Wouter S. has chosen his path for the future, and it’s one of distinctiveness.
The 44BASS label owner, producer and dj has been marking his place in the Dutch scene with a confident energy. This got him to play multiple shows in 2016 like Loveland Festival, Rotterdamse Rave, Smeerboel, 18HRS Festival, TOFFLER festivald and his own sold-out 44BASS ADE event with DJ EZ and TQD and more recently for Elrow and HYTE. His ‘Like That’ EP on 44BASS got major feedback from Mixmag and DJ Mag and some heavy rotation too. More recently he had some major gigs at Elrow, HYTE and he opened and closed for Fatboy Slim during his show in Amsterdam. This manifests how diverse Wouter is as an artist, as he doesn’t like to be labelled one thing or another.
Together with the infamous Benny Rodrigues, Wouter S. has played multiple acclaimed back-to-back sets and he’s what we call an ambassador for the UK Bass and Garage sounds in Holland. As such he released an EP on the British HOTHAUS records and he got invited to do mixes for BBC Radio 1 Extra, Rinse FM and Feel My Bicep.
For 2017 Wouter S. is set to fill the world with more of his energy, while playing almost every festival in Holland there. He will host stages at Amsterdam Open Air, 18HRS Festival and a Kingsday edition, which will be in collaboration with DJ Q’s Bassfest. Next to all this his agenda is filling up with gigs such as Soenda (mainstage), Welcome to the Future Festival, Straf_Werk Festival, Loveland, Toffler Festival and Rotterdamse Rave.
