I co-produced and mixed the very first single for a brandnew pop/country/rock band called The Young River, in which my ex-intern Nick Jongejan happens to be the singer, guitarist, songwriter and co-producer. If you're into Rascal Flatts, Hunter Hayes or Taylor Swift, be sure to check this out!

This is a big one for me: I co-wrote Hardwell's new release in Asia where it's out now on Universal Music! Featuring Taiwanese superstar Jolin Tsai!





March 20, 2017


I had the chance to produce/mix three new singles for Mathias Vergels, in Belgium well-known as actor in tv-series 'Thuis'. His first single is now released on Sony Music Belgium, and instantly added to the playlist of one of Belgium's biggest radio stations MNM!
Thanks to Sony Music A&R manager Albert Grootoonk, and session musicians Robin Faas, Nick Jongejan, Tom Vorstius Kruijff and Jaap Mol!

New Bottles Of Love single out today! I had the great pleasure of producing, mixing en co-writing the song - and it's definitely one of my favourites off the full length album that's coming out on March 3rd!

Look who entered the Dutch album charts this week!

Call It Off: congratulations with officially putting poppunk back on the map in NL!





January 6, 2017


After getting A LOT of airplay with their last single, Call It Off is back with a brandnew single taken from their upcoming album on Sony Music that I produced & mixed. Love this video!





November 9, 2016


Freshly signed to Sony Music, Call It Off is announced as 'serious talent' on major Dutch radio station Radio 3FM after they released their single 'Abandoned' that I produced and mixed. Worked so hard on these songs, so good to hear this on national radio now. Congrats!

One of the tracks that I co-wrote on latest Spinnin/Musicallstars writing camp is out now on Spinnin' Records! Pep & Rash and Polina - Echo.





October 3, 2016


New music! Life's Electric got awarded a '3FM Serious Talent' spot earlier this year, and tonight their brand new follow-up single 'King Of Second Chances' will be premiered on 3FM. This one was really fun to produce/mix and you definitely want to check this out if you're into bands like Bring Me The Horizon, Foo Fighters or anything in between. More rock on the radio!





October 1, 2016


'Release' by Atmozfears ft. David Spekter, that I wrote the topline (vocal melody & lyrics) for, exceeded 3 MILLION plays on Spotify!






August 26, 2016


Boom! Today is Call It Off's first release since signing to Sony Music! Which also means that it's actually my debut on a major label as a producer/mixer. We worked so hard on this and I still absolutely love this song. Please check this out if you're into any kind of rock/punk/pop!





May 31, 2016


And now for something completely different! Lately I've been doing a lot of songwriting for dance tracks and, although it was never my plan, DJs/labels asked me if they could release songs with my vocals. Things got a little out of hand, so I decided to hide under an alter ego. Meet my partner in crime and like/follow if you want to stay updated:

Finally it's there! Willem Jonker a.k.a. Bottles Of Love has been writing songs for this brandnew band for some years now, and I had the pleasure of co-producing and mixing these "hyperpop" gems. He'll release lots of new music this year, but today the first single AND the first EP:







May 3, 2016


Very glad to be producer & mixing engineer for the debut single of a band that I think could AND should achieve a lot of great things in the near future. Statesmen just signed to one of the best booking agencies Agents After All, are managed by Innercore Music, and hearing their next demos I'm sure this is only the beginning. Congrats guys!





April 14, 2016


I am now featured on Noise Creators: a new platform from the USA helping artists & music industry finding the right producer or mixing engineer. The site was founded by one of the biggest A&R-managers in rock music Johnny Minardi (Fueled By Ramen, Atlantic Records, Equal Vision, etc) and he had some nice words to say about my work! Also pretty cool to see my name in between some of my favorite producers, like James Paul Wisner and Joey Sturgis :-)

They also put up a spotify link with some of my production/mixing here




April 14, 2016


Congrats to Life's Electric with being 'Serious Talent' on Radio 3FM! They recently did some aftershows for Muse and one of the songs we recorded overhere has already been getting some good airplay lately. Check their Serious Talent page on 3fm.nl here.

I've been writing toplines (vocal melody & lyrics) to some dance tracks in the last two years, and today I saw that three of those tracks are in the 2016 edition of the Hardstyle top 2000 of all time. Definitely didn't see this coming!




October 26, 2015


Had the honour of producing & mixing The Overslept's new single, really glad with the outcome. Great young and talented pop/rock band that already supported Simple Plan a few times this year. Convinced they're gonna achieve more in the near future!





October 26, 2015


Really enjoyed working on new PollyAnna songs the last few months. Brandnew single 'Rollercoaster' is out! Don't hesitate to check it out if you like yourself an uplifting catchy pop chorus!





October 26, 2015


Earlier this year I produced and mixed a new Call It Off single called 'Anesthesia' and here it is! It was a pleasure to work with (in my eyes) one of Europe's top notch pop punk / rock bands: I already loved their music long before they contacted me - these guys sure know how to craft a song!





June 3, 2015


I wrote the vocal melody & lyrics to this new Atmozfears dance banger, and I absolutely love the singer's voice. Can't believe it has over 27.000 views in less than 24 hours, insane!





June 1, 2015


Last month the third Destine album called 'Forevermore' came out, and I was credited as producer and songwriter, as well as leadvocals/guitar. Mixed by James Paul Wisner, mastered by Troy Glessner. Streamable on Spotify:

Here's the new Destine music video of the first single 'Down And Out', from the album 'Forevermore' that I wrote and produced. Don't try this at home!

March 9, 2015


Last saturday I started pre-production with one of my favourite bands in The Netherlands: Call It Off! If you haven't heard them yet, you probably will soon: they got a good buzz going on and just signed with Friendly Fire booking agency. Totally blown away by their new demos!

More than a year ago I worked on my very first full album as a producer, for the very talented and handsome PollyAnna! Today is the release of her first single 'Sing', that I produced & mixed, and the only song on the album that we wrote together. Check it out if you're into catchy choruses, acoustic guitars, big drums and summer vibes. Exciting things about to happen!





July 26, 2014


Really proud on this one: a couple of months ago a young rock band called Shiverburn entered my studio to record 4 songs. We really focused on getting every melody as catchy as possible, combining them with heavy guitars. I couldn't be happier with the result. Check it out if you're into bands like Paramore and Flyleaf.





July 2, 2014


A while ago I co-wrote this song for Alex Green. Check out this live preview, I absolutely love his voice. Release following soon.

Last year I did a week of pre-production for the French band Home Most Days. With these songs, lead singer Charles Like The Prince got signed to Sony Music France and one of the songs we worked on gets regular airplay on Virgin Radio France now. All his success is deserved, his songs are amazing!




May 13, 2014


And now for something completely different: I wrote vocals/lyrics to the latest single for hardstyle DJ's Code Black & Atmozfears. It's now on number #1 in the Hardstyle.com Top 100, gets some decent radio airplay and was the official anthem for the XXlerator Outdoor festival.
