DJ Sander Van Dien
Weighing in from The Netherlands, boasting (and rightfully so) as one of the most exciting and talented producers in Electronic Dance Music over the past 5 years, Sander van Dien has cemented his place in the playlists of the biggest and most influential Progressive House and Trance acts across the globe.
Under the FIRST STATE guise, he has produced some of the biggest and most memorable tracks, frequenting global sales charts including 3 number 1's and multiple top 10’s ( The most notable of which saw his track “Brave” featured on iTunes “Best Sellers” chart, above [then world’s number 1 DJ Armin van Buuren’s “ Imagine” , Tiesto’s “Elements of Life” and David Guetta’s “One Love” ).
From his very first release, Sander has always brimmed with attention to detail and strict quality control. Combine that with his musical genius and the technical know-how of an aeronautical engineer, and the most important ingredient, his signature blend of hard hitting beats and big room riffs, combined with melodic progressions that would make Beethoven proud, and you have a formula for a producer that can deliver a product equal to the talents of the biggest artists in the world.
After almost endless travels across every continent, performing at the biggest clubs and festivals in the world, Sander has now found himself plying his trade in the company of Water Music, where he’s been dubbed by his colleagues as “The Dutch Master”.
