This mix was inspired by the Covid-19 outbreak. So used to DJing every weekend for the last two years, and spending every free summer day partying at some festival or stage, it was hard having to sit at home alone. Like many, I felt isolated and became very insecure about the future and importance of DJs, performers, the nightlife and art in general. This led to a strange kind of anger directed at the people I normally love and adore.
This mix is the attempt to turn this anger into something positive. You’ll hear songs that motivate you to keep going and never forget how awesome and wholesome the nightlife is; reminding you what it’s like to dress up in amazing styles and find love and acceptance in dancing together in the dark.

I started DJing in 2014 because I wanted to dance to more alternative music than the Groningen scene had to offer at that time. Soon after that I became a part of the team of radio Oorsmeer, a local, weekly, underground and hipster radio show that has been running for over ten years.
After years of working and DJing mostly in the live music scene of Groningen, in particular that of jazz and indie bands, I’m now taking my first steps into the more electronic dance music genres. The result is a unique sound that transcends the limits of any specific genre but is notably, and without a doubt, me.
