The story of Anoebis starts in 1998, Joske Vranken aka Dj Anoebis discovered Goa – Trance in that year. I was so convinced of that music & bought all the CD’s I could buy. Pretty soon I had 200 Cd’s which resulted in a first Dj set in 2000 New Year Eve.
Around that period I didn’t DJ alone. Mostly I played together with a friend called Dave (DJ name Paprika) and together we were called PaprikanoebiS. Because Dave was too busy with his studies I played alone since 2001 and before I realized I was playing more or less every weekend.
The first years of the new millennium were hard. Around that period I was one of the last DJs playing “melodic goa trance”, the old school style. Because I loved that style so much and it seemed more or less dead, I and a good friend (Mars/Fabien) decided to start our own music label called Suntrip Records. Not much later melodic goa-trance started to revive in Belgium and some other countries in the world and this resulted in many parties with only “old /new-school goa-trance”, This meant little sleep for me, but lots of joy! And for some obscure reasons, this love for melodic goa-trance continues until today. Since 2010 my career also exploded more internationally, So I hope many more mind blowing experiences will come soon.
I have checked on how many parties I played by now in 2020, I will have played on more or less 700 parties in my life… Mostly in Belgium of course, but the last few years in a lot in other countries as well… Like Israel, Japan, Brazil, and more or less every country in Europe! also, I am lucky to say I played on many big festivals such as Boom Festival, Psy Fi, Lost Theory Festival, ZNA Festival, SUN Festival, Apsara, Samsara.
Although I’m doing this for a long time now I still love this music (it’s so deep in my heart, you can not imagine) and I still love dj-ing. Nothing fulfills my heart more than a crowd dancing and smiling in the first rays of sunshine.
Thanks for all the support last 20 years and let’s go for the next 20.
