Born and raised in Amsterdam, Mendel bought his first record player from a Waterlooplein market stall at the tender age of 10. He played his first set at 15 in hip-hop temple Cafe De Duivel. In these formative years, Mendel immersed himself in studying the origins of hip-hop, broadening his musical horizon. He got a job at Waxwell Records, a second-hand vinyl institution, and fell further in love with disco, boogie and house - the Black American sounds that have shaped him - as well as musical styles from even further afield. His sets nowadays reflect this broad spectrum of sounds; music that can be plucked from anywhere in the last fifty years, meticulously mixed for maximum emotion.
