Promotion: Egbert live (GEM, Cocoon Rec. / Rotterdam)
Egbert Van Der Gugten is currently one of the most promising talents within the field of electronic dance music. Jeroen Verheij alias Secret Cinema, whose attention was drawn to Egbert via myspace.com, invited him on the spur of the moment to his parties and his studio in the last years. The student learned the way to perfection and worked on the way for Egbert into the Dutch Techno scene.
After his debut on Lo-Fi Stereo, it was mainly his “Vlammen-EP” on Michel de Hey’s EC Records in February 2009, which went down a bomb on the dancefloors and belonged to the basic vinyl inventory of Sven Väth’s record case in this season. With “Vreugdevuur”, Egbert still tops this and provides Cocoon Recordings with a musical exclamation mark that sets standards in harmonic but consequently demanding Tech-House somewhere in between Dub, Progressive House and Detroit.
Even though Egbert is only 26 he has played in almost all the major festivals and clubs around the world and has done remixes for big international artists like Funk D’Void, Secret Cinema, Carl Cox & Marc Romboy.
With his album release coming up in 2013, Egbert will take it even bigger!
