The world has a number of must visit clubs for house music fans Berghain Panorama Bar, Smartbar, Lux to name a few. For many an afro house lover across Europe, DJOON, a cathedral to afrohouse, is the ONE club you have to experience first-hand. For Londoners it’s the last flight to Paris, a meal in the restaurant, quick change at the nearby hotel, before joining the great vibes and ambience created by their diverse crowd of dancers who come to party and show out
For almost 20 years the club, a shelter for dancers & music lovers, has been a first step in Paris for many artists, bringing artists such as Culoe De Song, Shimza, Black Coffee, Osunlade, Âme, Levon Vincent, The Martinez Brothers to France (and sometimes Europe) for the very first time, and playing a key role in bringing the afro-house sound to the old continent. Borrowing its name from a Persian word that can be translated to “soul”, Parisian house music temple Djoon has been tirelessly defending soulful music in it’s largest sense, bringing over emerging talents and timeless legends alike for the delight of its eclectic and forward thinking crowd.
Family, due to the impact of the global pandemic, the club we have come to love needs our help. If we want more seminal nights like Boddhi Satva’s ‘Ancestral’, support the label via bandcamp, buy the Djoon merchandise and as the world’s clubs open, go and experience an Afro House night at the one European club that opened it’s doors and embraced our community.
