I.M.X’ DJ career is tied to the breakthrough of house music in his native country, The Netherlands. He started playing hip-hop, breaks and
general charts music at the age of 12, setting up his own mobile disco, Delicious Beats, not being allowed to play in bars yet due to age
The late 80’s and early 90’s saw the advent of house music in Europe in what is now recognized and labelled the (second) Summer of Love. He
instantly became a passionate follower and early adapter of the bespoke Dutch House sound, making waves in the Rotterdam and
Amsterdam house scenes. Through residencies in clubs like White Stone, Zazou and Club <<O>> in the Netherlands, he grew a following that
brought him in the middle of this new house music movement and soon gigs followed across the Netherlands as well as in Germany, Belgium,
Spain, Greece and Italy. Musically, his style covered a lot of the areas of a developing house scene over the years as well: from what is now
classic house, to hardstyle (gabber in Dutch) and trance and at a later stage to progressive house, tech house and techno.
Through his professional career as a Business Consultant and Entrepreneur, he lived in many countries and managed to play and get
residencies in most of them. Cities include Barcelona, Prague, New York, Houston, Sao Paolo, Moscow, Dubai, Kuala Lumpur, Bangkok and
Singapore. The latter currently serves as his base, where he also runs a Market Research company and doubles as the head honcho of record
label Manifest Productions.
