Boris Werner (NL)

Known as an enfant terrible and serving as a radiant light of every after hour, but most of all he is notoriously known for his merciless productions. Yes, we are talking about the thrill seeker of his generation: Boris Werner. The Amsterdam based bad boy is not afraid to speak his mind and lets his fearlessness reflect in his music productions. Living weekend to weekend while having all kinds of musical escapades in between, this rock star’s music got widely recognized in the international music scene we call house. Over the last years he has created quite a stir for himself and he is well on his way to continue his rollercoaster of a ride. The first ten years of being a house music wild child skyrocketed Boris into playing most venues throughout Holland and abroad. Places and events like 11 (†), Studio 80 (including legendary 10 and 11 hours sets), Rex, Voltt, 5 days Off, Tenax, Panoramabar, T/bar, Awakenings, Welcome To The Future, Sonne Mond und Sterne, WMC, Trouw, Sonar, ADE and closing the Lowlands Festival are on his long and ever evolving list of memorable gigs. Another mile stone came when the Circoloco crew picked up Boris, boosting him into the DJ-booth of Ibiza’s DC-10 for over three years in a row. And if that wasn’t enough, Mr. Werner is a proud host of his very own club night; Late Night Society at the magnificent club Trouw in Amsterdam. Alongside long-time friend William Kouam Djoko he has invited artists such as Seth Troxler, dOP, Ion Ludwig, Wareika, Tom Trago, Jamie Jones, Visionquest and San Proper. Together with their guests the LNS-boys make the ‘dress up chic, act like trash’ motto of the residency at the praised club so legendary. Where Boris turned his love for music into a hefty lifestyle in the first decade of his career, he now takes it up a notch. Behind the decks of different clubs all around the world, being in charge of the music at an after hour, but mostly spending night after night in his studio during the week, there isn’t a moment when he’s not working. And it paid off: while the hammer track ‘Set it off’ released on Soweso was destroying a couple of dance floors around the globe, another EP ‘Slow Dancin’ came out on Get Physical in the fall of 2012. Boris Werner: a charismatic leading figure of the house music scene, who is forever young at heart. He has promised himself he will continue to keep pushing dance floors and promoters worldwide. It isn’t easy not to fall under his spell when he plays his sound that is filled with lush grooves, thick baselines and subtle melodies, brought with his incredible enthusiasm and dedication to party. Now he has found his new direction in music, there seems to be no way of stopping Boris Werner doing what he does best…
