Martin Joseph Léonard Bresso, better known by his stage name Tchami, is a French record producer and DJ from Paris. A founding member of the Pardon My French collective, he is best known for his solo work and regarded as a pioneer of the future house genre alongside Dutch DJs Oliver Heldens and Don Diablo.
Tchami often performs with the persona of a priest and a church theme. He wears a clerical collar and includes visuals such as an altar and stained glass windows. In an interview he explained that “it is [his] message, being spiritual. I think my music is about that too.”
Tchami most commonly produces future house music, and came into widespread recognition after releasing a remix of “Go Deep” by Janet Jackson. Tchami has done several supporting tours with successful electronic music artists such as Skrillex, Diplo, and DJ Snake. He is currently part of the Pardon My French team, a collective of four French DJs composed of DJ Snake, Mercer, Malaa and himself. Throughout the year 2016 and early 2017, DJ Snake did a world tour with Pardon My French Tour with Tchami and Mercer.
