Insound Co Founder
Call it serendipity; call it hard work and countless years spent honing a craft that is simply your raison d’être; call it an acute cognisance of what makes the modern music industry tick and an almost visceral awareness of how music is inculcated by the club going fraternity. Whatever defines a career at the vanguard of the underground dance industry for more than 20 years; Jimmy Van M is the epitome of such a definition. Jimmy has a wide-ranging musical influence (Depeche Mode, Pink Floyd, Front 242, AC/DC, The Cure, Talking Heads, Prince, New Order) which lead him into electronic music with his first club experience at 14 years of age at The Bocaccio in Gent, Belgium to his first residency in NYC at the legendary Twillo together with Sasha and John Digweed and leading up to one of his proudest moments, creating the Delta Heavy Tour 2002 with Sasha & John Digweed, reaching 31 cities, over a 100.000 people total audience, across 60 days.
Jimmy Van M’s ability to adapt, diversify and sustain his relevance in a dynamic and transitory industry has not been achieved by passion and dedication to his craft have seen Jimmy as vital today highlighting and developing conceptual frameworks from which he underpins his musical ideas. Currently residing in Buenos Aires assures an enduring legacy, plans to push the musical boundaries once more into new and exciting arenas is set to see Jimmy Van M’s innovation light up Latin America, and his influence extended far beyond. He is constantly looking for new talents for his labels Mater and Xpermiental and he is heading a revolution by managing the new music generation through Insound Academy as a mentor.
