Biography

f it’s for random squat party or traveling 1000’s of miles to a festival in a beautiful remote paradise, there’s no place Eric loves to spend his time more then on a dancefloor full of smiling happy faces and intense energy build ups.
As early as ‘94 he has been involved in the Dutch psytrance scene. Whether he was organizing parties, dj’ing or just lurking around and having fun, this is where Liftshift found his bliss and space for developing his artistic needs.

Growing up in a rich musical environment, Bijl started playing guitar at the age of 10.

In his adolescence he played in various bands varying from Metal to Jazz performance.
This is where his love for performing music live on stage started to take shape.
When Eric discovered Goa trance in ‘94 he took a leap from playing in bands to spinning records. Since the familiarity with psychedelic trance was on a low level still, Eric and his mates started organizing small underground events as early as ‘96, which didn’t just attract many people form all colors and creeds but raised a huge enthusiasm for the music that had never been heard by many.

As everything keeps on growing and bending into new directions and undiscovered territory, in 2003 it was time to get into the studio and to start producing his own tunes.
Although he has been releasing tracks as early as 2005 on labels like Sonic dragon, Flow records, Plusquam and Echoes, Eric decided that he needed to push the quality of production to a higher and massive level in order to satisfy his eagerness to rock dance-floors on a global scale. In 2008 Bijl decided to move to Portugal away from Amsterdam, away from distractions, away from it all!
