Let’s start off the week with a deep creation by Tim Hoeben. Tim has become a household name in the Amsterdam clubbing circuit over the past years. Having played many gigs, at nearly all the relevant venues, he has crafted a unique sound that is a more than welcome addition to the Amsterdam DJ guild.
From deep to tech, from Chicago to Detroit, Tim’s dj-sets are all about house music. Combining the classic with the new, always looking for the thick bassline and groovy percussions. With his own sound, and a stage performance worth mentioning, Tim won himself both the Jury and the Audience prize at the 2009/2010 TWSTd DJ Contest, Holland’s most renowned and biggest DJ competition. Bagging this victory, Tim’s career was on the up, with bookings at big clubs like Trouw, Studio 80, Paradiso, De Melkweg, AIR, Odeon and many others. One of the highlights in his career so far was his closing set at Welcome to the Future 2011, quite an achievement for somebody who had only been handling the decks for a couple of years.
Currently Studio 80 is Tim’s homebase as a DJ with ‘Your WKND Starts Here’, for which he has claimed a residency. On Thursdays once every month he plays the second area in the club, and invites other local DJ’s to come play with him on this immensely popular night in the city, attracting a wide array of music lovers. Trouw is another one of his favourite locations, with regular gigs there as well. With his name now solidly manifested in his hometown, the future looks nothing but bright bright for him.
So press play, and get down on this lush mixtape he’s prepared for us, which is as appropriate to listen to at home, in the office or at any pre- or afterparty. And make sure to check out Tim Hoeben during the next WKND, on December 19th, where he will be playing along with Dutch house legend Steve Rachmad.
