The accolades and achievements just keep rolling in for Dutch sensation Sander Van Doorn. In the last 12 months he has toured the globe over from Brazil to Bahrain, remixed Robbie Williams, dropped his debut artist LP 'Supernaturalistic' and totally bossed it on the White Isle. As well as seven dates at San An's busiest night Judgement Sundays, Sander also performed two headline sets for Amnesia's electric Cream once again and another three dates at Tiësto's megalithic Privilege spectacles - the most well attended parties on the island. In fact, just three years after rocketing into the Top 100 it seems odd to consider Sander a breakthrough artist. Even though that's the award he picked up at this year's International Dance Music Awards in Miami. "That was definitely a highlight though," beams the humble young Dutchman. Studio-wise, Sander has wasted little time since dropping his 'Supernaturalistic' LP, which experimented with ambient breaks, grinding techno and more minimal concoctions than most expected. A collaboration with his former DJ inspiration Marco V, 'Organic' was a deliciously lush tech-house number with the two already laying down a follow-up. "I'm taking four weeks off over October and November purely to focus on studio time," says Sander. "And I'm looking at different concepts for next year. Maybe an eight-track mini album with a DJ mix on the second disc."
