Folker Zwart is an established name in the Amsterdam techno scene. His love for electronic music came up in the late 90’s and as a talented and ambitious techno DJ/Producer he quickly rose to fame. In 2010 he started the famous Schwung parties and since that moment a new hype in the Amsterdam techno scene was born. Folker released his music on solid techno labels like Sleaze, Credo, Focus, and Different Is Different Records.
Folker’s sound is characterized by strong swinging basslines, eclectic tones as well as melodic and hypnotic parts. With over a decade of experience, he knows what it takes to frenzy the audience by creating a floating and rolling beat that releases lots of energy. His sets are always tuned to feel like he is telling a story: “When the sum of two or more tracks mixed up together is bigger than the parts, that’s the art of mixing”.
Folker has performed all over the world and recent highlights include a tour in Brazil, gigs in Berlin’s legendary techno club Tresor, Amsterdam’s Paradiso, Doornroosje and a performance at Dance Valley. The combination of organizing top notch parties, being an outstanding DJ and producer as well as a talent coach at DJ School Amsterdam makes him all-round expert and one of the rising stars in Amsterdam!
