Following in the footsteps of his chart-topping countrymen, Dutch DJ Menno De Jong continued to spread the trance gospel this year, and a summer as worldwide resident for both Global Gathering and GodsKitchen gave him a taste of playing regularly to festival-sized crowds. "I really enjoyed doing that," he recalls. He's clearly not a DJ who lacks endurance either. After last year's Top 100 party, De Jong played an eight-hour set to a packed crowd in an old factory in Amsterdam. "We put up a lead wall, lasers and all sorts. It blew me away. The vibe was really good and people were just there for the music. The most amazing feat was that I didn't go to the toilet once!" A remix for Vandit and collaboration with Leon Bolier - 'Last Night Tonight' - has kept things boiling on the production front, while the end of the year sees the release of a new mix album, 'Intuition Sessions Vol.2', featuring three or four new tracks. Meanwhile, his Intuition radio show continues to draw hundreds of thousands of listeners.
