Boris Acket started playing drums when he was six years old, posessed by the four to the floor and latin beats. His dad knew the man behind the anual Pinkpop festival in Landgraaf, Netherlands.
And so it became an anual tradition to visit this festival. Pinkpop was his first taste to what electronic music could be. Moby was programmed as headliner on the second day of the festival. Boris was blown away by the amount of bass, the beats, and the repeating samples in the music.
Boris Acket immediatly searched for a sequencer to try and make this music by himself. It became the very amateuristic ‘magix music maker deluxe’, but it provided him with a drumcomputer, an effect rack, a couple of soft synths and a terrible sampler. Turntables and a mixer were also added to his setup.
Boris Acket entered a talent competition, using the mixer in MMMDL to solo and mute the different audio tracks and hereby building the tracks live. A programmer of the , and pkomst festival scouted him in 2003. The festival took place in the Jaarbeurs, Utrecht, Netherlands. At that time Boris was producing both breaks and experimental Drum&Bass. Again using Magix as the base of the live act, but adding scratches and live drums to it.
After this Boris Acket produced more and more tracks, bought Reason, Logic Pro 7, and a professional laptop. Begin 2006 he released a white label on his own ‘th4thd recordings’. An album with 10 tracks reaching from house to triphop and breaks to drum&bass.
More recently Boris Acket teamed up with Sebastiaan Smink to form the duo Loops. He is also the man behind Brand!(live), bringing you heating techno/house music live out of a laptop via cables 'n' amps to your ears. And then with a bit of luck to your feet.
