Biography

The facts:

Real name: Dennis Koehoorn
DOB: October 3rd, 1982
Hometown: Emmeloord, The Netherlands

The story:

At the age of 14, Dennis got interested in house music, especially gabber (hardcore).
From a friend at school, he got a piece of software called Impulse Tracker for MS-DOS.
The program came with some (crappy) samples, but Dennis started to (attempt to) make music with this. He also gave it to his best buddy (nowadays known as Abject/Frontliner and they both started to create ‘music’.

After a while, Dennis started learning more and different techniques about producing and after the gabber era had (sort of) died, both Dennis and Barry started making trance music. This came with more complex melody and basslines ofcourse.
The response was great, in the local disco two tracks from them were played! The rush was enormous and inspired and motivated them both to continue producing, and trying to get to higher levels!

A new software tool was out on the market, Fruity Loops, and also a new style of music started to grow. This style was called hardstyle, and it still is Dennis’ favourite style of housemusic today. He got so interested in it, that he decided to quit producing trance/clubby tracks and go for the hardstyle sound!

This resulted in his first release in september 2004, on the Confusion Records label, called Scope - Shimmy Shaker.
This vinyl sold pretty well and became quite popular on the dancefloors of (big) parties, since it was played by Deepack, Super Marco May, Lady Tom and some other big jocks on parties like Q-Base and Hardbass. It was also compiled on some CD’s, for example the CD Scantraxx Vol.2.
