Need a gift for a gifted musician?
Sidney de Schepper, better known as Sidney El Sid in the producing and dj industry, couldn’t keep his eyes and hands off one of his older friend’s DJ set. From that moment on he was certain of one thing; he wanted to be a DJ. For his 16th birthday he received a dj set and was able to unleash his creativity. This hobby soon expanded through the purchase of new gadgets ect. His favourite genre was House, which was growing rapidly during his teenage years. Soon Sidney was searching for birthday parties in Alphen and surrounding areas, where he could let his skills loose.
Mike de Groot, known by his stage name Mike Midegro, fell in love with the program ‘FL Studio’ when he was 14 years old. Besides his love for producing his own music, the piano and keyboard also became a big part of his life. This can be seen in his productions. He started by producing hip-hop beats but this soon changed to various styles of House. The little boy from the municipality of Alphen learnt more and more about this profession and it quickly became his favourite hobby. Soon he was itching to show his talent and productions at clubs and party spots. Sidney and Mike have known each other since primary school and shared their love of making music. Soon they were producing and dj-ing together and a duo was born: Elsid & Midegro which later became Sidney El Sid & Mike Midegro. In the beginning they mainly focussed on Dirty House which was very popular at the time, now they prefer Progressive House.
The first bookings that they received were various birthday parties, where they could show their stuff and gauge the audience’s reaction. These parties took place in various clubs, causing the urge to DJ at a nightclub to grow.
Next, the men coined a unique event: Make it Hot. This event ensured that they performed in front of a full house. Later, Sidney El Sid & Mike Midegro performed at various other events including FreakyHouse Ridderhof, Casablanca Saint Tropez Rotterdam, FunkyVillage Stek and Get Famouz Medemblik. Along side performing at various events, student nights and birthday parties the men are working hard producing music in the studio. These beats can be heard in their sets. “We have achieved our goal but this has lead to a new goal: we want to perform on the world stage.''
