Also in 1989: the first Timemachine in the Melkweg, in cooperation with his brother Claes. The Timemachine is a collection of many parties in one, in which every Timegate has it's own music style, decor and atmosphere. In Timegate 1 (the largest room) dj Per always played his records from 1 to 5 o'clock, thus being the main dj on every edition of this legendary event. The Timemachine is now in rest after more then 50 editions in 10 years. There have been landings in Zurich (Rote Fabrik 8-9-1990), Bruxelles (Halles de Schaerbeek 25-09-1993), Cambridge (Junction 23-07-1994), Terschelling (Oerol festival 9,10,11-06-1994) and in The Hague (Paard 11-10-1997).
The Timemachine Clubnights started of as a series of summer Sunday nights in the Melkweg, as a stage for national and international guest dj's, hosted by Per. The first summer in 1994 brought guests like Sven Vath (D), Joost v. Bellen, Remy and Eddy de Clercq. In 1995 guests included Sasha (UK), Carl Cox (UK), Juan Atkins (USA), Jens Mahlstedt (D), Toby (Jap) and Carlijn. The last series was in 1996, with dj's Paul v. Dijk (D), Ian Ossia (UK), Sister Bliss (UK), Koenie (Blg), Eva and a solo night with dj Per.
Dj Per has had his own radio-shows on Radio 100 (Amsterdam illegal Radio) and AFM (Amsterdam legal Kabel Radio) and now travels from one show to the other (538, ID&T-radio etc) to present his own mixture of uplifting progressive tunes.
As dj Per, the man has played on all major raves, clubs and parties all around the Netherlands. In all his years as a dj he has visited many countries in the world like Israel, Hongarije, Luxembourg, Spain (incl. Ibiza), Zwitserland , United Kingdom and many others. Many people in the Netherlands consider him to be the father of progressive in Holland. But Per has also played an important role in the development of house-parties in France, where he played very regularly all over the country for many years in the early 90's.
Dj Per has released four mixed CD's in the years '94, '95, '96 and '97 under the name Per's Paradise with ID & T Holland. Called after his clubnight in Mazzo with the same name early 90's. They give an impression of his specific style through the years, and booklets with pictures, a poster with all the flyers and a early-morning CD were thrown in to complete the packages. In 1999 a Timemachine 4CD was released (3 music-cd's and a cd-rom) to celebrate the 10 year excistence of Timemachine, all compiled and produced by Per. There was one record release in '90 on Subway Records from Belgium called 'Quote Unquote' with Claes, and one with Sander Kleinenberg as 'Rails Inc' on Deal Records called 'Clearcut' (1996).
Besides all this party stuff, Per appeared in most leading magazines, papers, tv and radio shows in Holland, and has contributed to many Dutch books handling topics like XTC or the history of the house movement (surprise, surprise). Even a lecture at the Erasmus University happened once.
There was also an appearance as a guest at an arranged dinner table in the theatre piece (sort of) "Aan Tafel", with Jolien Wanninkhof, Joy Hoes en Gusta Geleijnse, directed by Lidy Six, in Frascati in Amsterdam in may '96.
As writing is concerned, for 2 years he has written CD reviews in the Dutch Time-Out magazine, and wrote a monthly column in Samson All Areas, a magazine with the emphasis on live-music in the broadest sense of the word (‘96-’97).
