Richie Hawtin, David Morales and Louie Vega discuss the art of playing differently, as a paradigm shift occurs in DJ performance, and how after 25 years of performing on rotary mixers, these New York house legends recently made the switch to the MODEL... View details ⇨
Jon Gaiser has been part of my MINUS team since the very early days and I can honestly say that without Jon and his incredible releases and live shows, the history of MINUS would not look the same. Part of being involved in Electronic Music so long is the pleasure of seeing artists (and friends) grow up around you, developing their ideas and focusing in on their own specific sound. Jon or...

It's four years since I was at Coachella 2013, walking around and wondering why DJs were not commanding any of the main out door stages (other than fist pumping EDM acts pressing play on their pre-set playlists). Where was the spontaneity and creativity that thrives in the very best DJ sets, that are more like an adventure of frequencies rather than a collection of crowd pleasers?! Since then...

There’s so many summer festivals when it comes to the Netherlands and actually none of them are a bad choice as they all offer something unique... So how to choose which one(s) to do each year?
Well, this year it was quite easy as all I had to do was open up a hand-written letter handed to me personally from the promoters of the Paradigm Festival. The letter looked back at my career and... View details ⇨

I’m excited to have another House Music legend make the move to MODEL 1! Dj David Morales’s commitment to electronic music and the art of DJing is one of longevity and dedication. I remember dancing in the early 1990’s to his adventurous sets at the Red Zone in NYC and to think now, all these years later that he’ll be controlling his unique way of mixing with the #MODEL1 is an incredible honour!
I’m excited to announce my Ibiza dates for 2017 where I rejoin my original island family at Cocoon on Mondays at Amnesia Ibiza! As the island continues to change and develop I felt it was important to remember where the magic really lies on the White Island… on the dance floor, sharing music and experiences with family, friends & fans. A step in the right direction as we all continue to look... View details ⇨
I met Raf Simons years ago at 10 Days Of Techno in Ghent, Belgium. He sat for hours quietly listening to me until the early hours of the morning. Afterwards I found out that he was a huge fan of my Plastikman album ‘Consumed’ and linked by our shared love of music, art and fashion we stayed in contact and developed a great collaborative friendship!
