DJ Profile


By Deanna Rilling

Between the coast-to-coast festivals and the numerous club sets, keeping track of the number of times we’ve seen Sander van Doorn is futile at this point. One indelible image is the pure happiness van Doorn seems to exude while playing for any crowd, his smile beaming all the way to the partiers in the back. Needless to say, we just get a good vibe from the guy, like when we caught up with the Netherlands native before his most recent set in Las Vegas. Van Doorn returns to Marquee on February 8, as well as Lavo on February 12.
