During the last years Config crossed many styles of music. The first style he really got interested in was Progressive Trance and Progressive House, during the period when Sultan, Matthew Dekay, Sasha, and many others had their great days. But as the time went by he slowly moved on to the more energetic kind of melodic music, Trance. The way trancetracks could move him and touch his snares was something he really enjoyed. Great euphoric feelings that caused so many emotions; it were great times to listen to Trance.
Therefor, it wasn't a surprise his first dj sets were mostly tranceminded. However, in 2006 Config was getting a little fed up by the sound in the world of trance.. The tracks lost the touch they had years before, and to him it felt too generic, too artificial. During 2006 his sets were mostly crossover sets from progressive to trance, with progressive slowly taking over. In 2007 Config decided to leave trance behind and totally focus on Progressive again, his biggest love. From there on he varied from playing House to even Techno, still with 'melody' as the most important aspect in his sets.
He also started making mashups with his favourite tracks, which resulted in some support by some of the most famous dj's in the scene, like James Zabiela and DJ Orkidea. In the beginning of 2011 Config decided to team up with J.E.O.F. and form their new alias 'Guess What?'. The duo stands for great house, fully blended with special Guess What?-edits and mashups, giving every single set they play a unique edge; Party Time garantueed! After only being founded for a short amount of time Guess What? got book for a set in Culture Club, Ghent. The start of a very promising duo has been HUGE! But do not worry, the Config spirit is also still alive and to be found in every Config-set you will hear! Discography In 2007 Config decided it was time to put some more creativity in his sets.
A day after he started experimenting in Ableton his first mashup was born. It wasn't the usual mashup, but it was more of a mashup remix, with a strong Config touch on it. New parts were made, vocals were cut to pieces and glued together again.. His first mashup, Perry O'Neil vs Marscruiser - Not Alone In This Bass Society (Config's No Choice Mashup), immediately received support from Koris vs DJule, Milan Lieskovsky and many others, but in the summer of 2007 he had a real blast when his newest mashup Deadmau5 vs Yilmaz Altanhan - Faxing Eighties (Config's Encrypted Mashup) was played by James Zabiela, and was selected to be in his August Promo mix.
Lots of support followed and slowly Config was getting a little bit of his fame also.
