About Michael Forzza

Michael Forzza is a DJ/producer whose ideals can be traced back to the golden era of Belgium’s house and techno scene. It was a time pre-Internet, when raves were more a collection of inspired individuals and cutting-edge music than a setting for touched-up photos. An early adopter of this discerning sound, since 1995 he has stood at the vanguard of his country’s globally respected techno scene. A quick look at Forzza’s generation reveals a group shaped not only by pivotal local labels such as R&S, but also from the foreign threads of Detroit techno, early minimal sounds, straight-up house and beyond. In 2001, Forzza was instrumental in setting up Perimeter Records, a label that quickly became a byword for quality, in the process further elevating his reputation outside of his native country.
