Sjoerd Dijk a.k.a. Efdé is an Amsterdam based DJ and producer who has been moving around in the Amsterdam underground scene for a while now.
Efdé has spent the last year perfecting his sound both as a DJ as well as in the studio. His inspiration comes from the classic Chicago and Detroit house sound as well as funk, soul, disco and techno music. As you can probably tell by now his taste in music is pretty versatile and he always finds a way to reflect this in his performances.
Being no newcomer to the house scene, Efdé performs regularly in clubs around the Netherlands and Europe. He takes the stage either as a live act or he makes the dance-floors bounce with his energetic and ever so clever DJ sets. Efdé played at numerous major and very well known festivals and clubs like Voltt, Cargo, Source, Welcome to the Future, Studio 80, KaterHolzig and Trouw.
Absolute highlights for Efdé so far were opening for Loco Dice with a killer 4-hour set and performing at the legendary Awakenings Festival. So was his 8-hour marathon set at Studio going back to back with studio buddy Tom Ruijg (production duo TRFD), as well as playing together with him at the notorious Trouw New Years Day party ‘Trouwens’.
After having had earlier releases on Piekup, Blabla records and Soweso Music, Efdé now feels it is time for the next step, which also includes a new musical direction. With a truckload of fresh energy and motivation there is nothing stopping Efdé from making 2013 his definite breakthrough year.
