Music is not just music, it's a way of life for Ben since he was born in 1988. Music always had a grip on Ben. He was dancing to the old Motown records from his parents as a little boy, and always busy adjusting the equalisers on the stereo. At the age of 18 he finally took the step and bought his first Dj-gear.
A journey through different genres started... Commercial electro & house in the beginning, then progressive and back to house. After a couple of years he found 'his' music. Nowadays it's deep, smooth sounds combined with grooving and moving beats. Don't expect only one style of music, but rather a mix of different ones. From very deep house to tech and even a touch of funky house. NOT the main stream electronic dance music.
Just music you won't hear, unless you go underground...
Recently Ben took his first steps in the hard world of producing. Like every producer, he's trying to find his own style. His first EP is a combination of deep and atmospheric house, but still dancefloor minded. If you want to hear more tracks from Soultricks in the future, just keep an eye on him.
Soultricks spinned the decks (as Soulshaker) @ Onceuponafest, Decadance, The factory, 27a,... With dj's like Seba Lecompte, Tom Dazing, Tecnum, Iris Menza,, Rupert Harvey, Vie,...
The music itself inspired him the most. Off course there are some artists he is influenced by as well: Kevin Saunderson, Lucas Keizer, Ronan Portela, Nacho Marco, Toka Project, Joris Voorn,El Mundo & Satori , Ramon Tapia, Carl Cox, Kevin Yost, Lukas Greenberg, Seba Lecompte , Oxia, Tommy Largo, Danny Serrano, Jamiroquai, De La Soul, St-Germain and many more...
