As he began shaping his musical style in 2003, he discovered that his attention could not be captured by one genre alone. He soon found out that he loved, minimal techno, deep minimal, mikrohouse, clickhop, click’s ‘n cuts and experimental electronics. His interest in all this, materialised in his Cupatec alias, under which he played among the best DJ’s of the Dutch techno and minimal-scene. Emphasising on experimenting with all these styles blended together in his skilful and always changing DJ sets, he’s now breaking his way into the bigger events of the Dutch dance scène.
Cupatec has quietly infiltrated the ranks of the Dutch minimal scene with an edgy and immediately recognisable sound. Tricky, stalking, complex and not afraid for experiments.
Combining a tight weave of deep dry clicking techno in a bass heavy setting.
This with freaky and chunky minimal, which he tops of with electrostatic mikrohouse.
It's a sound that has been gaining him more fans every time. Using three decks and fx, he’s able to create every atmosphere he pleases.
Cupatec is renowned as a smooth skilful DJ with a broad style. A theme and sound that defies the typical stereotypes of today's dancemusic. This modern, non aggressive sound with a keen sense of energy for the dance-floor has gained him praise and respect.
Recently, his DJ sets have crept up to grace on the dance-floors at Integrate, Xcess and Vollt. Also have they been a feature at Minimal Eindhoven. His main objective is to twist and bend new sounds and rhythms into his DJ sets and music productions.
Whether, it's, deep techno, deep minimal or clickhop'n'cutz there are no limits to what Cupatec will do next. Watch, listen and experience this emotional rollercoaster ride as he continues to craft the sound of music culture in the 21st century.
His DJ sets depend on
Fullfat soundsystems, Technics turntables , open-minded people, old and new records,
hours of sleep the night before, a few vodka’s, proper Pollum and gallons of Red Bull.
