We first caught Wouter in his home environment in Utrecht Holland. He impressed us with his unique blend of UK garage and heavy hitting house style, which the crowd went nuts for. A few years latter and great releases on the likes of DJ Haus’ Hot Haus Records and here we are with a mix finally from the man. We caught up with him to check what how he has been spending his time and a little bit about the mix…
“Recently I’ve been very busy with some of my own events and a lot of gigs. The mix was recorded in a new club in Utrecht called “BASIS”. The club is quite new and I’ve got to give Jorn, Joost and Chris a shout-out for letting me use their equipment while they were waiting after business hours for me to finish it. When I met the Bicep boys I was doing a 3-hour warm up at the Club Poema in Utrecht before they were going to start. I played a lot of powerful house joints and as far as I remember (it was a rough night ;) ) they really loved it. For this mix I decided not to go full on power but build it up a little. I start with a few UK Garage kind of vibe, which eventually builds up to my more actual kind of sound. I’m satisfied with the mix, didn’t overuse effects as I usually do which made it an extra challenge.
Up next I’ve got a pretty busy summer ahead of me containing a lot of nice festivals and club shows which I could’ve never dreamt of when I started playing a few years ago. Since I was a very busy promoter I decided to drop a few of my concepts so I can focus myself more on studio time. For now I can’t tell a lot regarding releases. But it’s going to be busy in the next few months !”
