EL-P started dj'ing around 1997. Influenced by some techno artists, styles and venues, he ended up being one of the early adaptors of the minimal sound. In 2003 he was the co-founder of the collective Minimal Eindhoven, that's presenting his sound throughout the whole country and abroad. Next, he successfully organizes his own gigs, inviting many artists from all over the world. As a rising dj, he was asked to play at several Voltt editions in Amsterdam (Stubnitz & Paradiso) and carefully crossed borders by playing at the well known Club der Vissionaire & Arena Club in Berlin.
At daytime Piet works at Rare Records in Eindhoven. This job provides him in his primary needs: Staying on top of all new releases. EL-P has a residency in clubs like de Rechter and Effenaar. This summer he'll be playing monthly at the Phonocult/Steam parties at beach venue Woosah in Scheveningen, giving it a hot awareness even when the rain comes down!!
