Sebastian Bronk has become a real talent within the dance music scene. He has delivered some top quality tracks to some very influential labels such as Ones To Watch, Maximize Records and other big platforms. Sebastian delivers his tracks around the Bass House vibes and this is one sound which continues to grow month on month within dance music. Now he opens up about his latest tracks, his label and much more.

Congrats on the new release Good Vibes on GOONS Music, what inspired the production of this track?

Thanks a lot! I’m really into Bass-House lately but my dance floors doesn’t always allow me to play Bass-House for an hour. Good Vibes gives me a way to combine different styles, so this track is completely produced on the crowds I play for.

To introduce you to the audience a little, please tell us about how and why you started to produce and perform in the electronic music scene! What have been your focus points and goals when starting out?

When I was 10 years old I played during party’s in peoples living rooms and school parties. In 2006 I left to Curacao for a few months, there I learned playing on the cdi’s. Back in Holland a club owner gave me the change to play his venue. When I started playing weekly gigs I played all over Holland. Producing was not a big thing back in that time. After a while it wasn’t possible to grow without producing music. EDM was upcoming with the SHM hype, so I started producing completely focused on the dancefloor. This is what i’m still doing nowadays.

You are a Dutch producer and DJ, does the electronic music scene in the Netherlands influence your style or choices? The success of many Dutch DJs can be seen as inspirational or competitive, what is your view on this?

To be honest it’s been both. It is inspiring to see that hard work pays off. But indeed, there are so many others so the competition is big. This makes me want to work even harder though, so in the end it is all good vibes!

What is your idea for GOONS Music as a label and how does this work for you in collaboration with other artists and talents?

Nowadays artist have to release a lot of tracks to get noticed. GOONS Music gave me the opportunity to release my own music whenever I want. There are so many talented producers who send their tracks to big labels and don’t get noticed. We can give them the platform they deserve, we don’t think about styles really, if we like it we release it.

Your latest release with Needs No Sleep and Dirty Harry ‘Trashed’ is received very well! Tell us a little about how the track came about?

That’s a funny story. Needs No Sleep came to Holland for ADE, we didn’t know each other. His manager hooked us up. So I arranged a studio and the first conversation we had was in the car driving to the studio. He had the Trashed vocal on his computer and we both started out finding some samples, transferred everything to my laptop. I started arranging the samples and Needs No Sleep worked on the bass line on the keyboard. We worked 2 hours on the track, then I had to go back to Amsterdam for an ADE meeting. We both worked on the track separately back home and didn’t found anything better, so we agreed that the track was actually good from the start! Uprise music picked it up, and the rest is history…

How do you decide on collabs with other artists like with ‘Trashed’?  And how does the production process work in these scenarios?

Like I said Trashed was different from everything I did before. For example, a few months ago I went to Cologne (Germany) for a writing camp. I know a few talented producers from Cologne, we hooked up online, found a place to produce and had a lot of fun. But no project is the same, that is what makes the journey exciting.

What inspires you when producing your bass house sound? Do you keep in mind the audience and possibly club settings or take into account label preferences? 

I produce for the dance floor, this is mostly because of my DJ background. Don’t be surprised if I release a 150 bpm track in next couple of months. I really love the energy, Housy vibe and the aggression in the Bass-House. For me it’s impossible to produce for a specific label, keeping in mind that when you make a sound a label releases, they already found an artist who does that and you’re not unique anymore.

Now I know you are only really getting started on the scene, but do you ever think there may be a time where you get “sick and tired” of the music industry as a whole? Or do you feel it will always be a passion?

I’ve been playing music for such a long time now, I’m aware there are some negative things going on. But this is in every genre and even in every profession. Music really is my passion, so I am sure I will stay around for while.

Any final Good Vibes you’d like to share with the audience? Upcoming events or releases you can tell us about?

I’m all about the Good Vibes, you can catch me smiling at Starbeach, Paperclip Festival and Latin Village the next couple of weeks. About my releases keep an eye on my socials, there’s so much coming up, for free downloads to originals and collabs on bigger labels.
