Frietboer, a.k.a. Thijs van den Bosch (Etten-Leur, NL), has an affection for hip-hop and distortion, while samples from long-forgotten ’90s dance acts give away
his roots. These elements are recognisable in his music and live shows, coming together as a wall of noise which he likes to call “boombapcore”.
About 5 years ago, in 2007, Frietboer decided to expand his range and work on more diverse projects. Over the period 2007 – 2010, he produced 5 mixtapes, called “Frietboerism 1/5”. Following the completion of Part 5, he went on to arrange a bigger project—“Fiks”—in collaboration with 25 musicians and vocalists. A documentary on this project is available at Frietboerism: Fiks (in Dutch). One of his latest remixes is for the famous Dutch group Acid Junkies.
