Erik began his adventure into electronic music in the early nineties. In 1995 he bought his first set of turntables and soon he was invited to show his dj skills at several parties in and near Amsterdam.
After a successful performance at one of the first Qlubtempo parties in 2002 he became a well known guest at hardstyle parties in the Netherlands.
After a break of almost three years he sharpened his sound, upgraded his producing skills and started a new project called Artic. He experimented with a harder and rougher sound and found a new home for his musical direction. Artic is not afraid to cross genres to create his own unique sound for his dj sets and productions.
This year (2010) the first Artic E.P. was released on Deepack's Hardcopy Recordings and there are more releases to come!
He also mixed under the name of Haze.
