Ever the allrounder, his  kaleidoscopic palette has allowed him to develop a wide spectrum sound which got him the likes of everyone from Prunk, DJOKO to East end dubs and has been active on labels as diverse as Rawsome Deep, HedZup and elrow. We check in with him as he releases his new EP via PIV…


A track you love to hear on a sunny morning…

Ahhh! So many to choose from haha! But I’ll go for Spotless Mind by Jhene Aiko…

Your perfect breakfast would be…

Oven bread with cream cheese, avocado and argula.  

The most unusual thing I have ever eaten…

Errr, probably the smelly Durian fruit haha…

The dish that reminds me of my childhood

Probably broccoli with rice and a chicken drumstick, which was my father’s signature dish when he didn’t have any inspiration haha.

Who taught you to cook?

Well, my parents for a bit. But mostly myself, that’s why I still mess up quite often haha.

Your favourite restaurant in your home city Amsterdam…

SORA Sapporo Ramen!!

Sherif’s vegetable lasagna was amazing! He isn’t a DJ or musician but he’s in the business and deserves the shoutout for this one.

Bamisoup without a doubt.
