I was Born in 1988 .
I got into the Gabber scene in 1999.

I first listened early rave. After a few years I decided to focus on terrorcore and speedcore.
I started producing in 2001.
Then I got into the 2000s frenchcore and UKcore as we called it.
I got to play regularly at parties since 2006.
I discovered tekno, hardfloor in late 2000s, I listened some breakcore.
In 2008, I had a short period of listening death metal, followed by acid techno. Then started my journey into the world of psychedelic trance.
I started first with full on but quickly delved into the more advanced hypnosys provided by dark and forest psy.

I returned to hardcore in the early 2010s.
I listened and produced a slower type of hardcore with lots of industrial and psychedelic influences.
After 2012 my Dj appearances became very rare.
In the late 2010s, I shortly returned to producing faster hardcore with an experimental orientation.
Around early 2020s I decided to minimize time spent producing. I still collect and explore lots of sounds.

Ever since I got into hardcore gabber in 1999, music obviously had a permanent presence in my life. Ive always continued searching new, experimental sounds, reflecting my mindset and other experiences at the time.
One thing Ive always opposed, is music that is too predictable, commoditized.

My favourite track is Vitrine.
It has the most "minimal"-like approach.
Because there is a lot of emphasis on percussive elements, and on reverb, which give these percussive sounds a more "spacey" vibe. Meanwhile, the kick continues...

Stygma's side is my favourite.

Quite a lot in the same vein as Mortician. But with less horror samples, and an even dirtier, slimy sound. Deliciously distorted and downtuned guitars, especially the bass. Pushing the limits of dirty, guttural, distorted-bass grind & death metal.
