So-Riel and I got to know each other through the Facebook group Huppels. Her baptism of fire took place in the company of legends like Darkraver and Gizmo. “I thought I would faint from nervousness.”
In 2014, I had a brief contact with Dutch DJ Dimitri about his first gig in Heerhugowaard. However, his first exciting gig was in the famous Amsterdam Club RoXY.
Dutch Shahrooz Safarghandi a.k.a. Shahrooz had a suprise-first-gig. Suddenly, he found himself in a large club in Ibiza. He told me about it in 2016. “Without a doubt, I took over.”
In 2015 I had a chat with Dutch DJ Charmes about his first gig. “I did feel a kind of healthy tension.”
In 2016 I met charming Italians Andrea Bonaiti and Paolo D’Angelo, also known as DJ duo Several Rooms. That same year I asked them about their first gig, which didn’t quite go as planned. “A huge rainstorm erupted!”
