Kollektief is the brainchild of Remko Verweij, a producer from Arnhem, The Netherlands. Remko started making music when he was 16 and since then consumed just about anything; from hip-hop to drum & bass, broken beats to jazz, house to techno and reggae to pop music.
He has released loads of music under several aliases amongst which are Phonc, Komplexx and Stout!.
A gifted DJ also with an eclectic taste that can be heard throughout his sets. As the years progressed and his skills as a producer developed, he started to realize that it was time to embrace his diverse taste in music and blend all of these styles into his own brand.
This resulted in Kollektief, a new formation, best described as “raw electronics with urban pop sensibilities”.
Kollektief is a platform which incorporates the creative flows from several producers, vocalists and visual artists. These are the three pillars from which all work originates. The structure of the music is mainly songbased, but combined with the raw energy of underground electronic music. This makes for the perfect breeding ground of an energetic live-act with stunning visuals. A stripped-down version will also be available as a dj-act. And both will be seen in clubs and on stages across the globe from 2020.
Keep an eye out for Kollektief!
