(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).
