About the author
A bi-weekly Monday mixtape from an Amsterdam-based DJ to kick-start your new week. Archive here.
Verboden Vruchten (Dutch for Forbidden Fruits, because he’s not afraid to play some ‘forbidden’ guilty pleasure tracks throughout his sets) is Jan van Hövell from Amsterdam. Coming from a music career in the club scene of Utrecht he’s now making noise at loads of private parties in and around The Dam.
… his favorite soul, house and deephouse tracks from his repertoire by the likes of Biggie, Aeroplane, Drake and Daft Punk.
He was heavily influenced by Dimitri From Paris, PillowTalk, Aeroplane, The Magician, Wolf+Lamb, Vic Crezée, Vriendje van Ferry, Ben Liebrand, Todd Terje, Soul Clap, Masters at Work, DJ Format and Little Louie Vega. His mixtape is a compilation of tracks he fully made his own by selecting his favorite soul, house and deephouse tracks from his repertoire by the likes of Biggie, Aeroplane, Drake and Daft Punk. Perfect for this grey Monday. Enjoy!
