The history of the MixCases

The MixCase series started in 2011, as Somertijd Weekend Dance Mix.
The Somertijd Weekend Dance Mix is a weekly recurring part of the radio program Somertijd by Rob van Someren. It will be broadcast on Friday afternoon immediately after the 6:00 pm news. A Somertijd Weekend Dance Mix is a compilation of various danceable hits in a mix of a maximum of 6 minutes. Anyone who wants to can submit a mix that will be broadcast after a positive review by the editors.

The Somertijd program was broadcast on Radio Veronica until 2014, and moved to Radio 10 in 2014.

In 2019, the 100th MixCase was broadcast. That was a great opportunity for Kees to complete the Saga. In the meantime, there were enough other mixers to take over. The last 25 MixCases have been combined by Kees into a long mix of 3 hours: The XL MixCase.


Isla 106

In March 2020 Kees was approached by famous producer Peter Gelderblom (known from “Waiting 4”, his remix of the song “By The Way” of the “Red Hot Chili Peppers”). Peter had plans to launch a new radio station on Ibiza, Isla 106, by April 2020. This station focuses mainly on Dance Classics and House music. For the Saturday night programming, Peter was still looking for someone who would deliver a weekly mix of an hour. And Kees seemed to be the right person for this. The Saturday evening programming already included Ben Liebrand, Wessel van Diepen (Vengaboys). Dennis Ruyers, Robin Albers (JayDee) and DJ Jean. Big names! The long episodes of the MixCase Saga will be broadcasted every Saturday at 6PM and rerun every Sunday at 3PM. On December 26 2020 the final MixCase was broadcasted on Isla106.

Isla 106

As of September 2020, all MixCases (both the short and the long versions) will also be broadcast on the new internet radio station 24Disco. The long version of the MixCase will be broadcast on Sunday at 8:00PM, and will be rerun on Wednesday at 8PM. On Friday evening at “twee platen over acht”, so around 8:10PM, a short MixCase will be broadcast in the program “Let’s Groove Tonight” with DJ Alexio (Alex van der Sluijs). This program will be repeated on Tuesday evenings at 7PM.

Special Editions

In addition to the regular MixCases, special editions have also been made:

  • MixCase XMas Edition: A special MixCase with only Christmas songs. Aired on the Somertijd-show around Christmas in 2011 and repeated around Christmas in 2012 and 2013. For more info on the MixCase XMas Edition, you can find it here.

  • XL MixCase: MixCases 76 to 100 are consecutive mixes. Thit means: The first track of the new MixCase connects to the last track of the previous one. After the broadcast of the last MixCase in the Somertijd-Show (MixCase 100), Kees mixed the 25 last MixCases together into one long mix. As a bonus, MixCases 61, 18, 31, 74 and 30 (in this order) were mixed in front the extra long mix. This created a nonstop XL MixCase of 500 tracks in exactly 3 hours.
