Ian van der Stap, better known as Ian S, is born and raised in Rotterdam, The Netherlands. Through his childhood Ian grew up with several styles of music. Throughout the years he gained a lot of musical experience.

At the age of 14 he started making transitions and mash-ups from tracks of his favourite artists. From this point forward, his passion for house music grew and grew. Ian entered all the night clubs on early age and spent all his time on digital music platforms. Seeing big names was a new highlight. With this knowledge Ian started creating his own sound.

After making mixtapes, including his own tracks, edits and mash-ups, many people gave him the chance to perform in several nightclubs. A year later Ian got his first residency at a nightclub in Rotterdam. He played there every weekend to improve his technical skills. This did not go unnoticed.

Besides being dj at the age of 15, Ian also started to make his own music. After a year of hard work his input got rewarded. This resulted in several releases on various (inter)national labels and being featured on various compilations.

Nowadays Ian already played in the biggest clubs of Rotterdam and its surroundings. After that the international performances followed in Belgium, Curacao, France, Greece, Russia and Spain.

Ian developed his energetic sound to some funky, clubby and groovy house. Uplifting melodies and dirty basslines is what you can expect when Ian S is around!
