Joop Junior Biography

Joop Junior's career is still young, but he has already made a flying start. His passion for dance music began at an early age and he has been DJing and producing bassline-orientated and infectious

Joop Junior's career is still young, but he has already made a flying start. His passion for dance music began at an early age and he has been DJing and producing bassline-orientated and infectious techno ever since. Joop Junior's remarkable talent has not gone unnoticed and his tracks have been released by none other than technopioneer Richie Hawtin on his renowned record label M-nus. Besides producing, this free spirit from The Hague has been setting up his own label and organising events. With these milestones already behind him, we can't wait to see what Joop Junior still has in store for us in the future.

Growing up in The Hague, it didn't take long before Joop got the chance to show off his DJing skills. After familiarizing himself with house music, his love for techno began to grow. He managed to develop his already-mature sound quickly because he learned the tricks of the trade from an experienced producer. His own productions with their distinctive rolling grooves, hypnotizing percussion, ringing synths and tight beats soon garnered attention. Fellow The Hague boys and well-known tech-house acts Remy and Patch Park recognised Joop's talent and released his EP on their label Fone Audio. The EP was well received by world-famous DJs such as Adam Beyer, Joseph Capriati, Karotte and Marco Bailey. From that moment on, his career rapidly gained momentum. 

It wasn't long before Richie Hawtin caught on to Joop's music too -literally. When Hawtin was playing at a festival, Joop threw a USB stick with some of his tracks at the superstar DJ. A release on the album New Horizons, a M-nus complitation distributed by renowned magazine Mixmag, followed not long after. It shouldn't come as a surprise that Joop's raw and dark but always danceable tracks are now regularly played by established names, including Adam Beyer, John Digweed and Umek. Playing Joop's records is like shooting fish in a barrel: his tracks never miss and are guaranteed to cause mayhem on the dance floor. 

Setting up his own label Access and organising Access label nights have allowed a wider audience to get to know Joop's passion for and commitment to music. Visiting one of his events is guaranteed to stimulate all your senses: quality music for the ears, an overwhelming LED show for the eyes and pumping basslines for the body. That being said, Joop is nowhere near done with the world, or the world with him.
