Jamie Lie A Kwie’s story begins with his participation in Benelux’ biggest DJ contest, the TWSTd DJ contest, which he eventually ends up winning resulting in playing at Holland’s leading events such as Awakenings. Not much later Jamie becomes resident of Rotterdam’s legendary underground club Catwalk. With his captivating and qualitative sets filled with unexpected and intriguing grooves, he grows into one of the familiar faces of the Rotterdam underground scene.
Meanwhile Jamie engages more and more in creating his own music and this doesn’t go unnoticed. His first release ‘BUTT EP’, in collaboration with Jeff Moore, on EC Records immediately gains worldwide attention and is supported by the absolute top players like Loco Dice and Matthias Tanzmann, who includes the track for his compilation on the international acclaimed FABRIC series.
Being a resident of the notorious club Catwalk and later on TOFFLER, Jamie played numerous warm-up sets for renowned artists like Seth Troxler. It is by playing all these warm-up sets Jamie really began to understand how to enchant a crowd throughout the night and keep them interested, resulting in playing long sets exceeding closing hours.
At the moment Jamie is working on several projects including his own clubnight called ‘WAVES’ in which he carries out the same philosophy as in his own dj sets: not a continuous build-up until eventually all energy has been spilled, but sets that captivate the crowd full of highs and depths, wave after wave.
For the near future releases are expected on high quality underground labels such as Tzinah Records, Arupa and Moral Fiber.
