TIP015 DJ R’Deem

I have been interested in music for as long as I can remember. Growing up listening to artist like The Doors, Pink Floyd, Metallica, Iron Maiden, Paradise Lost. I slowly developed my taste in music and came in contact with electronic dance music around the age of 16. Attending big techno parties and seeing DJ behind the decks and the energy they send out I knew this was something I wanted to do, and from then on it became a big part of my life.

My journey started out as a techno DJ; during that time I mastered the skills that were needed to be a DJ. Everything was still vinyl at that time and I remember my first decks to be the kind that drives the spinning plate with an elastic band. After three years of playing raw pounding techno at established parties and playing beside artists like DJ Rush, Claude Young and Marco Bailey my taste in music was changing and I went looking for new horizons. I found the answers I was looking for in the more psychedelic and progressive scene to which I was introduced at the end of 2001.

Nowadays having played at festivals like Vuuv (ger), Indian Spirit (ger), Tshitraka (ger), The Experience (Thailand), Blackmoon (Thailand), Tomorrowland (Bel), my DJ -bag is stashed with a wide selection of music, ranging in styles going from tech/deep house, minimal, progressive house to psychedelic progressive. The art to me is playing the right track at the right time and keeping everything interesting by adding effects and loops to the tracks you’re playing.

I play with the laptop now, and I do this because for me, that way, the possibilities for creativity are endless and having done also some production work my sets are now a kind of semi live, what I mean by that is that I don’t play my own music (except for a couple a tracks here and there) but I do try to make tracks different on the fly by playing them loop based, cutting out parts and adding extra samples and effects, which gives me a lot of freedom for creativity right there and then on the spot.
