Most Known For
Jeroen Verheij a.k.a. Secret Cinema has been a key figure on the Dutch scene since 1991. Through his label Gem Records, he has been responsible for moving the careers of Egbert, Enrico Sangiuliano and Reinier Zonneveld forward. He has been a steady producer of countless essential techno classics for over 25 years.
Gem Records with it’s booking agency and label nights was formed to accommodate the new talent Verheij discovered in his search for new music. “The collective that started to form around me served as inspiration to find a new sound as a producer”. This resulted in chart successes such as ‘Kurzweil’, ‘Jazz Me’ and ‘Shake Ur Tek-Ass’. It also gave birth to a new act: Secret Cinema & Egbert. The duo is in high demand for their back to back performances and their releases.
Gem FM showcases artists from the Gem Booking agency and record label such as Christian Smith, Egbert, Pig&Dan, but also friends and favourites such as Cari Lekebusch, Noir or Bart Skils.
