De Man Zonder Schaduw (NL)
The Man With No Shadow – shady name for a respectable dj. Gaining notoriety as co-founder and resident of the infamous GZG raves, he is now one of Holland’s most wanted technojocks. Representing the underground with a stern smile towards the mainstream, he’s winning over crowds across the Netherlands and beyond. A matter of timing or just a captivating choice of records? Who’s to say. Somehow The Man never fails to supply magical moments. The philosophy behind the GZG parties isn’t genre-based, but aimed foremost at capturing the ‘New House Feeling’. A whole new generation of underground clubbers has been inspired by these raves in old warehouses, on boats and in deserted factories. While crowds grew steadily over the last six years, so did the fanbase of promoter and dj The Man With No Shadow. As his organization was defying the authority’s regulations, he was breaking the rules of clubland from behind the decks. The Man has nourished an extraordinary blend of silk-mixed techno: patiently luring you into his aggressive grooves, he always finds the perfect moment to make the dancefloor explode with a surprising record.
