During next ADE:
| Liebrand is considered to be one of the pioneers in dance music and mixing. |
On the back of our recent announcements about techno pioneers Robert Hood and Juan Atkins taking part in ADE’s daytime program, we are equally delighted to announce that Ben Liebrand, the legendary Dutch producer/remixer and studio wizard who has been so influential to so many current top DJ/producers, will be interviewed by one of the many people who was inspired by his work… Armin van Buuren.
Van Buuren says that he considers Liebrand to be the best DJ in the world. Praise indeed from one of the most grounded and easy-going DJs on the circuit, and someone who has topped the DJ Mag Hot 100 poll an amazing five times in his 16 year career. Liebrand, who now lives in Canada, has provided remixes for Grace Jones, Michael Jackson, TLC, Sting and countless others. His In The Mix radio show on Veronica has been cited as a major early influence by both van Buuren and Tiësto.
The duo will also be joined by Belgian DJ/Producer Lost Frequencies (a.k.a Felix de Laet), who shot to fame following his remix of Easton Corbin's Are You With Me, which has just reached pole position in the German charts. As much as van Buuren was influenced by the style and work of Liebrand, de Laet regularly cites van Buuren as one of his biggest musical influences.
It is not the first time that van Buuren 'Q&A's' with his favorite influencers. Last year he interviewed Jean Michel Jarre at ADE Pro.
