My Name is Martijn, DJ name Eighties Kid.
I was born in the eighties and so was house music and I’m still influenced by this area. I’m mainly focussed on house and tech house music, with now and then techno.
Inspired by many DJ’s like Roger Sanchez and Todd Terry, but also artists from the ‘new’ genaration like Luuk van Dijk and Mason Maynard.

My highlight as a DJ was performing at the Amsterdam Dance Event and a local festival called Ploegendienst. I’m trying to get a busier schedule as a DJ and gain more exposure for my own productions. I think a radio show could give me that boost I’m looking for.

When I listen to tech house music I sometimes feel that many artists play the “mainstream” songs only. I feel that every set (whether it’s a radio show or a live event) should be a mix of well known songs and so called hidden gems. I think it’s still possible to stand out by making a great selection of songs.
