Hypnotizing with a progressive introspective style, Van Did wraps his talent for details and nuance around melodic grooves, studio-made sounds and transformed field recordings to take us on cinematic journeys through uncannily familiar lands.

Much of Van Did's music tells an adventure story arced over warping rhythms, minimalist classical touches and documentary-like vocals, often reflecting environmental themes. After releasing more than 20 original tracks and elaborate remixes on several labels including Germany's Traum Schallplatten, he created his own in 2011: Grrreat Recordings, geared to explorations of immersive sound landscapes, field recordings, textured sound design and techniques for signal processing. Three years in the making, his newest release, Avenir plays on themes of horizon, future and perspective, launching the melodic and colourful club style of Montréal event-maker and collective, 8day's label.

After international tours and sets at melodic techno label BergWacht's winter and summer festivals in Cologne, Van Did plays an expansive live set of original compositions on the stage of EXPERIENCE Mexico.
