Extended Bio : The Philosopher
Thijs Bijlsma always had an addiction for music.
When he first came in contact with the distorted bass drums at the age of 12 he immediately liked the harsh pumping sound of Hardcore.
At the age of 14 he got a virtual mixing program on his computer and learned the basics of mixing.
After some years collecting Records he finally purchase some good turntables and a mixer to learn the real deal with vinyl.
After some time he was asked to play at some parties and festivals.
From that moment on he also started producing his own tunes with his own vision.
Every day he spent time to understand the basics of synthesis, making drum sounds and bought better equipment for his studio.
The more he listened to different styles of music, the more he got inspired to produce better music.
He then joined a sound design education to broaden his music and producing knowledge.
After a while he came in contact with the Cenobite label owner Leviathan.
When they joined in the studio, there was a good musical chemistry between the two and started making some productions together.
