It isn’t Sensation without the legendary Mr. White. This pale-faced resident DJ has mastered the craft on how to set the perfect party atmosphere through his subtle house vibes and tech-house grooves. He’s been traveling the world alongside Sensation for several years now, rocking one dance floor at a time on a global scale. Mr. White is not only a dance music icon, he’s an essential ingredient for every Sensation show.
Making his debut appearance in the Arena, please welcome up and coming talent Youri Alexander aka YAX.X. Creator of the anthem for this year’s Sensation Amsterdam ‘Angels & Demons’ show, which illustrates his music and production skills. YAX.X cut his teeth with vinyl from the age of fourteen playing hip-hop, house, and electro. His insatiable desire to spin records saw him play in just about every venue in Amsterdam, where he crafted an art for reading a dance floor and delivering the goods. As his musical direction evolved, he found himself playing house, but he still maintains a sharp ear for a groove or hook that entertains the floor. In the last year, YAX.X has taken his first steps into the European DJ circuit with debut gigs in Barcelona, Valencia, Belgium, as well as Ibiza with gigs at Pacha, Privilege, and Blue Marlin.
Sem Thomasson is a renowned artist in the Belgium electronic music scene. The young songwriter and DJ gained international fame with his stunning remix work for artists like Flo Rida, Nelly Furtado, and Steve Aoki. His remix version of ‘Sweet Spot’ by Flo Rida featuring JLo received a lot of appreciation. Thomasson has performed at various international music festivals like Tomorrowland and Tomorrowworld. This year, he played at Tomorrowland for the 7th time in a row. Since 2014, he has developed his skills as a songwriter and producer by working for and with other artists including fellow Belgian DJs Regi, Yves-V.
