Rotterdam 30 october 2009 – Jan Oostdyk is well on his way of becoming the next big thing in the international dance scene. After releases like ‘Eivissa Eivissa’ and ‘Out Of The Box’, that got supported by the biggest dj’s that walk the planet (Tiesto, Armin van Buuren, Ferry Corsten, Paul van Dyk etc), he is now being recognized as the biggest upcoming talent of 2009 by both Ferry Corsten and Sied van Riel! “I ABSOLUTELY DIDN’T SEE THIS COMING!”
“At the beginning of this year I started producing under my own name, just because I thought the time was right for it after a lot of collaborations and aliases!”, says Oostdyk. “To me it’s very important that a record has the right balance between emotion and power, something that hopefully can be heard in my own productions.”
So far 2009 has been a highlight year for Oostdyk, featuring some strong releases and support from the biggest names modern trance has to offer. Tiesto’s invitation to perform the 15 Minutes Of Fame in his international radioshow Club Life came as a pleasant surprise, but when Ferry Corsten and Sied van Riel recognized Oostdyk as the biggest talent of 2009 in their interviews for the annual DJ Mag Top 100 list the champagne was taken out of the fridge at the Oostdyk residence!
“I absolutely didn’t see this coming, but I’m extremely happy with it of course! I’m glad that my music is not only appreciated by fans, but also by my colleagues!” says an enthusiastic Oostdyk.
The near future Jan Oostdyk has some big plans for the near future, such as a tour throughout Asia, coming up with a decent follow up to his smash hit ‘Eivissa Eivissa’, collaborations with some very big artists and several remixes, such as Misja Helsloot vs Signum – RTFM.
