Deep 4 Life is back at Tinwell Saturday, January 6 with AUSTEN VAN DER BLEEK (Open House Conspiracy | St. Petersburg, FL). Austen is up-and-coming in the scene on the east coast and King Britt has even called him “Too young to be this deep!”
Bio: Austen van der Bleek is a US DJ gaining recognition for his hard-to-pin, but distinctive style. His understanding of music and demeanor behind the decks is often described as well beyond his years.
Austen van der Bleek is helping usher in a tried and true American underground dance music renaissance in Florida. The sound he’s developed, through both his sets and in the works productions, has impressed legends the likes of King Britt, Roy Davis Jr., and Mystic Bill — Britt even dubbing him “too young to be this deep.” As the driving force behind Open House Conspiracy, Van der Bleek is responsible for bringing guests to Central Florida such as the aforementioned, as well as Kai Alce, Charles Webster, Rick Wade, Mike Huckaby, and more, while also working with and earning the respect of the city's veteran exports and originals like Michael Zucker, Sleazy McQueen, Q-Burns Abstract Message, and Manny Cuevas. He’s been sought as support for other bills featuring Project Pablo, Gene Hunt, and Tony Touch as well as more commercial figures like Chris Lake and Sasha. Whether he’s selecting for carefully curated bars and clubs or underground basements and renegade sound systems, festivals like Suwannee Hulaween or art gallery warehouses in Tucson and Orlando, open-air patios and rooftops or craft beer gardens across the state, Austen van der Bleek is one of the most versatile DJs his age. He is currently based out of St. Pete. 2017 has seen him play quite a few first-time destinations for the young artist like Miami, Cartagena, Detroit, Denver, and Atlanta.
