I’ve been playing trumpet since I was 8 and the instrument hasn’t left my side ever since. After studying jazz trumpet at the conservatory in Rotterdam I started my journey as a professional musician. Playing different styles of music with various artists like Blaudzun, Ellen ten Damme, Maria Schneider and many more. Next to playing on stage I record and arrange music for several artists, such as Sam Feldt, Marlijn Weerdenburg and THYRZA. I record from my home studio or on location.
I always love to work with new music so don’t hesitate to send me an email!
Already during my studies at the conservatory in Rotterdam I started playing trumpet in the electronic music scene. That’s where ‘Q on trumpet’, my alter ego originated. I’ve been lucky to tour with the Sam Feldt live band for several years already and still continue do so. We’ve played at festivals all over the world including Ultra Miami, Tomorrowland, Untold, Mysteryland and many more.
I’ve also recorded for numerous electronic house producers amongst others Sam Feldt, Quintino and Fedde le Grand. To combine my love for recording and playing I created a service called ‘Essential Instruments’ together with lifelong musical brother Ben Rodenburg. With Essential Instruments we strive to make it accessible for every electronic music producer to have real instruments in their recording.
