Oooh no, yet another Biography of such a promising hot artist.
Here we go: Dj, Producer and allround nice guy ONNO (24/01/1983) can be seen as one of todays most promising Dutch DJs and producers. He made his first mark in the dance scene by becoming the youngest ever resident of the notorious Amsterdam based clubnight Chemistry in 2001, a pretty decent playground for a 19 year old we must say.
A few years later his productioncareer took off in collaboration with Rocco Mundo. Their initial material landed straight in the boxes of Dubfire and Steve Lawler amongst others and Sander Kleinenberg even personally called to comment on the quality and freshness of the tracks. It didnt take long before tracks were Licensed to labels like Little Mountain, Renaissance and Stealth Records. Gigs from all over the world in clubs like Paradiso (Amsterdam), Red-Light (Paris), Space (Miami) and festivals like Mysteryland, Dance Valley and Sensation White soon followed. After this he was picked up by Earth (Amsterdam) to join their team of residents and join their agency.
Fastforward to 2009, and we find ONNO with a matured sound firmly rooted in the underground. With his first solo EP on Berlin based Upon You Recordings (the Masterdam EP, a hommage to his hometown Amsterdam), and releases planned on Tiefschwarz's Souvenir imprint amongst others, it's easy to see why his future is looking bright.
2009 is also the year his Collaboration with longtime friend Victor Coral, PRESETONE, really took off. Soon after they started working together their first record "Gummi Tape" was released on the German quality imprint Circle Music (digital/cd/vinyl). Two new releases are confirmed on 90Watts recordings. PRESETONE is resident at Electronation Radio, which is broadcast on national public radio and through the internet. Together they also organise Babylon, a tech house oriented clubnight at Amsterdam's number one club, Studio 80 where they invite (inter)national dj's and producers they esteem highly. Babylon was an instant succes and was sold out from the opening night. Guests in 2009 included Audiofly, Tim Green, Davide Squillace, David K and Luca Bacchetti.
