Von Rosenthal de la Vegaz

In The Netherlands there’s a DJ who’s in a class all his own as regards the kind of music he tends to sample: Von Rosenthal de la Vegaz. He, with his earlier musical training at the Royal Conservatory in The Hague, has chosen to invade the domain of classical music; and what this means, most often, is that he will refrain from making his samplings move to a beat – though he is more than able whenever he wishes of getting them jumping, and not even necessarily to the pulse of a bass. In practice, therefore, his music is not intended directly for the dance floor; but it works very well at parties and events where a different sort of tone is needed.
