In The Spotlight

d’Z – “Clean Slate”

Born as Hans-Peter de Zeeuw in Rotterdam, the life of this Dutch drummer and composer changed when he first sat down behind a drum kit aged nine. Having studied pop, jazz and world music and having explored a multitude of genres, he became a sought-after drummer. Inspired by Jazz-Funk legends such as Steely Dan, Brand New Heavies and Tower Of Power, he started composing his own music.

Taken from his debut EP “Connected” and enlisting the vocal talents of Adriana Romijn, his latest single fuses every funky note into a vitalizing musical spectacular. While the polished percussion, sleek strings and creamy keys effortlessly merge together to give the tune a jazzy orchestral smoothness, the bustling brass and the suave, multi-harmonic vocals fill it with vigorous Jazz-Funk zeal.
