Introducing Jean Remi, aka EVADED, who is a young Music Producer and DJ based in Dublin. Evaded’s been a busy guy for the last few years, from teaching himself music production techniques and learning to DJ, to performing live with his band “The Catalyst”. He lives for music and and we think he’s going places.
Evaded came to our attention when he joined the music group in his local youth club, Swan Youth Service. There he was able to access a music production suite, recording equipment, instruments like guitar, piano and drums and also DJ equipment. He’s been busy putting all these resources to work over the past few years as well as writing for his band “The Catalyst” who performed this year at the Irish Youth Music Awards. The beats for the “The Catalyst” tracks are produced by Evaded and he uses FLstudio and real instruments to get the job done. Even with all his music work and balancing full time studies in college, Evaded still finds time to get a dancefloor bouncing with his DJ sets. Evaded’s music draws on Hip Hop, Dub and R’n'B but recently he has been experimenting with playing and writing house music.
