Selfserve

 

Born in Latvia, with a Ukrainian mother and a Russian father, Arthur Kokanov (SelfServe) moved to Canada at 8 years old and basically became a cultural mut. Mostly dazed and confused he roamed the streets until he fell into a job as a lighting technician at Guverment Nightclub.

In that grimy darkness of House and Techno he found himself, and without knowing it he started his path to become a music selector. As he met some of the best DJ’s in the world (Mathew Deer, Seth Troxler, Deadmau5, Ritchie Hawtin & more) his taste started to evolve into what he now calls the psychedelic experience. Focusing on Funk, Disco, Electronica, minimal and techno, his sets are created to hypnotise and launch you into outerspace
