Dj Neonglass made his first steps in mixing on age 14 (1977),before that he was a talking Dj (compared with a "radio Dj"as many Djs where in that days) He was working with some friends every friday evening on a Drive-inn disco, called Disco Skylab in a youth centre called: Openluchtschool” (O.L.S, in The Hague.
They also had an illegal F.M Radio stations called; Skylab Radio, Skyline Radio,Tempo Radio; Then he saw in a local disco the Dj mix two records together. Fortunately one of his friends knew more about mixing.He started mixing with 2 MARANTZ record players with pitch-control.
Inspired by his discovery,he began to create customised pause button mixes on his big reeel taperecorder (later cassette) as he realised that certain records could be made more suitable for the dance floor, if they wen given a slight twist of extension. At the age of 16 he was asked to play at several Clubs as a guest Dj. Mixing was in that time very special and also all Clubs had "talking Dj's" in that time.
One of his friends he worked in the Drive-inn Disco with is now known as Atlantic Ocean a.k.a Dj Lex van Coeverden (World Hit Single Waterfall & Waterfall 2009).
In 1984 he stopped mixing, so he had time to found his own Neonsign- factory.
After 24 years not being mixing and Dj-ing, he took some Mixing lessons in youthcentre BAZART also located on the grounds of the former O.L.S, the place where it in 1977 all began. When he started his Mixing lessons,he noticed that there was a lot of changed in the DJ equipment. He decided to quit mixing with vinyl and go for the new technological tools now like mixing with 2 CD players with pitchcontrol.
Nowerday's he's a Resident Dj @ several radio stations. All his Dj-Sets, are broadcasted for a growing network of radio stations in the U.S.A (L.A & N.Y), & worldwide.
