Biography

Randy Katana originally came from the Dutch Antillean Islands (Aruba, Curacao and St Maarten), where for many years he worked as resident DJ at many of the trendiest clubs on the Islands. He also spend many years playing drums in Brass Bands, which on the islands where specialized in Carnival music. This is where Randy acquired the Latin tribal soul that he projects in his music today.

Shortly after moving to Amsterdam in 1988, he started his own record company BPM Dance and opened one of the most successful online vinyl shops till this day: Only-Djs.com. After experiencing difficult times in the music industry, because of the free downloads, he decided to become a fulltime DJ. January 2003 he stopped the activities in the companies and by the end of the year he agreed to become resident DJ to, what was to become one of the hottest places in party history in Amsterdam, “Xtra Large” (Marcanti Plaza) and “Crazyland”. It took him only two years to make his first entry in the DJ Mag world top 100 list, in 2005, at number 150.

Currently Randy Katana is working on an album that will specifically project his unique style combining new material with special edits of floor fillers. The album was initially scheduled to be released in the end of 2006. But the dance scene changed so fast in this period that he decided to wait and see what direction it would go. 2007 is the year of the “Electro” sound.
