Even though we can’t remember the last time we sent anybody a letter in the post we have to admit that we might not be where we are today without that first form of long distance communication. Nowadays it seems the only people who send stuff in the mail is your great aunt who’s never “forgotten a birthday in your life” and the bank reminding you how much money you spunked that year. Hey maybe it’s different in the Netherlands as Post NL have decided to honour DJ Mag’s top five DJs by putting their faces on stamps.

The portraits of HardwellAfrojack, Armin Van Buuren, Dash Berlin and Tiësto, will be glammed up and donning the special collection of stamps which will be available to the public October 6th. They will be individually presented the stamps on the opening day of ADE on October 15th by the PostNL CEO, Herna Verhagen, who said “PostNL is the heart of society, so we like to bring stamps that meet everyone’s perceptions – we are proud that we can honour these heroes in dance!”

Grahame Farmer

Grahame Farmer’s love affair with electronic music goes back to the mid-90s when he first began to venture into the UK’s beloved rave culture, finding himself interlaced with some of the country’s most seminal club spaces. A trip to dance music’s anointed holy ground of Ibiza in 1997 then cemented his sense of purpose and laid the foundations for what was to come over the next few decades of his marriage to the music industry.
