Amsterdam based J.A.N. got inspired by local DJs in the Amsterdam nightlife at early age. Soon he started DJing at the classic spot De Duivel, where he learned the art of DJing in front of a crowd.
While performing, he hooked up with fellow 'Amsterdammer' and DJ/producer Kid Sublime, who showed him the ropes of rocking a sampler. J.A.N. quickly caught the virus and invested in his own digital equipment, started digging for samples, and thereby widening his musical spectrum.
When Kid introduced J.A.N. to house music, he quickly felt drawn to the warm, deep sounds of the Detroit house scene. He describes his fusion style as B-Boy House, and incorporated this right back into his DJ sets. In one set he might start off with down tempo hip hop, like a Pete Rock or Slum Village record, and end up taking you right to the raw burbs of Detroit playing such artists as Theo Parrish or Moodymann.
Yall ready for some Amsterdam B-Boy house? Then get ready for J.A.N.s brand new debut 'The Weather EP' on Dopeness Galore.
'For the fans of that Amsterdam/Detroit sound, think the early works of Aardvarck/Rick Wade and you wont be disappointed!!' Kid Sublime: 'Yess! I am very proud my main man J.A.N is finally dropping his 1st ever 12'...nice basement B-Boy House music...deep and soulful..a very promissing future lies ahead for this youngbuck!'
