Awakenings Festival 2019
Born in The Hague, the Netherlands, Remy was bitten by the music bug in the summer of 1990. A dark murky club, lustrous lights, that thumping base, and a strange but curiously intoxicating fusion of high, medium, and low frequencies was all it took for Remy to make a sudden change of career, and a decision he has never regretted making since. He bought his own DJ set after that summer. Eventually he gained residency at all Silly Symphonies events in Holland. The Amsterdam based club RoXY soon recognized his talent and introduced Remy to a larger crowd every Saturday night. Remy has since been found at John Digweed's Bedrock nights in London as well as those famous Twilo nights in New York aside from playing all over the world. He never ceases to amaze his fans and crowds with his impeccable choice of records and flawless, tight mixing. Receiving an award from the Dutch Awards as Best DJ consecutively for 2001 and 2002, proves exactly that. "I like to play a variety of sounds from tech-house, to techno, To English progressive, to trance. For me, the most important aspect in a record as well as a DJ set is the flow of energy in the music. The real challenge is to play for a certain type of crowd, be it techno or progressive and have them enjoying another sound without realizing that style of music has changed." Since the summer of 90', Remy's passion for music has only intensified. Since then, he has launched a slew of record labels such as WONKA, 'Global Cuts' together with Belgian DJ/producer Sven van Hees, AREA CODE 070 (the phone area code of Remy's residence The Hague), and of course TASTE RECORDINGS. Similarly, he has released a number of singles that have received international recognition. To name a couple, 'Mess With Da Bull' was featured on Sasha & Digweed's 'Northern Exposure Expeditions' compilation, and 'Backstabber' (DJ Remy) can be found on the Renaissance-CD by Dave Seaman. Recent releases of Remy include 'Pumped Up' (DJ Remy) and 'Spotlight' (RR Workshop). He is currently working on the release of his first artist album.
