“I spent my life playing in clubs. In my last years, night by night, I began to explore.
…and now these nights have become Explorer Club.” [Vince Blakk]

Growing up in the 80s, he was part of the first generation to be introduced to computer technology (such as the Commodore 64… uuhh!). This inspired him to create his own electronic sound and craft something completely new. With a soft spot for artists that combined genres, such as those in electronic with pop/rock, (Mike Oldfield, The Rockets, Kraftwerk) Vince began to study music and learn guitar at the age of 12. He grew up playing guitar for a variety of rock bands and studying music until he graduated as a sound engineer with skills specialising in electric guitar.
From there, Vince went on to study and work across the world from Italy to England and Holland to Germany until he found his calling in 2006 and began to DJ. Influenced by the likes of Makus Schulz, Mauro Picotto and Paul Van Dyk, Vince built up a wealth of experience of performing on radio stations and online as well as to growing audiences at live shows.
