A project of Yan Krassowski, born in 1979 in Darmstadt, Germany. His love and passion for electronic music started back in the mid 90`s at the young age of 15, when he discovered the local techno scene. Early influences were DJ`s like Sven Väth or DJ Dag and first experiences in techno clubs, listening to the legends Omen or Dorian Gray in Frankfurt a.M.
He started to spin techno tunes at small parties until psytrance changed his musical direction. Along with a group of mates – the Gecko Crew, he organised a couple of small parties in his home area, and began to play progressive/psytrance Dj sets under the alias Yan Gecko.
After a couple of years, playing at numerous national and some international gigs, he joined BMSS Records and released a few tracks on different compilations.
Yan’s favourite sounds were always rather deep and mystical ones. After some life changing dancefloor experiences at big festivals, he fell completely in love with forest psy and more nighttime orientated music.
In the year of 2012, the Sequoya project was born. The debut EP “Nomad” came out in 2013 on BMSS Records, 2015 the “Singularity EP” on Sangoma, followed by tracks on different compilations and Labels. His music can be described as deep, flowing forest psy with a unique style of storytelling and remarkable sound design. While he really enjoys playing his liveset around the world, Yan still loves to DJ as well - telling deep and twisted musical stories.
