Michelbeke, Belgium

Brought up on a steady diet of classical music, The Beatles and traditional Indian music, Surya found his love for music in 1991 when he discovered the early rave records of the time. He soon broadened his tastes to anything electronic, instrumental and dancefloor oriented, going from early trance to early hardcore. He started producing all of those genres in 1996, with a first hard trance release in 1998. His true passion turned out to lie in the combination of dirty, dark basslines and breakbeats. Since discovering drum 'n' bass in 1999, the harder and darker subgenres have been his mainstay. He is constantly looking for better ways to combine aggressive basslines, eclectic breakbeats and melodic bad lines while not forgetting the demands of the dance floor.
