DETROIT -- French DJ Agoria is set to make his mark in the U.S. with a national tour that concludes with a very special performance on the Vitamin Water Main Stage at the Movement Electronic Music Festival over Memorial Day weekend, May 29-31, 2010. Though, the name Agoria may have only recently entered the vernacular of America’s clubbing population, but this is not his first time performing stateside or in the Motor City. "For me, it was quite a gift to be invited back to Detroit. I was really excited and proud” he states.

Agoria has been making a name for himself stateside and worldwide with the rave reviews he has received for his Balance 16:Agoria, as well as a successful Winter Music Conference debut. "Balance 16 is interesting because I showcase a different type of music" he goes on. "As a DJ, what really excites me is to find the right balance." Now, Agoria hopes to increase on this success with his American tour -- starting with New York City at 50 Bowery (May 21) then going to San Francisco at Pulse One (May 22) and onto Detroit at the Pulse Lounge (May 27) and the Movement festival (May 31), which will be celebrating its 10th anniversary.

Born in France, a young Sebastian Devaud never intended to be known as Agoria. "It comes from parties we organized in my home town Lyon, France when I was 20" he said. "The name of the parties were 'Agora' (which in Greek means: "A place of congregation"), and one day my friends pushed me to spin some records and wrote the name 'Agoria' on the flyer. I didn't know who he (Agoria) was and I asked my friends; they answered not to worry, that Agoria was a good DJ … Then the day of the event they told me, one hour before the DJ set time of ''Agoria'... that it will be my turn and I have to hurry up and look for my records!"

Whether he chose the name or not, Agoria is now an established figure in the world of electronic music. A technical master of track selection and mixing that, one would think, has a complex outlook toward his craft. This couldn’t be farther from the truth with Agoria maintaining the simple philosophy: "I love to play long shots… The thing is to have fun.”

Agoria is also playing in advance of Movement on May 22 @ Boom Boom Room (www.boomboomroom.ca) in Windsor, Canada and at the Pulse Lounge (www.pulsedetroit.com) in Detroit on May 27.
