Bas White

DJ

“Growing up in the huge music library from my dad helped mold who I am today. Every weekend we visited the music stores to listen to new releases, those moments together were the best. From the late 90s I noticed that the love for soul, jazz, funk and their corresponding groove were embodied in some pieces of house music, my love started.”

Since 2002, Bas White has combined his passion for music, alongside playing music, in the Amsterdam entertainment scene. His rule is to never overdose on music. For him, the best thing in life is to share music to passionate and joyous people.
