No matter if they were remixes released by Black Hole Recordings, singles on Discover Dark, or private remakes of well known tracks, the works of CK grab attention of both regular listeners and A-list DJs. Cristian’s tracks got played by the most known artists in music industry (e.g. Armin Van Buuren, Judge Jules, David Guetta, Mark Sherry, Marcel Woods, John O’Callaghan, Simon Patterson, Matt Darey, John Gibbons, Paul Webster, Bryan Kearney, John Askew, Indecent Noise, Heatbeat, Sneijder, Scot Project, Ernesto & Bastian, Mr. Sam to name, but a few.).

Among the hundreds of artists it is really hard to find someone as distinctive in style or technique of playing as Cristian. 4 CDJs performances allow him to show his maximum involvement and professional skills, yet combining various musical genres with characteristic sounds from CK brand makes these shows unique. Poznań based Ketelaars always tries to reach over the standards and norms in his field by adding unexpected and unique elements in electronic dance music. Improvisation during the sets, live mash-ups, sampling, loops or even scratching, together with an unusual crowd contact filled with energy and commitment, are truly memorable events. In the repertoire of Cristian Ketelaars we can find special private tracks and works, especially his authorship, that do not appear in any other DJ’s cd wallet. All these elements of his sets stand out significantly from the rest of musical environment.
It’s very difficult for polish trance artists to gain recognition and fame required for traveling around the world. Party promoters from Argentina, Ireland, UK, Czech Republic, Slovakia, Italy and Germany showed that they can see potential in this young producer by giving him the chance to play in many different places, ranging from small clubs to great festivals, open airs and massive events alongside many A-list DJs. Countless appearances in clubs all over Poland, hundreds of satisfied clubbers and thousands of CDs given away during the performances provide a huge commitment and passion given by Cristian to everything he does.
