Jaap's parents failed miserably at one thing, music. Years and years exposed to horrifying (Dutch language) music, poor Jaap discovers electronic music years later. As of then, Jaap Ligthart who headlines Connected at Privi on 9 February found his passion. He listened to sets, mix cd's and radio recordings of Tiësto, Carl Cox, Sven Väth, Sasha, John Digweed, everything he could get his hands on. Not much later he started buying vinyl, and this time no vinyl with Dutch music.
Nowadays the world is getting to know his music. For example via guest mixes in numerous broadcast on Radio 538 (the number 1 radio station in The Netherlands), guest mixes in Dennis Ruyers Dance Department, Tiësto's Club Life and via numerous gigs across the world including The Netherlands, Mauritius, Germany and Spain (Ibiza).
His productions (original tracks, remixes, bootlegs) are played lots of times by the world's big-time DJs. Artists like Richie Hawtin, Sasha, John Digweed, Tiësto, Hernan Cattaneo, Dave Seaman and Jody Wisternoff (Way Out West) are playing Jaaps productions over and over again and are dying to play his new stuff every time. The styles/genres that Jaap plays varies every gig, depending on the gig and crowd. Sometimes he plays very deep deep house and minimal, other times he treats the crowd to a more uplifting or raw sounding set. It all depends on the evening...
