Lively Audio is my pet project where I combine my passion for web design & development with quality, underground electronic music.

Before I moved to Greece in 2008 and started my career in web design & development, I was active in the Dutch electronic music scene for almost 20 years. Primarily I was happily spinning vinyl grooves as DJ Gentle and co-producer of the Dutch duo ‘Fortress’ (later named ‘Paragon’). This led to many other adventures and collaborations such as the cofounding of DJ collective ‘Shifting Gears Collective’ as well as the event organisation company ‘Multiarea’.

Multiarea was also, for a big part, artist management of DJ's & Live acts and I had the privilege to take care of the Benelux bookings for Long Range (from Phil Orbital Hartnoll & Nick Smith), Ian Simmonds aka Juryman (!K7 / Musik Krause), Ben Mono (Compost Records), Paul Murphy (Afroart Recordings), Capitol A (2000 Black), Darcosan (Vienna Scientists Recordings), Biological (EC Records), C.O.N.E (Footsteppa) and Dogdaze (now known as 2562/A Made Up Sound).

Here is to wishing you an ear-gasmic listening experience at my new little musical playground, ‘Lively Audio’, where you can hear some of my mixes and where I feature & promote talented artists & independent labels that I've discovered on SoundCloud®. Gotta spread the love! It's a work in progress and therefore some functionalities might be a bit buggy on certain platforms or devices but these kinks I will iron out over time. Oh and stay tuned for many more mixes still to come!

Enjoy the melody!
