Amsterdam based house and techhouse dj/producer Luuk van Dijk (‘96) started producing electronic music in 2011. In 2013, he won the Kunstbende DJ-contest and that gave him a well deserved spot at Mysteryland 2014!

Besides that, Luuk performed in clubs like De Marktkantine, Studio 80, Basis and Factory 010 and at festivals like DGTL Festival, Straf_Werk, Amsterdam Open Air and A day at the Park. He played alongside The Martinez Brothers, Jamie Jones, Hot Since 82, Skream, Noir, Detroit Swindle, Nic Fanciulli, Shadow Child and even did a b2b set with Huxley during the after party of Straf_Werk Festival.
With releases on Roush and Food UK did his first release on Roush ‘Body E.P.’ in 2015, got some amazing reviews and support from Marco Corola, Huxley, Sidney Charles, Felix Da Housecat, Darius Syrossian and Joris Voorn. As Manchester based music platform XYST reports: “A cracking EP that hints at great promise, we can’t wait to hear more from Mr. Van Dijk over the next while.”
Although he’s very young, his own productions and dj-sets are filled with sounds that take you back to the old days but are contemporary at the same time. An old soul you might call it, Luuk van Dijk has only started to show the world what he stands for musically.
