Koenie - Artists | Retro Acid




Back in 1985 he started working in the infamous record shop USA Import where he discovered (all different genres) that are now known as the roots of today's house music.

Starting his DJ career in the late eighties (mixing pop, new wave, disco and soul) he soon became thoroughly interested in house music. No wonder he was one of the DJ's performing at the first open-air house parties in Belgium near Antwerp and numerous parties in Brussels with dj's like Ricki Montanari, Ralph and Dutch pioneer Eddy De Clerck. Because of this he got the chance to play in Rimini (Italy) and became resident at Café d'Anvers, one of the first Belgian clubs to promote house music. After that he became a welknown guest in the Dutch dance scene where he teamed up in club Roxy (Amsterdam) on Friday night with Joost Van Bellen, Remy, 100%ISIS, Marcello, Dimitri ... all living icons of that thriving Amsterdam scene.

He founded the labels Wonka Beat and Wally's Groove World.
