DJ Zen was born in France but is established in Quebec, Canada, since 1996. At an early age and thanks to his family, he was exposed to all kinds of music. His father brought him into contact with electronic music from Jean-Michel Jarre and Vangelis when he was 10 years old. From the ages of 15 to 25, he listened to hard rock and death metal and was part of a band, playing bass and electric guitar. DJ Zen is mostly self-taught, taking private music lessons, learning through books and watching music engineering DVD tutorials to constantly improve himself.
