Makèz is known for their ability to smoothly blend the wide range of music that has always inspired them - soul, jazz, disco - with classic house sounds from the genre's early days. The Amsterdam-based duo grabbed the attention of the Dutch club scene at a young age, and, after releasing their debut EP, Different Planets, in 2019, they found their name quickly crossing borders, then spreading around the world.
Since, they've released on hometown label Heist Recordings as well as New York City's Let's Play House, and they've continued to see support from established artists such as Seth Troxler, Chez Damier, and Detroit Swindle.
The paths of these harmoniously contrasted individuals, Jan-Willem Mulder and Kees van 't Klooster, crossed in their early teens. From the moment they met on, they've enthusiastically explored the music industry in the broadest sense of the word, first with DJ and live sets, rife with self-made tracks and inventive edits, and, more recently, with increasingly ambitious, expansive studio projects.
