Menno de Jong, Intuition. For some, it's already a logical deduction. For those who haven't heard of him this might be the opportunity to catch up on your DJ literature about the future of trance.
These days successful new DJs have to be a master of many more disciplines than just mixing music. As owner of Intuition Recordings, devoted producer, globetrotting DJ, worldwide broadcasted radio show host and event promoter he shows that being a workaholic pays off in the dance music scene.
Whilst Intuition Recordings has grown to be one of the top trance labels, Menno's tracks have found their way into the playlists of nearly every mainroom, bedroom and underground trance DJ. In the meantime his Intuition Radio Show gains territory consistently and reaches tens of thousands of listeners weekly. In the end the real action takes place behind the decks though: With a non-stop smile, energetic dancing and continuous contact with the audience he shares his passion for magic melodies and dance floor rocking beats.
Only 22 years young yet Menno's list of international gigs is bigger than anyone elses at that age. He has played in more than 20 countries, for clubs and events such as Godskitchen and Gatecrasher in the UK, Sensation White in Poland, Tomorrowland in Belgium, the Love Parade in Berlin, Gaudi Arena in Moscow, Winter Music Conference in Miami, ESP in Johannesburg and many more, alongside some of the top names in the scene such as Tiesto, Armin van Buuren, Marco V and Markus Schulz.
His top notch DJing is complemented by some of the finest trance productions recently released. With tracks such as Tundra (on Intuition Recordings), Guanxi (Anjunabeats), Majestic and Second Thoughts (Dedicated) and remixes for Mark Otten – So Serene, The Thrillseekers, Karen Overton and many more he has developed into one of the top producers in the scene. His recent project 'Spirit' with Re:Locate and 'Magma' and 'Momentum' with Leon Bolier have even charted on national radiostations as well as the official Dutch single charts.
Menno's years of hard work have resulted in a DJ Mag Top 100 debut at nr. 72. With a number 14 notation in the worlds biggest trance site Trance Addict to top it off, Menno continues to be one of the ambassadors of the underground trance scene. All we can say is: Follow your Intuition, the music will do the rest!
