In the heart of the Netherlands, a young Ferreck Coppens, better known as Ferreck Dawn, spent countless hours scouring local record shops, fingers dancing over rows of vinyl. The tactile sensation of flipping through records was a ritual, each find a treasure promising the pulsating beats that would soon reverberate through speakers. Vinyl wasn’t just a medium; it was a lifeline to the immersive world of house music.

Ferreck’s early days were marked by this intimate connection with music. The painstaking selection of tracks, the tactile pleasure of handling vinyl, and the deep, resonant sounds that filled his home formed the bedrock of his burgeoning career. At 17, armed with a turntable and an ever-growing collection of records, he began DJing. His sets were a journey, blending old-school vibes with emerging house sounds, creating a sonic experience that was both nostalgic and refreshingly new.

As the digital age dawned, many feared the death of vinyl. But for Ferreck, it was an evolution. He seamlessly transitioned, embracing the accessibility and versatility of digital formats without losing the soul of his craft. The essence of vinyl’s warmth and depth remained in his productions, even as he explored new technologies. His adaptability became one of his greatest strengths, allowing him to stay relevant in an ever-changing musical landscape.

Ferreck’s alliance with Defected Records was a turning point. Known for championing quality house music, Defected provided the perfect platform for Ferreck’s sound. Hits like “In Arms” and “Love Too Deep” dominated charts and dance floors alike, earning him a loyal following. Yet, amidst the digital files and streaming platforms, Ferreck’s heart still beat to the rhythm of vinyl.

Even today, as he plays at iconic venues and festivals worldwide, Ferreck’s sets often pay homage to his vinyl roots. For Ferreck Dawn, the journey from vinyl to digital is not just a career trajectory—it’s a narrative of passion, evolution, and dedication to the beats that move us.
