Biography

DenDer a.k.a. anti trust(live) a.k.a. D. Matana was born on 22-04-75 in Amsterdam but nowadays lives in Purmerend, an A’dam suburb.

He started his DJ career in 1996 when he was living in Eindhoven where he studied to become an industrial designer. After playing for friends on birthdays and stuff, he had his first gig for Amsterdam fm radio, where he played with the guys and girls from ‘the bus party organization’. After this little success it only went up for this guy. After some family drama he had to move to Purmerend. This wasn’t a bad thing eventually because he got a job at the local radio station. He began as a studio technician but in a short period of time moved up to present his own program called ‘wattbass’. This was the only underground dance program at the moment and became a great success. DJ’s like Bart Skils,d-jay alias,miss wendy(miss 909),carloid have played on his show. Because of the success of the program DenDer decided to go and organize parties of himself. The ‘Amsterdam underground techno organization’ was born and started out in DJ cafe ‘tetra’ in Amsterdam. In this DJ cafe he gave some cool parties but it was too small for his needs. So he created a concept called ‘acid untergrund’ and did some parties in ‘Wilhelmina Pakhuis’ , at the moment one of the hottest locations in Amsterdam. But also in Purmerend he got his fame of becoming the first DJ who played in the local coffeeshop creating the evening called ‘shopsound’. This got the attention of the organizers of the biggest outdoor event of Purmerend, luilak dance event, and they invited him to come and play and close down the evening. This was a major success and now he is one of the organizers to and played for 5 years in succession now. At the last LDE 2008 DenDer performed as anti trust with a live hardware set.

With the coming of a new venue in Purmerend, p3, DenDer smelled his change and is working there as a sound technician on the dance evenings. But of course he also organizes his own parties some on his own like ‘exercise your mind’ but also in collaboration with others like tec 909 creating the ‘planet network organisation’, both concepts are still running at the moment. Artists like billy nasty, dano, flamman, abraxas, sunny d, celli(es), dr vinni(9 lifes of hoffmann) already played at his parties and there is more to come…

In the year 2008 DenDer decided it’s time for his own label called Acid Cult Records and pick up on the organisation part. In collaboration with ADHD sessions, trance mafia and switch they organize paradise park and a midsummer nights dream…
