Esther DuijnProxima Centauri | Another Earth | Lens Larque
Esther Duijn’s sound is characterised by the legacy of techno and (acid) house music. Growing up in The Netherlands shaped Esther’s music as she absorbed the rich Dutch scene of the time.
Having released on labels like Coincidence Records, Fred P’s Soul People Music, German Housewax and Portuguese Exquisite Music, solo and also with her long-time production partner Steady Douglas as "Duijn & Douglas", Duijn has shown her skill as a producer and a DJ, with over 25 (vinyl) releases under her belt.
This has not gone unnoticed by the scene, earning her regular DJ slots at the mighty Tresor in Berlin and appearances at De School, UNTER NYC, Pornceptual, Freerotation Festival, Lantern Beijing, Gare Porto, Gegen (KitKatClub), Sisyphos, Bushwick A/V, Panoramabar and Trouw, a Resident Advisor tour in Australia etc.
Esther loves to mix the old, the new, the rare, the deep and the raw parts of electronic dance music to brilliant effect, never compromising on the groove. Maintaining a steady flow while staying true to the roots of Chicago house and Detroit techno. Esther also draws influence from acid house & techno, ghettotech, electro, ebm, disco and dub techno, having collected vinyls for over a decade now.
Duijn cites her influences as Clone Records Rotterdam, Bunker Records Den Haag, Tresor Records, Delta Funktionen, Daniel Bell, G-Man, The Mover, Soulphiction, Stingray, Anthony Rother, G Flame (The Advent) and Steve Rachmad amongst others.
