Theatre on the dancefloor..

In his flawless driven adventurous sets one can expect any influence from twisted house beats, electro to pop and trance. But Emjay is more than good music alone. His energetic personality and his unconditional passion for fresh dance music has led his DJing into that of a true artist. Emjay finds himself nowadays playing clubs and festivals worldwide, debating with Dutch ministers about hypocrisy, writing newspaper articles against club closure, setting up an artist collective, A. & R.ing a studio and giving DJ workshops for kids. How does someone who once rented a small apartment in the Red Light district accomplish this ? The driving force behind Emjays unlimited positive energy, passion and creative initiatives lies in the past..

Emjay, moved to Amsterdam around 1990 , age 18 and witnessed the rise of electronic dance music. “I was fascinated by this so called vogue music that made me dance week after week. It was music, it was an avant-garde show. I employed myself in different jobs to stay close to the music. I worked as a bartender at a gay bar, at Outland recordshop and, believe it or not, as the doorman at the first illegal after parties just to spin some records at the end of the party.” After sending out mix cds Emjay got support from his favourite DJs and in 1995 a three year Friday and Saturday residency at the famous jet set club Sinners in Heaven started. Back then Emjay played 3 days a week house music all night long and learned to build up a night.. Soon Emjay played every club, festival and (after) party in Holland and abroad. .
“Because I am quite fanatic in what I do, I attracted more fanatic people that were in for the music and not for the bullshit.. Most of them are still my friends today.”
With jet set king Kommander K., and MTV music director and friend DJ Kross , Emjay started a pioneering clubconcept in 1999 called Kremlin. Amsterdam was ready for a club with global ambition, so we found a large venue and did it.. At some point we could invite all our global heroes to join at the turntables... Timo Maas, Lawler, Digweed, Sister Bliss, Oakenfold, Cattaneo. They all enjoyed playing at Kremlin where lines were huge at 10.00 pm. Dutch DJs like Tiesto,and Remy were frequent guest DJs. In 2002 Kremlin won the award best clubnight of Holland, and in the same year resident Emjay quit. “Oakenfold supported my first record Transatlantik by releasing it on his label Perfecto.Then he asked me to compile the Underground Sounds of Holland EP and invited me over to play in Ibiza, Miami and Amsterdam. From that moment on, I really wanted to focus on the studio side and explore new ways of performing. Emjay started working as A & R manager of one of Amsterdam’s best studio’s Cavern Studios and in 2004 this led to the start of Storm, a company where music and entertainment blends together in innovating nightlife concepts.”

“STORM manages my DJ activities and takes my music and performing one step further by producing a hurricane of action theatre, visuals and even acrobatics around it. Currently we are working on a music/theatre show de la Guarda style. A specialty of my partner who has years of experience in this. And very important for me , we are setting up our own record label. We believe in do-it-yourself.”

Emjay’s new killertrack "10 years ahead" has been chosen to be TMFs (Hollands #1 music tv station) 10 year anniversary theme. “In 1999 I started hanging out in studios with several friends, like Jaimy for example, and now I have a group of serious producers working with me I am very open minded towards new music.“

So what can we expect in 2005 ? Well here is the answer : A period of hard work, discipline and focus made Emjay better then ever, and this time his pumping flawless sets may include a spectacular show built around his own music. Emjay rocks. Let the Storm begin !!
