the antithesis of ‘DJ music.’ Listening to them really opened my ear to more of an electronic sound and helped me grow beyond listening to just indie rock.”
Though he always knew his life would either take a political path or that he would become more involved in music, his move to the nation’s capitol and the infectious music scene there, cemented his choice to pursue music. Since moving here he has worked his way through nearly every club and bar on U Street and H street and has earned himself a weekly residency at the famed Eighteenth Street Lounge. His sound has grown from indie dance and rock to spinning deep house and tech.
Goyette has opened for many renowned artists including: Juan Maclean, Major Lazer (Diplo & Switch), Still Going, Maxmillion Dunbar, Chaz Bundwick (Toro Y Moi), Dave Nada, Matt Nordstrom, The Presets, Flume, D'Julz, Eprom, Soviet Panda, Insideout, Eric Cloutier, Victor Simonelli, A. Williams, Mosca, James Teej, 2000 and One
