IN YOUR HANDS you are holding my album Elemental Assets. I would like to give a bit of an explanation of how it came about. The CD consists of tracks produced by myself over the past few years, in which I spent a lot of time enhancing my production techniques and developing my creativity. Some tracks were made in rough times, while others were made under happy circumstances and perhaps you can tell. For me, music is an emotional vent allowing me to express my feelings and freeing me of my restlessness. This makes the album very personal and I am terribly excited to share it with the world and with you.

ELEMENTAL ASSETS refers to the essential things in life, to the things which I need to exist. Music is a big part of what's essential to me, just like the air that I breathe and the love I receive from my loved ones.
The titles of the tracks are a reflection of my feelings and experiences of the past two years. For instance: ‘Flirtatious Concubine’ was produced right after my deeply inspiring booking in Tokyo, whereas ‘Late Night Thinking’ speaks for itself. ‘Inspirited Away’ came into life thinking about two producers who really inspired me: Steve Rachmad and John Beltran.

A NOVELTY to me was working with singers and I am so much obliged to Miss Kittin and Sam Leigh-Brown for their input in ‘Le Flaneur’ and ‘High Maintenance’. They lifted the tracks up in a way I could only have wished for.

I WOULD LIKE TO THANK the people who helped me to realise this album: The Connaisseur family: Alex, Martin, Hilary and Ralph. And the people who supported and encouraged me: Roy, my family, my friends, my Dutch producer colleagues, Earth and Extrema agency and of course my dog Billie.
