Zaken’s Fall Mashup Pack is finally here. It features 11 Mashup’s and 1 Bonus Mash “Reload The Island”. These have been getting huge support from big names like Tiesto, Thomas Gold and Sunnery James & Ryan Marciano so check them out and have some ammunition for this weekends festivities for your sets!!!
On October 21st, Zaken and I had the opportunity to travel to Amsterdam for the famous Amsterdam Dance Event (ADE), It was a time of networking, creating and developing new relationships and linking up with good friends like Jacob van Hage, Nouvobeats and the Armada Music team. During this time I was able to witness the passion and dedication that Zaken has towards making it big in this industry. It takes more than playing a few gigs and making a few connections. Its about investing time, money and working hard to get your name out there and Zaken has done that and more.
While back at the hotel he showed me some of his new upcoming originals and how he puts together one of his mashups by using Logic. I was able to see the work and time put into it to make it match and sound just right.
The best thing Zaken did this year was take some time off from dj’ing gigs and taking time to finish a couple of original productions like “Odeon” and creating a few banger “Mashups” which have been featured on episodes of Tiesto’s Club Life “275”, “276”, “283”, “285” and “289” as well as Thomas Gold’s Fanfare.
Tiesto also supported Zaken’s Remix of his classic “Carpe Noctum” which got him airtime on Sirius XM’s Electric Area and BPM Radio.
Catch Zaken on November 24th playing along Dutch Dj/Producer Jacob van Hage at Santos Party House presented by Electric Beach. Zaken is on a mission to make a lot of noise in NYC.
