DJ Maarten’s love for music and radio started when he was 8. He would listened to the radio all day long to his favorite radio DJ’s and their music. Maarten’s heroes at that time were Ferry Maat(Soul Show) and Robin “Jaydee” Albers(For Those Who Like To Groove) Martijn Krabbe(Dancetrax). They were the one who played the hottest dance music at that time.
He started DJ-ing when he was 10 at a local Church Youth Club in the town where he grew up. Some years later he moved to Enschede where he continued DJ-ing in the Campus student bar (Vestingbar). He also started having is own dance show at the student radio station (Radio Drienerlo and Enschede FM) on the age of 18. During his student years he DJ-ed in almost every club in Enschede. La Conga, De Kapsalon, Circus, de Nieuwmarkt, de 7de Hemel, The Experience and Club Bolke.
Today Maarten is still resident DJ in Club Bolke(Enschede) and incidently DJ-ing in other clubs and festivals as well such as: Paard van Troje, Beachclub Naturel, Whoosah, 538 Idance, Hof Lounge XL, Strandclub Wij.
Through almost 18 years of DJ experience, DJ Maarten can handle almost every music style and knows how to give his audience a good time on the floor! The last 10 years DJ Maarten has focussed more and more on house music. His style can be defined as a combination of EDM, Groovy House, Deep House and Progressive. Maarten loves the minimalistic baseline Giorgio Moroder introduced in the late 70’s (eg I Feel love by Donna Summer) which is still the basis for dance music of today. This baseline is the basis for all his sets including a little ‘Gay twist’ 😉
A few of Maarten’s favorites of today: Disclosure, Chocolate Puma, Mark Knight, My Digital Enemy, EDX, Erik Prydz, Basement Jaxx, The Cube Guys, Prok & Fitch, Ida Engberg, Le Youth, Robyn.
A few! of Maarten’s alltime favorite records: I Feel Love(Donna Summer), From Here To Eternity(Giorgio Moroder), What Time Is Love(The KLF), Dark And Long(Darktrain Mix, Underworld), Sun Rising Up(Deux), Someone(Black Legend), Cry India(Umbuza), Sun Of A Gun(JX), The Sweetest Dream(Blue Lagoon), Summer In The City(Soulvation), Blue Monday(New Order), Way Of Life(Dave Clarke), Insomnia(Faithless).
