All the popular music of Pop, RnB, Hip Hop, Dance where played.
At 16 years I have started with ‘House’. R-station has been closed and since 1 january 2010 exist ‘Tasty Beatdrops’ comes from ‘Robin drops tasty beats’.

For this new EP are already two tracks finished. ‘Shiva’ & ‘Ganesha’, the third track is referred to a third Hindi god ‘Vishnu’. This EP is mix of tech house and electronic basslines with a heavy tasty finishing touch. For the moment there is no release date known.
4. What kind of equipment do you use for mixing or producting?
Believe it or now but I am still mixing on a Hercules Dj Console Rmx ;p
But this is for home, on gigs and parties I use Pioneer and Serato systems etc.
For producing I am working with Fl Studio.
5. What kind of music softwares do you prefer to use?
I prefer a classical Virtual Dj, haha
but i think that Traktor and Serato are still the best dj software.
6. Which are your favorite styles?
I love house a lot, in the beginning specially Dutch house, later and especially now I like many styles. House, Electro, Dubstep & Techno. I’ll give you here a detailed list (:
7. Who’s your favorite new artists?
Afrojack, Crookers; there are amazing if you saw them live. Highbloo, Steve Oaki, Sound Of Stereo Mumbai Science, NT89, Laidback Luke,… My favorite artist I’ve discover on soundcloud is Mr. Vega and all the others of ROT10 Musik.
8. If you do not work on music, what do you do ?
Studying of course, haha. or NOT ;p
I’ve done swimming competition. First provincial then Belgium and then at European level.
I was very good at this sport but I had to stop swimming by a knee injury.
I had need two years to recover, I have to learn walking again.
Now I give swim lessons to little children and teenagers who do swimming competition.
9. If It is not secret please tell us about your plans for the future?
Haha, I will tell it with pleasure. I am very interested in geography and history.
I will probably studying this next year. And after my studies we’ll see…
The problem then is that I will have a lot of work for my college, but I will keep updated of music.
So I’m thinking to start a music blog ‘Tasty Beatblog’ or something like that.
Because I will have to be less with making mixtapes and dj’ing on gigs.
And I think that a music blog is a good way to get,stay popular on soundcloud and updated of new music.
