Charman’s (real name Rodney de Jong) love for music started at a very early age. When he was 3 years old he already had a vinyl record in his hands. Not a big surprise, because music always played a major role in his family. His uncle is a professional singer in a band and other family members were collecting long playing records.

While listening to different styles of music during his youth he created –big- interest in underground music. Also the lofi hip- hop tunes got his attention. Nowadays Charman play minimal & tech house, so history repeats. Charman decided to buy his first professional dj-gear at a very early age; with help from his father he bought his first dj-set when he was only 7 years old!

This was the start of the next phase: the beginning of Charman’s dj-career! He played, tried different things, failed, tried again and again and again. Charman kept practicing and was unstoppable. At a certain time even the neighbours were dancing in front of Charman’s childhood house! Charman was not only working from home. When he was a bit older he started to follow music lessons. Charman fell in love with drums, and especially the djembe. The djembe is a rope-tuned drum you can play with bare hands, and is originally from West Africa. It can produce a wide variety of sounds, making it a most versatile drum. These versatile drums brought Charman to the next step: producing music!
