Decoded Radio present Rejected Label showcase with Edwin Oosterwal

Decoded Radio continues our label feature series with one of the Netherlands most seminal house and techno labels. Rejected was founded in 2006 by Joris Voorn and Edwin Oosterwal. Together with the launch of their producers outfit Rejected they decided to start their own imprint. With the very first release, Rejected set a standard for high quality dance floor fodder. It was only uphill from there, releasing one club hit after another and signing some of the most cutting edge names in contemporary house and techno.

In the mid 90’s Joris and Edwin were living in Enschede, close to the German border. Joris was studying architecture and Edwin was studying engineering. Local venue Atak was hosting a DJ contest for their weekly dance night Basic Grooves and both Joris and Edwin came in first place. The winner of the contest would become a resident so that’s how their friendship and partnership began.

Every Thursday night they would play dance in the broadest sense, not only house and techno but also disco, drum & bass and even some trip-hop. “It was a fun time and great being able to play such a diverse sound” says Edwin. Basic Groove is still around and is actually one of the longest running club nights in Holland.

Following an interview with Edwin in August last year Decoded naturally approached Rejected to showcase their sound of deeper house and techno. Decoded Magazine Radio proudly presents Edwin Oosterwal – Rejected label showcase.
