You won’t find DE:MOOR on every possible (after) party, nor will you see him posting one Facebook status after another, talking about “amazing vibes” or “bomb tracks”. Most of his days are spent in a small room that is filled to the brim with (classic) drum machines, synthesizers, compressors, filters, and other sound toys. This is a habit he probably picked up from his mentor Steve Rachmad, Amsterdam’s number one techno pioneer. His preference for strong, pure sounds and an honest, artisanal approach to music also shows in his latest releases on Ovum and Pokerflat Recordings. ‘Lectures’, featuring some of Theo Parrish’s remarks about music, was cleared and endorsed by Mr. Parrish himself.
As a DJ, Wouter walks the line between the techno from his roots, and more house oriented tracks, as long as the music satisfies his need for the pure and straight forward approach mentioned above. His schedule entails all of the Dutch circuit, spiked with excursions to fabric London, Ibiza, Goa, South Korea, Belgium, and Berlin.
