Frits Wentink has been one of The Netherlands’ most steady artists since his first release in 2012. As the head honcho of both Will & Ink and Bobby Donny, he is known for pushing quality leftfield electronic music. His innovation makes him stand out among other artist within his genre, and what’s more, he also has multiple aliases – Felix Lenferink and Urkelle – making him an all-rounder who knows how to deliver every time. In 2015, he released 4 EPs, 3 remixes, a double LP, a slew of EPs under different names and also released records by others on his own labels – all while playing DJ sets all over Europe.
As far as defying conventions goes, Frits is on a whole new level of realness. Exploring into the world of fuzzy synths and drunk organs, all drenched in his signature and ever so dusty grooves. A little more inventive and out-there than the average house jams.
Throughout releases on Heist Wolf and Bobby Donny, Frits has consistently drawn for his arsenal of synths, effects and drum machines and through doing so has stitched a sound characterized by raw drums, analogue bass tones and odd, lo-fi samples, brimming with gently wobbling piano samples, tightly swung drums and thick, brazen bass lines that continue to re-define genres.
