Radio Stad Den Haag was a very popular pirate radio station in the ’80s. The station was connected with several import record shops in The Hague. Due to that its DJs played the newest dance music. The station also played a lot of Italo Disco music, as The Hague – at that time – could be seen as the Italo Disco capital of The Netherlands.

Since many of Joe Nathan’s productions are based on old Italo Disco or ’80s dance music records, it’s no surprise still has a soft spot for Radio Stad Den Haag. While the station currently still plays mostly the music from their heydays in the ’80s, they’re open to new music as well. Hence why Joe Nathan played a lot of new material, based on classic hits, in his DJ-set.

In a previous live mix on the same station on November 3rd, 2019, Joe Nathan played mostly Nu-Disco and Jackin House, as well as a few of his own productions. No video recording was made at the time, but the audio can be found below.

New release: Remix The Remix – Diamond In The Night (feat. Bowman)

The newest artist releasing music on UniGroove is Remix The Remix. The first single by Remix The Remix is called Diamond In The Night and is produced by Jonathan Joosten a.k.a. Joe Nathan. The vocals are sung by American singer Bowman.

Diamond In The Night is a tribute to Italian singer Felli, who recorded the song originally in 1983. The new version has a completely different arrangement, but in essence, it’s still the same song.

2019 update

Also in 2019 Joe Nathan is continuing to produce remakes for ’80s and ’90s club classics, as well as his own tracks. For these he’s planning several collaborations with vocal talents, just like in 2018. There are negotiations with a record label, so hopefully more news on that soon.

UniGroove ADE sampler 2018

Joe Nathan heeft niet bepaald stil gezeten de afgelopen maanden. Het resultaat is een aantal nieuwe producties die verzamelt zijn op een sampler voor het Amsterdam Dance Event 2018. De sampler kreeg als ondertitel “Return to the classics” mee omdat alle tracks remakes zijn van meer of minder bekende jaren 80 plaatjes (en een paar uitzonderingen daarop) Check de sampler hieronder:

New Joe Nathan mashup: Cola Children

Joe Nathan started off 2018 with making a new mashup that he had been thinking of doing for some time. “The bassline of Camelphat & Elderbrook – Cola reminded me of “Children” by Robert Miles every time I heard the track. After discussing that with a befriended fellow DJ I figured I’d see how well they could blend together. Turns out they blend together surprisingly well.”

Want to hear how these two songs sound together? Check out Joe Nathan’s mashup below.

Update June 2018:
It has been pointed out to us that more mashups of Cola and Children have popped up the past few months and some of these are played by big name DJ’s on Ibiza.

Joe Nathan at Amsterdam Dance Event 2017


While things have been quiet on this website, there’s a good reason:Joe Nathan has been busy producing music! Initially the music was intended for his own DJ sets, but these productions are now also availble for licensing to record companies. At ADE17 Joe Nathan presented a sampler with 13 tracks he produced over the past months. More tracks are in the works too, so keep an ear out. There’s a wide range of genres: from commercial reggaeton to underground techno, from bouncy house to trap. Joe Nathan produces it all and plays it all in his DJ sets.

Update 2015

Geen nieuws, goed nieuws? Niet helemaal, maar niet al het nieuws heeft de website gehaald (ook wegens drukke werkzaamheden voor Pinball Magazine). In vogelvlucht:

  • Joe Nathan draait vrijwel elk weekend in Kosten Koper Utrecht
  • Joe Nathan draait regelmatig op bedrijfs- en prive-feesten. De Muziek op Maat formule werkt al jaren en levert keer op keer top feesten op!
  • Na een paar jaar afwezigheid heeft Joe Nathan weer in Zussen Utrecht gedraaid. De nieuwe muzikale richting van Zussen (Funky) bevalt Joe Nathan goed.
  • Havana Utrecht, waar Joe Nathan tot 2 jaar geleden als vaste DJ draaide en waar toen 3 weekenddagen per week een rij van 50 meter voor de deur had staan, bestaat niet meer. Je mag natuurlijk niet roepen dat dat enigszins gerelateerd is aan het vertrek van Joe Nathan, maar als bezoekers, portiers en personeel gelooft mogen worden was het toen veel gezelliger en drukker. Na 2 jaar aanmodderen koos de verpachter eieren voor zijn geld en verkocht de locatie. Er zit inmiddels een restaurant. Toch jammer.
  • Joe Nathan heeft een mashup gemaakt rond een track van Jody Watley. Reactie van Jody Watley volgens haar management, “She loves it!” Nu kijken of er officieel iets mee kan gedaan worden.
  • Er liggen zeker 20 basis opzetjes voor nieuwe tracks te wachten op verdere uitwerking. Zolang Pinball Magazine No. 3 niet af is staat Joe zichzelf niet toe om hier aan te werken, anders komt dat blad nooit af. Maar vanaf oktober is er weer tijd voor muziek maken 🙂
