Ivan Dorn is a singer, DJ and producer, MTV European Music Awards winner, with an overabundance of quirky uniqueness.
His boundary pushing fashion style, fancy footwork and outgoing contagious personality has lit the European music industry like a wildfire. His unique blend of 90s house, pop, nu-disco, funk and free jazz, came as a breath of fresh air to the suffocated Eastern Europe pop scene. Within months Ivan Dorn and his band filled sports arenas around CIS countries and he quickly earned a spot as a judge on The Voice Ukraine.
After conquering the Eastern European market, Ivan Dorn’s international debut starts at YourEDM with «Collaba», a provocative Lo-Fi hip-hop single infused with elements of jazz, pop, funk and sprinkled with a touch of EDM.
In 2018 Ivan was travelling to Uganda to film a music video Afrika with Masaka Kids Africana dance crew. Now this story grew in a strong charity project AFRIKA (premiered ad Complex and Billboard) with a main goal to build a dancing school for Masaka Kids Afrikana in Uganda.
If there is one thing we’ve learned about Ivan over the years, is that if you think you have him all figured out, you are probably already one step behind.
