Hansz Biography

Since the age of 12 he's been listening to every style of dance-music and at the age of 13 he started buying records. Living in a small place like Nijmegen, it was hard to start dj-ing. Finally in 1990 he got the chance to become a resident-dj in a open minded-club called "de Drang" (in English called "the Desire") in his hometown. At this place you could hear him playing a mixture of Funk/Disco/HipHop/House for 2 years on every Friday-night.

Unfortunatley the club closed in 1992 and from that moment on he played at various parties and clubs throughout the country. His style slowly evolves into a mixture of House & Techno and in 1994 he started dj-ing at the pré-Planet Rose nights at Doornroosje in Nijmegen. He became a resident dj with the official beginning of the Planet Rose in 1995. In the mean time he also started a fulltime study. After finishing his study in 4 years in 1997, he started working as an assistance engineer in several recordingstudio's. In the mean time he gradually started buying equipment and in the year 1999 he started making his own music. With his passion for American House (labels like Nervous, Nu Groove, Strictly Rhythm etc.) & Techno (430 West, UR, Axis etc.) he started making trax to complete his dj-set. Since 1999 there have been several records released, some of them became very succesfull with top dj's from around the world and have been played on radiostations like the BBC Radio 1, Dutch Radio 3 and KinkFM. In 2003 he also started to produce for other artists and in 2004 he became A&R manager for a new Dutch label called "Fingers Ltd. Records". In the year 2003 he was chosen at nr. 58 on the Dutch Best National DJ-Award list, which isn't a bad position 'cause after all very few 'Techno'-dj's were chosen in that list. A lot of top-dj's has played his productions. Supporting dj's are people like Carl Cox, Angel Molina, Paco Osuna, Umek, Pascal FEOS, Valentino Kanzyani, Misstress Barbara, Jeff Mills etc. etc. As a dj, Hansz played at a lot of venues in his own country and in countries like Spain, Germany and Belgium. As a resident dj of the legendary Planet Rose-nights at Doornroosje in Nijmegen he joyned almost every famous dj.
