Menno de Jong
Menno de Jong is an international DJ Producer with a massive global following, having completed extensive tours across each continent performing at the worlds best super clubs, as well as appearing at the key dance music festivals such as Dancevalley, Global Gathering, Creamfields, Tomorrowland and Nature One to name just a few.
Known for his versatile hi-energy DJ sets, and after being responsible for the legendary Intuition Recordings label and classic Trance tracks such as 'Guanxi', 'Tundra' and 'Spirit' - following on from 2011's epic 'Place In The Sun' and club anthem 'Turtle Paradise', Menno hits the new year in style with the announcement of his forthcoming debut artist album and worldwide album tour.
Menno de Jong is primarily known as a DJ with an international following, though he is also an accomplished producer and the founder of Intuition Recordings. Based in Amsterdam, The Netherlands, de Jong was born on March 17, 1984, in Den Helder and was interested in music - classical as well as modern - at a young age.
While he took up DJing as a teenager, he first established himself as a producer with the release of "Guanxi" on the British label Anjunabeats in 2004. Later that year, he released a few additional productions: "Second Thoughts" as Sayla on Dedicated Holland, "Watermark" as Halcyon on Captured Music, and "Millionfold" as Myth on Remark Records. The success of these initial productions inspired de Jong to found his own label, Intuition Recordings. Intuition made its debut in 2005, and the second release on the label was de Jong's own "Tundra." Like "Guanxi" and "Second Thoughts" before it, "Tundra" proved popular within the trance community and was championed by many of the style's leading DJs, including Tiesto and Armin van Buuren. Successive releases such as "Spirit", "Last Light Tonight" and "Better World" followed, as did numerous remixes, yet in accordance with his rising profile, de Jong began to busy himself primarily as a DJ. He went on to perform at superclubs all over the world as well as at dance music festivals such as Nature One, Global Gathering and Creamfields.
In 2007 he released his first official mix CD, Intuition Sessions: South Africa, which showcased his label. In 2010 the second volume themed Rio de Janeiro was released, showcasing the broad style of trance & progressive heard in his DJ sets.
2011 sees Menno de Jong moving back to songwriting and studio work, returning to the production front with high energy tracks such as "Turtle Paradise", "Place In The Sun" featuring the vocals of Ellie Lawson and the more laid back "Stardust".
