Ernesto vs. Bastian

Ernesto vs. Bastian

Dutch trance group.
The combination of a DJ with ten years experience (Ernesto van der Meij) and a equally experienced producer (Edwin Koelewijn) resulted in 2001 in the Dutch duo Ernesto vs. Bastian. Their style is trance and progressive and even a bit of pop. Their sound is influenced by everyone from Depeche Mode, Kraftwerk and the Pet Shop Boys to early 80s soul, disco and funk. They hosted their own show at the web radio station
Edwin Koelewijn continued the project under this name for a while after Ernesto left the group in 2011.

In 2004 Ernesto and Bastian wanted to bring their music to the stage and formed a band-like live-act. In the act that has developed from this, DJ Ernesto forms the base (playing instrumental tracks as well as beats and loops on his turntables) supported by the synths played by Bastian, the acoustic percussion and drums of Gerrie Spaansen and the singing of MC Vika Kova.
