 - Mental Theo


A perennial favorite as the craziest DJ in the world according to fans, Mental Theo has been a part of Hollands dance scene from the heady days of disco through to the global clubland of the new millennium, with temporary pit stops covering, Acid, Electro, Happy Hardcore, Hardcore and the immense rave revolution of the middle '80s & late '90s. That large span of time has undoubtedly affected his choice of records, since Mental Theo routinely detours through breakbeat, gabber house, and the dance mainstream during his usual sets of hard techno and harder styles. Perhaps the best testament to his performance is his immense love for music and fans.Mental Theo was born in ‘s-Hertogenbosch, The Netherlands in 1965, T heo began DJing family get-togethers at the age of ten, selecting records from his parents' stack of soul 55s. He was buying his own records soon after, (album ABBA) and owned his first pair of turntables at the age of 14. The rest of his teens was making spare money at any job he could get to sell records, though Theo studied electrical engineering in college, he quit after several years and began working various jobs until he could become a full-time DJ.Mental Theo had followed the musical trends from disco to rare groove on to hip-hop during the late '70s and early '80s, he even worked for a hip hop magazine, but the introduction of house into Holland during the middle part of the decade convinced him that he had found his niche. His reputation bloomed during the gabber house explosion of 1990-1993; Mental T heo played on wicked party’s together with dj Rob Janssen from Parkzicht Rotterdam.
