Biography

Born in Holland in 1982 Maarten developed his passion for dance music at the tender age of 10. Listening to (and highly motivated by) the ‘Turn up the Bass’ compilations, it gave him the inspiration to start producing music on his Amiga 500.

Aged just 15 Maarten took to the decks, spinning music on his then belt drive turntables. Becoming one of the youngest resident DJs in Holland he played in local clubs and began networking with other DJs and producers.

From there he embarked on his production career at the age of 17, releasing his first track in the same year

‘Massive’ brought with it a quick-fire raft of support from DJs including Tiësto, Armin and Paul Van Dyk. ‘Mono’, which was released in 2008 on Sander Van Doorns Doorn Records scored a No.1 slamdunk on Beatport’s chart. And his track ‘ID’ became a fully-fledged roof raiser – which gained support from Dave Dresden, Ferry Corsten and Marco V amongst others.

Maarten’s studio sound is difficult to fit into one neat electronic music style. I guess tech trance but very much his own unique creation within that very open genre and one that in a short space of time has delivered a big statement to the international music scene.

Maarten’s studio skill has also resulted in several highly-lauded remixes for luminaries like Ronski Speed, Talla 2XLC, Cor Fijneman, David Forbes & Rapid Eye. His rewiring of Perpetuous Dreamer’s ‘The Sound of Goodbye’ was seized upon by its original producer, Armin Van Buuren and given full support during his ‘Imagine 2008 world tour’

In 2009 Maarten again hit the studio hard and smashed the world appearing in every big DJ track list all year with Life is too Short and his remix of new Ukranian superstar Tigran Oganezov – Neanderthal tearing up dance floors worldwide. Many more top relases on his home at Spinnin records has cemented Maartens place in the big league of tech trance artists.He also remixed the trance classic The Act – Something about U which got huge plays by Tiesto who has taken quite a shine to Maarten and been pushing every track from his countryman.

With his ‘Solid Sessions’ radio show Maarten combines his sound into a highly energetic and eclectic mix, which finds its own diverse style every month. It also gives him the opportunity to experiment with his own forthcoming tracks, while reaching a broad span of electronic music fans right around the world. The ‘Solid Sessions’ show is transforming into Maartens ‘FULLY LOADED’ in 2010 so keep an eye and ear out for Hollands dirty tech trance superstars new brand.

Maarten is now also an accomplished deck-wrecking DJ. With his UK and Ukrainian debuts completed in early 2010 in back to back weeks and many more debuts in planning its set to be Maartens breakthrough year as an International DJ.As he always says: “Every day is a different day!” Electro, techno, minimal and trance – he plays them all, weaving them into his own mind-blowing mix. Whichever way they go, each set always has ‘Maarten de Jong’ stamped all over it and with Tiesto taking him under his wing, the backing of Sander van Doorn, Eddie Halliwell, Mark Sherry and many more of the words elite, Maarten de Jong is set to be the next superstar DJ/producer to come off the never ending conveyer belt of Dutch world beaters!

Sander van Doorn – Maarten de Jong is one of the most versatile new breed tech trance producers of the moment. His sound is very unique and his tracks are well represented in my DJ sets.

Mark Sherry – Maarten de Jong is the freshest tech-trance talent to burst onto the scene since Sander van Doorn…I play everything this man produces
