I am Koen Hol A.K.A. Dr. Valiente and I am born on the 19th of April 1996 in Ede, Gelderland, The Netherlands. At the age of 10 I moved to Bennekom.
I started DJ-ing when I were 9 years old and got an old mixer I got from my dad that showed up from the loft, I connected it to my old Discman and played some of my favorite tracks.
When I was around the age of 10 I bought a regular DVD-player to really mix the tracks from my Discman into the track playing on my DVD-player.
At the age of 13 I bought a little "Hercules DJ Controller" but after a year I wanted more and bought a bigger one then I suggested that this wasn't enough for me and I started working and collecting money to buy 2 Reloop RMP-3's and the Reloop RMX-40 DSP which I'm still using.
I started producing when I became 13 and got inspired to do this by a friend of my parents who travelled around the world making music (videos).
I started producing with Ableton live 7 which didn't really work out for me after ableton I tried a couple more producing softwares and ended up with FL Studio which seems to work the best in my opinion.
Massive tracks coming up!
Mixtapes are on mixcloud!
