I AM UNDERS
Music unveiled my perception, it catalyzed me into an awakening. I
was 12 when my journey as a DJ began, and since those first sessions
of alchemizing sound, I discovered a language of no words, but
frequencies, which gave my human experience a true purpose.
I am Unders, born in The Netherlands, yet my true roots feel
otherworldly. I ́ve been in service as a passionate ambassador of the
global dance community for decades.
My career took a massive leap when my track ‘Syria’ was picked by
Sol Selectas Records and released onto the global stage. Not only
did it find a place on the Billboard top ten electronic tracks of
2016, it also unleashed some of the most majestic paths of
possibilities in the electronic world. And the portals of invitation
have been since never-ending at clubs and festival stages including
Robot Heart & Mayan Warrior at Burning Man, AfrikaBurn, Fusion,
Garbicz, Awakenings, Amsterdam Dance Event, Woomoon, Coachella,
Lightning in a Bottle, SXM Festival, Gardens Of Babylon, and so many
more creative gatherings around the globe.
My life has become a waking dream, although I sleep very little. I
spend many hours travelling, connecting and the rest creating. I am
always on a quest for new frequencies, cultures, faces, and places.
It is as if the thousands of heartbeats I play for, mix into a
symphony and this collective vibration inspires the diversity and
depth of the music I offer.
My feet have walked all continents, I've played in endless magical
stages around the world, from Berlin, São Paolo, Mexico, and Ibiza
to New York. And I must say, no matter where I ́m standing in the
world, it is the moment i blend what truly resonates and I am eye
gazing at an ocean of humans that I feel at home.
I have been honored to co-create, play and produce alongside Satori,
Mira, Acid Pauli, Boy George, Trentemoller, Booka Shade, Ame,
Audiofly, Be Svendsen, Patrice Baumel, Guy Mantzur, Nick Warren,
Sasha, and Henrik Schwarz to name but a few. Along the way, I have
supported imprints such as Sol Selectas Records, Supernature,
UnderYourSkin, Kindisch, and of course, my own: Happy Camper
Records, which was founded alongside the Belle of Berlin: Britta
Arnold, and the formidably talented producer: Noraj Cue.
Happy Camper Records is what encapsulates one of my biggest missions
in the music industry: to promote a label that encourages raw
talents and to create a container that inspires the artists’
creativity to blossom with awareness in self-care and authenticity.
Happy Camper Records is committed to translate love and togetherness
into musical bliss. It is a peaceful way to reclaim our freedom and
a contribution of consciousness to the music community, which has
sheltered my own talent for so many decades.
In other angles of my career, I have musicalised different projects
in a wide spectrum of industries such as commercials for GMC,
editorial fashion videos for the conceptual clothing line: Demobaza,
and the most exciting recent collaboration with Studio drift
projects, including the 2021 Burning Man drone show.
What I've learned through the stages and journeys is that choosing
this path requires profound passion and dedication, embracing change
and impermanence. Yet, the rewards are the strength of community,
the gift of co-creation, and the power of transcendence we can
create through music. This is why every track I create or set i
play, is an alchemy of notes charged with intentionality to spread
joy, raise the collective vibration, and to connect to something
that cannot be seen or touched, but can be felt.
After many years of having a base in Amsterdam, my heart yearned for
a deeper connection to nature to inspire the upcoming chapters in
this road of creation. This brought me to find my new home in the
magic Island of Ibiza, a land that will now be my hostess for
endless frequencies of bliss to unfold.
It's quite complex to summarise decades of a successful career in a
single page, which brings me back to the beginning: a wordless
language. Now allow me to speak to your heart: through my music.
