Frederik Abas (NL)
Frederik Abas was raised in Haarlem in the Netherlands. His big passion for music began back in 1991. He was 16 and worked for a drive-in show company as a light and sound technician. In 1993, Frederik started playing music at student, wedding and college parties. Early inspirations to get into dance music were Dutch house founders DJ Marcello and DJ Dimitri Kneppers. Back then the Roxy was in full flow and this inspired Frederik to play club house and tech house music – his future was set before him at this early age. Frederik’s style is energetic and danceable, appealing to the large groups of people he plays to every weekened without losing his underground identity. Frederik’s first serious booking was at the Beverwijk Bazaar in 1994 for the Loveland organization. Loveland has become well-known and highly successful in the Netherlands. Frederik has played at Loveland Festival for 8 years.
