While Wouda’s debut release might be tucked away at the back of the label’s catalogue, the sunny bounce of Bum On The Carpet’s ‘Mood Swing’ 12” is what kick-started the whole Dopeness Galore adventure.
Already studying audio engineering and mastering, Wouda knew he wanted to work with sounds at an early age. But recently moving to high-end mastering at Brandenburg Mastering, particularly inspired by cutting vinyl, is what took this an huge step further.
While running the label, mastering a wide range of great artists and throwing party’s since the early Met Je Neus In De Boter to the more recent Butter, Womb and Warm Up in Amsterdam his vision has only gotten wider. Taking inspiration from visionary greats like Prince, Quincy Jones, Fela Kuti, Theo Parrish, King Tubby and Larry Levan, he’s dead set on a mission to seek out the heavy blissful vibes, whoever makes them.
