Corka’an – Netherland
—————— Ω ——————
Corka’an is born in 1972 in Hoogezand (northern Netherlands), Cor doesn’t have a musical background.
Around 2006 he finds a psy-trance CD in his car and through this disc he comes into contact with psy-trance music for the first time.
The sound intrigued him and so he went looking for psy-trance parties to go to. A good friend showed him where to go if he wanted to get into the scene.
He soon felt at home and in 2009 organised his first party; a private party called ‘AUMDAT’!
After this he immersed himself in designing decorations under the name of ‘Goalistic Area 51’ (later also under ‘Pasta Piraat’).
After listening to a lot of psy-trance in many different locations, Cor knew he wanted to be the guy behind the psychedelic wheel. So he bought his first set of players (CDJ 100S with a Behringer 750 mixer) and taught himself how to play.
His first public appearance was at the GIDEON festival in 2012 under the name ‘Aquatone’. After this performance he knew he wanted to go further than this: he wanted to grow and get better!
With hard work and playing for hours and hours on end in his small basement Cor really started to get the feeling. People invited him to play at small parties at first.
He really enjoys this and gradually finds his own sound, which is quite open because of the lack of musical background. Around this time he also started to play psychedellic chill out.
With more playing time he gets to play at bigger parties and people even start to recognize his sound!
In order to seperate the forest/dark sets from the chill out sets he then had to find a second DJ name and it came to him as ‘Corka’an’.
So after playing for a longer period of time, his taste in music got so wide that he decided to only use the name Aquatone for chill-out sets and Corka’an will play the forest/dark psychedelic sounds.
Other people were starting to see his hard work and in 2014 both Aquatone and Corka’an got a chance to play (a total of two sets) at a major festival: Psy-Fi!
Through this a wish came true and it didn’t stop there… In the years after he has played in Germany (Hai in den Mai, Wonderland, Synaptic Eclipse, Unterholz, Club Charlotte and other places) as well as Belgium and even in Portugal. Who knows what will come next?!
He finally integrated Dream Crew Records family in 2018 as a DJ.
