About Maron

Global Clubbers,

Wandering around te globe is for Maron a taste of good life, serious move and know what the world has on it’s mind. Serving people with music, lifestyle and entertainment is part of his life and concepts.

Maron had his first taste of vinyl when he was seven. The first record he played was the album by Jeff Waynes “War of the Worlds” which had phenomenal sounds that influenced his interest in music.

He played acoustic guitar for about six years and at the age of 16 he started importing house music from Florence and London in the early days of the massive movement of electronic dance music.

Although the music never lost his attention, he went to University and obtained his degree in Technical Business Administration (MBA) and also got his 2nd degree in teaching. During his studies he performed at several parties for students. In addition to this, he organised the very first Modern Dance party in 1989 in Alkmaar. He conducted a radio program called “Hendriks & Van der Ven” at the radio station formerly known as Radio Plus as well as at other radio stations. During these broadcasts which took place for more than four consecutive years, he shared his vision on modern dance music with the audience. At several parties they broadcast via a livelink on-site.

He had his base at Kingdom Venue (formerly Marcanti Plaza, old cinema-theater) in Amsterdam, one of the biggest clubs in the Dutch dance scene. DJs like Tiësto, Ferry Corsten, Marco V, Armin van Buuren and many other headliners ripped off the daylights at this venue. In the summer of 2004, Maron was invited by a Jordanian organisation, www.distantheat.com, to spin with Ferry Corsten in the middle of the Wadi Rum desert in Jordan. This inspired him to search for new performance opportunities at international venues in the Middle East, South America and North Eastern Europe. At this point in time he decided to change his career and become a professional Entrepeneur, DJ and Producer, leaving behind a successful six year long career at Royal Dutch Telecom (KPN). He is now also a Managing Director of Insomnia Global, a young dynamic organisation which develops concepts and events internally and for third-parties at new regions like the Balkan, The Middle east and Africa. Insomnia Global produces concepts & events in music-lifestyle-formats and has patent on more then 80 concepts related to music, lifestyle and entertainment industry. Ready to launch in the near future !
