"It is extremely fascinating that you can change a person's state of mind through music. You can take people along in an illusion, to a universe of energy and positive vibes of solidarity. People that go to a party separately become a unity, like a rainbow. The interaction of the grooves, the positive vibes and the people, could possibly lead to a peaceful society. Even if it is just for a little while. This continues to inspire me."
Being brought up in a musical surrounding it seemed to be obvious that he, whenever he could, was always the one to take care of the music. When turning tables became more than a hobby, he instinctively named himself Zoë Noa, which meant as much as "Life" (Zoë) and "Rescuer of life" (Noa).
He started his DJ career in The Hague and organized parties over there and in Rotterdam. When he got a part in the musical Bubbling Brown Sugar he moved to Amsterdam. Once there, it soon became obvious what a musically talented person he was. With his groovy beats, he regularly let clubs such as Hotel Arena, Escape, Milky Way, Sinners, supperclub, Seymour Likely and Havana's burst from their joints. The large audience got to know him on the Players Inc. Parties, the celebrations of Rush Lift Off, Wild Life, Eve and the Red Bull Full Moon Parties. The crowning sensation was the invitation to play at the Millennium celebration at The Metropolis, one of his personal highlights.
In addition to his big passion for the turntable, he appeared in various radio- and television shows and worked at video clips of, among others, Glazze, Twentyfourseven, Paul Elstak, Brainpower and Deff Rymes. His desire for innovation and quality led to the cooperation with Hans Dulfer, Kees ten Dam (Marco Borsato), Martino (Massada), Jazzy D. (F.G.E.) and Rafaela. As "The Future Groove Express", with Zoë behind the turntables, they did a very successful Dutch tour, lasting 18 months.
Across the borders he also didn't go unnoticed. Invitations were received from clubs and parties from Switzerland, France, England, Israel, Bulgaria, Belgium and Bangkok. He worked together with national and international top DJís like Erick E, Marcello, Robin Albers (Jaydee), Brian S., Tom De Neef, the Frenchman Bob Sinclair and Funk D'Void. A peaceful alliance with the USA was enhanced through Jason Jinx, The Soulproviders and David Morales.
His musical and personal versatility resulted this year to some recordings of his own. With an enormous drive, feeling for timing, subtle moods and perfection he creates a sound in his own studio which is an absolute addition to the house scene. With the track 'Life Remains The Same' Zoë Noa now debuts on the seventh supperclub CD. Surprisingly with a perfect mix of urban, pop and lounge with an Arabic touch.

Alan Luna was born in Haarlem, The Netherlands, in 1974. His intense love for house-music started right at the end of the eighties when he produced his first ever mix-tapes packed with the coolest US House sounds. The funny thing was that he put this tape together with two old tape decks and two screwdrivers and not with 2 turntables!
After getting this first taste of mixing his music, he started playing for friends and family. In 1994 he started playing small parties and started to really move the crowds. Because of his eclectic but distinctively intensely pure style he instantly became popular with the more knowledgeable Amsterdam crowds. In 1999 he founded the party organization Choque, together with San Proper. They had their residency at club Mazzo, Amsterdam for over 2 years. Later they started throwing parties in different locations and this is something Choque still does today!
In 2000 he was asked to play at supperclub where he still plays a lot. He now also has a residency at the supperclub cruise. He really loves playing there because he can play all the different styles of music he loves...
In 2003 he also became involved in mixing and compiling the highly acclaimed supperclub albums. In that same year he remixed Water feat. Stefania - A Ra (Alan Luna Remix) for the supperclub presents rome album. In 2005 he produced Tevlon - 'Mi Propria Vida' and 'The Problem' together with Mark den Hartog @ Zownd. These tracks feature on supperclub presents 'One World' and Supperclub presents 'The End'.
For over 10 years Alan Luna has been doing what he loves to do best and it surely paid of; people book him worldwide and are always satisfied. This is why he played events like HQ, Melkweg, Dance Valley, Impulz and 4 Elements, venues like Paradiso and Melkweg and cities like Tel Aviv, Rome, Montpellier, Moskou, Koln, Antwerp and many, many more....

Over the years Lin developed her own style. Her sound is best described as a hypnotizing, but funky mix between House, Techno and Minimal. Lin's deejay sets are energetic, and a perfect harmony between individual tracks, the atmosphere itself and her audience.
As a producer Lin had her first release "Everyday of my Life"at the well known Australian label Bamboo (www.bamboomusic.org) in 2005. Lin was the first female artist they signed and her track was played by deejays such as Roger Sanchez.
In 2006 Lin started producing together with Devoice which resulted in her second release "Sous Marine" on a new digital Tech House label Body Condition in November 2007. Lin's third release "Escape from Escape" is planned in 2008.
At the moment Lin is creating new tracks and bringing her deejay career to a higher level with great enthusiasm.
Lin was born and raised in Amstelveen, a suburbe of Amsterdam (The Netherlands). At the age of five she went to music school, where she discoverd music and the magic of it. At the age of ten, Lin started taking ballet and jazz dance classes and for a long time it was her passion. She danced as a semi-professional, until she started studying marketing & public relations at the University.
Lin moved to Amsterdam for her studies and started clubbing. She got inspired by House music and the intensity of beats and melodies in the legendary club called "Roxy". She became fascinated by the deejays behind the decks and she wanted to do it herself. Lin started spinning on Saturday nights in Palladium, Amsterdam. She had a natural talent to fill the dance floor and it became so srious that she made a career out of it.
After completing her studies in marketing & public relations, Lin became a professional deejay in 2002. In January 2003 she met DJ Jezz (a rookie just as Lin) and started spinning together. They called themselves "Jezz-Y-Lin". In April 2003 they made it to the finals of "Thirst", a deejay contest organized by Heineken and came second.
As a result they got gigs at "Dance Valley" and "Mysteryland". After a year of experience and spinning, "Jezz-Y-Lin"split up in 2004. Lin wanted to develop a career of her own. She preformed at "Sensation White" in 2005-2007 and at "Dance Valley" in 2007.
She played in several other countries like Luxembourg, Greece, Turkey, Macedonia and Indonesia. In 2007 Lin received an award for being the most sexy DJ in Holland.
