In 2009 I started producing electronic music. Since then I've released on several different labels, created my own label, had airtime on one of the biggest national radiostations, performed at a lot of different clubs and festivals, and poured quite an enourmous portion of my income and time into music gear and learning how to use it.
Currently I'm in the process of writing, recording, composing and producing my debut album.
When I started out DJ'ing and making music back in 2009 I created an alias called Joshua Sphinx. This was the name under which I released all of my music. I had the honour to DJ alongside some pretty big names in the scene at the time, and at some really nice places. I had airtime on SLAM!FM which is one of the biggest national radiostations in the Netherlands.
I devoted a lot of time and money to accumulating gear and knowledge about recording, signal processing, mixing, mastering, (modular)synthesis, composition, but also about studio acoustics/reflection treatment, DJ'ing and live performing and learning about the music business.
In fact, all of this motivated me to take on a bachelor study International Music Management at Inholland Haarlem in 2013.
In 2016 I wanted to do some more experimenting musically and decided that I wanted to create a new alias to release new music under. I decided to go with Neat Machine. I worked quite hard and long on creating a visual style and musical direction, and am now working on my debut album as Neat Machine.
