Ian Barras Rocks!!!!!
Ian was born and raised in Rotterdam, The Netherlands. Ian’s interest in music was apparent at a early age as he would play with his grandfathers harmonica. His liking to the harmonica was contributed to the many years of his grandfather playing it. His musical interest, at the age of twelve, lead him to start playing with two cassette players and start recording live sets mixed only by using the record and pause button. Onto the age of fourteen were Ian started to DJ at local events and at his school. From the money earned at these events he was able to purchase himself a proper mixer and turntables.
At the age of eighteen he bought his first sampler an Akai S700. Combine that with an Atari computer and a Roland 505 drum computer he started to make simple house music. Working with what he presently had was inspiring Ian to dedicate more time in the process of musical compositions.
