Since the late 90's dj Younès Medinas started to buy his first records and soon after that he was already playing in many small clubs where he worked himself up to be a fast growing dj making and "with much respect" earning his way to the top.
Next step for him was to play and travel more often around the world to expand his career as a dj. This resulted in many gigs in Holland, Germany, France, Portugal and all over Spain... He also is resident of WowPeople in Barcelona where he plays a few times a year.
After listening to dj Younès Medinas we truly can say that this guy knows how to play the roof off the building, as well as a very good dj it's a pleasant thing to see him staying himself, as nice and positive as the first time we met him. His dj-sets are pure and so alive, mixing different styles of electronic music from progressive to deep and tribal house and putting unusual tracks together so well that most people don't even notice before finding themselves into a "Medinas" journey........ to the underground !!!
Currently he’s playing every friday at belgium’s greatest club La Rocca (Backstage), every saturday at Complex (with more then 2500 visitors every saturday), and every sun – and monday at Creamm afterhour...
