HAVEN - MUSIC

I adore taking sidesteps from my professional main business, but I know for sure that my adoration for music will never go away.
I adore taking sidesteps from my professional main business. I truly enjoy to create ideas and taking them to the next level, like I (we) do with HAVEN and SUI. But as hard as I enjoy them, I know for sure that my adoration for music will never go away. It is something I grew up with. It’s the first thing I think about when I wake up. It’s the last thing that wanders through my mind before I go to sleep. It’s often the thing I dream about at night.
The thing, apart from creating music, I enjoy the most, is hunting for new tunes. I could spend hours and hours on the internet, browsing through tons of music, looking for those tunes that immediately grab you by the balls, that give you the shivers, that haunt around in your brain for the days to come. The older you get, the more critical you become, and the harder it gets to get your hand on the one track that changes your day and you put on repeat for the next 24 hours. But when you find it, oh man, what a treat!
From time to time, well, very little actually, I do a DJ-set. I’m not very good at it, I know that, and I don’t care really, but it’s always interesting to see if your taste can relate to your audience, the dancer. I have to be honest that most of the time it’s very hard, because I love to switch from one genre to another, which makes it interesting for the listener, but not for the dancefloor-filler. So I decided to give the dancer a rest, and focus on the listener.
Music has always been a way to share something with someone, and I feel it should stay that way. I hate it when people discover great thing and keep it to themselves. How selfish can one be. With that philosophy in the back of my mind, I decided to bundle my treasures and from time to time publish a mixtape with the best tracks of that time, mixed with unknown beauties of the past. With Arsenal they are published under GINGERSHAVENOSOUL, and for HAVEN I simply call them the HAVEN MIXTAPES. The first one for HAVEN was published last month, and you can check it here.
I hope you enjoy it, and I wish you the best weekend ever!
