Profile:
Joop, was born in 1975 in Leeuwarden (Holland) and his first contact with the world of vinyl, headphones and turntables was at the tender age of 13. Three years later he started at a local club in his hometown on Friday night and Saturday night. And while he was doing his thing, the love for music kept on growing.

Joop played at Mystery Land (2002/2003), Trance Energy (2002/2003/2004), Sensation Black VIP (2003/2004) in the Amsterdam Arena, Innercity and at the ID&T Radio Tour together with DJ’s Marco V, Johan Gielen, Dana, Yves de Ruyter and Armin van Buuren.

On the Dutch ranking list of international DJ’s DJ Joop is listed as number 40!

Having established a solid reputation on the Dutch Club/Tech-Trance scene, Joop went on to launch a record in 2002. His first release on the label of ID&T was an innovative track entitled "Act of God". It was a huge hit all over Europe and was played by DJ’s like Cosmic Gate, Snowman, Marcel Woods and Blank & Jones, Johan Gielen, Armin van Buuren, Matt Darey, Mark Sherry,Sterling Moss, Quicksilver, M.I.K.E., Paul Mendez and Cor Fijneman.

Joop’s second release is "Sonsuz", which contains Turkish vocals. The flip site contains a huge Mark Norman remix. (Black Hole) The Sonsuz record has a huge rotation by many dj’s like Armin van Buuren, Graham Gold, Cor Fijnenman, Johan Gielen, Simon Patterson, Judge Jules, etc.

The New track "The World" is out on 06-06-05 and already hammered by Tiesto in Concert. Joop also mixed an ID&T compilation-CD, which was the official Trance Energy 2002 album.

Next to the Netherlands, Joop performs in Germany, Belgium, Switzerland, Poland, North Ireland and Turkey as well.

"The Future" was selected as the official Trance Energy 2007 anthem.
