The story of Anoebis starts in 1998. In that year I discovered goa-trance. Immediately I was SO convinced of that music that I bought all the cds I could buy! Pretty soon I had 200 cds which resulted in a first dj-set during newyear 2000.
Around that period I didn’t dj alone. Mostly I played together with a friend called Dave (dj name Paprika) and together we were called PaprikanoebiS. Because Dave was too busy with his studies I played alone since 2001 and before I realised it I was playing more or less every weekend.
The first years of the new millennium were hard. Around that period I was one of the last djs playing “melodic goa trance”, the old school style. Because I loved that style so much and it seemed more or less dead, I and a good friend (Mars/Fabien) deceided to start our own music label called Suntrip Records. Not much later melodic goa-trance started to revive in Belgium and some other countries in the world, and this resulted in many parties with only “old /newschool goa-trance” This meant little sleep for me, but lots of joy! And for some obscure reasons this love for melodic goa trance continues untill today!
To make things clear. I don’t ONLY love melodic goa-trance… I like forest trance, ambient and suomi a lot as well. This resulted in many dj-sets of those particular style once in a while, but the main focus staid melodic goa-trance untill today!
I have checked on how many parties I played by now, and at the end of 2014 I will have played on more or less 450 parties in my life… Mostly in Belgium of course, but last few years a lot in other countries as well… Like Israel, Japan, Brasil, Spain, Finland, Croatia, Serbia, England, France, Portugal, Germany, Switzerland, Czech Republic, Sweden, Norway & The Netherlands!
Altough I’m doing this for a long time now I still love this music (it’s so deep in my heart, you can not imagine) and I still love dj-ing. Nothing fulfills my heart more then a crowd dancing and smiling in the first rays of sunshine!
Thanks for all the support last 14 years and let’s go for the next 14!
