Front man and founder of Im House is working hard bringing both his personal career as well as “Im House” to the next level.
After performances in Studio 80, Paradiso, the major summer festivals and the showcase at ADE in October 2010 Bjorn Wolf has been gaining respect…
and recognition on national and international level with his melodic techno. With new productions receiving support by James Zabiela, John Acquaviva, El Mundo & Santori and Peter Horrevorts to name a few, the man is breaking through the underground scene in Holland and beyond. Conquering countries like Germany and Bulgaria.
DJ and producer Bjorn Wolf, born January 31st 1981, began his love affair with house music as a teenager. From there, it was only a matter of time until he started experimenting with playing and mixing records.
Jump ahead to 1998 and his hobby had started to morph into a career. He began playing at local clubs and parties and in 1999 he secured a weekly residency at a club in Breda. But this wasn’t just any club. This was the legendary Spock – the club where big names DJ’s like Tiesto, Funkerman and Cor Fijneman launched their careers with Bjorn Wolf playing alongside.
From there Bjorn began rocking the Dutch clubs and festivals and soon became pegged as a rising star of the scene. Then, in 2005 he started his own club night called “Onversneden” at Club Puur in Eindhoven. But even that wasn’t enough for this industrious artist. Bjorn decided he needed to immerse himself even further in the music industry, so he began spending his days working at Tiesto’s record store Magik. This kept him up to scratch with the latest releases and trends in house music, making sure his sets were always cutting edge. He continued to work for Tiesto even after the store’s closure, taking on a role at Black Hole Recordings.
In 2002 Bjorn started to work on his producing skills and teamed up with the Pirates For Life Crew. This collaboration resulted in an epic remix of Duran Duran’s Save A Prayer, which was picked up by major Dutch radio stations Radio 538 and Slam FM. The track was also supported by Dutch DJ’s like Lucien Foort and Erick E.
The success of the Duran Duran remix brought Bjorn’s talent to the attention of artists such as Eddie Thoneick, Harisson Crump, Lucien Foort, Fedde le Grand, Elize, Chris Willis (David Guetta Vocalist), Olav Basoski and the Deepside DJs. Bjorn was soon responsible for a whole host of remixes, working together with fellow producer Johnstar to create some memorable tracks.
Bjorn Wolf and Johnstar’s Love Is Blind was featured on the Sneakerz mix compilation alongside artists like Bob Sinclair, Dennis Ferrer, Âme, Fedde le Grand, Peter Gelderblom and René Amesz. The track was also used on the Ministry of Sound compilation, mixed by Fedde le Grand. Another track Roll Wit It utilising vocals from Chris Willis, was included on Sneakerz Vol. 8 in 2009 and received support from major DJs such as Roger Sanchez, Dennis Ruyer (538 dance department) Eelco Wyninga (3fm/Los), Axwell, Matt Darey, Stonebridge, Freemasons and Muzzaik.
In 2009 Bjorn played at some of the biggest dance festivals and events in the country. This included spots at Mystery Land, Flamingo Nights, Amsterdam Dance Event and his own successful party “IM House”. Given his increased focus on production and his danceable mix of house, groove and minimal, along with bags of enthusiasm and a genuine passion for music, Bjorn has a promising future ahead. Keep your eyes open for this awesome talent.
