I am born and raised in Holland (no, not in Michigan) and spend a lot of time in my childhood listening to all kinds of music, ranging from from punk to classical music. As a child I had a small pick-up and already made hitparades of my singles. Later this grew into a a lp collection of 400+ of mostly alternative music (symfonic rock, new wave, punk, electronic). When I was a student on a laboratoryschool I Iiked to DJ for the students on both school- and private parties. I also bought a drumset in those days and started drumming. Later I switched to Acid to make music.
