Neo Young has been operating in the dance scene for more than 15 years now, as a dj, organiser and label manager. His raw and authentic style fits perfectly to please even the most worn out party-animals. This quality comes in handy while playing long after hour sets, switching mostly between minimal, techno and techhouse. It is in these late hours that he really gets his groove on, making sure everyone loses track of time and becomes sucked into the music the same way he is.
