Juan Beukeboom (NL)
Back when Juan was still lil' Juan, he found a Baile Funk CD by coincidence. Instantly he was hooked by the rhythms, energy and vibe of Brazilian sounds. From that first moment Baile Funk blasted through his speakers, young music lover Juan started exploring the world of Brazilian music. After many years of researching and collecting Brazilian music, he felt the urge to take it to the next step and produce his own Baile Funk beats. Juan Beukeboom was born. Juan gives his own unique twist to the Baile Funk sound in which he blends early 90’s house and gabber influences, coming from his Dutch roots but also hiphop elements that have excited him over the years. He released his A-Live mixtape which was strictly made from his own productions. It was his creative way to give hommage to his most beloved Baile Funk tracks. The mixtape received support from artists like Branko, King Doudou, FS Green, Wantigga, JAEL and more. Besides producing, Juan also performs a unique liveshow. On stage he creates and combines his own music using a SP404 sampler. The combination of Baile Funk rhythms and uplifting melodies result in a dynamic and lively mix made for some high-energy dancing. On various festival- and clubstages, Juan has brought his energetic live-set which is very much worth witnessing.
