“Changing your life or lifestyle is a goal you have to follow with your heart, which is kind of what I’m all about,” Jan Morel tells us. And when you look at the Dutchman’s career, you’ll understand why. Morel is one of the world’s leading recording studio designers, and in the words of Sinatra (almost): he did it his way. Currently working with the biggest names in Electronic Dance Music - David Guetta, Hardwell, Nicky Romero, and Martin Garrix, to name a few – it’s been an interesting evolution.
“I have a very close contact with the Genelec distributor (in Holland), and I was selling a lot of the 8000 Series Genelecs, and then I got Hardwell on the 1000 Series Genelecs, and it was the start of an explosion,” Morel enthuses.
“Genelec hadn’t sold the huge 7073 subwoofer before in Holland, so that was a big thing. And those big Genelecs, I had no previous experience with at the time. So I was talking to Hardwell, and he had a deal with another leading loudspeaker brand, and could have had a set for free, but I showed him the Genelecs, and there was no question in his or my mind; we started it rolling right there.
“It’s not only low fatigue you get with Genelecs; any Genelec monitors can go soft, but still provide you with full dynamics. At a low level, they will give you the whole sonic image, which does not happen with many speakers. And for this kind of (EDM) setup, you need the power, so that’s what we went for.”
