18 December 1987 (age 30)
Steven Baan, in the music scene better known as Estiva, was born in 1987 in a small town called Reeuwijk located in the Netherlands.
At a very young age Steven fell in love with melodic trancemusic inspired by the summer. Hearing music from compilations as “In Search Of Sunrise” by Tiesto, made him want to create this kind of music also. His producing skills were improving and early 2006 the wish to get his own music out in the world became reality.
His dream debute came with the release of his Stella EP. This record, released by Enhanced Recordings, was picked up by the biggest DJ’s in the world such as Armin van Buuren. This encouraged Steven to keep on doing his thing in music. From that day on he was determined to show the world his creativeness in music.
It was early 2008 when Tiesto got his hands on Estiva’s collaboration with his friend Marninx ‘Casa Grande’. A dream came true when Tiesto decided to put this track on “In Search of Sunrise 7″.
With his latest Strawberry Fields EP getting the likes of number one dj Armin van Buuren, Tiesto and Ferry Corsten the succes story continues.
