Playing the drums laid the foundation for his love for rhythm and beats and turned out to be a solid base for his career. Which started with a helping hand from Erick E and after that he has shared agencies with Hardwell, Rehab, Vato Gonzalez and Nicky Romero. When he produced ‘Getcha Damn Hands Up’ co-produced by Tony Verdult, he reached #1 in the Dance Tunes Top 100 chart and #8 in the Beatport charts, receiving tremendous support from DJ’s such as Bob Sinclar, Fedde Le Grand and Roger Sanchez.

Through the years he gets impressive support from colleagues in the industry and the word of his performance spread to well-known venues as Jimmy Woo (Amsterdam), The Sand (Amsterdam), Escape (Amsterdam) and Now & Wow (Rotterdam). His love for DJ-ing and teaching others how to spin the decks is something he inspiringly demonstrates as a certified trainer at the Pioneer DJ School.
The gathered knowledge and skills he has for many different styles and his living and breathing for house music, has shaped his new groovy garage bass sound. With this sound he attacks the global dancefloors and 2015 is his biggest year yet.
