About Walter Witlov

Walter Witlov produced his first sound when he was born at May 31, 1978 as Jan Willem Gijsbers. He is born and raised in one of the most creative cities of The Netherlands: Arnhem. Music always had his interest and that’s why he mastered his skills on the Technics SLK 1200 at djles.nl followed by turning the tables on several parties.

In 2006 he challenged other DJ’s in the Pioneer DJ Contest in Rotterdam. He reached the semi-finals where he competed with Nicky Romero. After this contest his DJ career became a roller coaster ride.

His genre can be described as a combination of solid bass combined with good vocals. Also known as a mix of house, progressive house and influences of trance. The crowd constantly feeling connected with his set, is most important for him. To create his own unique footprint he is working hard on his own tracks right now.

His second love is Soccer, especially his football club Vitesse Arnhem. In 2011 he joined the club as DJ. On the match days (every two weeks) he turns the tables in Gelredome Stadium, the biggest theatre of The Netherlands, for almost 20.000 people. One of his great examples, DJ Tiesto, performed here as DJ in one of the first house concerts in a stadium. Walter Witlov is proud to be able to perform on this holy ground.
