The Housemusic adventure of dj Baba ( Martijn van Langen ) started with listening to dj Dano’s show the Grooveyard at Radio 100. The radioshow where you could win tickets for Multigroove and you could hear the latest tunes.
Martijn got infected by the dj virus at a birthday party, because there was no dj to play the music, he grabbed some cd’s and experienced the joy and satisfaction to play music for other people.
The friends at this party encouraged him to do this more often and Martijn started to buy records and practice the art of vinyl mixing.
Dj Baba can hit the decks with cd’s, usb stick or Traktor but he prefers toplay his music in a freestyle mix with oldschool, rave, early hardstyle and hardcore classics on vinyl records with 2 or 3 turntables. He will play techno, minimal or trance classics on special request or occasion.
The notorious dj duo Micha B & Baba started freestyle mixing with the hardest sounds of house at the end of 1998.
HardTime was their first concept in Amsterdam at the Club 114 and Trance Nation the future sound of trance was their following concept that launched them off to giving raves at the Hemkade48 untill 3500 people.
Their radioshow Dance2Day at Salto was a big hit and they played all around the Netherlands at events such as Dance Valley 2000 and 2001.
Multigroove and the famous Trance Buddha in Amsterdam where their regular gigs.
Multigroove is always a big influence for Martijn, this is the organisation who always supported him as a dj.
He got involved at the time Multigroove was giving events at the Roothaanhuis and ever since he played at events like No Bullshit, Hellbound, the Delicate Sound of Thunder, Haunted House, Toxic City and Ground Zero.
Martijn is now promoting his passion for house and electronic dance music, with dj sets, his events and lessons in the art of mixing.
Together with DJ Skuffa he is making tracks and mash ups in a Freestyle way under the name: Electronic Dutch Masterz.
