Berlin - Ibiza - Berlin: Girl Scout Labelnight
Veto Social Club Ibiza
Martijn ten Velden has established himself as a leading DJ/producer on an international level, playing his signature twisted house sets to crowds all over the world. He’s rocked legendary dance floors including Renaissance in London, Redlight in Paris, Peppermint in Dubai, as well as Godskitchen and Ministry of Sound.
And if you can’t find Martijn rocking the roofs off a club, then you’ll find him in the studio, producing and remixing a string of today’s club hits. Responsible for chart-toppers including “I Wish You Would” which became a huge anthem in Ibiza during Summer 2006 and 2007, as well as Martijn’s recently released remix on Defected Records, the Shapeshifters remake of Orbital’s classic anthem “Chime”.
Successful partnerships with Mark Knight for Toolroom Records, and most recently Splittr, a collaboration with Mark Yardley from the Stanton Warriors, prove how innovative and evolving Martijn’s work can be. This has earned him the respect and support from jocks like Roger Sanchez, Deep Dish and Steve Lawler. So it comes as no surprise that Martijn was nominated for 'Best Artist' and 'Outstanding Remix' at 2006’s House Music Awards. Winter Music Conference 2008 also saw Martijn’s compilation ‘Toolroom Knights Vol 1’ on Toolroom Records up for nomination at the 2008 IDMA Awards, for ‘Best Compilation’ which was up against MOS The Annual and Ultra Dance 08 on Ultra Records.
Keen to keep his name in the headlines, Martijn now spends most of his time working on solo productions and remixes, as well as touring worldwide.
