DJ Hell and Mijk van Dijk remixed “Phobia” by Phobia. This was one of the very first tracks to influence trance producers and it still sounds as fresh today as it did when first released in ’91 on Cyclotron / Rising High Records.
Over 5 years after their “Härter”-Release on Confused Records, Mijk created a bass-heavy production with long-term buddy Namito, who is just recently going through the roof with his fresh new “Joujou-EP” on Kling Klong Records.
To kick off 2007 in style Mijk’s first release in this year will be an EP together with Berlin DJ legend DJ Rok on Gigolo Records #205, featuring their original plus remixes by both Rok & Mijk.
Mijk created a new 2-track 12″ called “Denn es ist wie es ist, weil Du bist wie Du bist” (German for: “Cause it is what it is, since you are the way you are”). It’s out now on BluFin-Records from Cologne. The fat vinyl mastering has been provided by Martin Eyerer.
Dutch Web Magazine Laptoprockers did an interview with Mijk about his production work and current projects. In English language.
DJ Hell and Mijk van Dijk have been producing together already back in 1994 on the tracks “Herz” and “Hot On The Heels Of Love” for Hell’s debut album “Geteert & Gefedert“. Now they stick their heads together in the studio again and here’s the first result: a remix for “I Go Hard, I Go […]

After a gig in Stuttgart, Mijk went to the studio together with Kling Klong boss Martin Eyerer for 2 days. On the first day, they worked with Cubase on “Closer”. The phat bass line is provided by a real Minimoog synth tweaked by Mijk.
Superstition Records from Hamburg is celebrating their 10 years anniversary in grand style. Label head Tobias Lampe asked Mijk van Dijk to do a mix CD in a similar fashion like his track “Super 100” of the 100th release compilation which was constructed only out of samples of the first 99 releases.
Today I gave a workshop at the DJ School G. Martell in Mexico-City together with my friend DJ Klang. I explained my philosophy of DJ and production work and also showed how to quickly mash-up some randomly chosen traditional Mexican music with a modern dance beat. Later I had the honour to give a print of […]
Here’s an interview in German language for MEMI Musicbase. Mijk talks frankly about his new album Everyground, his musical origins and how he works in his studio, all in German language.
