Jape du Marie


Real Name:
Jaap de Koeijer

Eindhoven, Netherlands

JDM touched his first record in 1999 and started playing Drum ‘n Bass & Nu Skool Breakz. After some years Jaap started to play more progressive styles. He fell in love with artists like Eric Prydz and Remy. He organized and played at known parties all around the Netherlands and he is a wellknown face in the underground dance scene. He played extensively throughout the Netherlands at renowned clubs & festivals. He also played in European countries like Lithuania & Belgium.

In 2007 J. met Maarten de Jong and they produced a track together and find a company to release it. Jaap came in with an idea which resulted in "Outsider". The track was immediately signed to Oxygen Recordings; a sublabel of Spinnin Records. "Outsider" combines a perfectly built dance-floor bottom-end with some spot-on effects and minimal, while Maarten’s edit is more punchy and extends the track more to tech- trance. "Outsider" has support by Ferry Corsten, Sander van Doorn, Armin van Buuren, Ronski Speed and has been played at Trance Energy 2008.

In 2009 Jape started to play Psytrance, Fullon & Goa and now he is really where he should be. His passion of old trance (1990 till 1995) is the perfect combination with psy and full-on and offcourse Oldschool Goa Acid Trance music.

Jape is organizing & performing at Goa Parties and he started Global Aura with K. v. Laanen. He is resident DJ at all Global Aura events. At the 7th of May of 2011 he launched his first goa release at his new sublabel Flatlife Psy Global and his future is settled in the Goa Psy Trance scene !!
