In 1990 DJ Miss Monica discovered something that would change her life… HOUSE-MUSIC!!! She started DJ-ing in 1992. Thanks to her musical talent, she learned very fast. In 1993 she was asked to become a resident DJ at NIGHTTOWN (awards winning BEST CLUB). In 1994 till 1998 she got her own club-night, every first Saturday of the month at NIGHTTOWN, which was a huge success!!!
She was asked to perform at different clubs and parties all over the Netherlands and her DJ-career was getting bigger and bigger. In 1996 she decided to stop working as a medical analyst at a hospital laboratory, to become a professional DJ.
In 1996 she became one of the most popular DJ’s in the Netherlands (3 – 5 performances a week), thanks to her excellent DJ performances (with very fine mixing skills !!) and her mixed compilation CD’s. She performed at the most respected clubs, parties and festivals in the Netherlands like: Nighttown, Roxy.

At the Fast Forward Dance Parade 1998 (300.000 people), her own truck drew all the attention. She also performed for radio shows such as, Radio 538 van Diepen’s Dance Department, Radio Veronica and local radio shows.
As a result of her success in the Netherlands she got international recognition and has performed at clubs and parties all over the world like: France (Including performances at Club REX and Club QUEEN in Paris), Ibiza (Pacha), Belgium (Cafe D’anvers), Switzerland (MAD), Turkey (Club 2019), Israel (Haoman17), Spain, Mallorca, Curacao (Mambo Beach), Germany and so on.
