“Sultry, Dreamy, Warm, Stimulating, Sexy. That is what I want to bring across in my sets. I don’t just want them to dance, I want them to completely lose their minds.”
The musical philosophy of JP Enfant is as clear-cut as his DJ sets. The affable Amsterdam resident is on a fast track to become an influential figure in techno through his work as a DJ, producer, promoter and label manager.
It all happened in Amsterdam that he got acquainted to the likeminded souls with whom he would establish a collective that would solidify his place in the Amsterdam dance scene: LET – Les Enfants Terribles. The part record label, part promoter that has acted as a vessel through which JP could purvey his idiosyncratic musical style and preference: “dubbed, steaming and slightly melancholic techno made for the dance floor, alongside the odd excursion to experimental and bass.”
Aside from putting LET on the map, Trouw was of course also a stepping-stone for JP’s personal career as well. Due to his sets at Trouw, where he also became a resident, it wasn’t too long before others spotted him. 2014 and ’15 were pivotal in his career, with performances at the bigger festivals such as Awakenings, Mysteryland and Amsterdam Open Air, along with other highlights such as gigs at the legendary Berlin techno haven Tresor an his recently acquired residency at the Amsterdam based club De School, or granted lead support for one of his biggest personal icons: Jeff Mills.
Release-wise JP has been making strides as well. A strong work ethic, combined with his blooming creativity, has resulted in the release of some outstanding EPs that have not gone unnoticed.The EP, released on his own LET-imprint which he started in May ‘15, has received profound support from Ben Klock, DJ Deep, Delta Funktionen, Daniel Avery, Len Faki, Ben Sims, Rødhad and Sebastian Mullaert.
