Who is Erick E
Aside from his energetic and danceable mix of (tribal) grooves, the main reasons for Erick E’s immense popularity are his infectious enthusiasm and charisma behind the decks. His interaction with the crowd is simply second to none. He’s the undisputed Number One DJ from Amsterdam. Wherever he goes, expect sell-out crowds of happy people, dancing to the grooves of Erick ‘Boogie Down!’ E.
DMC World Finals
Erick E’s DJ-career kicked off in 1986, when he started making a name for himself in Amsterdam as an extraordinary hip-hop DJ. His DJ talents didn’t go unnoticed. In 1989, he won the Dutch DMC Championship and that was just the start of things to come. One year later, Erick E represented the Netherlands at the DMC World Finals. In the following years his musical soundtrack changed, but his star kept rising at high velocity.
New generation of Dutch DJ’s
In 1995, Erick E was the face and sound of a new generation of DJs to emerge from the Netherlands. His hard work and rising popularity resulted in his Saturday night residency at Amsterdam’s legendary house temple RoXY. His weekly ‘SWET’ nights were a huge success and were frequented by some of Amsterdam’s most extravagant clubbers. Sadly though, it all came to an end in 1998, when a slightly over-exuberant celebration of the death of one of RoXY’s founders ended in the fiery demise of Holland’s most famous club ever.
Dance Valley and Sensation
With the demise of RoXY, Erick E lost his weekly steady job. However, it didn’t leave him unemployed. In fact, ErickE soon had a busier schedule than ever before. Without his weekly RoXY engagement, Erick E was free to go wherever he liked and he soon became Holland’s most in-demand DJ. His reputation as a groovy party-starter got him booked in every corner of Holland, at both intimate and huge dance events, ranging from mainstream to underground. Erick E has done it all! He rocked the decks at Dance Valley main stage as well as at the massive Sensation event hosted in the Amsterdam Arena for a crowd of 40.000.

Erick E’s schedule is not limited to the Netherlands though, as he has spun across the globe at high profile clubs like Haoman 17 in Jerusalem, Amnesia and El Divino in Ibiza, Crobar in Miami Beach, and Turnmills in London, to name but a few. Erick also started a few of his own club nights. His first project was the prestigious EVE club night for which he invited the likes of David Morales, Deep Dish, Junior Sanchez, Yousef, Phats n Smalls and Felix da Housecat, who all joined him is a musical extravaganza for an audience filled with fashionistas.
EVE came to an end in 2002, but in 2004 ErickE started a new project called SNEAKERZ together with some close friends and colleagues. Sneakerz is a concept that offers young, upcoming creative artists the opportunity to squirt their creative juices in front of a big audience. Sneakerz is still going strong and is putting a definite mark on the Dutch dance scene with innovative features and constant sell out crowds.
