Imagine, in a far past in a small town in Groningen, Holland. The first dance-tracks are heard on the radio and house music rises. Somewhere a young DJ-to-be is hooked on the radio, a tape recorder in reach, waiting for that one special track. He spells the charts, never misses a show and because of that, he makes a rock solid base for a musical career.
Soon just recording tracks from the radio wasn't enough. After a couple of attempts the first dance-compilations started to develop. In the local town-club he could let it all out and for a enthusiastic crowd he plays and mixes the music. A couple of turntables, a mixing desk and loads of records were purchased. A simple hobby was growing into a semi-professional concept. The only thing what was missing was a real DJ name. And because mixing is all about synchronicity, the name 'DJ Synchro' was quickly found.
One gig after another finally gave him residencies in a club in Nijmegen and Groningen. His tight way of mixing, feeling the audience and choosing his music carefully was noticed by the crowd and as a result, a small group of fans was born.
Eventually the (logical) step to a professional institution became a fact. In October of 2001 the National radio station 'Yorin FM' invited him, together with a fellow DJ, to mix the 'Yorin FM Hitmix'. A 4 hour show with the best dance tracks and house classics. This show soon developed to be the show with the most listeners of the whole radio station. One year later, DJ Synchro started to mix for the National Radiostation 'SLAM!FM' He started to mix a weekly one hour show and a short minimix with the best dance tracks of that moment in a tight uplifting mix. Soon these also became the most popular items of the station! During this period he also produced a Mega mix for Dutch House hero DJ Jean. This Mega mix appeared on the DJ Jean website for more than a year!
After a total of 4 years DJ Synchro stops making mixes for radio stations. Instead he starts focusing more and more on producing music and performing as a DJ at parties and clubs. A DJ Synchro live set will consist of pumping accessible uplifting house music which will make the crowd go wild!
As a producer he also teams up with different big boys in the scene. In January 2007, the first release is a fact. The German house label 'Lickin Records' signed a track he produced with DJ JVA, called 'Time out'. A classic house tune with piano and vocals. Soon after Dutch House pioneer DJ Jose asked the two guys to make a 2007 remix of his track 'Hesitate'. This remix did very well in the clubs. After that they produced the next big release on Lickin Records called ‘Dancin’. This track was released exclusively on Beatport as a digital download and was remixed by ‘The Remaniax’. Also a remix for a Dutch upcoming project called 'Brandon Still' was released early 2009 on MFL Recordings.
2010 started off great by producing a house track which was signed by the label B2Control / Groovemasters. This EP was released in the summer of 2010 and got major positive feedback! Soon after several remix assignments followed.
At this moment, DJ Synchro is building his own recording -and production studio where he not only produces and remixes tracks, but also will be able to record high quality vocals and instruments.
New remixes and solo releases are already scheduled for this year together with a few ghost productions as well. Keep an eye on the website and socials like Twitter and Instagram to stay updated!
