DJ, label owner, producer, promoter, journeyman, and in his core still that kid from New York (who just happens to live in Germany now). That’s Iggy Z, in a nutshell...
Born Igor Zaslavsky, he started acquiring a taste for electronic sounds at a very young age. He received his first pair of decks at the age of 13, and from then on he began collecting records and learning to mix at his home. From there, he went the “house party” route and played for his friends, while gaining some valuable experience, and adding some notoriety to his name. This ultimately led to Iggy establishing himself in the NYC nightlife scene, and eventually led to a few residencies. It was during this time that Iggy played alongside legends such as Danny Tenaglia, Danny Howells, Louie Vega, Danny Krivit, Chus & Ceballos, Peter Bailey, and Richie Santana, as well as other local and international house music allstars, learning how to draw and manipulate a crowd in the best way possible.
In 2012, Igor moved from New York to Frankfurt, Germany and jumped right into the turmoil- in what was not necessarily a culture shock, but nevertheless a new experience for him; As the deep house and tribal house vibes that he was used to from the states were infused with the infamous teutonic techno sounds that hail from the German nation. Iggy embraced that culture and immersed himself right into it, adopting a more hard-hitting and relentless pace in his tune selection, while still maintaining his house origins whenever it suited the vibe!
Currently he works for a music tv channel (iM1) and travels the worlds’ hotspots, trending locations, and festivals, always soaking up new influences and maintaining his status as one of Frankfurts most exciting “newcomers”- it’s just that this particular “newcomer” has more than ten years of experience and knowledge under his belt and a phonebook that reads like a “who is who” of the worldwide electronic music scene.
