Bart van Rijn joins the Spotlight Mix series


The Netherlands has long been renowned as a very special place when it comes to producing electronic music talent. Bart van Rijn is one such individual.

A native of The Hague, van Rijn is best known as the resident of the city’s STUG events. A man who’s just as capable in the DJ booth as he is in the studio. Boasting a warm, soulful and always captivating sound, van Rijn’s versatility can be measured by the acts he’s played alongside. From international acts such as Radio Slave, Luke Slater and Carl Craig to local talents such as Patrice Baumel, Nuno dos Santos and Joris Voorn, van Rijn has truly chopped it up alongside some of electronic music’s foremost names.

In 2018, Bart embarked on arguably his biggest solo project to date: STUG Music. Never one to approach a project in half-measures, the label sprang into action courtesy of an unexpectedly eclectic cast of guests. A mini-album and 2 EPs featuring the work of Nikola Gala, Gerd, Perel, Rhadow, Kris Wadsworth, Carlos Nilmmns, Jamie Trench, Chocky, Kiwi, Chambray and a host of others.

From dancefloor orientated house and techno to indie-influenced electronic music, both van Rijn and the label has already won support from Laurent Garnier, John Digweed, Sasha, Black Madonna, Jimpster, Joris Voorn, Danny Tenaglia, Radio Slave and Groove Armada. An individual who simply refuses to stand still, Bart van Rijn is a name we’re sure you’ll be hearing much more from in 2019.

Today, we welcome him on the Spotlight Mix and download it here.

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.
