Erik Arbores: 14-year-old Dutch Phenom
While tuning into ElectricArea, on Sirius XM, on my ride home last night I heard an EDM track that made me take the radio volume up a couple of notches. The song titled “Bliss” was by a Dutch DJ named Erik Arbores. Once the track was over I was in pure astonishment. Erik Arbores was only 14 years old.
After checking out his write-up over at Armada Music I became even more impressed. Not only is this kid a musical savant he is also an educational giant. Erik started crafting his musical talent, at the age of 4, when he started to learn how to play the piano. At the age of 11, he took his piano skills and combined them with electronic music that he mixed on the computer program Fruity Loops. This is where he started to get his love for creating EDM tracks. His big break happened when he showed one of his tracks to Armin van Buuren on the Dutch TV show “De Wereld Draait Door.” Soon after that, at the age of 14, he decided to sign to van Buuren’s label Armada Music where he released his very impressive “Take It” E.P. Oh yeah, he started to take courses at the University of Delft in that same year too.
