Themaddeejay started playing the guitar at 5 years old in the city of Maastricht Netherlands.
Later on he also learned to play the drums.
After many years playing in bands, mostly in the Heavy Metal, Rock and Blues genre,
he found it was hard to keep bands together and to land some gigs,
so it was time for a different approach as an artist.
In 1996 he went solo first as Dj Nol,
being a DJ for 3 months he joined a DJ competition at the now closed
Independent Club Backstage in Maastricht, Netherlands,
that was when he realised that this was his calling as an artist.
Later he changed his artist name to THEMADDEEJAY
and started producing his own tracks,
mainly in the TECHNO genre
and is doing so for 25 years now.
With releases on
LETS TECHNO Records
and his own personal label
