BACKGROUND ——————————————————————————————-

When did you first get in contact with house/techno?
I think I was around 6-years-old, my parents gave me a mix CD with House and Gabber music. I think it was a compilation from the TV series Power Rangers.

What music did you grew up with?
Mostly Top 40, although my Dad and Mom also listened to Stevie Wonder a lot!

Whats your first song related memory?
I think that must be too unlimited –no limit

What was the first record that you bought?
My first vinyl is Floorplan – Funky Souls.

At the moment it is Technotronic – Pump Up The Jam


INFLUENCES ——————————————————————————————-

What music do you listen when you wake up?
Mostly Bonobo or Global Communication.

What do you listen to when you are on the bike or on your car?
I try not to listen to music when I am travelling by bike. I like the sound of the environment, and I am pretty bad in traffic, so when I cycle with my headphones in I can be a danger to the people around me. 😉

Whats your favourite song at the moment?
I don’t have a favourite song, it really depends on my mood. It could be anything from rock to soul.

Whats your favourite album and artist at the moment?
I am really digging the new KiNK album on Macro Recordings.

What’s your favourite party/festival and why?
I have to go with the club events in Trouw, the soundsystem, atmosphere and crowd make it a stellar combination.

Paradigm Festival in Groningen.

Whats your first memorable gig?
I can’t choose, so I must go with my first time in Trouw and a small rave(KNUS) in a student flat on Queens Night a couple of years ago.
