Interview: Joop, Like The Perfume But Not Really

From The Editor: Joop, often stylized with capital letters, is the real name and stage name of disc jockey and producer from The Netherlands. Though, we are sure he smells good all the time, he is not to be confused with perfume: Joop! The contemporary clothing and cosmetics company founded as a designer label by German Fashion Designer Wolfgang Joop. Just at the puberty-stricken age of thirteen, Joop started playing music in a youth community where he taught himself how to mix with vinyls and we find that rather amazing. Years later, he is the same Joop. Just taller.
