D.Dan April 27th QUEST404 Takes Paris on a Trip: A Night of Techno, Bass, and Cosmic Sounds at Cabaret Sauvage


Parisian dancefloors vibrated with a new energy as QUEST404 took over the iconic Cabaret Sauvage for its first nightclub event of the season. The night, running from midnight to 6am, promised a journey into the heart of electronic music’s underground.

Headlining the event was Berlin techno king D.Dan, known for his pursuit of the unholy trinity of raw grooves, slippery psychedelia, and mutant-machine paranoia (according to his Resident Advisor bio). Imagine the pulsating energy of a classic techno record, twisted and warped by a mischievous spirit. D.Dan’s sets are journeys into the unknown, where driving rhythms meet swirling hypnotic, psychedelic soundscapes, all underscored by a sense of unease that keeps you hooked.

But D.Dan wasn’t the only star of the night. QUEST404’s “Originals” format brought together a stellar lineup. Paris got a taste of French bass music revelation Beatrice M., while Finnish UFO Sansibar, a specialist in cosmic sets combining trance, house and electro, offered a truly unique experience.

QUEST404’s night at Cabaret Sauvage offered a thrilling experience for Parisian clubbers, blurring the lines between genres and pushing the boundaries of electronic music.

There was a certain magic in the air this past Saturday night at Cabaret Sauvage. Perhaps it was the anticipation of the season’s first QUEST404 event, or maybe the lineup that promised a journey through the underground. Whatever the reason, a collective effervescence pulsed through the crowd. This wasn’t your average Parisian club night. The energy was different. D.Dan’s set wasn’t just music; it was an experience, and the crowd responded in kind. Paris, when it comes to the truly great DJs – think DVS1 or Rødhåd – attracts a special kind of partygoer. These are dancers who are there for the music, ready to lose themselves in the rhythm and truly shake their butts. It’s a beautiful thing to witness, a testament to the power of electronic music to bring people together and create a shared experience.

QUEST404 Paris is a monthly event series dedicated to celebrating the diverse world of club culture. They showcase a range of electronic music styles, from the driving techno of Berlin to the genre-bending sounds of international artists. If you’re looking for a night of cutting-edge electronic music in Paris, QUEST404 is definitely worth checking out.
