Joi d'Gervais

From crobar to Kravitz, the DJ from Marseilles loves Miami

"They've been very good to me [at crobar]," Gervais says. "They've helped me out a lot and I feel a real sense of loyalty to the club for their support."

Unlike many in Miami's nightlife theater of the absurd, Gervais passes on the elitist attitude and cynicism, instead holding a positive outlook for the city he has no plans on leaving.

"I love Miami," he says matter-of-factly. "I've been to plenty of other cities to play but I think the clubs here and the music being made is the best in America right now. Sure trance and hip-hop have been played out, but the house and techno are still there."

His current position may make Gervais's outlook overly rosy, but he's aware of the difficulty of building a name in a club scene fraught with guest stars and flavors-of-the-month.

"I'll admit it's not the easiest place to get started but I'd rather live here than say, New York or L.A.," he continues. "Because of the Winter Music Conference and the clubs here, Miami will always be important to DJs."
