(XXXTentacion, Timbaland, Taryn Manning)
Koen, originally from the Netherlands, moved to Los Angeles aged 19 to start a successful career in the music business. Beginning with attending music school at the age of 6 and accelerating through his teenage years as a music producer, Koen’s love for music production ultimately led to a deep passion for the art of mixing down music.
Short after moving to LA, Koen gained the friendship of legendary GRAMMY® Award-winning mixing engineer Dave Pensado (Michael Jackson, Beyoncé, Elton John). Dave’s friendship proved to be a perfect starting point in Koen’s career as a mixing engineer.
Since then he caught the attention of 3x GRAMMY Award-nominated producer Dem Jointz (Dr. Dre, Janet Jackson, Rihanna) leading to Koen becoming the in-house mixer for Dem’s “U Made Us what We Are” brand.
With his extensive technical, creative background and humble approach; Koen continues to work with the who’s who of today’s popular music and is a trusted face for top pro audio brands and an officially listed partner with Apple® for Mastered for iTunes® (MFiT).

„VPRE-73: Sounds like rich dark chocolate syrup! Brings lushful body to thin sounding vocals.“
"The VLA2A is the closest emulation of the legendary original LA2A I have heard so far due to the brilliant mimicking of it's analogue saturation as well as its slight pumping effect. Well, well done!"
„The Blueface and blackface comps are great Ashly emulations, just thickness in the right places! I love the combination of the VLA2A and the Blueface comp in series on lead vocals. Phat controlled vocals!“
