Dutch Dance Agenda December 2019 (NYE Special)

The Holidays are coming up and that means it is time to party! Will you be dancing into the new year to the tunes of one of these famous Dutch DJs? Because, let’s face it: there is no party like a Dutch party!

As a brand, a passion, and a movement, “Dutch Dance” has dominated the international dance scene for years. Many Dutch DJs have gathered a worldwide following and fly all around the globe to entertain one energetic crowd after another. From underground talent to household names, the Dutch party scene has built a reputation for harboring everyone’s kind of DJ. However, with so many successful and famous DJs coming from such a small dot on the map, it is almost impossible to keep track of all their performances in the United States. Luckily, we did that for you.

San Holo

Sander van Dijck, commonly known by his stage name San Holo, is not just a DJ. As DJ, singer, guitar player and lyricist, San taught himself music at an early age. He gained international recognition for his remix of Dr Dre’s “The Next Episode”, which currently has over 200 million views on YouTube. He has toured the world and has gained a credible reputation in the EDM world. Now, San Holo is taking inspiration from bands like Explosions In The Sky and Sigur Ros, working with very ethereal soundscapes and beautiful melancholic music as he creates a new sound. He is motivated by the fact that he’s never found a way to get that kind of vibe into the EDM music he was producing before, until half a year ago when he realized that he could use guitars instead of synth and still make it into a drop and a buildup.

San has released music on several record labels including Spinnin’ Records, OWSLA, Barong Family, and Monstercat. He is also no stranger to the Billboard Dance Charts, as his single “Light” soared to #13 on the Hot Dance/Electronic Chart.

He also founded bitbird, a label which has released several of his singles including “Still Looking” and “Light”. San Holo’s first EP, “Cosmos”, was released via Heroic on 18 September 2014 and was in the Top 100 Electronic category of iTunes.

Sander van Doorn 

Sander van Doorn got in touch with the musical scene in the year of 1995 when he was sixteen years old. His brother’s latest gadget, a “Groovebox 303”, caught his attention.

Time and time again, Sander would borrow his brother’s Groovebox and his nephew’s vinyl records and he played the life out of those records. Since then, Sander’s heart belonged to music and it still does today.

Today, Sander has performed thousands of shows in every corner of the world and released numerous solo records, yet Sander is still part of a group of innovative and progressive artists. Sander’s creative process exists of re-inventing musical styles, taking risks in regards to the sound he creates and most importantly staying ahead of the masses.

With two full-length albums, numerous hit-singles, remixes of the worlds biggest artists, sold out gigs in all major venues and festivals worldwide, his own successful record label Doorn Records, and a weekly radio show named Identity, Sander van Doorn continues his musical journey into the heart of fans around the world.
