Making moves in the music scene, Apster is bringing his talent to the masses and enthusing crowds around the world with his broad style and taste in music, from progressive house to filthy electro (as in his hit tracks Get Down Like That, Drum It and Blackbox).
Apster has built his career working with top fellow Dutch producers including Nicky Romero, Bassjackers, Firebeatz and Afrojack – who signed Apster immediately to his Wall Recordings label after hearing the track “Bubble Gutz”. Apster has also produced tracks and remixes for other international A-list artists, including Hardwell, Pitbull, Bingo Players and Jennifer Lopez.
Apster’s love for music came from an influence of his Morroccan heritage and Michael Jackson, R&B, funk and French hip-hop. Anything he sees, hears and experiences is an influence for raw material for his music. His love for dance started with a cassette mixtape by legendary Dutch DJ’s including Dimitri and Marcello. Early on, Apster started experimenting with electronic music software like Fruity Loops and Atomix.mp3. He succeeded in placing tracks with Spinnin’ Records, Mixmash, Samsobeats and Wall Recordings.
At a young age, Apster started his DJ career in nightclubs in a small town in the south of Holland, Tilburg, headlining nights for packed crowds. At the age of 20, the biggest step in his DJ career was opening for Afrojack – with excited crowds ready for more. This made him decide to make music for the global dance scene. “I took a deep breath and went for it. The crowd response was so magical that I decided then and there that I wanted to be a DJ for the rest of my life.” Apster said.
Having performed at the hottest nightclubs and festivals around the world including ones in Las Vegas, Miami, Ibiza and Australia and successfully done a solo tour in India as well as in Asia, Apster is securing his place in the electronic dance music history. As for the near future, Apster will be collaborating with A-list artists on new releases and performing again at several major festivals and nightclubs across the globe. His shows will be bigger and of high quality production-wise. Make sure to keep an eye out for Apster, new music is coming at you very soon; IT’S GETTING HOT!
