Issa Maïga Issa Maïga Lantremange Even though he’s barely in his early twenties, Issa Maïga can’t be considered a beginner in the world of electronic music. His passion for rhythm has indeed been growing since he was a young kid. From the drums he started playing when he was 8 to his sister’s electronic music that his house resounds with, rhythm literally leads his life. At the age of 15, Issa finds the right people to teach him DJing techniques and mainly to help him discover influences from electronic music artists such as Bangkok Impakt, Alden Tyrell, I-F, Dopplereffekt, Detroit Techno & Chicago House Classics that still inspire him nowadays. Still very (too) young, Issa goes out to the Fuse (Brussels) for the first time. Once again, he quickly gets addicted to the place and sound and regularly goes back to discover labels such as Perlon, Dial and artists like Horror Inc. (Akufen, Marc Leclair), Isolee or Lawrence, which will influence him a lot. It’s there as well that he’ll be discovered by Pierre (Fuse, Lessizmore) and given a tryout for Lessizmore’s 5 years birthday in 2010. Tryout that will reveal itself successful as Issa is nowadays a resident DJ for this label and can so give a full go to his passion: sharing the rhythms that have been fascinating him since his childhood.
