The duo Specker is made up by Max Coppens en Kalle Liefferink. Both grew up in Amersfoort, but they didn’t meet until they were in their young-adulthood. And poetically as it may seem, they were brought together by their love for the same music, the same record to be exact. It was Max who owned a copy of Alejandro Vivanco’s Kahlwild, the record Kalle had been looking for. A mutual friend arranged the introduction, and a duo was born. Their first project was a local DJ contest, which they won and arranged their first real gig. From then on they’ve dj’d together as Specker (the origin of that name is a closely guarded secret by the way)
DJ’ing was just the beginning; in 2008 Max en Kalle enrolled in the School of Audio Engineering. A year later their first EP, Cap D’es Falco, was born. Since then they’ve put most of their time in producing.
The key to their success as a duo lies in the old adagio “Great minds think alike”. Their cooperation is based on a mix of total respect for each other’s creativity and talent (without being afraid to be honest toward each other) and the way in which they agree (on what is good music and what is not). The symbiosis is almost scary . But scary or not, it enables them to reach levels of near perfection The word ‘rest’ simply does not exist in their vocabulary. Despite a busy schedule they constantly strive for musical innovation. With an increasing interest of various highly respected labels, it won’t take too long before the broad mass will finally meet the Specker sound.
