On Saturday the 17th of January 2009 Intuition will kick off a new year full of spectacular events. Not long ago The Westerunie featured the jam-packed and exhilarating Menno Solo event, reactions about the venue were so enthusiastic that the Intuition Winter Event will be hosted there too. Following a sold out edition of Intuition at the Amsterdam Dance Event, Intuition Invites Above & Beyond at the Sand and the ever so lovely Intuition Summer Festival, the Winter Event at Westerunie will exhibit the musical artillery of Jon O’Bir (Vandit), Arnej (Intuition / Armada) and Mr. Intuition himself: Menno de Jong.
Jon O’Bir flies under the flag of Paul van Dyk’s legendary Vandit imprint in combination with running his very own Conspiracy Recordings. After winning a Godskitchen DJ contest many years ago he has gained respect from many clubbers and colleagues through his energetic and perfectionist performances. His career has led him to open and close for the likes of Sasha, Tiësto and Paul van Dyk, resulting in a busier DJ-schedule than many his age.
September 2008 saw the release of his debut album beautifully named “From Within”, which got top notch reviews in all dance media, as well as support from every name in the scene. Jon O’Bir is a crowd-pleaser in heart and veins, so get ready for an exhilarating DJ set at the Intuition Winter Festival!
Also most welcome in the line-up is Canadian top producer Arnej. With excellent releases on labels such as Armada Music, Black Hole and Intuition Recordings the past year has resulted in Arnej being mentioned in DJ Mag as Armin van Buuren’s favourite producer of the past year. He also grabbed the “Best New Face Of 2008” title at the annual British Trance Awards.
With the perfect non-stop blasting blend of progressive, house and deep trance Arnej is guaranteed to rock the dance floor at the Intuition Winter Festival.
Finally Intuition Recordings main man Menno de Jong will be gracing the decks to play for his home crowd. Highly acclaimed as one of the fastest growing talents in the dance scene, his detailed productions and energetic performances have lead to a most welcome worldwide appreciation, as well as a hectic touring schedule. This is reflected by his strong rise in the DJ Mag Top 100 of 2008, in which he moved up 14 places from #62 to #48! With the immense amount of competition in the poll this can be seen as a strong feat, and with his university degree now in the pocket the next year will orbit his main passion in life: Trance.
