Santoz Sambuka (born Jeroen ter Heide) developed his passion
for music at a very young age. On his sixth birthday he received a drum set,
took lessons and only a year later he played in a band.
Unfortunately, the band fell apart and Santoz decided to concentrate on
putting his own tracks together.
At age 7 he had his first `encounter´ with the Fruityloops program. He progressed quickly and got in touch with other producers. At age 12 he released his first tracks which were sold and downloaded around the world, including Holland, Spain, Malta, Brazil, Switzerland, Austria, Germany and even the U.S.A.
Currently Santoz plays in large clubs (both in the Netherlands and abroad) and Santoz has even been invited to play at a venue near Cape Town, South Africa for one month later this year. He also plays at important parties with names like: Afrojack, Sidney Samson, Vato Gonzalez, Bobby Burns, PartySquad, Sunnery James and Ryan Marciano. At the same time he continues to develop his own music. You can recognize his tracks and live sets by their hard dirty sounds, a tight beat and a hint of Latin.
