In the Netherlands the JägerMusic program used to help various artists, organized concerts and became part of festivals. Previously, it focused exclusively on rock bands, but the Netherlands was the first country to expand the program with to DJ’s in 2012, because of the rapidly growing popularity of electronic music.
The DJ Program
Only a selection of the greatest talents in the Netherlands become part of the JägerMusic DJ Program and gain our support through promotion and events to make it to the next level in their careers. Worlwide, Jäger Music participates in the careers of 160 artists, but in the Netherlands there are just three. We introduce: Cleavage, Dirtcaps and Yellow Claw.
Every artist has a story of his own. The Jäger Music program seeds the story of each DJ.
Genre: Electic / House / Dubstep / Classic / Hip Hop / R&B
For Bizzey, Jim Aasgier & Nizzle, three is the magic number. That’s why these three vagabonds decided to join forces in Yellow Claw. In 2010, they launched the concept with the very first theme "bomb party" in one of Amsterdam’s most famous clubs, the Jimmy Woo.
Gracing the city with a monthly club night. Since 2011 Club Noa (Leeuwarden) and Kerkplein (Breda) also got their own monthly Yellow Claw night curated by the trio. In a time where musical boundaries fading and crossover is the most common word in music, Yellow Claw is the festival and club act of the 21st century. The Claws mix up every genre which will make you dance like crazy. From house and electro, to dubstep and all the way back to the classics with hip hop and R&B. Add Bizzey’s catchy lines and hooks to the mix and there you have it: one of the most innovating and entertaining performers on the continent. Yellow Claw’s style differs from all the other so called "eclectic" acts in the Netherlands. Due to the skills and the teamwork of the three, their interaction with the crowd is on another plane, and their rapidly conquering the rest of the world with massively popular tours through Australia and the United States.
Genre: House / Pop / UK Garage
The word Cleavage received a whole new meaning two years ago, when an Amsterdam DJ duo decided to choose this expression as their artist name. Their goal is to create music that everybody can go relate to, and so far they’ve pretty much nailed it.
Incorporating dominant bass lines and sensual vocal hooks creates their very catchy and soulful brand of house music, that has been heating up clubs for the last couple of months.
It all started with their first release "My Body". It was an immediate and sure-fire hit in the Netherlands over the summer 2014. Their following banger, "Prove", fell nothing short of its predecessor, with a rich and luscious female vocal that aims straight for the heart and a drop that gives you the shivers.
Apart from their record breaking achievements, Cleavage proved to be more than just a musical companionship. In January 2015 they released a bold, hour-long video "Jinx" to accompany their successful mixtape Dressed. One of the members of the duo is an artist as well as a DJ, and he is the creative force behind the concept.
Genre: Trap / Hardstyle / Dance / House / Eclectic / House / Electro
Dirtcaps is one of the most unique and energetic DJ/MC acts that Holland has to offer. It consists of Max Oude Weernink, Danny Groenenboom and Tim Haakmeester who in recent years have built an impressive track record.
They were regulars at GirlsLoveDJ’s and ExPornStar, played gigs at festivals like Amsterdam Open Air, Dance Valley, Valhalla and also made some successful productions that cross the gap between different music genres. Dirtcaps biggest achievement so far was the hit "Money on My Mind", which was picked up by several major radio stations. In 2015 they released the official music video for "Booty Down" together with Raynor Bruges. The highly energetic video was shot in Amsterdam and produced by JägerMusic. It showcases the crazy lives of both Dirtcaps and Raynor Bruges, who are both making their appearance in the video.
