Sander Van Doorn’s groundbreaking EDM hit ‘Joyenergizer’ turns 6 years old

A true dance music legend, Dutch DJ and producer Sander Van Doorn is best known for his huge trance-based hits, but the Doorn Records founder has also displayed his dynamic diversity as an artist in recent times, branching out into various sub-genres, including big-room, and more house-led sounds. On this day in 2013, he released one of his most iconic tracks of all time, the sensational ‘Joyenergizer‘, which dropped on iconic imprint, Spinnin’ Records.

Packed with his typically vibrant sound, the release amassed support from a wealth of names across the industry, and was released at the start of 2013, a year deemed by many as the ‘golden age’ for modern EDM. With various other classics released during the year, including Sebastian Ingrosso‘s ‘Reload‘, ‘Wake Me Up‘ by Avicii, and ‘Animals‘ by Martin Garrix, it’s tough to argue against such a case.

With all these super-hits turning 6 years old this year, you can relive the one that kickstarted the year in style. This is Sander van Doorn’s ‘Joyenergizer’!
