Talking about someone who refuses to be definable in conventional genres means talking about Ché! Having a father, who used to be a leading club owner in the Netherlands, this youngster got involved in dance music even before learning to walk.
With the legendary club ‘Rockefeller’ practically situated in his backyard he got both influenced and inspired by the DJ’s that were playing there. As he sneaked into the club, at an intolerable age and sometimes even without his parents knowing, artists like Fedde le Grand and Marco V hooked him to fill their shoes.
Determined to reach this goal, to become a crowd satisfactory professional, Ché started to develop his own style. Like many others he started to play at local parties. Soon his extremely refined taste for mass engaging music got noticed. He has a distinctive way of connecting to the audience and his fans call him a ‘tastemaker’.
His infinitive drive is triggering his eagerness to dig into the music as deep as possible. Ché swiftly found out that just taking piano lessons and a course to use LogicPro would not satisfy him quick enough, so he decided to include his father in his masterplan. As he goes way back with John Dirne, who is the owner of the internationally well-known White Villa Studio’s (which is one of the most high profiled recording facilities for dance music worldwide), John offered some downtime and production assistance in one of his studios. This was Ché’s chance to develop some tracks with which he claims his own genre called ChéDM!
Ché is preparing an array of releases on high profiled labels; to start with his debut release on John Christian’s massively supported Freeway Recordings. Also the release of a monthly radio/online TV show holds a prominent place on the agenda. Besides all that, Ché will be playing a lot this summer. Lakedance Festival (alongside artists like Bingo Players and W&W) and BH Hotels Mallorca (alongside artists like Nicky Romero and Oliver Heldens) have already secured their piece of the Chévolution. The summer season of 2017 looks bright with a major kick off in April at the Pacha on Ibiza.
