DJ Miss Monica was born on the 12 th of March 1971 in Rotterdam, the Netherlands . Growing up in the biggest harbour city of the world, she started to go out in the house-scene in 1989 and discovered something that would change her life… HOUSE-MUSIC!!! She started DJ-ing in 1992. Thanks to her musical talent, she learned very fast. In 1993 she was asked to become a resident DJ at “NIGHTTOWN” (one of the finest dance clubs in the Netherlands at that time, cap. 2000). In 1994 – 1998 she got her own club-night, every first Saturday of the month at NIGHTTOWN, which was a huge success and she made the party people go crazy !!! She was asked to perform at different clubs and parties all over the Netherlands and her DJ-career was getting bigger and bigger. In 1996 she decided to stop working as a medical analist at a hospital laboratory, to become a professional DJ.

In 1996 she became one of the most popular DJ's in the Netherlands (3 - 5 performances a week), thanks to her excellent DJ performances (with very fine mixing skills !!) and her mixed compilation CD's (Check “DISCOGRAPHY” for more details). She performed at the most respected clubs in the Netherlands like: Nighttown, Roxy. It, Waakzaamheid, ASTA, Mazzo, Maastheater, Escape, Paard, etc and the popular parties like M.T.C., Lunapark, Beachpop, MAW parties, Chesterfield party, Veronica's Mega Music Dance Experience (20.000 people), Dance Valley (25.000 people) and Extrema (parties and festivals). At the Fast Forward Dance Parade 1998 (300.000 people), her truck drew all the attention. She also performed for radio shows such as, Radio 538 “van Diepen's Dance Department” , Radio Veronica and local radio shows.

As a result of her success in the Netherlands she got international recognition and has performed at clubs and parties all over the world like: France (Including performances at Club REX and Club QUEEN in Paris), Ibiza (Pacha), Belgium (Café D'anvers), Switserland (MAD), Turkey (Club 2019), Israël (Haoman17), Spain, Mallorca, Curaçao (Mambo Beach), Germany and so on.

Thank to her excellent performances and skills, she has spinned the wheels with national and international DJ's such as : Ronald Molendijk, Mark van Dale, DJ Jean, Michel de Hey, DJ Remy, Erick E, 100% Isis, Miss Djax, Laurant Garnier, Mr. C, DJ Djulz, Paul van Dijk, Jack de Marseille, Sander Kleinenberg, Eddy de Clercq (EDC), etc, etc.

In 1997 – 1998 she got a second resident club-night at NIGHTTOWN, on Wednesdag called: “FRESH UP”. Funky grooves and solid sounds to enjoy the party people. The party people responded enthusiasticly to “FRESH UP”.

In July 1998 the unexpected happened. She became very ill with Mononucleosis, and even worse, she was diagnosed CFS (Chronic Fatigue Syndrome). Because of this very serious illness she was not able to perform as a DJ for 5 years. In July 2003 she miraculously recovered from CFS and can live life again. Now she is getting into normal life, becoming stronger and stronger.
