William Kouam Djoko
William Kouam Djoko was born near the Dutch The Hague and was raised by a Cameroonian father and Dutch-Ukrainian mother. Ever since his childhood he’s been affected by rhythm, soul and music in general. Starting off as a (professional) dancer, he ended up with playing music when he joined forces with Pete Bandit, Jason Shae and Newton Da Costa to form Jason & The Argonauts.
William’s solo career, which really started in 2008, with a full 12” on ThirtyOneTwenty, will always benefit from all the experience he accumulated being one of the Argonauts. The “Hard Loving” release earned international respect and gave William a perfect way to present himself as one of Amsterdam’s most diverse and creative house producers. A lot of big gun producers and DJ’s picked up William’s interesting sound which earned him spots on some of the most respected compilations around like the Watergate and Balance series.
