In Miami last year I discovered a DJ named Heidi Van Den Amstel, who played a brilliant set at Sunday School one of the closing events during Miami’s annual party week (WMC) in March. When I got back to London I made sure I checked her out again as soon as I could, the next time I saw her play was an eight hour long set, during which time she kept my friends and I dancing all night.
Deetron is a Swiss native with an impressive history, having been entrenched in the house and techno worlds since the early nineties and still going strong. A highly-skilled DJ as well as an accomplished and well-respected producer, Deetron will be appearing in Heidi’s Jackathon room at the huge 8th birthday celebration for London-based record shop and label Phonica. Here he enlightens me on his history, imparts some advice to youngsters and touches on the importance of Phonica Records.
