Bas Amro (Enschede ‘91) is a new boy in the scene that is here to stay. Since his first releases in the beginning of 2008 – on the age of 16 – he kept surprising other dj’s and producers from all over the world with great variation in his productions while keeping one sound. After some small remixes and releases, he now showed the scene why he deserves a spot out there by doing remixes for great producers and labels. While the work for these remixes is really starting to pay off, more original mixes are coming out as we speak. At this moment Amro is working on tracks for some huge respected labels, while more and more producers ask him for remixes. This will all be announced soon, so stay tuned!
Bas Amro’s sound is hard to describe. His tracks are oldskool but modern, they’re deep but dancefloor-effective. He doesn’t limit himself to one style, though he’s no “trendhopper”. While producing house, deephouse, techhouse and even techno, all his productions have something in common that together makes one recognizable sound.
This wide sound got Amro some great gigs, like playing at Joris Voorn’s homebase Atak, Utrecht’s techno-venue Tivoli, the Escape Venue, BLM9, Studio 80, Odeon but also at some very big festivals.
Bas Amro started producing at the age of 12 and bought his first set of decks at his 14th, but inspite him being relatively young, you won’t hear this in his sets and productions. Amro is highly influenced by the roots of the Chicago and Detroit sound which brought him to getting lots of respect and support by the bigger names like Michel de Hey, Jimpster, Gorge, Lauhaus, Deetron, Samuel L Session, Laurent Garnier, Sebo K, Karotte, Thomas Schumacher, Martinez, Varoslav, Radio Slave, John Digweed, Milton Jackson, Osunlade, and the list keeps getting bigger!
Obviously, knowing that right now Bas Amro is only 19 years old, there’s a lot more to come, and with this rapidly growing list of support from artists and labels showing interest it’s all looking promising. As said before; this boy is here to stay!
