Jan Vervloet has been in the forefront of the Belgian dance music scene for almost 10 years, but it all started much earlier … in the seventies !
Fooling around with daddy’s records and tapes at the age of 5 is the beginning of
a successful career. Buying a Commodore Amiga computer and spinning at local
parties is the second step.
After he graduates as an accountant he follows his heart and starts to work in a DJ shop
in Mechelen. Meanwhile he spends every second of his spare time in his little room
where his Amiga computer and Roland W-30 Workstation do the talking.
The first “Jan Vervloet” productions are born !
1992 is the real breakthrough year : doing DJ gigs in almost every well-known
club in Belgium and releasing his first record (Bis-Art : “Wrong Is Right”).
The first Top 10 record comes already a year later ! Thunderball’s “Bonzai Channel
One” is the biggest dancetrack of 1993. Result : live performances and DJ-gigs in
Belgium, Germany and Holland.
With the money he earns as a DJ he builds up a nice home-studio that becomes
his second home. Between 1994 and 1996 he releases more than 25 records
under different project names such as : Jopan, Protect System, Zone 1,
Thunderball, The Oblique … the list is endless !
To separate the commercial tracks and the more “underground” releases he uses
the pseudonym “D.-Jay Lux” for his techno stuff. With the lux-trax series he
receives international recognition in technoland (one of the “D.-Jay Lux” tracks
was even selected by Carl Cox for his F.A.C.T. compilation).
As “D.-Jay Lux” he even produces 8 tracks for Marco Bailey’s debut
album “Global Warning”.
