Mauke Rodermond, one of the founders of Nijmegen’s Open Source Radio and Electro club night Orbit, works at Drift as Creative Manager and spins under the name of Operating Modus. Mauke began deejaying at a young age, starting out with an interest in House music, which would later evolve to genres such as EBM, Breaks, and Electro. For his sets he creates a consistent storyline while mixing all kinds of sounds and tracks. He also hosts two radio shows, Challenger at Operator Radio together with Roel Zweers, and Subaquatic at Open Source Radio.
We spoke to Mauke about his career in the music world, his initiative Open Source Radio, the party concept Orbit at Doornroosje, and the exciting Nijmegen creative scene.
