post MYSTERIOUS STADIUM PROJECT

June 6th, 2015

Filed under: VJ — dirty @ 10:00 pm

I figured i would play “the kuip” (the feyenoord stadium) eventually, i just wasn’t sure
when or how so when Marc McRowland asked me to VJ his enormous stadium project
i was pretty stoked. Legendary venue…enourmous LED wall and a pretty crazy lineup….
For the mainstage they had Sick Individuals, Mightyfools, Quintino, Jay Hardway,
Bassjackers and DYRO. I spent a lot of time making custom footage for the acts,
intro’s and the mapping but getting to vj from the center dot on the field it was worth it!

post OBSESSION OUTDOOR 2015

May 30th, 2015

Filed under: VJ — dirty @ 10:00 pm


And another year goes by…10 years in the making obsession goes on and on.
For this year we got asked to do two stages again, the hard stage and the mainstage. LSSLSS
running his regular spot i rounded up the main stage screen with a whopping 40×2 meter LED screen.
Total width being generously bigger then 4K…holy mother. I actually didn’t have any content for this
screen width or aspect ratio so we created a huge new set of visuals…mot of which based on the
original artworks by aemworks. Also Emiel from AEM helped on creating some additional visuals.
On decks main: Sander Kleinenberg, Dirtcaps, Quintino, Jay Hardway.
On decks hard: Noize Suppressor, Delete, Thera, Da Tweekaz.

Another year Funx holds their own music awards, the FMA’s. Like last year, again in the Melkweg
venue in Amsterdam and again on live TV, web, radio and before a live audience. Since the logo
and branding changed again i re did all the visuals we made the previous year plus added a whole
bunch of new visuals and backgrounds for every live artist and award specifically.
Next to the mainscreen there was also the 3 LEDbanner awards show stage for which i made all
the content this year also.

Filed under: VJ — dirty @ 10:00 pm

This is funny…for years i’ve been dying to get more techno bookings and here i am being asked to
do both visual stages at Toffler festival and the main at Soenda Festival…at the same damn
weekend…how does that happen?….In any case Sibe and i did Toffler Festival…two stages for
Amsterdam based artFX with a more or less dekmantel type of setup. We created really a lot of new
visuals for this setup, including a whole new set of black and white filmed visuals. Not to boast or
anything…But i’d say we made a really awesome double whammy there that day. On decks:
De sluwe vos, Secret Cinema, Michel de Hey, Dusky, Loco Dice and Eats Everything.

vland-2015.jpg

My guys over at #melroy invited me to host all 3 stages at Vland festival in walibi flevo
themepark this week. The artwork was great to work with and we spent really a lot of time
working with this (cinema4d) 3d artwork from veronica to create some great stuff!! Marcel
LSSLSS really helped a lot on this too. With Marcel rocking the house stage, Sibe (not-def) on
the PRESIDENT (eclectic) stage and myself on the mainstage…dang…thats a lot of visuals we
produced over a week’s time…seriously. Veronica has got this on lockdown.
Mainstage hightlights being Buraka som sistema, chef’s special, typhoon and yellow claw…
For the other stages: Ronnie Flex, shermanology, gregor salto, je broer and mr polska.

For kingsday i visualised this event here at the NDSM wharf. Not too busy…but good music though.
Kerri Chandler was amazing, just like Leroy Styles and Benny Rodrigues. For this event i made a
custom mapping with custom chaser visuals and a special themed visual package with gorillas and
airplanes and everything “KINGKONG“.

post WE LIKE THE 90′S

April 18th, 2015

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

For KBK visuals i did this 90’s retro show at the HMH in Amsterdam with live on stage the Vengaboys,
DJ JEAN and 2UNLIMITED…How 90’s can you get. The event being organised by SKY radio needed
some custom branding visuals, a audio sync show and some custom 90’s retro visuals. Blended together
with some old fashioned clip-sync and the show was a wrap.

post PAL MUNDO @ AHOY 2015

April 11th, 2015

Filed under: VJ, commercial — dirty @ 4:00 am

My friends over at KBK asked me to host the second hall of the legendary AHOY in Rotterdam for
them. Actually this was really far outside of my comfort zone and it was really interesting to see my
visuals working to Caribean and Latin types of music like Salsa, Bachata, raggaeton, Merengue, Zouk
etc. Actually the show of YAN COLLAZO was insanely good, i was seriously impressed and happy i
could background his show.

Third time in a row i was asked to host my favo spot at DGTL…the romney! This year the area was
sponsored by Desperados, and featured a very interesting line-up over this weekender.
DGTL IS AWESOME i tell you. They re-used my visuals for the LED at the front gate, which tells me
i did a good job last year :-) Favs in my area this year: Dusky, George Fitzgerald, Tom Trago, Happa,
Motor City Drum Ensemble and Scuba.

Filed under: VJ — dirty @ 11:00 pm

Sometimes stuff doesn’t need explaining…xl8 was so massive and so crazy. Together with sibe
i rocked this stage into submission. As you can see in the video, the visuals and stage were very
visible and we took a lot of time perfecting this mapping and making custom content for it.
Main on decks: Skism, trolley snatcha, blacksun empire and
drumsound and bassline smith really made my day!

March 28th, 2015

Filed under: VJ, commercial — dirty @ 10:22 pm

For the third time i was invited to do the visuals for the NPO radio6 zwarte lijst afterparty. Hotel
Arena
is a fitting place for this i guess and ledlease gave me a nice center screen with some extra
wing panels for mapping. Like last year the excitement is mosty in finding the balance between
jazz and soul fitting visuals and the NPO styled Radio 6 branding. Happy Corrino invited me to do
this job once again, always a treat to go outside your comfort zone.

For this indoor festival Takayama events together with PT invited me to visualise the mainstage in
the daytime. With some stage design, a pixelperfect mapping and some content to fit the mapping

Sometimes there are these dates…man….I was asked by #melroy and Meubelstukken to VJ at the
restyled edition of Speedfreax with Snakehips, DJ LUCK&NEAT, NEUTRINO & OXIDE and PEP&RASH.
All on a really shiny LEDwall, cutom mapping with custom content…new loops and everything.
Same night Sibe is rocking PRSPCT’s labelboss Gareth’s birthday bash at Worm for a 3 screen beamer
mapping…just as you think you got all the shows you need…Vincent from Takayama calls me to
boom out this Hexagon shaped ledwall over at Central Studios in Utrecht. Marcel LSSLSS went out
to this show called HardcoreAlliance with on decks: Miss k8, Ophidian, Re-style, Meccano Twins,
Ruffneck and Alien-t. 3 shows…1 night….crazy…

post KPN kick-off 2015

January 21st, 2015

Filed under: VJ, commercial — dirty @ 9:00 pm

Willem from TAAT events invited me to build some creative visuals for their annual two-day sales
event called kick-off. This year it was held at the America hal in Apeldoorn, home town of the
q-led crew. They built a special t-shaped 4k ledwall for us and I created all the “after-buiness”
visuals for this annual KPN main event. After the presentations there was the live shows from
Shirma Rouse, de jeugd van tegenwoordig en the Hed Kandi crew.
Mostly the challenge was the huge 4k screen format and the level of branding involved doing a
KPN production…also involving their sister brands, partners and event sponsors…xs4all, HBO,
Samsung, HI, Telfort, Spotify, HTC, LG and SONY they asked me to get wild with their
campagnes…and the KPN main theme for this year “voel je free” or Feel Free.

freaqshow-2014.jpg
Every year QDANCE hosts a major new year’s celebration in the ziggo dome in Amsterdam
called freaqshow. This year KBK asked LSSLSS and myself to create all the 9 timecode
show visuals and all the mapped deco content for them for this night. We created all these new
and unique visuals in little over 2 weeks…an immense feat. We created close to an hour of
absolute synched timecode visuals.

Below you can see the results, we are quite happy with them. Actully..the show was frigging
amazing…thanks Joris for kicking butt with our stuff…

My friend NICON…the final boss in dub heavy music asked to visualise this epic tentacled 7th
dub monster…Subway at the legendary maassilo venue is
always a pleasure to rock. For this setup Not-def and me made some
special content, a custom mapping and custom fitted content. A 9 piece
ledwall was quite a special treat…it was hard to fit Tom Hamel’s original
designs in this stage setting.

funx-ddd-2014.jpg
This year we used the Hotel Arena venue to present the dixte 1000 radioshow/hitlist afterparty.
With the new logo and branding changing to a more uniform NPO look we had to re do most of
our artwork and visuals…the new FUNX branding is pretty good. But branding on this level is always
a challenge. With live on stage the new full band concept of Gio and Keizer and the complex mapping
of Subway straight after this show the night was a bit of a challenge all together.

KBK asked me to babysit the second area for them at this seminal hardstyle banger. With Tristan
rocking the main…i was left with the low res LED in the second room. The developments are
going fast with LED these days so maybe it was even refreshing to rock some low res LED…maybe
even one of the last chances i get to do this haha.Hardstyle has come a long way….on decks:

Filed under: VJ — dirty @ 11:00 pm

For this winter indoor edition KBK asked me to operate the mainstage. The led provided by LEDLEASE
was in a pretty nice setup…to think we run these kind of setups every week nowadays…wow.
For this setup i made custom winter visuals, custom mapping, mapping content and special content
per artists…everybody likes to have their branding. I don’t really do trance shows anymore so with
Menno de Jong, Ram, Mark Sixma, Signum, Sean Tyas and legend Marcus Schulz on decks i guess i had
my full portion of trance late this year haha

Greatest bonus of this show was that i got to VJ with the custom loop pack visuals LSSLSS and me
created for Sied van Riel earlier this year.

Bardo asked me to create some creepy visuals for him here at this event. Over the last couple
of years the parade and party have turned into quite an event with this year over 15.000 people
joining the parade and the party being sold out days on beforehand. Westerunie is a pretty good
location for this and i was pretty amazed by all the costumes made by everyone. With Cat
Carpenters, tettero, Poeschpas and Cookachoo on decks…good night! I went all out with this
dia de la muerte theme…lots of fun!

Red bull studios invited me visualise their stage at Mysteryland this year. After the stage at DGTL

this show again i made a ot of extra visuals and custom mapped chasers. It was a bit of a challenge
but with some modifications the branding came out nice, i had a lot of fun seeing my custom visuals
shine here this day. On decks: Dimitri, 2000 and one, Tom Trago and Joris Voorn with Joran van Pol.

My friend and colleague Jesica Dreu from deframe asked me to help a little as video operator
on this show. This being a completely directed show about gabber/happy hardcore culture
in Holland it was quite a full and complex show. Several layers of video instarts, video clips,
manually synced songlyric subtitles, LED deco…dancers, lightshow…guest live acts…dj
change overs…the works. In the end some of the material wasn’t even used…it was quite
a full and packed one hour show. It was really great fun to see the ALPHA tent of Lowlands
go completely bonkers though…the audience went completely nuts. See for yourself:

In the end all they needed from me was some manual clip and lyric syncing…some signal
processing and mixing…fun to do none the less…a bit more to the technical side of the job.

I dont even remember how many years that makes? 5? 6?
KBK and ledlease invited me to rock the legendary xray with them yet again.
This year i used my own mapping and fully mapped content, and it worked like a mother…
Glad to see i can rock a stage at this level, technically and content wise.
It was a very difficult stage…with several led systems and depth overlays in tetris-like
shapes..quite awesome to play though. Xray is for sure the most awesome “club” on any festival.
Higlights for me this year: PROSUMER, INTERSTELLAR FUNK, PATTEN,

Second year that STV visuals asks me to host the mainstage for them at the legendary Solar
weekender in Roermond. Always a pleasure coming down south for this. Mostly it not being
vj-ing but more being a technical host…or a backdrop creator…i had a lot of fun making Solar
festival related visuals or visuals that related to the artist playing at that given time. This
festival being mostly electronic…the mainstage is where the music is diverse with band and
everything. Live on stage…bassnectar, great minds, araabmuzik, hudson mohawke and perquisite.
Aw yeah…see you next year Solar!

Re-using the custom 4 piece LED mapping from CRAFT the day before i could focus on making

Full on into the EDM as you can see…yes we are comfortable there as well :-)
