Born in 1979, Adriaan Baussens fell in love with music at a young age. Growing up with his grandparents he was exposed to his grandfather’s huge collection of instrumental music including Vangelis, Jean-Michel Jarre, Montovani, James Last and many more. At the Age of 12 a teacher discovered that Adriaan had the ability to play the melodies of songs he heard instantly on a recorder flute but when his grandfather bought him his first Casio keyboard things started to happen. At the age of 14 he met Frank, who worked in a local Hifi shop as a technician. Frank, also a passionate Vangelis, Jarre and Enigma fan, had a fully equipped home studio and invited Adriaan to come check it out, this would become a life changing moment. Ever since Frank showed him the sonic possibilities of Samplers, Sequencers (Atari St-1040fm Running Cubase) and Synthesizers, a new world opened up. Frank was like a mentor to him and they started a project called The N.S.E (The New Synthesizer Experience) and they enjoyed a few local performances and sent some demo tapes. Adriaan's obsession for synthesizers led him to learn all he could about sound design and production and there wasn't a day that went by without him being in his homemade studio, absorbing the multitude of possibilities from synthesis. . He is also know as a label owner of Vesta Records (https://www.vestarecords.com/), Vesta Lux, Frekency and Rpo Records.
