1. Dutch keyboard wizard Elisabeth Esselink, aka SOLEX is described in as many variations as her music. She’s an indie pop singer / songwriter / sample artist, or is she? Esselink’s haunting vocals combined with a varied array of found sounds (some of ’em found in the second-hand record shop she runs) recall few other experimental/pop crossovers. Solex inventive musical endeavours (with for example the Maarten Altena Ensemble) showcase a vocal presence (and a keen sense of humor) you won’t find elsewhere.
The Solex live show has evolved into a thing of extraordinary dexterity, merging the idiosyncrasies of her albums with the immediacy of a live band. In the past she played The Lowlands Festival, SxSW, Popkomm, CMJ, Noorderslag, Les Printemps de Bourges, Roskilde, toured Japan, Europe, Iceland, South America, the United States, done six Peel Sessions, and met lots of nice people.
Since the “Laughing stock of Indie rock” album she’s mainly been playing live with Marit de Loos (on drums).

So, with common strength, and with young head, they were started to write music…In the genre of handzup and hardstyle, they were “bring down the house” under the Solex vs. Jotto, Cookie Boyz and The Degenerated Monkeys name. 3 years later, after the big successes, was a big arose of fission, because both children are started to take his first stepps in his separate road…
