His obsession made him search his inner self for something unique. Something he only could find on his own.

His quest started when he was seven. He fell in love with the sound of the sax being influenced by listening to the twelve inch records of Dave Brabeck, which his father owned. After consulting a music instructor, he was advised to start with the flute to learn the fundamentals of the winds and music theory.At the age of fourteen he obtained his first sax. He played for the school orchestra and for various local concerts learning more and more every time.

Being influenced from the booming electronic music era, and DJs’ such as John Digweed, Sasha and Paul Van Dyk he played at more and more parties practicing his dj skills.

In the mean time dPens’ other passion were sports. From a young age he was enrolled in a variety of sports such as karate (shotokan), kick boxing, basketball, track and field.
