GET TO KNOW ODIN!

Why did you become a dj?

I rolled into this really! Did my first mix on vinyl for a buddy who did a DJ workshop. I was into music, but not like that. He introduced me and I was hooked ever since! Music is magical to me, I can’t explain it. It has always been like that. Since I started DJ’ing, my passion for music found a place to grow and it feels like home!

Who was your childhood idol?

In general; Martin Lawrence the actor! Music wise; J Dilla!

Describe your ideal partner in 3 words

Sweet, humble and mixed.

What do you listen to on the way home after a turnt up night?

This always depends on the mood but usually something jazzy / easy listening! From Yussef Kamaal to Frank Sinatra and back!

Trippiest track on your USB now?

Do you mean like crazy? If so – Great Dane – Deezy Bounce for sure. If u mean A rotation wise Imma go for The Light by Jeremih and Ty Dolla $ign, but this is always changing!

First music you ever bought

Big Brovas – Nu Flow on single CD! First ever record was Quasimoto – Microphone Mathmatics from the legendary Stones Throw label!

Quantity over quality! I would rather listen to one good album of my favourite artist once a year instead of 4 mixtapes that last like a month or 2/3.

Special memory of something that happened at Encore

My first ever show in The Melkweg for Encore is something I never forget! All the festivals have been amazing each year so those count too!

Worst musical trend of 2018?

Quantity over quality! I would rather listen to one good album of my favourite artist once a year instead of 4 mixtapes that last like a month or 2/3.

How do you prepare for a set?

I usually just listen to music throughout the week, and then save what I want to play at the weekends! Songs that move me, make me want to dance all count! All genres!

If you could live in another decade, which one would that be?

Definitely the 80’s! Im a big fan of funk and disco!

What song should every dj delete from their crates?

Any unoriginal moombahton edit made from a pop track!

Longest set you’ve ever dj’ed

Pfffoe, good question. I think that is about 6/7 hours? I want to do a 24 hour set once in my life!

I think nowadays, a lot more is accepted. Its all about the way you wear it! If u rock your fit with confidence, everything can be cool!

Worst fashion trend your seeing in the clubs right now?

I dont really pay attention to that. I think nowadays, a lot more is accepted. Its all about the way you wear it! If u rock your fit with confidence, everything can be cool!

Something you’ve never done but want to do before you die?

Release an album! I’m into producing so this is definetly on my bucket list! Next to this, see more of the world. Travel in combination with music!

Favorite party destination?

I would go for Amsterdam, Rotterdam and my hometown Nijmegen. My first ever tour was to Tokyo and Bali so those are on the list too!

Craziest thing you've ever seen in a club?

Some amateur Major Lazer – Pon Di Floor type daggering moves haha!

If you was not a dj what would your job be?

Honestly don’t know! I was into sports when I was young and did a education for becoming a Gym teacher. But I dropped that because it didn’t make me happy in the long run! But probably something like that!
