Sam van Boeckel was born in Groningen in the Netherlands. He grew up listening to many different styles of music. His love for techno music sprouted after visiting several festivals and seeing great DJ's like: Gaiser, Marcel Dettman and Bart Skills. The obsession over techno really started when he bought his first controller and started mixing tracks. Always trying to find unique combinations and keep the groove going. Nowadays he's hosting and playing at Hardnekkig, which is a rave organization based in Utrecht.
