Wan Bushi

Although he played his first instrument (violin) at the age of 6, Wan Bushi’s real passion for music started around his 9 years when he got his first eurodance record for christmas (modo – ein zwei polizei). Quickly all the ultra top CD’s hitting the charts in the 90′s were added to his collection. And like many at his age he followed musical lessons in music school as well as drum & percussion lessons.

During his teenage period he focused mostly on playing drums in reggae, metal & punk bands, and following private drum lessons. But his love for the electronic secretly remained, and when he went to college in 2004 he heard drum n bass for the first time, and from that moment his love relation with underground music would never stop. All he needed was a computer and some speakers; a new bedroom producer was born.

As he had no DJ experience at all, he worked hard to create a live set with home made tunes. In 2006 he joined I&I Relations, a belgian party crew who gave him a chance to play at his first dnb party in 2007. Meanwhile, he also discovered breakcore through the many breakcore parties taking place in Belgium (so small country but soooo many parties). Because of the creative freedom of breakcore, and the possibility to combine nearly all kind of music with it, he slowly raised his bpm, replaced the dnb breaks with fast & furious jungle influenced breakcore drums, and spiced it up with eurodance & happy hardcore mashups. In 2008 & 2009 he kept producing the same way. This were also a very good year as he got many more bookings throughout the country and got more & more known for his own sound. He also started a new musical project to satisfy his musical needs by creating Nihaya Tree, a very melodic dub & downbeat influenced music concept.

At the end of 2009 he took part in the creation of Ragga Terror Front, a belgian collective composed of Belgian but also international artists like Strog (pl) and Junglefever (nl). It was created with the ambition of promoting diversified underground music like jungle, raggacore, breakcore, hardcore, and more.
