Who I Follow
Jacco Van W (Jacco van Wijnen) aka DJ Doulbe D is a Dutch DJ / producer born in Amersfoort, Netherlands on July 22 1968.
From a very young age there were signs of Jacco loving the sound of a good beat, at the age of 3 he got his first drum set from his parents.
Jacco started playing around with equipment at the age of 9 and first started mixing using a Akai reel to reel tape recorder to cut and paste tape in order to make loops and mixes.
A little later he added 2 Lenco turntables to his Alecto mixer and started to learn the mixing game using these decks.
At age 11 he played his first DJ gig at his sisters birthday party on the loft of their parents home and from that night on he knew his passion in life was mixing music so got better equipment which led him to performing for other birthday parties.
At the age of 16 he played his first proper gig in a local discotheque where his childhood friend was already a resident DJ and taught him the skills he needed to progress trying all sorts of genres from disco, soul to Motown.
When house music started to break through early nineties he instantly knew he also wanted to play that kind of music.
After a disagreement with the club owner regarding house music he decided to take the risk and left the club to start playing HOUSE music in rival club which was almost bankrupt at that time.
It was a big success and in a couple of weeks time the club simply couldn’t hold anymore. The name JACCO was the words on all the lips of the local club goers and word got around his home country, Holland.
In 2006 Jacco, took a break but something was missing in his life, performing for the masses!
It took him less than a year to realise this, the rest is history.
