Real Name:
Klaas Douwes
Klaz* is the recording moniker of Klaas Douwes, born in 1987 in Drachten, the Netherlands. He creates odd, but enjoyable experimental soundscapes incorporating electronica, guitar, natural and unnatural sounds.

There's a ficticious back story to the name of this pseudo-collective: "Klaz* is derived from the name of Bijkian cosmonaut Kowax Laz. He was the first Bijkian to make far exploratory expeditions into space and he received all military honours which a person can get, because of his pioneering work with the Bijkian army. We feel like musical pioneers. With our music we not only want to appeal to the Bijkians on Bijk, but also to Bijkians on earth and to your people (who we want to introduce to Bijk with our music). We try to be different from other Bijkian musicians. Thats why we used the name of Kowax Laz, a Bijkian who was completely different from other Bijkians."
