Who is Bram Troost?
Born in The Hague in 1979, Bram Troost grew up listening to old tracks from the 60’s and 70’s of which his mom and dad were fond of.
They had old Motown and Rhythm & Blues records and at that time his parents had two old ‘snare driven’ technics to put them on.
When in the early 80’s the hiphop became a new thing, he would hear different sounds than usual and started to scratch his dad’s records. At the time it wasn’t appreciated, but it was a sign about what was going to happen in his life growing up as a teenager.
When he was about 11 years old he bought his first ever record, Michael Jackson’s " BAD " , still looked at as one of the best records ever made. Together with this record and others from Queen and some old Motown records, he started to create a wide interest in music.
When he was about 15, he started to play at different parties of friends and family, just mixing music on a tape deck (!) and trying to get two records to play at the same time. If that didn’t work, he would just try to make the best of it.. When he reached 18/19, he started to get in touch with people who were making music by spinning records! He learned this technique quickly and bought himself two turntables and practised and practised and practised…
After being able to mix his music together with his crowd-controlling qualities, he started to produce his own music when he was about 23. He went to Paris with one of his buddies, Ruben De Ronde. There he played in several clubs, aswell as making tracks in the tiny studio they had together. When they came back in Holland, things really started to heat up, when Ruben became of the biggest upcoming talents in Trance/progressive music, and Jinx came to be one of the known dj’s in the area. His productions with and without Ruben, have been played all over the world. Now with his name changed to his own, he’s ready to rock as a artist known for his enthusiasm and improvisation!
The biggest dj’s, like Sander Van Doorn, Tiesto, Roger Sanchez support his tracks and with his appearances in Holland and parties abroad, Bram Troost has grown to be a Dj / Producer that is capable to provide music to be enjoyed to it’s full potential…
