CEDRIC GERVAIS
A Born For It DJ

Cedric Gervais has had an extraordinary life. As a young teenager, Cedric, who is originally from Marseilles, headed to St Tropez. There he got a summer residency at the famed Papa Gaio club. He was only 14 years old, not even legally old enough to party with the people he played for. Then at just 15 years old and not speaking any English he decided Paris wasn't challenging him enough musically so he packed up and moved to Miami.

His first big break came in the form of 'Spirit of my Life' in 2006; Pete Tong made it an Essential New Tune on his BBC Radio 1 show. Cedric followed with a string of high profile remixes for the likes of Dubfire and more 'Essential New Tunes' followed – namely in the form of 2009's 'Mauri's Dream' and most recently 'Molly', of which Madonna is a fan.
