Wilger Woertman is a Dutch young man from the Netherlands. From his childhood to his puberty that took place in the 90s, he created a great interest in music. He always knew he wanted to do something with music, what exactly? He did not know. Until he discovered the in that time rising house music and life as a house DJ. He lost his heart to the house industry, and knew from that moment that he did not only wanted but needed to be a part of that industry. He considered it his vocation. So he began his journey to his place in the industry by the name Dj Mortez.
After working hard he can afford himself his first turntables in 1998. With the rapidly growing world of house music and the supplies of new equipment, it is only a matter of time until Mortez gets his hands on the world-famous CDJ’s. After he’d turned his CDJ’s inside out, he is ready to take serious steps towards playing music in nightlife. At age 18 Mortez becomes a resident Dj of the most visited club from his city and has he been part of the now familiar EDM scene in the Netherlands.
By experimenting with various music like Deep house, Hardstyle, Dub-Step, Progressive house and Electro at parties that he himself organized, he came up with the brilliant idea to develop his own sound/style. A mix of progressive and electro house. The studio which he built in a period of time was the place where he locked himself up & worked for years on perfecting this very own sound/style, a hybrid of Progressive, Big room & electro. In the club where he Deejay’s, his music was well received.
People wanted to hear more and more of his music, and soon it became well known. After he had introduced his music, offers from various clubs and festivals came in. In 2016 he will release an EP, in the meantime you will have to do with the Dj Mortez tracks, lifesets and mixtapes which can be found on youtube, soundcloud and itunes.
