What's exciting about house music: music with four on the floor beats and repetitive
musical themes and melodies. Sometimes it's quite difficult to describe what this world is all about,
except when it's 2 am and you're standing in the middle of a dancefloor seeing sweaty, smiling faces
lighted by flashing lights in a place covered in fog. This is my world and I love that music.

For me, complete addiction to dance music happened during ’95 and ’96; the years which saw
great bands like Underworld and Leftfield emerging. At present I'm still inspired by their sound and that
time as well as the contemporary Progressive house scene which is still evolving in new, exciting directions.

DJ's like John Digweed and producers like James Holden manage to
constantly renew the scene and are therefore a big infulence on me.
My first break came when I was invited by Junkie XL to play along on his dutch tour in '99. So one of
my very first gigs was at a sold out Melkweg, Amsterdam where, needless to say, my nerves were
doing overtime. From that moment on, things really started to move.

Having lived in San Francisco, Boston, Den Haag and Rotterdam, I finally ended up
in Amsterdam where I feel I can make that contribution. Exciting music, deep pounding
grooves, yet warm and soulfull with an intriguing touch. For me, that's what clubbing is all about.
