Mr Mendel is a DJ who is exceptionally dedicated to his craft. Always in search of those special pieces of music to love. Driven by the philosophy of playing beautiful music because it moves you emotionally and physically and bringing that heartfelt music to the dance floor.
Growing up in Amsterdam, Mr Mendel’s first influences were found in hiphop. Later when he worked at Waxwell Records, he got further introduced to many styles of music, broadening his musical horizon from Brazil to Afro, Soul and Disco to House.
Mr Mendel’s selections are characterised by passionate and intriguing tunes with an uplifting spirit. In his sets you can recognise his diverse influences, from Chicago’s (ware)house pioneers to Amsterdam’s soulful school of DJs.
The last three years Mr Mendel has been touring extensively through Europe and beyond. In the meantime he released on Lumberjacks in Hell, Disco Deviance and Basic Fingers, as well as curated the tropical playlist for 22tracks.
