NEW SIGNING: Bas Dobbelaer

We Are E is very proud to announce that we will be taking over the bookings for emerging Dutch talent Bas Dobbelaer.

We are excited to work with Bas because we believe he has a very bright future ahead of him, while already making the rounds and making his name known in the local Amsterdam scene with performances at important venues such as Paradiso, Sugarfactory, WesterUnie, Radion, and De Marktkantine. He has also mixed for podcasts and radio shows like STRAF_WERK, Deep House Amsterdam, and Red Light Radio. His music can be described as rhythmic and atmospheric house and techno with deep and varied percussion.

Listen to his Deep House Amsterdam mix here.

Bas grew up with electronic music with his father introducing him and his brother to techno by playing compilation CD’s from Michel de Hey, Sandrien and John Digweed at an early age. His father even took him to his first techno party as an underaged boy, ‘Earth’ at Paradiso, experiencing Nuno Dos Santos and Patrice Bäumel playing a live set as ‘360 Soundsystem’. This left a lasting impression with him, instantly infecting him with the electronic virus.

After a lot of practice as a bedroom DJ, Bas went out to start organizing and playing local parties. In 2013, Bas signed up for the prestigious TWSTd DJ Contest, which focusses on DJ’s in the Benelux region. Each round he got great experience playing for an audience with high expectations. Eventually he made it to the finals (out of 160 participants), where he finished in second place. From then on his name has grown and without a doubt will keep growing into the future.
