DJ & Production
Playing clubs, private parties, festivals and other venues. Whether by playing disco at Nachtcollege, playing hip-hop at BED Rotterdam (now NORA) or playing slow jams at a private party (with Mark Rutte in attendance). You learn the most by playing at a variety of different clubs and audiences, rarely sticking to ‘one flavor’ or genre. I’m continuously trying to find a sound that ties all these different places together by playing timeless and tasteful music.
