Hertz & Vibes
Hertz & Vibes is a formation of two creative guys whose real names are Patrick Hertgers and Dirk-Jan Wessels. Both grown up in the east of the Netherlands. They both played various classical instruments in their childhood like organ, piano, guitar and even the saucepans in their mother's kitchen. In the autumn of 2005 they both moved to Rotterdam to start their studies. But it also gave them lots of inspiration for the sound they are playing nowadays. The electronic music adventure just started.
Their dj-sets can not be described as one sound, it's a solid mix of deep/techy house, minimal and techno driven by grooving basslines and funky percussion rhythms.
In 2007 Hertz & Vibes reached the finals of the Amsterdam based TWSTD dj-contest at the famous dutch club 'De Melkweg'. Every year, the Dommelsch TWSTd DJ Contest involves 160 promising new DJ's who go head to head for more than 80 rounds. Reaching the finals in Hollands biggest and most respected dj-contest was again a confirmation for Hertz & Vibes to go on with their musical career.
In december 2007 they got the opportunity to host their own clubnight called 'Diepgang' at the Catwalk in Rotterdam. From the beginning it was a huge succes which resolved in a residency at this club untill February 2011. They invited names like Adam Beyer, Alan Fitzpatrick, Cari Lekebusch, Deetron, Joris Voorn, Joel Mull, Paul Ritch and Secret Cinema. Artists who were a great inspiration for Hertz & Vibes over the last years.The duo also came under the attention of Michel de Hey, and Hertz & Vibes became residents of the Hey! parties @ Catwalk. During this period they played next to Josh Wink, Paul Kalkbrenner Joseph Capriati, Sneak, 2000andOne and Alex Celler.
Besides their residency in Catwalk Rotterdam Hertz & Vibes have been playing in venues like Studio80, Maassilo, Ahoy, Off Corso, Melkweg, Poema, FFWD Dance Parade, Free Your Mind Festival etc. and countries like Turkey, Belgium, Spain, Poland and Croatia.
Nowadays Hertz & Vibes are focusing on their musical productions. Together with dj and producer Arthur Leicher they started their own label, Moments Music. So stay tuned, because there is much more to come!
