POA’s interest in electronic music dates back to the early 90’s when the legendary Rotterdam club Parkzicht and with it the upcoming Gabber scene were evolving. As he aged his love for (hardcore) rave music grew into a profound love for a more modern type of sound. However, the influence of those early rave tracks always plays an important role in his productions.
POA will soon see his new collab single with Bluntspeakers, called ‘Drummachine’ and his upcoming solo club banger ‘Love u more‘ released on Pastel Recordings. The label stands for an openminded approach towards house music. There’s loads of fresh releases lined up already so do keep an eye on the Pastel website or like the Pastel Facebook page to stay in the loop.
Next to this Pop On Acid easily morphs into an entrepreneur under his Dirk Schmidt disguise. Last year he saw his longtime dream come true by opening up Rotterdam based underground social club ‘Bahn’. The club provides him with the perfect setting and opportunity to spread his profound love for music, invite and embrace nu breed and established talent as well as a platform for his unique ideas about night entertainment.
