Born Ismail Bouchkhi, the co-founder of Distrikt Paris (DJ & Labels Owner) , is deeply passionate about vinyls. Raised by a music loving family, his musical culture is as sharp as it is eclectic. Born of the “crate digger” generation of DJs - Escko can spend hours, even days, searching for rare gems to enrich his ever expanding record collection.
He has played in some of Paris' biggest clubs, from the legendary Rex Club to the influential CONCRETE. Lately his talent has begun to explore outside of the French capital, booked in some of the best underground clubs and festivals in France and outside, such as Le château perché Festival, Mimo Festival, The Berliners Hoppetosse & Club der Visionäre to name a few.
With time, he is perfecting his technique. His taste is becoming more refined, turning his sets into a narrative. Navigating between the sous genres of electronic music ; from Minimal Techno, passing through House or even Electro, he applies himself to keeping the quality of the chosen records as the guiding thread of his sets.
