Breakbot (DJ Set)

Martín Miguel

Saturday Jul 29

10:00 pm



This event is 18 and over

Paris-born Thibaut Berland, aka Breakbot, incorporates the electro-vibes of growing up in Paris in the 80s. Tracks with modern riffs and hip-hop samples blended with his personal style create an experience reminiscent of an off-the-beaten-path Daft Punk.

***Ages 18-20 by advance ticket only.*** No photo/video allowed. Advance ticket sales end one hour before doors.

Emerging electro wunderkid Breakbot crafts party tunes. Big ones.

Following in the footsteps of French electro duo Justice, Parisian Thibaut Berland aka Breakbot has mastered the art of melting together all the best elements of dance, electro and hip hop with skill and precision. And a laptop.

Born in 1981, Thibaut was immersed in the sights and sounds of the subsequent decade, and remained appropriately pulled between his love of animation graphics/comics, and music. He chose neither one clear
path, nor another. Possessing a degree in computer graphics, and having created his first animation short film co-directed with two friends, Thibaut now makes music videos, commercials and such. By day. By night however, he cooks up choice cut electronic music, experimenting with beats, layers, keyboards, vocals, and Daft Punk-esque get-yo-funk-on basslines.
