He is a travel enthusiast and in his spare time he enjoys 'travel hacking' and improving his music production skills.
Dennis and Edwin first met in the summer of 2016, when they were introduced to each other by a mutual musician contact. Dennis helped kick start Edwin’s music production career as his mentor and instructor (and still is to this day!), and they quickly found that they had many interests in common and fast became good friends. Their initial idea of holding a small ‘producers only’ meetup as a creative workshop in an exotic location blossomed into Soundcation – a place where professionals and new rising talent can network, learn, and geek out about production in a supportive environment.
Since September of 2017, Dennis and Edwin have hosted over 10 unique music production retreats across 5 different countries. They’ve hosted retreats in Amsterdam (The Netherlands), Berlin (Germany), Bali (Indonesia), Phuket (Thailand) and even in the mountains of Bulgaria! Each and every retreat has a different set of instructors, but the goal is always to provide an blend of education, networking, and fun.
