Jan de Vice (real name Micha Schrodt) is a DJ and music producer who specialised in progressive trance and started expanding his skills in melodic and deep house in 2018.
His first attempts as a musician trace back to the early 90s, when he started making music with Atari ST, Roland Alpha Juno 1, TB-303, TR-909 and various other analog synthesizers. Jan was part of a dance and pop band as a singer and keyboarder and gained experience on stage playing gigs throughout Europe.
His breakthrough finally came in 1998, when he signed his first contract with the record label Future Recordings, a sub-label of Music Research.
Over the next years he co-founded Dark Noize Recordings and Minimal Sound Noise and began working as a DJ promoter at Media Records Germany. This role allowed him to create a broad network of DJs, labels and music producers. Inspired by the music of Anjunabeats, Bonzai Records and Ministry of Sound, Jan continued working on many music projects throughout all over Europe, gaining attention from famous DJs such as Armin van Buuren and DJ Tiesto.
In 2020 he started producing and releasing songs in his own Deerflow Studio for Electric Dada. The DJ duo celebrated their debut in 2020. The hard work finally paid off when they signed a contract with the Dutch label Korecraft.
As of April 2020, Jan de Vice is part of the DJ radio show Electric Dada Sound Adventure (#edsa001, #edsa002, #edsa003 …), which is broadcast monthly on YouTube. New special editions of #edsa are to come and will be streamed live on YouTube and Twitch.
