With over 10 years of praise earned through excellent solo projects or working with partners ranging from Andrew Weatherall, James Murphy, Trevor Jackson, Ata and Optimo, Ivan is easily the world's favourite Parisian rogue.
The genre defying French producer has the ability to play music like a raw conduit between his famously obscure records and the dancefloor’s strobe-soaked bodies. Injecting something of himself seamlessly into the mix along the way, he belongs to the top table of world DJs.
A crusader in the fight to prove that electronic music can be so much more than a one dimensional soundtrack for a night on the lash, he has become a symbol of the revolution taking place at underground clubs cross the world.

Lost and Found / No Strings Attached
No Strings Attached //
Steve Cass & Justin Wilson aka No Strings Attached started hosting House and Techno parties back in 1995. Inspired by the Chicago/Detroit movement and attending club nights such as Slam at The Arches, Pure Edinburgh and Charlie Chester's nights at The Arena in Middlesborough their record collection started to grow.
They felt their music had to be shared. There was a small venue at Gala Fairydean Football Club were old men used to meet up to play dominos and the odd card game. Sitting one night after the match looking around the pair decided this could be a good place to host a party. A few weeks later, records were boxed up a sound system was hired along with some dodgy lighting and a smoke machine. The opening night was May 1995 with two inspiring friends of ours Rich Bell and Scott Ferguson aka Robot 84. Rich played regular club nights in Reading and Scott was a familiar face on the Edinburgh club circuit. The night was a sell out everyone was fuelled by the music and ready for more.
Fortnightly parties commenced and we were joined by regular guests such as Slam's Stuart McMillan, Fat Cat's Alex Knight, Sub Club's Harri & Darren Price who was touring with Underworld at the time.. Craig Walsh, Justin Robertson & Full Circles Phil Perry were also on the billing.
Moving to The Venue in Edinburgh during 2001, Chicago's Marshall Jefferson joined the line ups along with their favourite producers Andrew Weatherall & Justin Robertson. This was followed by Soma records duo Slam, Miss Kittin and Phil Kieran who made his Scottish Debut. Continuing their passion for music NSA hosted some memorable parties in intimate spaces while Underworld's Darren Emerson joined the lads in 2007, Andrew Weatherall became a regular guest along with Slam acts like Harvey McKay and Deetron also fitted the bill.
In 2010 the slow downtempo groove began to take hold. The whole Balearic sound was back - a perfect time to host Andrew Weatherall & Sean Johnston's night "A Love From Outer Space"
Three ALFOS parties were held in the capital followed by a return home to "The Dean" with Justin Robertson, Finitribe, Haules Baules and Shoom's Danny Rampling.
Now 2014 - Steve and Justin explained, "Snafu Aberdeen is one club we have heard many good reports about. We are delighted to be part of this and why not start our new venture up north with the weird and wonderful Ivan Smagghe".
