“As a child i spent all my time discovering, listening and finding music. I always knew I wanted to be involved with music. I remember discovering you could DJ; I was amazed with the fact you could play your favorite music really loud to other people , make them dance and actually make a living of it. I’m still amazed!”
With almost a decade worth of DJ experience Flip, London based DJ and producer, has within the last couple of years proven to be one of the most interesting names on todays house music scene. Born and raised in Copenhagen, Denmark, he has become one of the most well-known and respected DJs in his home country playing all aspects of house music; from deep, techy and warm to more uplifting and pumping. Holding residencies at most of Denmark’s major clubs and festivals, Flip has also hosted his own weekly radio show and clubnights.
A highly successful and recognised figure in his home country only spurred him on to seek further and wide-spread success across Europe and beyond. Ambitious and driven, the next challenge was always at the forefront of his mind and a move to Paris offered the next step in his flourishing career, before heading to the bright lights of London. Alongside his DJ’ing prowess and the release of the hugely successful “This Sound“, a track produced in collaboration with Def Jaguar, Flip quickly began to establish himself as a respected music figure in London. The track quickly reached number one on Beatport.com, making it to ‘Track of the week’ on Danish national radio, and became a major underground anthem throughout 2008. Azuli records, Pacha Ibiza and La Troya Ibiza picked up the track for their annual compilations, and at the end of 2008 Beatport awarded the track ‘Top 10 tech house track of the year’. Alongside this accolade, the track was picked up by such esteemed names as Bob Sinclair, Fedde Le Grand, Axwell, Steve Angello, Roger Sanchez, Dirty South, Laurent Garnier……to name just a few!
“This Sound” was quickly followed by an EP on a label aptly titled “Leaders of the New School”, a sub-label of Toolroom. Executed as a collaboration with Djuma Soundsystem, this once again gained outstanding feedback with playtime on Radio 1’s ‘Essential Mix’, and was by others compiled by Ministry of Sound for their “Underground 2009” compilation.
With a list of labels under his belt including Toolroom/L.O.T.N.S., Brut, Nightology, Just Deep, Lekker and performances alongside names like Tiga, Fedde Le Grand, Trentemoller, Radio Slave, DJ T, Smokin Jo and may more, residencies at some of London’s prior clubs and venues and gigs in countries all over Europe, Flip is truly a ‘Leader of the New School’.
