Composer/producer Perquisite was born in Amsterdam in the spring of 1982 and started to create beats at age 14. Having played the cello since his early youth, he has always been involved with and inspired by all kinds of music, ranging from classical and 60’s music to Hip Hop, Soul and Jazz
You can describe Perquisite as a Hip Hop / Nu-Jazz and Trip Hop artist. Together with rapper Pete Philly he created the album Mindstate in 2005 and Mystery Repeats in 2007. Some say they developed a new kind of urban music which is very soulful and from the heart.
