Born in the Netherlands. Raised by two music loving parents. Having an artistic, technical and curious mindset that drives me. Working in the music industry with more than 15 years of professional experience on different fields like live technique/mixing, studio technique/recordings, music production, performing and software development. As far as I know there was music in my life. One way, or the other.

As a child I learned mixing by taping and cutting cassettetapes of my parents. Once I walked away from the visit at my grand parents to one of their neighbors Ben Liebrand, and asked him everything about his work and studio. For mixing and in some ways artistic he is still one of the examples for me. MTV Party zone was almost the only TV I watched.

As a teenager I DJ’ed a couple of years but I decided to focus more on the studio work and build my first studio. I released some records on hardcore labels, did pre- and post productions. Worked as a sound technician, or engineer for radio shows and concerts. After that I worked a couple of years in the software industry for security and Internet companies but one day I stood up in the office and decided to exchange The code applications for my favorite DAW’s and hardware. I had put myself the goal to get myself an expert in the field of music, music production and music technology. From 2011 I decided to go full on this. I started producing and mixing again with a side job at Doornroosje as a dance technician. Doing performances and collaborations with other artists.

Since 2017 I’m full focused on music production, remixing, studio work like mixing, pre- and post production, performing, hosting workshops and sometimes development for music software. I’m working from my studio in one of the finest (electronic) music cities of the Netherlands, Nijmegen. With her great venues and festivals this city is delivering and breathing music in a very wide range from experimental, contemporary classical, jazz, world music, rock and luckily a lot of electronic music. It’s great to work and live in such a wonderful city as the center point of where it happens.

Releasing on labels like Rige Entertainment, Prescribed Trax, Uptempo Hardcore Records, Kobalt Music and Mecanik Records.

Mecanik Records is one of the two labels I run. The label is delivering mostly hard, industrial techno. Beside Mecanik Records there is RAM IO Music. That can be seen as my most personal outlet for music and public playground and is not bounded to a genre specific.

Artistic production approach:

As an artist/producer I prefer working from intuition when it comes to expression, despite my love for modern technologies. Technology is a wonderful tool which I love for the innovative possibilities along side analogue gear. I think that the sweet spot exists in best of both worlds. That’s one of the reasons I embraced a hybrid approach on production with hardware and software. Capturing the feel in music while talking with the machines. Blending pure characteristic sounds of analogue gear and the creative possibilities of digital, while keeping the heart and soul of the music alive.
