DJ Dutch (Niels Wijers, 1983) is born in Nijmegen and raised in the south/east of The Netherlands. He loved music as soon as he had a pair of ears.
With a musical father and mother, he was brought up on music and his DJ career originated as an allround DJ. With a decent knowledge of music from the 60 ‘s till now he is mostly influenced by artists and DJ’s like Hardwell, Major Lazer, Chuckie and many more! Also older influences like bubbling and old school hip hop and music from the late 70’s, 80’s and 90’s can be heard in his sets. Topped off with a little Latin music like reggaeton, mambo & salsa and offcourse EDM and dance. DJ Dutch plays is an eclectic DJ that plays a variety of different styles.
His mixing style is fast and his track choices are all influenced by approachable and recognizable music in all international music styles..
DJ Dutch likes to think ‘outside of the box’ and that’s exactly why his style can’t be pushed into one. Mashing things up, to go where others don’t go and turning a smile on everyone’s face on the dancefloor is his mission. That mission succeeded in winning several DJ contests.
It all started back in 2001 when he was given the chance to become resident DJ at Sparks fun and flair bar, located in Arnhem, The Netherlands. In the years that followed he was a resident DJ at Olde Beth, Wehl, Netherland, Club Xero, Dinxperlo, The Netherlands, he performed at Candyland and Lentebeats festival. Kingsday Eindhoven, Kingsday Amsterdam and several other festivals and locations across the globe. He played his music in several countries like Egypt, United Kingdom, Italy, Spain, Greece, Poland, Indonesia, Russia, Germany, Belgium and even The United States.
Next to a DJ career he also produces his own music. With his first track ‘Show me’ he topped the charts at the number 1 position in the Blue Drop Records label charts and there are still a lot of releases to come. Mostly EDM, but also some moombahton, future house and tropical house tracks.
