This all occured after he earned his stripes as a talented drummer. D-Rok was already playing Jazz, Funk, Disco and Soul at 9 years old. These music styles gave him the first push to enter the world where Funk, Disco and Soul samples are explored: Hip-Hop. His ambition to explore all techniques on the turntables and his curiosity of Hiphop’s background brought him to collect, learn and play diverse types of music: House, Funk, Soul, Broken Beat, Disco; better known as black music. Supported by Dutch hiphop pioneers like DJ Knowhow (a Hip-Hop icon in The Netherlands thanks to the first Dutch Radio show Dutchmasters and producer of many national Hip-Hop hits) D-Rok can match the tag “street”, combined with great knowledge of the history and details of every record. Only 24 years and even with this combination of talent, knowledge and skills, D-Rok has been a well kept secret in his country. Please don’t repeat; but we think this soon will change.
