My Biography

Esther Duijn‘s sound is characterised by the deep and solid side of techno and house music. Growing up in The Netherlands shaped Esther’s music as she absorbed the rich Dutch scene of the time.

Having released on labels like Fred P‘s Soul People Music, Portuguese Exquisite Music, and the Belgian Coïncidence Records, solo and also with her long-time production partner Steady Douglas as “Duijn & Douglas”, Duijn has shown her skill as a producer and a DJ, with over 18 vinyl releases under her belt.

This has not gone unnoticed by the scene, earning her resident DJ slots at Tresor and Sisyphos, both in Berlin and appearances at Panorama bar, Freerotation Festival, Berns and Trouw, along with countless other clubs and festivals across Europe and beyond.

Duijn is co-organiser of Donker in Amsterdam and hosts a night called Another Earth which has had artists like German master Moritz Von Oswald.

Esther loves to mix the old, the new, the rare, the deep and the raw parts of dance music to brilliant effect, never compromising on the groove. Maintaining a steady flow while staying true to the roots of Chicago house and Detroit techno, Esther also draws influence from acid house and dub techno, having collected vinyls for over a decade now.
