Early life[edit | hide | edit source]

Helderman was born in Almere, Netherlands. When he was 18 years old, he began planning and designing websites. As a teenager, he discovered his passion for DJ’ing while doing graphic design for festivals. Afterwards, he quickly went from editing after movies to producing his own songs.[3]

Music career[edit | hide | edit source]

His first residency was at Club Hardersplaza in Harderwijk Holland back in 2008. In October 2009, he released his remix of the song “Took The Night” by Chelley on Spinnin’ Records which turned out to be his breakthrough track in Holland as well as other parts of the world. Thereafter he toured Brazil, Morocco, Australia and Asia.

Since his release of “Make The Crowd Go” on Spinnin' records, his music was picked up by artists like Tiesto and Hardwell. In January 2013 he was part of the Tiesto Club Live College invasion alongside Tiesto, Tommy Trash and Quintino. In that same year he worked together with DJs Tiësto and Quintino to produce the anthem of Ultra Music Festival.[4]
