Erik Iker, born in November 1988 in Belgrade, Serbia. The first time he came into contact with music he was as only a boy, when his dad played his record collection. Later in the 90s he gets in touch with electronic music, listening to Faithless, Scooter, Prodigy and others. His music breakthrough happens in 2002 when he goes underground, meeting psytrance and trance for the first time.
While more and more listening to these genres, he gets an idea to start mixing and making himself and he lays his hands on his very own first Fruity Loops Studio and starts creating music. At first he was just having fun. Fun that made him gain much experience in producing. In 2006. he decides to slow his beat and under the influence of Deep Dish, Sasha and others he starts producing progressive house. By 2009 he learned quite a bit working in FLS.
While he was watching tutorials, reading artist blogs and following their studio work online, his production got much better and could be considered quite serious. In 2010 he starts producing with a wish to do something more. His genre can be described as Progressive House with strong melodies, always a good atmosphere at hand, mixed with some trance elements. Under the influence of his fellow DJs in Serbia he also starts producing Tech House. Loving the slower tempo, nice grooves, noise, melodies and strong energetic tracks, a lot can be expected in the future from Erik. The wish to do something more will always continue to prevail.
Although Jasper Jinx could easily refer to a smooth, model-like actor from Hollywood, this catchy nickname is used by a talented DJ-duo from The Hague (The Netherlands). It labels the work of two extremely dedicated dance producers, Jelle Hoogeveen and Roy Tosseram, who gave their career a promising lift-off in 2009 with the release of ‘Gold’ on Extrema Records. The track is a perfect reflection of the sound these guys represent, not just committed to one type of style, but combining several genres in the making of energetic clubtracks!
Looking back at their youth, music has always been of strong influence on their life stories. Long before the DJ’ing part caught their interest, Jelle and Roy started out separately by studying music production on their own. At the age of only 9, Roy already mastered his first production skills on the early classic synthesizers, which let him to performing live on stage with dancers. On the other side, Jelle also made a start with electronic music at a young age, playing songs on his keyboard and in his teens by DJÓ©ng at local beach party.
For obvious, it was the music that brought Jelle and Roy together, not only as close friends but partners as well. In 2005 the two met each other at a dance party, and immediately found a connection of interest. It turned out the guys shared the same opinions about dance music and both were in search of new ways to become a part of the DJ-world. After spending some quality time in the studio, Jelle and Roy knew for certain that if they would take their chances for seizing their luck, it should be together as a team.
Over the years, Jelle and Roy build a strong foundation for their DJ-career under the name Evil Apes. Inspired by the classic synthesizer sound from the early nineties, the duo started to produce tuneful house and trance music. Great studio techniques were skilled, but because both guys had to deal with other big responsibilities on the side, the real breakthrough wasn’t in sight yet. After a tough year in 2008, dealing with the loss of a close friend to an incurable disease, the time was right for a fresh new start. With the release of ‘Gold’ a warm trance production in dedication of their late friend Rutger, the Jasper Jinx project was born. Nowadays, Roy and Jelle still create their music with great passion, bringing uplifting ‘Kick ass’ beats to shake up the big rooms!
