Awakenings Festival 2019
From the first year of his life Jeng Do got in touch a lot with jazz at home, from John Coltrane, Archie Shepp and McCoy Tyner to name a few. Also from the age of six he started to play the piano and the fundament for a great love for music and for developing talent was laid. That love grew from pop, rock, hip hop, trip hop, ambient and the first house to later also soulfull drum'n'bass, deep electro and various kinds of techno. When he was fourteen computer music software instantly gave him the opportunity to create complete tracks. A dream coming true and the beginning of an impressive number of productions in various styles was there. Melodious chill music with his own vocals, jazzy breaks and hip hop, sensitive house, intriging electro, Detroit techno and other kinds of techno, with influences from many artists from all kinds of genres, yet always expressing his own feelings through his music. Many years of versatile, dedicated and passionate producing have lead to Jeng Do having developed an own distinctive sound that he now exposes through his techno-based live sets. In 2007 he started to make a name for himself as Jeng Do by performing these qualitative live sets, filled with deep techno with a unique drive that can make dancefloors go wild, like in Off Corso in Rotterdam (NL) and on Solar Festival in Roermond (NL). Halfway the year he was signed by Sound Architecture Bookings and also his productions didn't stay unnoticed. He was scouted to participate in Hollands biggest music contest, "Grote Prijs van Nederland" and beside that, tracks of his were signed for a release on Sound Architecture Records, SA 007 Nine Five EP. From September 2007 up to now he played live on events like Amsterdam Dance Event, Planet Rose at Doornroosje in Nijmegen and on a regular base in Catwalk in Rotterdam. More and more music is being released digitally, and on his own label Tuneskin tracks of his will be released soon. So.. stay tuned!
