On Saturday the 20th of November I went to Play & Produce 2010 at Vooruit in Gent. This one day event, organized by Poppunt, is the place to be for all electronic music scene lovers with workshops, masterclasses, mixtape feedback, photoshoots and lots of gear (software + hardware) to get your hands on. Every visitor gets the chance to meet with other deejays, producers and electronic musicians sharing the same passion.

A couple of weeks before, I participated in a mixtape contest and won my own professionally recorded DJ-clip at Play & Produce. I got the chance to play with some high-end Pioneer Pro DJ gear: 2 CDJ-2000 players and 1 DJM-2000 mixer. My set was recorded live from multicamera positions and behind me there was a led-screen showing various beat-synchronized images. I can say that it was a hell of an experience and thanks again to all people who made this possible!

While waiting for the actual DJ-clip video and photoshoot results, I can already post the audiotrack of my Play & Produce set. All tracks are signed to the Om Records label, which is one of my favourites ’cause they know how house music should sound like in all of its subgenres and styles.

From our humble beginnings in 1995, Om has grown to become a highly recognized and respected brand in the global music scene.

Om Winter Sessions

It all began back in 2003 with a great gig of Marko at MusiCafé while studying in Leuven. Later on I discovered his "Marko on Sundays" compilations released under the N.E.W.S. Records label. These little gems of progressive house music convinced me to create a new mix of only the most funky, dirty and deep underground tunes. The last compilation already dates from 2005, but still it sounds like it could have been released yesterday. This proves the timelessness of Marko’s musical flavour as both a DJ and artist.
 
His biography only confirms what has been stated before:
 
For the past 14 years Marko has been the resident DJ for the legendary "La Rocca on Sunday" nights at La Rocca Ballroom in Lier which is a quite remarkable achievement. He has been called a specialist by some and ‘middle of the road’ by others, but everyone agrees: Marko has got real talent and he is a true professional. For years his name appeared in the Belgian top 10 DJ’s readers poll of dance music magazine "Outsoon". In 2004 he was also voted "Best Belgian Progressive DJ". His main source of energy comes directly from the dance floor. Its feedback drives him on. He’s a master in picking up its vibe and guiding it into his sets. An amazing collection of vinyl helps him to create an incredible atmosphere among the party crowd.

If you’re not convinced by now, then you should visit La Rocca on a Sunday night when Marko spins the decks and you’ll know what I mean. In the meanwhile you can always download my set and have an early experience with your own ears. I’m sure you’ll want to get out and party all night long after listening to these progressive sounds. Don’t say that I haven’t warned you!
