The reasons why I left social media (English version)

Cliquez ici pour la version française…


If you’re reading this post, it’s either because you intend to unsubscribe or because you’re curious about the reasons behind my departure from social media.

Let’s briefly recap what these platforms were originally meant for during their inception: In the realm of technology, a social network serves as a platform to connect diverse individuals and facilitate discussions on specific topics. In a way, social networks trace their origins back to early Internet forums, discussion groups, and chat rooms.

Until the COVID era, these services allowed people to engage with family, friends, and affinity groups. However, since 2023, social networks have taken a different trajectory, emphasizing uninteresting or sponsored content. The social aspect has all but disappeared, leaving only commercial interests at the forefront. We find ourselves inundated with irrelevant information that lowers the overall quality. Even when we try to share something interesting with our community, our messages often go unnoticed or get deleted without notification.

Given that my time is precious and I don’t want to waste it, I’ve decided to delete my social media accounts. Those who wish to reach out can still email me at universdj at or leave a message on Hearthis.

The time I used to spend on social media will now be dedicated to improve the quality of my websites and exploring music production.


Les raisons pour lesquelles j’ai quitté les réseaux sociaux (version française)


Si vous lisez ce billet, c’est que vous avez l’intention de vous désinscrire ou que vous êtes curieux de connaître les raisons de mon désabonnement des réseaux sociaux.

Faisons un petit résumé de ce à quoi étaient destinés ces sites lors de leur création :
Dans le domaine des technologies, un réseau social consiste en un service permettant de regrouper diverses personnes afin de créer un échange sur un sujet particulier ou non. En quelque sorte, les réseaux sociaux trouvent leurs origines dans les forums, groupes de discussion et salons de chat introduits dès les premières heures d’Internet. 

Jusque dans les années Covid, ces services permettaient d’échanger avec ses proches / amis / groupes d’appartenance.

Cependant depuis 2023,  les réseaux ont pris une trajectoire opposée souhaitant mettre en avant des contenus sans intérêts ou sponsorisés. Le côté social a totalement disparu et seul le côté mercantile est priorisé. Nous sommes plongés dans un flot d’informations inutiles qui nivellent le niveau par le bas et lorsque l’on souhaite poster quelque chose d’intéressant à sa communauté, les messages ne sont pas relayés où tout simplement supprimés sans notification. 

Vu que mon temps est précieux et que je ne veux pas en perdre, j’ai décidé de supprimer mes comptes. Ceux qui souhaitent me joindre peuvent toujours m’écrire à l’adresse universdj à ou me laisser un petit mot sur Hearthis.

Le temps que je ne passerai plus sur les réseaux sociaux sera utilisé pour améliorer de mes sites internet et m’initier à la production de sons.

New Season 2008-2009

We are now starting a new season in really bad economical days (here in France). People don’t have money, clubs are closing one by one… Bad commercial music is unfortunaly always there… Fm Radios have never had so bad taste… But, we will Univers DJ and my friends from Groove Session, House Dancers and others continue to defend the thing called house in the way it was in the 90’s… Really Eclectic !

Not only boom boom, but a good selection of music coming also from others genres that we enjoy like hip hop, reggae, soul, rock, salsa… Just to have fun !

So, I am really optimistic for monthes to come. I think that people will always dance, but not in the same places. In bars, hostels, small concert halls, garden, showers…

Here are some photos that give me some hope for the future :
Luv Music @ Djoon Club the 12th of setember with Orel and Fuki
The 5 Beats @ Rex Club the 13th of september with Franck Roger / Quentin Harris / Dj Rame

Don’t forget to support your Djs and your local parties ! House music is you, me, trees, bees… And if we want something, we must do it ourselves. No one has never and will never help us…

That Soulful Show : not as regular as always

Hello !

For more than 2 years, That Soulful Show was freely available for my radios partners. I would like to thank them to have put this music on their waves.

Now, That Soulful Show won’t be as regular as past two years. Some new projects and some little health problems compel myself to slow down.

But I will still be there broadcasting shows with (if not a live show) an enhanced Podcast giving you the ability to have into your Itunes player or your Ipod all covers and sometimes links to buy songs.

I will also try to give more contents with photos / videos from parties.


Happy New Year !

Happy New Year

Dear readers,

Have a fantastic, wonderful, soulful, happy new year 2008 ! May your wishes come true !

As you know, I am not too talkative in my blog, but holidays’ time is a good time to take some new resolutions, I will try to give you and you could also give me a hand to notice what’s new and what’s good in our soulful house community.

I am the President of a french soulful house community called Univers DJ. I think I will use some informations on this website and give my personal point of view about all the events, new songs, artists and so ane. This way, you will know more about myself.

I want to thank all the artists producing this great music, all my loyal listeners and visitors. I also like to thank all the people (my family, artists, labels, radios, friends, clubs, bars, hardware and songs shops, dj software companies) who help me to spread this positive music to the world.

Some new projects are on the way (new parties in some nice concert hall with big sound system), more radio maintenance (Groove Session , RMS, Station Portail, …), next Soulful Meeting @ La Vague with some great friends Djs from France and perhaps from Baltimore or NY… Stay tune, I’m working on it.

So, I think 2008 will be a great year for Soulful Music. Spreading this sound is an incredible challenge and give me the oportunity to meet incredible nice people : some new friends thinking the way I think.

So, as a present and to start this year really smooth, I post this live mixshow I have made on Groove Session Radio the 31st of december. A kind of tribute to Yoruba with great Djs producer I love like Osunlade, Boddhi Satva, Abicah Soul, Casamena, Karizma… I hope they will keep and increase this good work. When I play this kind of music, people forget all their worries and let themselves be carried by the rhythm of percussions.

Peace, much love xxx
