Estroe Mix

Dutch Estroe belongs to an elite club of female DJ’s that made it to the top. Born in Zutphen as Esther Roozendaal in 1972, raised near Amsterdam and currently living in Rotterdam, she has been djing for more than ten years. Whether it’s behind the turntables in the famous Fuse in Brussels, the Watergate in Berlin or an underground club in Tokyo, Estroe knows how to tune in and drop the right beats.

Things really took off when Estroe started producing her own tracks back in 2003. She learned everything there was to know about hard and software. With her sophisticated, warm and elegant style she soon appeared on the radar of Djs like Laurent Garnier, Ripperton and John Digweed. The latter was blown away by Estroe’s minimalist masterpiece Driven and asked her for a remix on his Bedrock label. Techno don Dave Clarke has also been a long time fan of her, booking her for his White Noise parties on more than one occasion. With her debut album on Connaisseur Recordings released in November 2009, things are looking bright for Estroe, hence she has given up her job last year to concentrate fully on her tunes and djing.
