Behind the Booth 005: Sander van Doorn at Pacha NYC
Since Sander van Doorn made his professional foray into electronic dance music in 2004, he has been destroying dance floors all over the world. We got to tag along with him last time he was at New York’s Pacha NYC to see what he does best. Beneath the swirling lights of the packed club, Sander captivated the audience with his self-dubbed and eponymously titled “SvD-style.” While he conjured musical magic tricks, bottles popped in the VIP, scantily clad dancers shimmied in rhythm to the beat, and the crowd jumped feverishly with each selection off his USB stick.
Known in part for his genre-bending musical diversity, the Dutchman delivered a variety of aural tonics that would please any type of EDM fan. His versatility kept the room at capacity until 4 in the morning. Despite having flown in from Las Vegas at 6:15AM and booked for another 6AM flight following his gig at Pacha, Sander even played a brief encore. This DJ is as gracious and humble as he is wildly talented, and we’re thrilled to have him on our latest episode of Behind The Booth.
