Basto (BE)

Whether it's dj'ing all over the globe, writing and producing worldwide hits for others, or creating music for his alter ego Basto and brother collective Lazy Jay, Belgian multi instrumentalist and singer Jef Martens seemingly does it all with the same ease he puts it all into perspective: "It's not like I'm curing cancer. Unfortunately." That said, his track record speaks for itself, notable highlights being "Again And Again" & "CloudBreaker", 2 big radio and club hits for Basto, each making both the European Sales as Airplay top 20, "212" becoming one of the absolute cult songs of the last decade for Azealia Banks ft. Lazy Jay, "Scream And Shout", the worldwide number 1 smash for Will.i.am ft. Britney Spears,... On top of that, Martens entered Music Week's worldwide most successful songwriters top 100 at number 39 in 2013, from out of nowhere. Recent collaborations include Natasha Bedingfield, Mika, Will.i.am, Pia Mia, Cedric Gervais and his new project Comet Blue.
