After winning ‘The Dutch DMC Championships’, in 1989, Erick was the official Dutch representative during the World Championships at The Royal Albert Hall in London. He fell in love with a new music genre and consequently made considerable contributions to the upcoming Dutch house culture,[no citations needed here] creating for example house classics such as ‘Pancake-Don’t Turn Your Back’, released on record label WORK.
Erick established his name as a DJ more firmly during the mid-nineties, landing the Saturday residency at the Amsterdam Club RoXY. There, his SWET nights caused long waiting lines at the door and it pushed Erick’s popularity to new heights.[no citations needed here] He frequently graced the decks at the main stages of large festivals such as ‘Dance Valley, ‘Sensation’ (international residency), ‘Mysteryland’, ‘Day At The Park’ and ‘Extrema Outdoor’. International clubs such as NOW & WOW Rotterdam, Amnesia Ibiza, Rex Paris and Catwalk Barcelona invited him repeatedly, knowing Erick would deliver a full house.
Erick won the people’s vote and has been on the number one spot at ‘DJGuide.nl’ for the last 3 consecutive years.
In 2010, DJ performances had changed drastically and Eerdhuizen found himself longing for a different approach. A strong desire to return to a basis, founded at Club RoXY, kept growing. He craved for longer sets (‘all nighters’) and a more intimate playground, where he could perform a mix of ‘warm tech-house’ and ‘danceable techno’.[no citations needed here]
The introduction of E5H – meaning Erick E 5 Hours – gave him the chance to control the night from the first until the very last record played. He took gigs at E5H gigs at the ‘Amsterdam Sugar Factory, Bunker NDSM and Westerunie’. The E5H-tour started at smaller venues and pop stages, playing ‘De Effenaar Eindhoven, Paard van Troje The Hague, Mezz Breda and Patronaat Haarlem’.[no citations needed here]
