Standing behind the deck, looking at a sea of faces, Unders experiences nothing but gratitude. He is living a life he could have only imagined when he began his journey as a 12- year-old DJ in Holland. He feels deeply connected, locked into a common frequency & driven by intuition. His effortless ability to read an audience and create an immediate bond has placed Unders on stages across the globe, where it is proven time and time again; music has transcendent power.
A defining moment in Unders' music career was when one of his co-conspirators, Sol Selectas Records, picked up his emotive track ‘Syria' and introduced it to the world. It was at this moment when he witnessed the power his music could have on a global scale. Over 100 million plays placed ‘Syria' on the top ten electronic tracks of 2016 Billboard charts. The honor continued when Satori expanded the tracks reach by weaving his remix into his live sets on the global stage. This overwhelming response to ‘Syria' remains a watershed moment offering Unders and his team opportunities previously unseen.
His rising reputation as an artist and producer has gifted Unders the opportunity to produce and play alongside Acid Pauli, Satori, Mira, Ame, Audiofly, Be Svendsen, Patrice Baumel, Guy Mantzur, and Henrik Schwarz to name but a few. His musical journey has taken him to the far corners of the world, from Katerblau, Berlin, Sao Paolo, Mexico, and Switzerland to New York, Burning Man, Coachella, Lightning in a Bottle, SXM Festival, Gardens Of Babylon, Fusion Festival and all over the Middle East.
He has supported imprints such as Sol Selectas Records, Supernature, UnderYourSkin, Kindisch, and of course, his own, Happy Camper Records.
In 2018, Unders launched Happy Camper Records alongside the Belle of Berlin, Britta Arnold, and the formidably talented producer, Noraj Cue. The label is excited to be investing in raw talents and fostering their artists’ creativity with care and authenticity. Happy Camper Records is committed to altering the conversations the world lives by and building platforms which expand the gift of creativity and self-care. Their new touring concept to hit the European market in 2020 is developing new “sustainable” methods of living & touring for creatives and the communities they inspire.
As insatiably curious now as he was in his teenage years, Under is on an endless quest for innovative sounds, tracks, artists, equipment, techniques, and most importantly, ways to more intimately touch his audience with his music. His collection of music is wide and varied and he never shies away from the outer reaches. His own music, both performed and produced, challenges expectations, builds subtle tension, draws the listener into a journey and creates a visceral power struggle of sound that taps into the very core of human emotion.
From a young age, Unders realized that music has the ability to unite us all. His commitment to inspire and promote a collective consciousness through sound has made Unders a beloved artist of the global underground music scene. A role he does not take lightly. A position he is honored to hold.
