Okay, letโ€™s get into the Ten questions for Yours-Truly!


๐Ÿญ. ๐—ช๐—ต๐—ฒ๐—ฟ๐—ฒ ๐—ฎ๐—ฟ๐—ฒ ๐˜†๐—ผ๐˜‚ ๐—ณ๐—ฟ๐—ผ๐—บ ๐—ฎ๐—ป๐—ฑ ๐˜„๐—ต๐—ฎ๐˜ ๐—ถ๐˜€ ๐˜†๐—ผ๐˜‚๐—ฟ ๐—ต๐—ผ๐—ฏ๐—ฏ๐˜†? I am from Amsterdam, the Netherlands, and my hobbies include creating music, playing soccer, playing games and longboarding

๐Ÿฎ. ๐—›๐—ผ๐˜„ ๐—ฑ๐—ถ๐—ฑ ๐˜†๐—ผ๐˜‚ ๐—ด๐—ฒ๐˜ ๐—ถ๐—ป๐˜๐—ผ ๐— ๐˜‚๐˜€๐—ถ๐—ฐ/๐— ๐˜‚๐˜€๐—ถ๐—ฐ ๐—ฃ๐—ฟ๐—ผ๐—ฑ๐˜‚๐—ฐ๐˜๐—ถ๐—ผ๐—ป? I started playing piano when I was 7 years old. Later at 11 years old I started playing the clarinet. However, after a few years I decided that was not cool enough and taught myself how to play saxophone.

๐Ÿฏ. ๐—ช๐—ต๐—ผ ๐—ฎ๐—ฟ๐—ฒ ๐˜†๐—ผ๐˜‚๐—ฟ ๐—ฏ๐—ถ๐—ด๐—ด๐—ฒ๐˜€๐˜ ๐—ถ๐—ป๐—ณ๐—น๐˜‚๐—ฒ๐—ป๐—ฐ๐—ฒ๐˜€?

My influences for me have been Anderson Paak, Tash sultana and Grammatik. Mainly the jazzy groove from Grammatik is what really drives my type of music. ๐Ÿฐ. ๐—ช๐—ต๐—ฒ๐—ป ๐—ฑ๐—ถ๐—ฑ ๐˜†๐—ผ๐˜‚ ๐—ฏ๐—ฒ๐—ด๐—ถ๐—ป ๐—บ๐—ฎ๐—ธ๐—ถ๐—ป๐—ด ๐—บ๐˜‚๐˜€๐—ถ๐—ฐ? I began making music in the beginning of 2020. I had been improvising on piano for years, but now decided to give it a try in FL-studio to try and create something of my own. ๐Ÿฑ. ๐—ช๐—ต๐—ฎ๐˜ ๐—ฎ๐—ฟ๐—ฒ ๐˜†๐—ผ๐˜‚๐—ฟ ๐—ด๐—ผ๐—ฎ๐—น๐˜€ ๐—ถ๐—ป ๐˜๐—ต๐—ฒ ๐—บ๐˜‚๐˜€๐—ถ๐—ฐ ๐—ถ๐—ป๐—ฑ๐˜‚๐˜€๐˜๐—ฟ๐˜†? My main goal in the music industry is to create music that I enjoy listening to myself, and hopefully it will be for others as well. Of course it would be nice to reach a large audience, which is also why I'm so glad to be a part of NAS.

๐Ÿฒ. ๐—œ๐—ณ ๐˜†๐—ผ๐˜‚ ๐—ฐ๐—ผ๐˜‚๐—น๐—ฑ ๐—ฐ๐—ต๐—ผ๐—ผ๐˜€๐—ฒ ๐—ฎ ๐—น๐—ผ๐—ฐ๐—ฎ๐˜๐—ถ๐—ผ๐—ป ๐˜๐—ผ ๐—ฝ๐—ฒ๐—ฟ๐—ณ๐—ผ๐—ฟ๐—บ ๐˜„๐—ต๐—ฒ๐—ฟ๐—ฒ ๐˜„๐—ผ๐˜‚๐—น๐—ฑ ๐—ถ๐˜ ๐—ฏ๐—ฒ? Probably at the Lowlands festival in the Netherlands. I go here every year (before COVID) and every year it is one of the best experiences of my life.

๐Ÿณ. ๐—ช๐—ต๐—ฎ๐˜ ๐—ถ๐˜€ ๐˜†๐—ผ๐˜‚๐—ฟ ๐—ฎ๐—น๐—น ๐˜๐—ถ๐—บ๐—ฒ ๐—ณ๐—ฎ๐˜ƒ๐—ผ๐˜‚๐—ฟ๐—ถ๐˜๐—ฒ ๐˜€๐—ผ๐—ป๐—ด? My all-time favorite song can only be one and that is Autumn Leaves from Chet Baker.

๐Ÿด. ๐— ๐—ผ๐˜€๐˜ ๐—ฒ๐—บ๐—ฏ๐—ฎ๐—ฟ๐—ฟ๐—ฎ๐˜€๐˜€๐—ถ๐—ป๐—ด ๐—บ๐—ผ๐—บ๐—ฒ๐—ป๐˜? My most embarrassing moment is probably me walking out of the shower with my curtains wide open. Let's just say that my neighbors visitors did more sightseeing than they bargained for.

๐Ÿต. ๐—ฃ๐—ฟ๐—ผ๐˜‚๐—ฑ๐—ฒ๐˜€๐˜ ๐—”๐—ฐ๐—ฐ๐—ผ๐—บ๐—ฝ๐—น๐—ถ๐˜€๐—ต๐—บ๐—ฒ๐—ป๐˜?

I guess my proudest accomplishment so far would be getting my Bachelor degree in Biomedical Sciences.

๐Ÿญ๐Ÿฌ. ๐—ช๐—ต๐—ฎ๐˜ ๐—ฎ๐—ฟ๐˜๐—ถ๐˜€๐˜ ๐˜„๐—ผ๐˜‚๐—น๐—ฑ ๐˜†๐—ผ๐˜‚ ๐˜„๐—ฎ๐—ป๐˜ ๐˜๐—ผ ๐—ฐ๐—ผ๐—น๐—น๐—ฎ๐—ฏ ๐˜„๐—ถ๐˜๐—ต ๐—ถ๐—ณ ๐˜†๐—ผ๐˜‚ ๐—ฐ๐—ผ๐˜‚๐—น๐—ฑ ๐—ฐ๐—ต๐—ผ๐—ผ๐˜€๐—ฒ?ย  Dream collaboration would definitely be with Grammatik. As previously mentioned, their music is what mainly inspires mine and whenever I listen to their music I'm just immediately vibing :)
