- Bio -
From the day he was born Abel Wortt has listened not only to one kind of music but a wide variety of genres. As a child, his mother had him listen to classical music on vinyl by well-known composers or performance recordings of his grandmother, who was a Dutch opera singer. As he grew up, he listened to all kinds of artists from between the 60's and the 90's era, to name a few: The Doors, Mike Oldfield, Barry White, Bob Marley, Michael Jackson, Led zeppelin and Supertramp. During the 90's he became inspired by artists such as Richie Hawtin, Daft Punk, Aphex Twin, Chemical Brothers, Underworld, Fatboy Slim and The Prodigy.
At the age of 18 Abel started to produce his own electronic music. The only instrument he had played before was the piano, but as soon as he started using different DAW's (Digital Audio Workstation), he discovered the freedom of producing music with all kinds of instruments, samples and effects at the same time. No boundaries or limitations to only one instrument at a time.
Although he is inspired by a lot of different legendary artists from a very wide range of genres, his sound is truly unique. From the moment he started producing his own music, he has done much soul-searching and is still striving to produce his own sound. His goal is to create a style of music that is something pure of himself. Each track tells a story with a large amount of variety. His key features include a killer bass, driving percussion elements, glitch & crazy sound effects and unexpected turns in the arrangements.
Nowadays his passion for music has only become stronger. With his unique sounds and strong drive he knows how to surprise the audience during his performance. His sets are full of energy and always interesting from the beginning to end. Because of his tight building up and catchy groove, his music will keep you wanting to move. Abel Wortt has played in some of the greatest venues of The Netherlands such as the Sugar Factory (Amsterdam), Paradiso (Amsterdam), Studio/K (Amsterdam), Studio 80 Radio (Amsterdam), Dock 154 (Utrecht), Hal16 (Utrecht).
