One28 revolutionizes the economic paradigm for DJs. This startup improves the musical universe of the night owl, giving it the possibility to interact with the DJ and offering him a voice.
One 28 It quickly gained international recognition less than a year after its launch party in Monaco. Founded by Adrien Crastes, One28’s mission is to make it easier for customers to listen to their favorite songs at disco, events and other venues, simply by scanning the app, and suggesting music to DJ and tip deposit. If the request is rejected by the DJ, the deposit will be refunded immediately.
Adrien’s journey to solve this problem began with his BA in General Mathematics and Economics from Bucknell University in the US, where he was a Division I student-athlete. Adrien also thinks about how DJs can bring them closer to their audience. In 2017 he realized the app was the perfect solution. Motivated by his desire to deepen his knowledge, Adrien decided to pursue postgraduate studies at the Institute of Finance and Insurance Sciences in France, where he is currently working towards an actuarial diploma while simultaneously managing One28. One28 solves a very common frustration: how to easily order your favorite songs from a DJ in the best way for everyone. Obviously, DJs do a great job of selecting music during the evening, but with hundreds of people in attendance, they can struggle when it comes to playing crowd favorites. This app facilitates that connection so they can move audience members to 128 beats per minute more often than not — the ecstatic and hedonistic beats as well as the heartbeats most recognizable in music.”

They have just secured their first fundraising from strategically selected private investors for more efficient development of the company. The most tip a DJ receives in an evening on the app is €4,060 at TWIGA in Monaco.
