About Me

Producer from Groningen, Netherlands.

I had composed music on the piano (and later using a keyboard and a sequencer) for years, but took on production in 2015. The next year, i began sharing my music online.

Instruments I play

Piano.

Software I Use

Mainly Reason, but sometimes cheap/free DAWs to give myself restrictions on purpose. I believe that limitation can lead to creativity.

Hardware I Use

Korg Minilogue, cheap yet bulky analog synth.

Listening To Right Now

Mainly listening to the artists mentioned in the "My Influences" paragraph, otherwise i look for the more obscure and underappreciated stuff.

10 Favourite Albums

The first three Prodigy albums, Ambient Works 85-92, have listened to lots of stuff but few electronic albums are interesting to me except those ones. Outside of electronic music i like Pink Floyds early work a lot.

My Influences / Fav Artists

Most of my early music was heavily influenced by Drum & Bass artists such as Noisia and Black Sun Empire, but it was also influenced by the sheer rawness of The Prodigy and the intricacy of Aphex Twin, even before i started producing music digitally. Over the years i've been trying to not get influenced by other artists (just appreciate their music), and cultivate my very own sound.

My Music Sounds Like

Currently, it's somewhere between Breakbeat, Drum & Bass and Techno, but still a bit different than one would imagine. Hard dance music but with my own inflections and more room for depth and musicality.
