I think this is the fifth time we do zomerkriebels in a row….and it’s been a blast
so far…doing festivals all summer long is a blessing! Thanks Takayama for another year!
Only one stage this year, but the mainstage at least…on decks Sick Individuals, Dannic,
Jay Hardway, KrissKross Amsterdam and Chocolate Puma was surprisingly awesome!

Sixth time in a row kbkvisuals asked me to host the x stage for them at the legendary awakefest weekender.
I had a great stage to work with…a huge upgrade from last year actually and great artists to vj for.
Its weird…this year awakefest was not during my birthday so Monika Kruse, BTRAITS, Joseph Capriati,
Adam Beyer, Kobosil, Dave Clarke and Floorplan DID NOT play at my birthday party this year :-)

Third show for PureNRG live and everything is slowly getting into place. This show was kind
complicated due to the mapping. It was a very complex stage and it was pretty difficult actually
to get all the visuals working on it. Im happy i made all my content 4k wide and made a good mix
of deep, film and graphic content. Actually i was really happy with the show and that our content
held up against that of other acts. And like i said in my last purenrg post….a nice hosting party
is worth a ton of gold…thanks Brady for having us!

This is the second show we did with the tour visuals we made for pureNRG live.
The O2 academy in Leeds was a perfect location for checking out the visuals
in a calmer, more relaxed manner then in San Francisco. It was good to get
a little more structure in the show since the visuals are still brand new and we
got a little more time to see what works and what doesn’t. I even had time
to put in color and timing cues for the light and laser operators.

PURENRG asked me to create some the visuals for their new LIVE concept.
10-12 exclusve tracks per set and an exclusive number of sets throughout the season.
The premiere show was in San Francisco….at the mighty Bill Graham Civic Auditorium.
Pretty awesome venue if you ask me and a pretty awesome line up as well.
Also i was really amazed by the quality of the screens and house VJs and their
content…and not to forget the hosting. Its great to be greeted well by an
awesome local crew…VJ VOODOO THANK YOU!

An integrated lights and visual show is a big step up for the second room!
It’s on nights as these i don’t even mind VJing for 10 hours straight!

Sixth year in a row doing this Nacht van concept with Timeless events, Extreme productions

YES WE DRANK THE COOL AID…AND SUBWAY IS DOPE AS FUCK!
It’s rather impressive how nicon went from a mere dubstep event to a more
general bass oriented event with drum n bass and dubstep being equal and with
national coverage. This party…maybe even one of the sickest lineups i’ve ever vj-ed.
Even by my standards….and i haven’t even mentioned Tom Hamels artwork
being even more impressive then it is normally is!

J:Kenzo, The Others, Rusko, Phace&Misanthrop, and Funtcase b2b cookie monsta

For their 5 year anniversary Toffler decided to do a bigger indoor event at the awesome
onderzeeboot loods venue in Rotterdam, a great industrial location for techno parties this size.
Two rooms again and both with visuals. Toffler trusts us to do what we do best…create awesome visuals
and we tried to extend the treatment for custom visuals for toffler as we have over the past two events.
Its turning out to be something really cool and we are very proud of our toffler content.
On stage legends like: Gary Beck, Luke Slater, HAEKEN, Adam Beyer and Joris Voorn!

It is nice touring with an act and vjing with custom content that you made yourself.
I really wouldn’t mind doing that more.

Kbk asked me to host this massive stage led setting. Double HD video mapping
with a lot of LED in the ceiling. I’m not very used to the latin and carribean styles
of music but it’s always a lot of fun to play these kinds of shows.
Instead of actively VJing it is more a focussing on creating a right atmosphere for
the performing artist or the mood of the moment. It was a difficult show,
but im actually pretty proud of the result.

After the awakenings / latin village stints on the sunday i skipped Latin Village Festival for a
year. Now they have hooked up with UDC they are back at the Dance Valley arena combining
the arenas into Dutch Valley, Dance Valley and Latin Village.
Lennart visuals was asked to host all stages except for the mainstage and we were there to
help him by hosting the Afro Beats stage. Actually it was…..nice.
Afro house is so strange to me…but this polyritmic stuff, 4×4 percussion combinations and
weird deep sounds….pretty strange to vj to but kind of fun. See you all next year!

simple mapping wise….the wishes for the different artists and the
special stage design make this a really nice show for us to do every year.
So thanks you Ivo for asking us back again :-)

Talking of special artists…my favorites this year: Jack Parow, TYPHOON,
Falco Benz, Kraak en Smaak en Jett Rebel. Its a bit out of my dance
oriented comfort zone but actually its cool to out on limbo once in a while.

post Shows for Triomf

July 21st, 2015

Filed under: VJ, commercial — dirty @ 10:00 pm

Today we do an afterparty for the Nijmeegse Vierdaagse…the world famous 4day walking event.
Triomf is hosting a 90’s now and a 80’s verantwoord at the legendary Doornroosje venue..the
new building…i was waiting to play here for a long long time and it makes me kind of nostalgic.
Doing big stage shows usually means you only play at festivals and bigger venues like the HMH,
Ziggodome, Ahoy, Brabanthallen or MECC…This leaves a lot of great venues in Holland that you
don’t get to play. Since i started doing events for Triomf i did really a lot of shows for them,
usually in between my regular shows and the big upside is that it made it possible for me to play
a lot of legendary dutch pop and rock venues i really wanted to hit at least once in my career.
Just a name a few: Mezz Breda, Melkweg Amsterdam, Burgerweeshuis Deventer, Tivoli Utrecht,
Patronaat Haarlem, Doornroosje Nijmegen but also clubs and smaller venues in the land like:
Luxorlive in Arnhem, Timmerfabriek Vlissingen, P60 Purmerend, Duycker Hoofddorp, De Vorstin
Hilversum, De Helling Utrecht, De Nobel Leiden and many more.

Awakenings festival in Amsterdam. This year the X stage was a bit more difficult, rocking it solo
and mixing 12mm and 3,9mm LED systems. The second year of this festival being a two day event
definitely gives it a regular spot in my festival season…really happy i could be here again.
On stage best bits were Nina Kraviz, Dave Clarke, Boddika, Len Faki and legend Jeff Mills.

but days like these hahaha dang…We started off housy, through Tom Trago’s set and ended up
full blown techno with Oliver Weiter…ahhh yeah. The 16mm fully roof banner LED setup was a gift!
Check this out…i remember rocking these kinds of stages with crews of guys and huge server
