Over the next few years, Yan performed throughout the Romandie (French part of Switzerland) and also become known in the Swiss German part of Switzerland by playing at parties such as "Monokultur" and "Stahlklang Detroit" held at the famous club "Markethalle" in Bern. His dark, brute techno was also all the rave, he performed at huge events such as "Goliath" in Roggwill, the mythical rave held for literally thousands of people.
In 2000, bored by the incessant tribal loops and rhythms that were swamping the Techno scene in those days, Yan created an collective called "PKSystem" designed to promote more "Electro" sounds. He acquired a reputation of having an "ear" for new talent, and was one of the few who were willing to travel to the 4 corners of Switzerland just to listen to a new live act or Dj. Over the next 3 years PKS organised some 20 successful parties, often inviting unknown but talented artists to the delight of their public.
At the same time, Yan launched his own digital label called !Organism aiming not only to release his own tracks under his pseudo name of "Das" but also to welcome other artists who shared the same approach to sound such as: Max Cooper, Hans Bouffmyhre, Kimono, Kane Roth, Mindcurve, Go!diva and Juan Baeza. !Organism has gotten huge support from the industry’s main players such as Paco Osuna, The Advent, Mistress Barbara, Oliver Lang, Patrick Bateman and Mike Wall among many others!
Today, Yan Stricker's sets, tainted with melancholic Techno and Electro, are sometimes dark with a tendency of swerving to the more "intellectual" form of music yet are always festive and rhythmic, keeping the dance floor in perpetual suspense. His sets tell wonderful stories which sweeps the listener into wondrous adventures.
