Bio "Zoutman"
Music, inspiration and life in general is what it is all about for Zoutman. Playing the classical piano in his childhood gave him a head start in his abilities to arrange and compose music. After finishing his Sound Design study at the HKU Art Academy he started working on film sound and music. But still he always spent his spare time on producing techno tracks.
Finding balance in contradictions like sound design for movies and producing techno tracks is the main reason why his musical output covers such a wide range of sounds and can be completely different in character. Zoutmans sound is versatile and strongly depends on the setting and atmosphere of a particular moment. One could say that his sound strongly settles on the crossing borders between Tech House & Techno, but always with shimmering melodies, lurking basslines and a hint of his sound design skills. Late 2010 Zoutman took a new direction and finished his first live set which he has been playing and improving ever since.
With a discography of over 30 releases on labels including Dataworx, Globox, Manual Music and LCMTC. Zoutman has established a solid reputation in the producer department ever since his first records came out in 2008. His releases receive support from international keyplayers as diverse as Richie Hawtin, Dubfire, Dandi & Ugo, Paco Osuna and Secret Cinema.
Zoutman has performed at Paradiso, Studio80, Club Poema, Simplon, Hotel Arena, Club Air, Lief Festival, Catwalk, Dock 154, Hifi Leiden, Escape Delux., L'boulevard Festival (Casablanca, Marocco), WSC (Riga, Latvia).
