In less than twelve months time Korsakoff managed to create a whole new subgenre within the dancescene. If we say Powerrave, you say Korsakoff. In the meantime, she recorded two top ten videos, produced a prestigious mix album and played at venues all over Europe. The album entitled ‘The Sound of’ is released in the spring of 2006, together with some surprising 12” vinyl releases, wallpapers, powertones for cellphone), downloadable videos and exclusive freeloads. The secret of her success? Dedication and determination, dj Korsakoff never sleeps! Lindsay van der Eng (23) alias DJ Korsakoff is one of the rising stars in the international dancescene.
With her first hitsingle Separated World (2001), she impressed partypeople as well as the music industry. After the release of the tracks Tamara and My Empty Bottle, Korsakoff obtained the status of a well respected producer in the Netherlands. Her popularity increased explosively when the tracks Unleash the Beast and Stardom became instant hits and occupied the number one position in the Box-Charts for over two months. Her success didn’t stay unnoticed abroad, Korsakoff gets massive support in countries like Spain, the United Kingdom, Italy, Switzerland, Belgium, France and Germany.
Korsakoffs style is mainly focused on the dancefloor and that is probably why her performances are appealing to a broad audience. Her music can be described as Powerrave: a unique, melodic, energetic crossover between different styles of house music. Intelligent combined forces: the melody of hardtrance, the pounding beats of hardcore and the energetic rush of rave. Powerrave is music made for massive venues and finds its origin in the dominating labels of the early/mid nineties, like the German based Dance Ecstasy 2001 label, Dance Opera and Bonzai-records. But also tracks like Drax-Amphetamine (Trope recordings can be submitted to Lindsays list of influences.
Lindsay van der Eng was born on July 25, 1983 in Akersloot, a small village near Amsterdam. As a child, Lindsay rather climbed trees than play with dolls. Doing ‘boys-stuff’ and talking boys-talk would later on come in handy, since the music industry is still a testosterone dominated world. Lindsay signed a contract with ‘ProArtistManagement’ (PAM). Soon after joining PAM she was booked for her first dj-performance at the MOH raveparty on September 18, 2004. A happening at the gigantic Thialf ice-skating stadium in Heerenveen (The Netherlands) with more then 18.000 visitors.
Korsakoffs first appearance on stage was the dream start of every successful dj-career. Following her debut, Korsakoff played on parties in the Hemkade 48 venue in Zaandam. Soon after she was asked to appear at Thunderdome. Here she shared her choice of records with 19.500 people at the Jaarbeurs Congress Centre in Utrecht. Dj Korsakoff still plays at several 10.000 plus venues nowadays, with an ever growing audience following her every move. Korsakoff is ranked highest newcomer in the Dutch Release Dance Awards 2005. Placed at 28, she let a lot of international big shots (as Erick Morillo, Dave Clarke and Sasha) far behind. All this makes DJ Korsakoff one of the fastest rising stars of the scene. You will hear a lot of Powerrave in the near future!
