When the nightlights lure you in and a roaring bassline sets your pulse racing, there’s nothing left to do but to answer that call. And so, that’s what Dutch DJ and producer Anastas Kapogiannis did. Clocking up an average 100 gigs a year under his DJ Taz moniker, he lives and breathes all that is electronic dance music.
Inspired by his father, who was a professional drummer, it didn’t take long for Taz to be caught by the music bug. Switching the drum kit for a pair of DJ decks at the age of 10 might have been the best decision he’s ever made though. Perfecting his DJ skills and learning all the ropes of music technology, it’s no wonder that he wanted to take his hobby to a professional level. With a daytime job at a music store in Rotterdam – selling gear to big names like Nicky Romero, Afrojack and Mr. Probz, and weekend duty in clubs all across the country, it’s safe to say that Taz is truly living the dream of many. And he does it well.
