About the artists
23-year-old Dutch DJ and producer, Tensen, found his way into the world of electronic music at a very early age. Being raised just outside of Amsterdam, Tensen found himself fascinated by the underground, cultivating his passion for the sound day by day. Growing up in a musical family with jazz and funk free-flowing through his ears, Tensen was instantly drawn to the arts, laying the musical ground-work before he could talk. Having played the drums since the age of 9 it’s no surprise that Tensen’s distinctly raw, percussive yet effortlessly-groovy sound has taken influence, sitting on the deeper side of the house spectrum. As a self-taught producer, Tensen spends countless hours tucked away in his studio, honing his craft. A passion he shares closely with his younger brother. Today, he plays an active part as a leader for the new generation of Amsterdam’s underground music scene, empowering his peers and leading by example, demonstrating that the opportunities really are endless, if you just set your mind to it.
Expressing himself by music, this autodidact started playing with his casio keyboard at the age of 9. Inspired by hip-hop, Julien messed up all the vinyl at home trying to sync and scratch his records. When his skill got better, so did his equipment. By producing small-time tracks on dodgy software, he developed a taste for electronic music. When he started to enjoy the Amsterdam nightlife, his fate was soon to be decided, Favouring underground house and Detroit techno, tech-house was but a natural evolution. Now this silent and humble prodigy is always looking for new tracks, and a new place to play some records. Even though it is mostly to pick up new ideas and keep on improving.
