Dj Martien V. (Martien Verheyden) was born and raised in Amsterdam. Her life has been one long musical journey. She grew up with music in the classical genre.
As a kid she played the piano and drums for many years. Soon she developped a great passion for electronic music in general, and particularly for house music.
She still has a great preference for the sound of Chicago and Detroit, one of the cities where the founders of house and techno came from, and ‘oldskool’ acid house.
Martien says she was very lucky to participate the beginning of housemusic in Amsterdam from within the famous clubs as Roxy and iT, where the pioneers of the Dutch dance-scene had their first successes.
Looking back at that inspiring period, her deep passion for housemusic has started there..
Sound: Martien likes to play deep house, minimal, oldskool, technohouse and techno.. with a touch of disco.
In her sets she combines classics, ‘oldskool’, and new productions. Deep layered bass lines and sharp high hats run through it like a continuous thread, always bound together in a tuneful, melodic way.
She is really fond of the sound of the 303, 808 and 909.
