Born and raised in Den Bosch, during his teens D-Tec had a brief fondness of early Hardcore. For a few years his attention switched to Hip-Hop and Rap music, which gave him certain tools needed for his musical growth. By his late teens D-Tec started visiting clubs for the first time, which really opened his eyes and ears. From that point on nothing could deter his love for Dancemusic.
D-Tec's sound can be desribed as a warm mixture of gleefully uplifting, yet hard hitting kicks combined with raw unadulterated synths and pounding percussions.
A set by D-Tec is vibrant, juicy but also really gets your groove on.
Getting a crowd going is also one of the major components in what gets D-Tec to love what he does. That wonderful feeling when connecting to a group of likeminded individuals with nothing more than good Techno, beats just about anything.
BAM! Anything goes. Give and get.

Mich-K is known as a musical Chameleon (K for kameleon in Dutch). He started primarily as an allround DJ playing at different venues throughout the Netherlands. He played different styles at different locations and wasn’t afraid to mix those styles together. Some would call his style at that time eclectic and some called it a crazy rollercoaster ride. But all agreed one one thing: They had a hell of a time.
It was in that period of his live that Mich-K discovered Techno and felt its energy pumping through his veins. In the early 00’s he slit down deeper into the gutters of Techno and started experimenting with playing and mixing techno. This is how he discovered his joy for the harder Techno-styles. Eventually, it where the deeper sides and shades of Techno, which Mich-K fell in love with.
At this point in time, Mich-K’s (minimal) Techno sets explore the different styles. It’s like a wave which’ll take you from one emotion to another. From one mood to another, until you realize that you were on a two hour Techno trip. Besides his profound joy in Techno, Mich-K still likes to flirt with some of the other styles, which he sometimes likes to blend into his sets. Giving the crowd a new perspective on Techno.
