Dance Home Limburgs Dagblad

First official interview I ever had with a house DJ. Want to know who that was?

In 1996 I worked at the provincial newspaper and they needed a music journalist who was interested in electronic music. The at that point most famous festival of the Netherlands, Pinkpop, was going to host a dance-area for the first time ever. And I was the chosen one – I got to go.

My editor decided that, before the review of the festival itself, it would be nice if I would interview one of two Dutch DJs who would hit that stage. So I took the train and looked up DJ Angelo D’Onorio in his house at the Bilderdijkkade in Amsterdam. I was pretty intimidated by this attractive young man. Why? Because as I know now, Angelo is one of the kindest en most gentle men ever.


How do I know? Well, twenty years later we met again. Not just like that; somehow our worlds seem te be intwined, so at significant moments we meet again. I have always not only been a fan of Angelo’s personality but a huge lover of his typical Angelo-sound.

So, a few weeks ago, he made this girl very happy by saying the words that he’t totally back in the studio again, producing new tracks, yes, with that typical warm Angelo-sound. Can’t wait!

Included for starters – in Dutch – the newspaper interview of Marcelineke with Angelo D’Onorio that led to our first meeting.
