Jaaps parents failed miserably at one thing, music. Years and years of Jaap being exposed to horrifying (Dutch language) music, poor Jaap discoverd electronic music years later… As of then Jaap found his passion. He listened to sets, mix cd's and radio recordings of Tiësto, Carl Cox, Sven Väth, Sasha, John Digweed, everything he could get his hands on. Not much later he started buying vinyl, and this time no vinyl with Dutch music!
Nowadays the world is getting to know his music… For example by guestmixes in numerous broadcast on Radio 538 (the number 1 radiostation in The Netherlands), guestmixes in Dennis Ruyers Dance Department, Tiësto's Club Life and by numerous gigs across the world including Holland, Mauritius, Germany and Spain (Ibiza).
His productions (original tracks, remixes, bootlegs) played lots of times by the world's big time dj's. Artists like Richie Hawtin, Sasha, John Digweed, Tiësto, Hernan Cattaneo, Dave Seaman and Jody Wisternoff (Way Out West) are playing Jaaps productions over and over again and are dying to play his new stuff every time.
The styles/genres that Jaap plays, varies every gig, depending on the gig and crowd. Sometimes he plays very deep with deephouse and minimal, other times he treats the crowd with a more uplifting or raw sounding set. It all depends on the evening…
