Han Beukers was born in Rotterdam in 1966 and since an early age, he listened to the soul show and mixes of Ben Liebrand on the radio. Thus the dream of becoming a dj began to develop at an early age. In the 1980’s he spent many hours, with his mate Vincent, listening and buying the latest new import records at Hotsound in Rotterdam where he also witnessed the birth of the house at and later the trance music. During that time they regularly played at school parties under the artist name of “Studio1999”. His sales and marketing career in Telecom & ICT brought him a different path during that time.
His passion for the Uplifting Trance music was born when Ferry Corsten played the track Out of the Blue (Violin edit) at Trance Energy. Throughout the years and thanks to the many (Dance & Trance) festivals, the dj booth continued to attract. In the summer of 2015 he refuled his old hobby and dream by buying a Numark DJ set. The mixes he made as a bedroom dj were picked up by RTV Krimpenerwaard and in February of 2016 he launched a weekly radio show called Time4Trance. The fan base of this live radio show is steadily growing thanks to the support and guestmixes by dj-producers such as; ReOrder, Björn Akesson, Ram, Radion6, Allen Watts, Amir Hussain, Dimension and live performances in the studio by; Faith Mark, Misja Helsloot, Willem de Roo, Angelique, Marc de Heijer, Westerman and Oostink, KO-C, Tim Verkruissen, Spark & Shade, Mike Spinner, Patrick Dreama, Swen van der Endt and many others.
