Bart Skils

Drumcode — Amsterdam/The Netherlands
worldwide (except NL and B) exclusive booking

Always one step ahead of the game, Bart Skils has estab­lished him­self as one of Hol­land’s most respected and highly demanded techno dj’s. His dj sets are cheered by techno lovers as extremely for­ward think­ing and musi­cally well con­structed. His releases and remixes for Drum­code, 100% Pure, Tronic, Break New Soil, Cocoon and Rejected are inter­na­tion­ally rated as some of the most cut­ting edge dance tracks to come out of Hol­land in recent years. His rep­u­ta­tion for tight pro­duc­tions gave him oppor­tu­ni­ties to work and remix artists and friends like Joris Voorn, Adam Beyer, Chris­t­ian Smith, Nicole Moud­aber, Kaiserdisco and Kollek­tiv Turm­strasse. With Anton Pieete he also forms the acclaimed techno alliance Dis­trict One. As one of the main play­ers on Ams­ter­dam’s renowned scene, their per­cus­sive take on techno and house music are well loved by many.

Skils’ long run­ning Voltt nights at Par­adiso have proven piv­otal in bring­ing Amsterdam’s New School gen­er­a­tion together. Dur­ing the late nineties Skils’ undi­vided ded­i­ca­tion to techno already landed him a res­i­den­tial spot at the infa­mous Mazzo venue. This was where he pro­moted his first techno fuelled nights, con­sis­tently stag­ing the most futur­is­tic in four to the floor beats. Many techno pio­neers made their first Dutch appear­ances at these leg­endary nights and Voltt is still widely regarded as one of the lead­ing events in Amsterdam’s inter­na­tion­ally acclaimed club scene. His mas­sive out­door fes­ti­val “Voltt Loves Sum­mer” is praised by many in the Dutch scene as an absolute high­light of the year; over 15.000 party peo­ple attend this yearly hap­pen­ing on an old ship­yard in Amsterdam!

With his res­i­dency at his own events, gigs all over Europe and many releases and remixes to be played out on the dance­floor, Skils’ dj star has been ris­ing steadily and is shin­ing bright. Per­sis­tently rock­ing venues and fes­ti­val sites, he has fur­ther under­lined his posi­tion as one of the country’s most reli­able and autho­r­a­tive dj’s. His long last­ing expe­ri­ence as a dj and his abil­ity to move effort­lessly from deep house to bang­ing techno make Skils a sure-fire crowd­mover at any given party.
