d'Z

Born to a conservative family in Rotterdam, gateway to Europe, the life of Dutch drummer and composer Hans-Peter de Zeeuw a.k.a d'Z changed at the age of nine when he took his first drum lesson. He sat down behind the drumkit, the feel of the drumstick comfortable as if they had been waiting for this moment to meet.
He knew he was destined to be a drummer. By 19, d’Z attended the largest conservatory for pop, jazz and world music in Europe, being taught by leading musicians of the Netherlands. He thrived while exploring the richness of music’s different styles & genres. It wasn’t long before d'Z was a sought-after drummer known for his inherent sense of groove and ability to allow fellow musicians to shine. With his career as a professional drummer in full swing, d’Z took to composing his own music. Giving voice to the melodies that filled him and finding inspiration from Incognito, Steely Dan, The Brand New Heavies, Tower of Power and Gino Vannelli.
It wasn't until the summer of 2016, d'Z decided to record. His mandate was simple. An EP of music made without concessions. He hand chose five original tunes with the Jazz-Funk flavor he so loved and went straight to his favorite producer, Raoul Soentken. The two began making plans to record “Connected” using some of Holland’s best musicians. In the very early stages of the journey, it was clear each song demanded a different vocalist which would prove to be a challenge the duo took on with gusto. The participation of Katie Léone (Incognito, The Brand New Heavies, Anastacia), lifted the project to a higher level. There was a buzz forming in the local music scene. Comments like “What a pleasant surprise”, “This is a HOT production” and “You guys sound brilliant on this”, were heard over and over again. After having recorded four out of five tunes (with Freddi Lubitz, a German singer/kick-ass bass player, Ingmar Glerum, a Dutch young vocal/guitar talent and Adriana Romeijn, a well-known singer in the Netherlands) there was one song proving difficult to find the right vocalist.
Searching for the perfect fit, d’Z asked two times Grammy nominee Sandra St Victor (Prince, The Family Stand, Chaka Khan) to lend her soulful voice to the title song “Connected”. She accepted and the rest, as they say, is history!
d’Z’s much-anticipated album “Connected” is released June 2nd, 2018. With his often socially conscious lyrics and groove-based songs, d’Z feels the need to reach out, connect and – if only for a brief time – give people a place to feel love, hope and lightness.
Album: Connected (2018)
“ d’Z’s New Orleans Groove Jazz Funk sound isn’t something that you’d necessarily expect to come out of the Netherlands, yet the Arnhem based songwriter, producer and drummer composed one of the most tantalisingly perfect anthems to introduce the summer. I can quite honestly say that never a Jazz Funk track have I been bowled over by the lyrics at the same time as the massive sound which creates an up-beat cacophony of high vibe electricity.”
A&R Factory

"Amazing, amazing soulful, sultry vocals of Katie Léone. Keeps you coming back for more as you hear her sing from lows to highs and all in between. Absolutely ABOVE PERFECT collaboration by the entire band WOW!. WJMX-DB Smooth Jazz Boston Global Internet Radio would be honored to broadcast this MASTERPIECE track."

Canton Synths   
Canton Synths is the work of AJ, a musician and filmmaker from Canton in Cardiff, UK. A prolific songwriter, AJ is addicted to creating the kind of music he wants to hear. Oh, and crack. Influences include synthwave, dreampop, postpunk and alt-rock. AJ lives in Cardiff with tolerant wife Sonia; dogs Joe and Phoebe, who get way more likes and shares than AJ’s music ever does; and Taffy Gaddafi, an African Grey who sits in his cage listening to Classic FM like Hannibal Lector, heckling AJ whenever he tries to record vocals.
About the EP, ‘There Wolf, There Castle’ ‘There Wolf, There Castle’ is the second EP from Canton Synths (following 2017’s ‘They’re Coming to Get You, Barbara’). The four track EP was recorded over the course of 2018 and sees new collaborations with Vince Dyke, who had previously played guitar on the 2017 track ‘Ebbw Vale’; bassist Dylan McCarthy; and singers Cat Southall and Amanda Sanderson. Cover art is by Vince Dyke.
The title of the EP is a quote from one of AJ’s favourite films, ‘Young Frankenstein’.
About Be Leavable  The lead single from the EP, Be Leavable is an indie dreampop number that charts the emotional steps in the breakdown of an obsessive relationship. When looking for a powerful female vocalist for the track, AJ’s friend Den Slade (Last Great Dreamers) recommended his Sal bandmate, Cat Southall. Cat agreed and delivered the vocals within a week. AJ invited the filmmaker Norman J Warren to Cardiff to present a restored cut of cult Brit horror ‘Satan’s Slave’. The pair have kept in contact, and Norman kindly gave permission for his film to be used in Be Leavable’s music video.
Vocals by Cat Southall; guitar by Vince Dyke; bass and pad by Dylan McCarthy; everything else by AJ.
