My interest in music already started when I was a little kid. Since the mid 80's I'm addicted to music and since the early 90's I started to collect CD's and records.

From September 1993 until January 2011 I worked for a local radio station in the south of the Netherlands called 'Siris Radio'. First the show was called 'Bassline', but after a few years we decided to name the show 'Dancemania'. 'Dancemania' is a weekly show where all kinds of electronic dance music (such as house, club music, progressive and trance) is being played. Early 2011, after 17,5 years of being a radio DJ, I decided to stop making radio.

I also worked as a DJ in local bars / clubs for over 10 years, but in the summer of 2008 I decided to stop with DJ-ing because the lack of time.

From July 2001 to July 2010 I also worked for Trance.nu as a contributor. I wrote news-items, party reviews, track / album reviews, but most people might know me because of the many interviews that I've done for the website (plus for our radio show as well). In the last couple of years I did interviews with lot of well known DJs and producers such as:

Ferry Corsten (System F / Gouryella),
Paul van Dyk,

Markus Schulz,
Geert Huinink,
Bart Claessen,
Leon Bolier,

Laurent Véronnez (L-Vee / Airwave),
Arnej,
Richard Durand,

Gabriel & Dresden,
Mark Norman,
Sander Kleinenberg,
André Tanneberger (ATB),
Ben Liebrand,
Marcel Woods,
Phynn,
Ralph Barendse (Ralphie B / First State),
Menno de Jong,
Paul Moelands (Re:Locate / Octagen),
Rank 1,
Marco V,
M.I.K.E. (Push / Plastic Boy),
Benjamin Bates,
Jonas Steur (Estuera),
Marcus Schössow,

Tom Harding,
Joris van der Straten (C-Quence),
Rafaël Frost,

and many, many others.

Besides these published interviews, I did interviews as well for radio and my music vlog with people such as Darude, Felix, Cosmic Gate, Dim3nsion, Solis & Sean Truby, Pierre Pienaar, Paul Grundman and many others.

And last but not least, since November 2004 I work at Dance Therapy Productions, which is the management company of Ferry Corsten. I'm taking care of social media and everything regarding Ferry's weekly radio show Corsten's Countdown amongst other things. From July 2007 to September 2015 I worked for his label Flashover Recordings as well.

In August 2017 I started a music vlog, called Muzikxpress. Every week I'm trying to post a vlog about a certain track, artist, a music landmark, or an interview.

RIP Dolores O'Riordan :( Loved the early stuff of "The Cranberries", tracks such as "Linger", "Ode To My Family" and of course "Zombie". But also "Promises" and "Salvation". Thanks for the great music.
