Sander was born on July 21, 1982. He graduated from grammar school (gymnasium) in 2000 and is currently majoring in biology at the University of Leiden. He lives in The Hague, a pretty big city on the coasts of The Netherlands.

When Gold introduced him to eurodance in 1994, he became interested in dance music for the first time in his life (unless you count MC Hammer :P). After a while, the happy hardcore days came, which formed the roots of his gabber love. In those years, he really lost interest in eurodance and most of the commercial happy hardcore (a few exceptions here), but he's currently into most styles of house music (hardcore, hardstyle, hardtrance, techno, trance, happy hardcore etc.). He owns a fair pile of old gabber CDs, including a lot of the Thunderdomes. In 1996 he started composing gabber music in MOD format, but unfortunately he stopped doing this a LONG time ago because it took up a lot of his time.

His favorite style is, like Gold would call it "94-97 hardcore". It's hard, it's real and it has this funky happy atmosphere around it. He started going to house parties in October 2000 and has been seen on several parties now, among which the Sweetlake parties, Innercity, Mysteryland and Qlubtempo.
