LatinJockey @ Hengelo Ov
So, this is goodbye! After almost 10 years of spinning, the time has come for me to say goodbye to this awesome craft. I`ve seen a lot of places and met a ton of interesting and beautiful people and I`ll look back fondly on these moments.
However, the last year being a DJ started to feel like actual work, while it`s always been something I did simply because I loved doing it, and this was a sign for me. So, after a about year of thinking about it, I finally decided to quit.
I want to thank everybody for being such a good audience, my fellow DJs for sharing the passion of music and I want to thank all the organizers for booking me over the last ten years. And as always, I`m looking at the bright side of things: I`ve got a lot more free nights to go out and be on the other side of the turning tables
See you around, and keep on dancing!
Sebastian Terpstra (LatinJockey) started his DJ career in Enschede (The Netherlands) when a dance school owner asked him if he would be willing to be his resident DJ, considering his musical background. Within months, he was asked to play at a variety of parties through the eastern part of the Netherlands and his name quickly grew within the salsa community. Nowadays, he performs at parties and festivals throughout the Netherlands, always bringing the vibe that makes people dance, and dance some more. Prior to his DJ career, LatinJockey was active as a music producer, producing songs ranging from ballads and rock to hip-hop and dance.
The moment he started to dance salsa was also the moment he started to appreciate a genre new to him, latin music, which inspired him to produce latin music as well. This, in result, got him his first gigs as a DJ. Being a salsa dancer for almost 5 years, he has learned to appreciate the many different styles within the latin music genre; as a beginner trying to hold on to the ‘1’ in salsa romantica and salsa cubana, and as an intermediate going wild for the ‘2’ in salsa dura, mambo, guaguanco and son. Because of this, he has a very wide preference of music, which is reflected in his extensive record case. Among his favorite artists are Eddie Palmieri, Sonera Ponceña and Tipica 73, but also Marc Anthony, Oscar D’Leon and La Sonora Carruseles. When performing, he contiuously observes the dance floor, filling it with a mix of music for the dancers present, inspring both beginners and advanced dancers to step on the dancefloor and get their groove on.
He is appreciated for his variety in musical styles and his ability to adjust to the crowd. For more information, visit http://www.latinjockey.nl/ or www.facebook.com/latinjockey.
