During this time, the Pharcyde, Krs One, A Tribe Called Quest and Grand Puba were the sounds that the young Dj Thelonious played at home. Greedy for new music he soon discovered the Eclectic Sound of Djs like Gilles Peterson, Coldcut and Jazzanova.
At the end of the nineties Dj Thelonious made his Dj debut in the bar of one of Rotterdam’s most flegendary clubs called Nighttown. Here he learned how to play exclectic sets and to keep the difeerent and diverse public satisfied and hungry for more. A few years later his unique surprising and soulful dj sets made him one of the permanent fixtures of the Dutch Dj scène and got him to play on festivals like Lowlands, North Sea Jazz and Pitch.

Whether it s a bangin dancefloor dj set or a lounge set it s quality all over.
