Steven de Peven, aka Awanto 3, has music running through his veins – but what he’s best known for is his versatile output: not limiting himself to countless releases (on prestigious labels such as Rush Hour, Dekmantel and Voyage Direct) and a DJ career that took him to Panorama Bar, Concrete, Nitsa, Village Underground and even SXSW, Awanto 3 always strives to expand his activities and experiment with new projects. He’s released books, initated unexpected collaborations, dove into the world of multi-media and even opened up a shop. It’s probably his eclectic selections that made him so popular with audiences around the world: from boogie, to disco, to booty, to house, Steven never hesitates to surprise us with some afro-beat, an acid track or even techno if it pleases him. A multi-faceted, prolific artist that will undoubtly be one of the highlights of Ampere Open Air.
