Early Life

Career

After the first small successes with PLG, North Pole, Montera and Magnetix, he had his first breakthrough with the first release of Fire & Ice, produced together with DJ Fire. He decided to move to Antwerp so he could concentrate more on his productional work. L-Vee is possibly also best known for his collaborations with Georges Petkidis ("Planisphere") & Jurgen Leyers ("Fire & Ice"), and with Ludovic Meyer's under Cape Town, which they both released a web album in 2008 called "Aviateur". He became a professional artist using Airwave as a main project carrying his producers name known as L-Vee. One of his most notable remixes was of Seven Cities by Solar Stone under V-One in 1999, which was release by Hooj Choons. He was also commissioned to make remixes for the likes of Yves Deruyter, Da Hool, Aurora, Blue Alphabet, Push and Jones & Stephenson.

After the disappearance of his main label home Lightning Records, he is back to being a co-owner and A&R for Banshee Worx, the newly formed record label together with DJ/producer star Yves Deruyter and Fly (owner of Bonzai) and Marnik (A&R + international from the former Lightning Records).

Influences
