Oberman - 09
DJ and founder of Nous'klaer Audio.
Rotterdam has long been home to one of the world’s most vibrant and unique underground electronic music scenes. It’s here, amongst clubs, bars, and record shops that have nurtured the talents of a myriad of lauded DJs, producers and record labels, that Nous’klaer Audio founder Sjoerd Oberman cut his teeth.
Now dividing his time between a myriad of musical projects and a growing list of DJ bookings, Oberman’s rise to prominence has been shaped by a desire to foster the same feelings in others that he felt when raving with friends at teenage house parties, impromptu adolescent beach bashes in the sun-rich Zeeland province, and as a dedicated dancer in Rotterdam’s hottest and sweatiest clubs.
Oberman’s career as a DJ has not only been built on an all-encompassing passion for underground electronic music but also a signature mixing style that puts mood and melody front and center. Listen to one of his club sets, radio shows or mixes, and you’ll hear a DJ constantly searching for perfection through a fluid flow between different genres, grooves, and rhythms.
