Edouard aka DOOKS

Born in 1989, Edouard (alias Dooks) is a DJ and young entrepreneur with a focus on media and music. He has a background in journalism s well as corporate communication. Before devoting himself to music, he wrote articles and interviews for TRAX magazine, stylistberlin.com and crazyjack.fr. 

Raised in Paris, at nineteen years old, in despite of an anchored French culture, Edouard moved to Berlin as he felt the Parisian lifestyle didn’t suit him anymore. His passion for the German language and desire to discover new things motivated his decision. Edouard’s fascination for electronic music began at an early age. Former member of the Cracki roster (a young and promising cultural and social music project from Paris) and the SUPERNOVA Project , a Paris-based collective testing and applying scientific experimentations to the Techno atmosphere through music, dance, poetry, video and cognitive sciences. In 2013 he brought to life the project he had always envisioned : found a music label. Edouard now lives in London where he fulfills his role of CEO and co-founder of LumièresLaNuit.

During the summer 2015, Edouard launched his own techno label, An der Grenze, with first release 'Fragments EP' (ADG001) by young Belgian producer Icon Template. 

At the beginning of 2016, he launched TONESERIES with LumièresLaNuit key artist David K. The 1st EP 'TS10' by David K will be released in March.

A real aficionado, Edouard enjoys the Arts as a whole and more specifically music and design, perusing vinyl stores and websites looking for the latest, most unique records or design products.

As a DJ Dooks played in clubs such as Trabendo , Panic Room and Le Nouveau Casino (Paris) as well as for the very conceptual Supernova Project’s parties. He was featured at one of their latest shows at movie theatre Le Balzac. Dooks also played abroad: in Berlin at Farbfernseher , Anita Berber , Griesmühle and Club der Visionäre (CDV) (Berlin), at the Sonar Off Festival (Barcelona) on the occasion of LumièresLaNuit showcases and at the Trontano open air festival (mountains of north Italy).
