Jensen Words by KooDoo Few decknicians in Belgium combine great technical skills with a genuine passion for different types of music. One man surely does: Jensen. The last fifteen years this man has stepped up to become a leading player in the field, as host and entrepreneur of several party concepts but foremost as deejay. Today, with a rapidly evolving electronic music scene, Jensen is still regarded as one of the country's most innovative artists. Faut le faire. Originally coming from a little village at the coast Jensen grew up with a severe passion for hip-hop. Absorbing the burgeoning sounds of American rap he relocated to Ghent where he met the city's rich night life scene. There his obsession for music moved to sounds with a 4/4 beat. It was love at first listen. Jensen started to collect and spin records, heavy influenced by house legends like Larry Levan, Ron Hardy and Mr. Fingers. Since then he encountered a lifelong need to build up a severe vinyl collection. It wasn't long before Jensen started to collaborate with like-minded souls. First he teamed up with Bugsy for a long-lasting partnership. Their spinning sessions on four decks became legendary at the What's Cookin' soirees, a house concept both artists had set up together with JeanJack. As a result Jensen was asked to take up a residency at Decadance. This event not only marked the beginning of a ten year stay at Ghent's most notorious venue, it also established his position as one of the fastest rising artists in the scene. Since then Jensen fascinated audiences as a host and deejay of several exquisite house gatherings in the city. At the same time he became a frequently asked guest at clubs like Krush Club, H20, Silo and Baar. Today Jensen is active on various fronts. He is co-hosting the We Play House parties in Decadance, alongside label boss Red D. The little spare time that is left he is spending in the studio, where he is taking his first steps in producing. Whether he is playing in the backyard of a friend's house or in a club for hundreds of greedy dancers, Jensen's sets are always invariably exhilarating and extraordinarily varied. Touched by every piece of music, from funk and soul to house and techno, the man's record bag holds decades of dance music. It makes Jensen unique as a deejay and a person.
