DJ Remnis show delivers the first hour of pure vinyl classics we love along with guest mixes from trance, hard trance and techno DJ's in the second hour. Mixing up the old with the new, we go Beyond Reminiscing every 4th Friday from 7pm on Safehouse Radio.
Remnis started DJing in 2009, learning himself to play on a controller and laptop. As he discovered more and more old music, he realised that he had to get records to be able to play his favourite music. In 2011, he started collecting vinyls and he spent hours upon hours teaching himself to mix with vinyl.
In mid-2011, Remnis was invited to get a weekly residency at the FearFM hard stream, specialised in early hardstyle and hard trance. After about one and a half year, the radio station quit. In the years after FearFM, he had lots of time to improve his mixing. It would be until 2015 until he would have a regular radio show again.
2015 saw the founding of the BIT - Back in Time group, a group of DJs passionate about the roots of hardstyle. Focussing on the era of 2000 - 2010, this group has a weekly radio show at rhr.fm. Every week, one of the 12 DJs makes a mix. Every few months, the group presents a liveshow, gathering in a studio in the south of the Netherlands. Furthermore, the group does BIT showcases at gigs every now and then. Remnis has played at a few of these showcases around the Netherlands. Other than these showcases, he played at some local gigs in and around Utrecht, the Netherlands.
In September 2016, Remnis started his very own monthly radio show on Safehouseradio. ‘Beyond Reminiscing’ gave him the opportunity to really do what he wanted, without musical boundaries. The show includes hard trance, techno, acid, trance and more.
Around 2011, Remnis started looking into producing his own music. In 2016, he joined Nostic in the studio and they started a collab track, The Project. Having almost finished it, it will only be a matter of time before it is released.
Nowadays, his main focus is on hard trance, be it old or new. His most beloved style is the German hard trance from labels like Chaos Records, Overdose, Pulse and Tracid Traxxx, from around 2001. Other genres Remnis loves and often plays are techno, trance, acid, early rave, Chicago house and early hardstyle.

Join Monastery Resident Chris Blade for your weekend warm up every third Friday from 9pm, with Dance 2 Trance. Delivering a live mix of Uplifting & Hard Trance, you can expect plenty of classic's and upfront fresh promos. He will also be inviting DJ's on to the show for some guest mixes.
Chris's love for dance music all started at the age of 18, having a brother who is a few years older, gave him the opportunity to go out with him and experience some amazing club nights and DJ's that rocked a packed dance floor on a regular basis, it was moments like these that gave him the ambition to become a Dj.
Chris Blade has been a DJ since 1994, in that time he has travelled all over the world to some of the best club nights and dance events imaginable, so he knows first hand what is expected to produce a memorable night on the dance floor!
His career started out in Torquay at the age of 20, playing out on a student night every week at one of the popular bars, Chris soon had a small fan base which helped him secure regular warm up sets at the best night clubs in Torquay, his natural ability behind the decks and the way he worked the crowd with his energetic sets, soon gave him the break he was waiting for. The famous Monastery night club and the legendary Claire's (Full Tilt) both offered him Resident DJ.
It was at this time where he had the privilege to play with some of the best DJ's in the industry on a regular basis, Judge Jules, Lisa Pin-Up, Lisa Lashes, BK, Steve Thomas, John oo Fleming, Graham Gold to name a few and he certainly lived up to the challenge. Another Residency at Pilgrimage in Plymouth and other club nights at Dance Academy (Plymouth), Fish Tank (Portsmouth), Underground (Sheffield) and many more around the UK.
Chris is currently one of the residents for Extreme Revolution, he has been fortunate to play along side Kutski and DJ Scott Project recently, and is looking forward to many more quality club nights in the future.
As one of the four founders of Future Sound, which was a promotion and DJ agency, he was a key player in all of the Future Sound nights that were held across the country, but one that really sticks in his mind was at the Mezzanine in Wolverhampton, which was voted the No.1 club in the country at the time, after this very successful night, this also gave him the opportunity to DJ at the Mezzanine sunset cafe in Ibiza, which was located near the famous cafe Mambo.
Over the years his music genre has varied through garage, house, funky house, tech house, electro, tech trance, uplifting trance, hard trance, hard house, Nu NRG and even the odd bit of drum n bass, what ever the occasion he uses his technical ability with all types of equipment, whether it's spinning vinyl on the legendary Technics, CD's on the ground breaking Pioneers or using the latest digital equipment in Traktor, his DJ sets are always energetic, he reads the crowd, always plays for the crowd and he appreciates how fortunate he is to be a DJ.
