Taras is your typical citizen of Rotterdam. People who are not afraid to do things slightly different. As goes for the architecture of Rotterdam, Taras is always looking for new ways to find an innovative sound. This didn’t go unnoticed by the house en technoscene.
After a couple of years spinning the decks in the underground scene he started producing in 2007. Warm melodies, effective bass lines and crazy breaks. He’s been then taking things seriously in his studio. His way of producing has led to some surprising results. So it’s almost impossible to put his sound in a genre. In the end it’s all about the result; a ecstatic dancefloor.
He released a series of Eps and remixes on Manual, Stolen Moments, Exceptional and Mood Music. The release of tracks such as ‘Skylime” on Wolfskuil (co.production with Jelle Kuipers) and “1998” on Rebirth/EC served as a springboard for remixes and attention from international Dj’s like Pete Tong, Richie Hawtin, Agoria, Luciano and a lot of other keyplayers. The tracks have been on number one of the Juno and the Resident advisorcharts for weeks.
Over the last years he has built up his (inter)national reputation by playing at the major clubs and festivals in Europe. Awakenings, Dancevalley, Paradiso, Club 11, Doornroosje, Barcelona (Raum), Londen (The Egg), Antwerpen (Cafe d'Anvers) and Milaan to name a few. His sets are very different from your average DJ. You only have to witness the queues of enthousiasts in front of the Catwalk in Rotterdam where he held long-term residencies. Especially on his long sets. Mellowing his style as times goes by, getting more experimental and spacious with a fresh style of his own. It’s clear that Taras is has made his name in the music scene and his is ready for the next step.For more Information about Taras van de Voorde
