Luuk van Dijk
Amsterdam based house and techhouse dj/producer Luuk van Dijk (‘96) started producing electronic music in 2011. In 2013, he won the Kunstbende DJ-contest and that gave him a well deserved spot at Mysteryland 2014! He hosts his own clubnight PUUR in Hilversum. Besides that, Luuk performed in clubs like Studio 80, Basis and Factory 010 and at festivals like Straf_Werk, Amsterdam Open Air and A day at the Park. He played alongside Jamie Jones, Skream, Noir, Detroit Swindle, Nic Fanciulli, Shadow Child and even did a b2b set with Huxley during the after party of Straf_Werk Festival.
To top it all off, Luuk is very strong on a productional level as well... In 2014, his track ‘Je Moeder’ (Your mother), went viral in no time; over 170.000 plays on Soundcloud. After that, he was responsible for the anthem of Zandbak Festival- ‘Zandbak’ ft. Careless Motion. It was the starting point of where he is now.
His first release on Roush ‘Body E.P.’ in 2015, got amazing reviews and support from Paulo Martini, Sidney Charles, Horatio, Sossa and Joris Voorn. As Manchester based music platform XYST reports: “A cracking EP that hints at great promise, we can’t wait to hear more from Mr. Van Dijk over the next while.”
Although he’s very young, his own productions and dj-sets are filled with sounds that take you back to the old days but are contemporary at the same time. An old soul you might call it, Luuk van Dijk has only started to show the world what he stands for musically. Read more
