About Me

I am an electronic music producer from the Netherlands. I usually make Drum & Bass music, but to keep it interesting for myself, i try out a lot of other genres too. Sometimes i even try something that can't be classified as any genre.

Instruments I play

Piano, Drums.

Software I Use

I use Reason 10 to make most of my drums, synths and bass sounds. I often arrange my tracks in Reason as well, but most of the time i use LMMS for that. The VST's i use are: Massive (i use it for bass sounds when i don't make them in Reason), Rescue MK2 (for stereo imaging), and Synth1 (i use it for some of my synths), and Reason's stock VSTs (Europa, Malström, Scream 4 etc.), which are surprisingly good.

Hardware I Use

Sometimes i use an old MIDI keyboard to play a few drum patterns or melodies to keep the and imperfect and natural feel to it, but most of it is done digitally. I do have moments where i improvise on the same keyboard to try and come up with new ideas, though.

Listening To Right Now

I'm currently influenced by small details, such as the sounds from outside. But i also go through an old sample pack sometimes and find a sample that gives me an idea for a new track. Sometimes i can already imagine the entire track, just because of that one sample that inspired me. I'm currently listening to The Prodigy a lot, and other artists/bands that make breakbeat music. Also a lot of early-mid 2000's Drum & Bass, especially from the D&B artists in the 'My Influences' section, though every now and then a new Drum & Bass track comes out that actually speaks to me, and inspires me.

My Music Sounds Like

It can be any genre, but you might recognize my style if you've listened to some of my past work. It's difficult to describe.
