Pierre Sarkozy, the deejay son of former French president Nicolas Sarkozy, will be behind the turntables at this year’s Rave Atzmaut in the Rishon Lezion Park Amphitheater.
The sought-after French DJ, better known as Mosey, has performed in Israel twice before.
“When I last visited Israel, I walked around the Jaffa flea market and went into a store that sells second-hand vinyl records. It was very nice, and that’s how I was exposed a little to the local music. I also have a friend, a Jewish DJ who performs here often and who has told me about the Israeli music scene. I hope to incorporate some songs in the Independence Day show,” he told Ynet in a phone interview from Paris.
The Rave Atzmaut party is the country’s largest annual Independence Day party. This year’s lineup also includes Skazi, Aviv Gefen, Hadag Nachash, among others.
“In all my shows, I like to adapt myself to the mood, the energy of the crowd. This time, I’ll play electronic music, house, soul and hip-hop. I always combine African and American influences. I don’t know much about music in Israel; but because I love traditional music,” he said.
