At the age of 15 Milan was introduced to genres in music called House and Techno. Intrigued by these innovative sounds from Chicago and Detroit, he became aware of a profound passion for electronic dance music. Ten years later, Milan’s entire life revolves around DJ’ing and event organisation.
In 2006 Milan enrolled to study at the Academy for Popular Culture, preparing himself for a professional music career and creating the foundation for an interesting future. Shortly after, he founded the event organization “Eye Nexus” and provided the city of Groningen with an innovative event platform for creative students, graduates and artists from the northern provences of the Netherlands.
During the following years, Eye Nexus launched the “Our World” event (a social fundsraiser held aboard a renovated cargo vessel), and the “BeatsBall Festival” at the Groningen City Beach. With two succesful event concepts, Milan’s profile grew and a monthly residency at Groningen’s house temple Pand48 was established. There he met like-minded organisers and DJ’s which led to the co-production of the club event called “Boel op Stelten”, and a monthly residency.
Early 2011, Milan launched the Origins event project, intending to create a true rave in a converted warehouse. With a thousand people raising their hands, this event proved to be the kick-start for his career, shortly followed by an internship at the infamous Studio 80 in Amsterdam. There he was given the opportunity to organise and become the resident DJ of the new wednesday club concept called Black Box, focussing on the new international house sound. Studio 80, with it’s colourful and creative visitors, was the ideal venue to present this new music direction.
As the years passed, his sound became more refined and grew into a blend of deephouse and subb-driven grooves. He gained experience playing at a wide variety of venues, often praised for his warm opening sets, setting the mood. One might say that Milan is truly part of the new generation of artists living for the beauty of music and the purity of the dancefloor, always searching to improve the scene and stay innovative in both sound and organisation.
