The dream of becoming a dj began at an early age for Rotterdam born Han Beukers (1966). As a youngster he listened to the soul show and mixes of Ben Liebrand on the radio. In the eighties he spent many hours listening and buying the latest new import records at Hotsound in Rotterdam where he also witnessed the birth of the house and later the trance music. During that time he regularly played at school parties under the artist name of “Studio1999”. His sales and marketing career in Telecom & ICT brought him a different path during that time.
When Ferry Corsten played the track Out of the Blue (Violin edit) at Trance Energy Han became passionate about Uplifting Trance. Throughout the years and thanks to the many (Dance & Trance) festivals, the dj booth continued to attract. In the summer of 2015 he refuled his old hobby and dream by buying a Numark DJ-set. The mixes he made as a bedroom dj were picked up by RTV Krimpenerwaard and in February of 2016 he launched a weekly radio show called Time4Trance. The fan base of this live radio show is steadily growing.
His enthusiasm for the Trance music and mixing did not remain unnoticed and in 2017 Han gets his shot at his boyhood dream with some live performances at; Grotesque, Have Faith in Trance, Reverie Events at the Tropi Trance Bar on Ibiza, Trance cafe and City Beats among others.
In recent years he was allowed to share the stage with dj’s like: Sean Tyas, Richard Durand, Misja Helsloot, Johan Gielen, Alex M.O.R.P.H. , John OCallaghan, XiJaro & Pitch, Artento Divini, Davey Asprey, Adam Seller, Philip El Sisi, KO-C, Faith Mark, Fady & Mina, Amos & Riot Night, Misja Helsloot, Marc van Gale, Swen van der Endt, Tim Verkruissen and many more …
His first track “Anthem of The Ancient Kingdom” was a collab together with FAWZY and was released on december 6th 2019 on Trancespired Recordings. Lots of uplifting music followed after that.
In the first part of 2021 the beautiful tracks Agnieszka (released on We Are Trance) and Exlunda (released on Heavens’Gate) which were two huge milestones for Han. The biggest milestone in 2021 was when the Hel:sløwed remix of his track Warriors (with Waves on Waves released on RaveUp Alley) was supported on A State of Trance #1043.
