» Miss Monica
DJ Miss Monica was born on the 12th of March 1971 in Rotterdam, the Netherlands. Growing up in the biggest harbour city of the world, she started to go out in the house-scene in 1989 and discovered something that would change her life... HOUSE-MUSIC!!! She started DJ’ing in 1992. Thanks to her musical talent, she learned very fast. In 1993 she was asked to become a resident DJ at Nighttown (one of the finest dance clubs in the Netherlands at that time, cap. 2000). In 1994 – 1998 she got her own club-night, every first Saturday of the month at Nighttown, which was a huge success and she made the party people go crazy! She was asked to perform at different clubs and parties all over the Netherlands and her DJ-career was getting bigger and bigger. In 1996 she decided to stop working as a medical analyst at a hospital laboratory, to become a professional DJ.

In 1996 she became one of the most popular DJ's in the Netherlands (3 - 5 performances a week), thanks to her excellent DJ performances (with very fine mixing skills!) and her mixed compilation CD's (Check Discography on the website for more details). She performed at the most respected clubs, parties and festivals in the Netherlands like: Nighttown, RoXY. It, Waakzaamheid, Asta, Mazzo, Maastheater, Escape, Paard, etc and the popular parties like M.T.C., Lunapark, Beachbop, MAW parties, Chesterfield party, Veronica's Mega Music Dance Experience (20,000 people), Dance Valley Festival (25,000 people) and Extrema (parties and festivals). At the Fast Forward Dance Parade 1998 (300,000 people), her own truck drew all the attention. She also performed for radio shows such as, Radio 538 “van Diepen's Dance Department” , Radio Veronica and local radio shows.

As a result of her success in the Netherlands she got international recognition and has performed at clubs and parties all over the world like: France (Including performances at Club Rex and Club Queen in Paris), Ibiza (Pacha), Belgium (Café D'Anvers), Switzerland (Mad), Turkey (Club 2019), Israel (Haoman17), Spain, Mallorca, Curaçao (Mambo Beach), Germany and so on.

Thank to her excellent performances and skills, she has spinned the wheels with national and international DJ's such as Ronald Molendijk, Mark van Dale, DJ Jean, Michel de Hey, DJ Remy, Erick E, 100% Isis, Miss Djax, Laurent Garnier, Mr. C, DJ Djulz, Paul van Dijk, Jack de Marseille, Sander Kleinenberg, Eddy de Clercq (EDC), DJ Roog, etc, etc.

In 1997 – 1998 she got a second resident club-night at Nighttown on Wednesday called Fresh Up. Funky grooves and solid sounds to enjoy the party people. The party people responded enthusiastically to Fresh Up.

In July 1998 the unexpected happened. She became very ill with Mononucleosis, and even worse, she was diagnosed CFS (Chronic Fatigue Syndrome). Because of this very serious illness she was not able to perform as a DJ for 5 years. In July 2003 she miraculously recovered from CFS and can live a normal life again.

Miss Monica started her comeback tour in February 2004. The kick off was at the award winning club (Best Club) Club Las Palmas in Rotterdam. All other respected clubs/parties followed: Asta in Den Haag, Mainstage (Chemistry) in Amsterdam, Global Kitchen by FCA Music at Winkel van Sinkel in Utrecht, De Rechter in Eindhoven and many more. In the summer of 2004 she also performed successfully at Extrema Outdoor Festival and Dance Valley Festival. (Check Photobook on her website for all pictures and Video for great videos of her DJ-sets). Since February 2004 she has resident club nights at Club Las Palmas in Rotterdam and Asta in Den Haag.

In 2004 she got a lot of media attention (check Media on the website for more details), and she was a guest DJ and performing live mixed DJ-sets at several national radio shows: Radio 538, ID&T Radio, 3FM Radio and Fresh FM Radio.

In October 2004 Miss M. was rewarded with the 58th place in the DJ Top 100 at the Dutch DJ Awards, being the 2nd ranked female DJ in this Top 100.

In March 2005 Miss M. won a “Gouden Kabouter” Award, the incredibly unofficial annual underground in-crowd oscar for the club scene, as Hero of the Year. A big reward for her fantastic comeback tour in 2004.

In 2005 she is having 2 – 3 performances a week, and playing at respected clubs and parties etc like Club Las Palmas in Rotterdam, Award winning (Best New Club) Club Poema in Utrecht, De Rechter in Eindhoven, Global Kitchen at Winkel van Sinkel in Utrecht, Club Now&Wow in Rotterdam, Asta in Den Haag, etc, etc.......

DJ Miss Monica doesn't limit herself to one style of music!!! Her style is from club / tech / groovy / tribal / latino / pumping / energetic house sounds to funky / rhythmic / energetic / pumping techno sounds. Because when she is there, the party is there!!! It's fascinating to see DJ Miss Monica behind the decks and to feel the energy, when listening to her. Her DJ-sets are always full-filling for the party people, and 300% ENTERTAINMENT!!!

Miss M. has started producing in December 2004. She is working on her own productions every week in her studio. In April 2005 her first record deal/contract is a fact. Producer and label owner Hertz from Sweden has signed and remixed the first record of DJ Miss Monica, for his label Q-records. The record DJ Miss Monica - Bossamonica (Q-record 018) will be released in the beginning of July 2005.
