In Native American Culture the Heyoka is, in simple terms, the clown of the tribe. But he is much more than most people imagine a clown to be. Everything he does in his play is aimed at making people laugh, so they feel themselves and let go of entrenched attitudes or concepts. He does everything in order to heal and encourage with laughter. Some years ago Jacob was inspired by this figure. On the one hand, he deeply identifies himself with the characteristics of this character. On the other hand, he tries his best to act more like a Heyoka. His love for electronic music started with his first club visit in his hometown Berlin over ten years ago. 2019 he was lucky enough to have time but most of all the right mentor, Elias Goldmund, to learn how to DJ. While playing Heyoka forgets everything around him and just enjoys the moment.
