TGIF SESSIONS EP001
DUTCH, ANTILLEAN LEAGUE PRESENTS EPISODE 001 OF THANK GOD IT’S FRIDAY SESSIONS AN EXCLUSIVE MIX BY JP BACKHOUSE.
JP Backhouse born Jimmy Bakhuis on the beautiful multicultural Island of Curacao the ideal place to absorb many musical influences in which Caribbean and Latin rhythms are by far the most popular. It wasn’t until the age of 15 that he found his passion in music production.
Inspired by no one other than DJ Moortje he modified the family PC to create a bubbling making music machine.
It wasn’t long before all local free style bubbling dancers came to him for custom made dance battle tracks.
After sampling much hip hop music he got intrigued by the hip hop culture and started to make hop hip beats for local rappers including a very young DJ IskI. (A former classmate)
Sometime later his interests shifted toward more electronic dance oriented music. He developed an extreme high interest in the creation of electronic sounds. He followed his heart to Amsterdam to learn the craft of making electronic music. He fell in love with the rave culture and started to DJ and produce dance music whilst attending sound and audio engineering courses. After years of experimenting he started to distinguish himself with his ability to create unique sounds and his effortless ability to remix songs. It wasn’t long until his tracks & bootlegs got picked up by dutch DJ’s including Cor Fijneman and Jochem Miller. After this he switched gears and started to make harder dance music. This resulted in massive support from Hard dance DJ’s across europe and even regular airplay of his tracks on the BBC radio 1 show from DJ Kutksi. He also got to play at massive festivals and Clubs in the UK, Germany and Holland including Defqon 1 and venue’s like the Heineken Music hall. (under his prior stage name Jim Justice)
You can find his tracks on many CD compilations that were sold around Europe.
