Peter’s musical career started at the age of 12 when he got a small organ. Shortly after that, he bought his first synthesizer and started composing his own tracks. He got involved in several bands, but soon he realized his skills and talent would lead him to composing and producing music on his own. Influenced by such artists as Depeche Mode and Jean Michel Jarre, as well as the thriving Belgian club scene, Peter started making dance music. His first release was titled “Plato”, an ambient album.
He then met manager Stefan Wuyts, the founder of A&S Productions, who immediately noticed Peter’s exceptional talent. His first release on A&S was Heliac. The track was highly successful in clubs all over Europe.
Many will know Peter as one of the leading forces behind successful dance formation Lasgo. Together with lead singer Evy and all-round keyboard player David Vervoort, they tour the world, bringing such hits as “Something / Alone / Pray / Surrender / All Night Long”. Total sales of Lasgo amount to 1 million units. The group is big all over Europe, as well as in the States. He also produced most of the tracks from the latest Ian Van Dahl album which is signed in more than 60 countries…
These are however just 2 of the many projects Peter contributes to. He has been working with many artists such as DJ Philip, Des Mitchell and Jimmy Goldschmitz to write tracks that are now known as classic club anthems. Other club projects that carry Peter’s distinct sound are Abnea, Heliac, Outrowz, Groovewatchers………
It is clear Peter has always had an appetite for chart-sensitive tracks with international hit-potential. One of his earlier projects was Astroline. This project has achieved considerable success, both in Belgium as well as internationally.
On top of this, Peter’s career as a DJ is taking off quickly. His DJ sets at …, … and … have set a standard for others to follow.
In between writing his own music, DJ’ing and his favourite hobby scuba diving, he also found the time to remix many international hits, such as Vincent de Moor’s Eternity, several Ian Van Dahl and Milk Inc tracks, as well as U R My Love, a track by Kate Ryan and The One, a fabulous track by Dee Dee. Further artists he has remixed are Delirium, Atomic Kitten, Driftwood, Zornik, Praga Khan and many others.
Both with remixes and with his own songs, Peter is determined to continue to surprise us with exciting dance tracks!
