Bliksem

Description

By setting up parties, both legal and squat, Bliksem was an active participant of the Dutch underground acid scene of the mid ยด90s. Around the same time he started making electronic music but did not perform live until early 2003. From then on music making became a more serious pastime and in 2005 he formed what is now known as the artist collective Adapter. The goal was (and still is) to create a place for themselves and other beginning artists to perform and to contribute to the Dutch electronic music scene.

Influenced by underground acid labels like Bunker and DropBass Network and more experimental stuff on labels such as Rephlex and Skam, Bliksem prefers using analogue equipment to create his music. His live sets consist of particular minimal beats and coarse TB-303 bass lines that make for a slow acid groove. Some analogue synths are used to add some melodic parts.
