2000 and One

Vision and versatility - the DNA that defines 2000 and One as an artist. Whether he’s performing for 40,000 housecrowds, 2500 techno lovers or 400 party people at an intimate, underground techno/ house club, he’ll always cook the dancefloor. 2000 And One (aka Dylan Hermelijn) has been on the forefront of electronic dance music since the late eighties. His pioneering vision across more than two decades of music genres, now ranks him as one the most versatile, in-demand international artists, commanding weekly performances on the house, techno and techhouse global club and festival circuits. Not only recognised as a magnet for the clubbing crowds, 2000 and One is also credited for championing the sounds of Amsterdam’s new school DJ and Producer generation and propelling the scene’s visibility into the international club headlights. Based in Amsterdam, his involvement with six of the city’s finest techno, techhouse and house labels – 100% Pure, Remote Area, Area Remote, Intacto (with Shinedoe), Bitten and Bangbang! (with Sandy Hüner) has offered a framework for the new generation of producers to hit the world stage. Collectively these labels have offered a staggering amount of underground dance anthems and it ’s therefore no surprise that he’s been hailed as the inspiration for Amsterdam’s new sound generation, as well as the glue that binds it. Influenced by a hiphop background, it all began in the late eighties, when heavily infected by the acid house bug he produced his first record at 17 under his moniker 2000 And One. A passion for musical diversity saw him release across other genres such as ambient & drum n bass before he became one of the first successful Dutch technoproducers, as well as one of the first in this genre to perform live. In 1993 he launched 100% Pure Records with schoolmate and music partner in crime Sandy Hüner.Now heading up the label solo, it is internationally recognized as Amsterdam’s longest running techhouse imprint and its foundations have paved the way for the success of his other labels. In 2005, his epic stomper Adonai Elohim (2005) caught the eye of technofreaks around the globe. Then Tropical Melons (2006) became a massive festival hit, as well as Microfun
