Artist Spotlight: Tchami
~ [ 中文 ］~
Tchami (original name Martin Bresso) is a French producer and DJ from Paris. Tchami is regarded as the pioneer of the future house genre, although Oliver Heldens says otherwise. He refers to future house genre as blend of smooth, uplifting deep house with flashes of EDM bursts added in. Since Future House’s inception, his sound has taken a more grittier and darker sound comparable to G-House (Ghetto House).
In the beginning of his career he co-produced three tracks on Lady Gaga’s 2013 album ARTPOP, the same album that charted top ten in over twenty countries. During the same year Tchami produced his break out single “Promesses” and “Shot Caller”, both were re-released with “Promesses” then peaking as number seven on UK singles chart.
Since then, Tchami has done numerous remixes and collaboration with other well known electronic artists such as DJ Snake, Martin Garrix, and Kaleem Taylor. He has also done several supporting tours with well known artists Skrillex and Diplo. In 2015, Tchami launched his own record label “Confession”, in which he has released his newer singles on. The label currently specializes in the genres Future House, Bass House, Ghetto House Electro House, Deep House, and Dance.
Tchami has toured all over the world, since the beginning of his career with shows in Africa, Australia, and Europe. He just ended his “The Prophecy” tour around the U.S. which caused a huge buzz. Even before that he invited fellow french players Malaa, DJ Snake & Mercer for a Pardon My French Tour, that was one of the most talked about tours second to only the Shelter tour featuring Porter Robinson & Madeon.
Tchami is now touring Asia for the first time, playing in Shanghai tonight at Fusion before traveling to Korea and Singapore to be the mainstage headliner for ULTRA Music Festival before eventually heading back to the U.S.
