Esther Duijn’s sound is characterised by the legacy of techno and (acid) house music. Growing up in The Netherlands shaped Esther’s music as she absorbed the rich Dutch scene of the time.
Having released on labels like Gegen Records, Coincidence Records, Toad Red Records, Fred P’s Soul People Music and Portuguese Exquisite Music, solo and also with her long-time production partner Steady Douglas as "Duijn & Douglas", Duijn has shown her skill as a producer and a DJ, with over 30 (vinyl) releases under her belt.
This has not gone unnoticed by the scene, earning her a residencial DJ slot at the mighty Tresor in Berlin and (regular) appearances at Gegen (KitKatClub), Pornceptual, De School, UNTER NYC, Freerotation Festival, Lantern Beijing, Gare Porto, Sisyphos, Bushwick A/V, Panoramabar and Trouw etc. In 2017 she was asked by Resident Advisor to do a tour in Australia together with Skatebård.
Esther’s running a label, stream & events called “Another Earth” where she invited artists like German master Moritz Von Oswald, Tom Ellis & Anton Zap.
The label features artists like Myles Serge, Duijn & Douglas, Hakim Murphy, Plural, Opuswerk, Lee Holman and herself of course. Every other month she hosts the Another Earth stream on Red Light Radio Amsterdam & HÖR Berlin.
Esther loves to mix the old, the new, the rare, the deep and the raw parts of electronic dance music to brilliant effect, never compromising on the groove. Maintaining a steady flow while staying true to the roots of Chicago house and Detroit techno. Esther also draws influence from (acid) house & (acid) techno, ghettotech, hardcore, electro, breaks, ebm, disco and dub techno, having collected vinyls for over a decade now.
Duijn cites her influences as Clone Records Rotterdam, Bunker Records Den Haag, Tresor Records, Warp Records, Daniel Bell, G-Man, Delta Funktionen, Umek (Zeta Reticula), Soulphiction, Stingray, Anthony Rother, G Flame (The Advent) and Steve Rachmad amongst others.
