Although she’d probably never say it herself, Sandrien truly is one of Amsterdam’s finest techno DJ’s. As she enters her fourth consecutive year as resident at TrouwAmsterdam - an icon of the city’s nightlife - she has grown from local favourite into international ambassador for the prolific and globally appealing club. Still firmly rooted in her hometown scene and a frequent guest artist at events around The Netherlands, her reach now extends well beyond the Dutch border. 

Sandrien took her first career steps in the late 1990’s. She began to DJ at a score of local parties throughout Amsterdam, both solo and with friend and longstanding DJ-partner Carlos Valdes. The rest of the Netherlands soon followed: in increasing numbers Sandrien played intimate venues like Stubnitz, Doornroosje, Studio 80 and large events like Awakenings (Festival), Dance Valley, Innercity and Lowlands. At the infamous and now deceased Club 11 she and Carlos ran a notable night together called ‘MAD2’. Around 2008 Sandrien first put her hand to music production and, next to releasing on Shinedoe’s Intacto Records, also began performing her material live. Confident of her abilities, Trouw asked her in 2010 to launch and host Imprint: her own monthly underground techno night. Now, a few years down the road, their combined efforts have turned Imprint into a well-known brand that successfully attracts a broad and open-minded audience.

Sandrien’s prolonged residency at Trouw is an undeniable affirmation of her talent and versatility. She is able to almost instantly get a cold crowd in the right mood and has proven on numerous occasions that she excels at both short, intense sets and long, building ones. In other words: few that have seen Sandrien play will doubt her strength at turning any night into a special one. Her extensive list of past gigs is a testament to that fact: it includes Trouw, Berghain, Nachtdigital, Free Your Mind Festival, 5 Days Off, Concrete and many more.

In line with her growing profile and ambition, Sandrien has been spending a lot of her time in the studio again. This has resulted in a wonderful EP on BALANS, dubbed “Haters”. Containing two originals and a remix by close friend Marcel Fengler, “Haters” is a fine hint towards the future: Sandrien has already set the gears for a number of new and exciting releases in motion.

With Trouw’s procurement of a 24-hour license, the chances of Sandrien every now and then shedding the loving confines of her residency, seem all the more likely. At the same time her position as an established international techno DJ is set to further solidify as she is eager to add more countries to her travel list; one that already includes Japan, Sweden, Switzerland, Spain, Italy, Croatia and Germany. The fact that she brings fourteen years of performing experience to the table and honestly doesn’t get all the fuss about the techno scene arguably being a “men’s world”, only add to that prospect.
