Maikel van Orsouw


BAM! Anything goes. Give and get.
Open-minded, but with a clear preference: underground.
Looking for the non-commercial sound within techno.
Mixing and producing a very own and recognizable sound.
Inspired by people like Dave Clark, Carl Cox and Deepdish and more recently by his surrounding sounds from Halfpercenters !

Born and raised in The Netherlands getting in touch with techno was inevitable. Illegal raves in the early 90ies, underground all the way, being absorbed and carried away by the innovative new sound and beats, exploring and experiencing techno to the fullest. The first time hearing Age of Love and Innercity felt like a kind of musical epiphany – and this where it all started.

When performing the crowd is key. I want them to enjoy to the fullest, to the max. Through mixing energetic techno, looking up the depth of this incredible music stream.
From intense Acid to Oldskool feelings. Always seeking for roughness combined with high energy. Tremendously fond in building up depth and sphere to trigger the audience with full-on techno.
Acid and splendid soundscapes are the red thread in my mixes combined with a never-ending love for a rolling bass. High driven techno the new skool way. Call it Dutch Dark & Dirty.
