Erik Heijting (NL)
If we talk about Erik Heijting, we can truly speak of a solid and technical DJ. He has been in the game for over 10 years and he earned his stripes throughout these years. Erik got his first mixer at the age of 14. He connected a Discman and a CD player to it and without even having a pitch, he was mixing for hours and hours. One year later, he bought 2 turntables and started spending all his money on records. He even got an extra newspaper round on top of his other one to be able to buy even more records! Later on, at the age of 17, he bought 2 Technics and it was on these decks, where he really became a skillful DJ. Erik is a crowd favorite, not only because of his music, but also because of all his efforts to improve the scene. He has been hosting and organizing underground events and raves for a while now and in the mean time, Erik had several residencies (i.e. Chemistry, Fresh FM, the infamous Club Poema and more). He played all major clubs in The Netherlands and full-scale festivals like Soenda Festival, Gaasper Pleasure and ROCKIT Open Air. Besides that, he also played in Berlin, Copenhagen and London. He gets his inspiration from music all over the world and he is not limited by any genres. It doesn’t matter if it’s hiphop, dub, reggae, house or techno. These are his influences and they characterise his sets: always a warm sound with raw bass lines.
