Ben Liebrand

Ben Liebrand is considered to be one of the true pioneers in mixing and DJ-ing. A valued compliment as it is given by his colleagues and music business professionals. In 1983, long before Facebook or even the internet, Ben was developing his style in mixing with a weekly broadcast on Dutch radio. It was this show that inspired guys like Tiësto and Armin van Buuren to become DJ's as well. Ben's non-stop-mixed program, including his annual Grandmix, became the benchmark and a driving force behind the European DJ and Dance scene.
Without aiming for that result, or even being aware of his influence at the time, history shows that Ben Liebrand shaped the European Dance Business to a great extent by continuously innovating mixing techniques, whilst closely being regarded by so many colleagues.

Ben's work includes numerous official remixes for Dance artists as well as pop icons like Sting, Phil Collins, Grace Jones & Tina Turner.

Technology is just as important to Ben as the music itself, leading him to fulfil all roles in creating music. Production, Musician, Arranger, Sound Engineer as well as the necessary artwork and video to complete the projects.

"What can I say, it all started of as a hobby, and it still feels that way" Ben Liebrand
