CAMIEL DAMEN

Camiel is a DJ, Producer, live performer, and music teacher. His music is versatile and hard to pigeonhole as he creates house grooves just as easily as techno cuts or dub soundscapes.

Camiel has released music on Viva Music, Tzinah, Deep Tech, Cervidae Recordings, Soulman Music, Eklektisch, and many more. He’s played in clubs like Studio 80, Paradigm, Air, Kater Blau, and Wilde Renate and his live sets have traveled through Europe, including Germany, England, Poland, Macedonia, Turkey, Malta, and Ibiza. He is also one of the founding fathers of Dancefair, an event in Holland for aspiring producers and DJs with 5000 yearly visitors. He helped to set up the event in the first year and offers masterclasses there every year.

Camiel is an in-demand speaker for events and organizations like Ableton, Dancefair, ADE, and the SAE Institute in Amsterdam.

NIELS VOORBACH

Niels is a music curator at Deep House Amsterdam and a DJ/Producer. With a background in event organization, he has over 20 years of experience in the Amsterdam music scene. At the age of 17, he started his music adventure working for 'Chemistry', one of the most notorious and long-playing club nights in Amsterdam. After a break of 6 years working in Finance & Pharma, visiting Club Trouw on a regular basis completely drew Niels back in. This was the start of a new chapter, where he developed his love for refined electronic music. This also sparked his interest in DJ’ing and producing.

His most recent endeavors include 'The Ark Cruise', a multi-day destination festival on a cruise ship traveling to Barcelona, Ibiza, and Mallorca, which he organized and co-founded together with Lex. Both are also responsible for the summer event series 'De Zomerkantine' together with the team behind leading club “De Marktkantine”. Currently, they co-manage Colyn.
