The Trio’s own compositions are modern jazz related, combined with expressionistic, explosive improvisations. Their debut EP tells a story through different chapters. Every composition represents a story, adding great value to the overall adventure of their debut EP. Passion and emotion is put in their music which results in creating a unique and submersive atmosphere. Great detail is to be heard in their storytelling which results in a distinguished sound. (A more elaborate explanation can be read in the subsection ‘Our story’) Simio Jazz Trio is: Tim van Emmerloot: Drummer/Composer Sergio Abdoelrahman: Pianist/Composer Cas Jiskoot: Bassist
Kiki Bonanza bio: Two masked women- Rotterdam south side roughness meets Caribbic Arubian delight. Obsessed with creating loco beats, they make raw electronic music free from inhibition. From hiphop to hardcore gabba, from electro to ragga, madness is guaranteed. Their lyrics (dutch and papiamento) are focused on the objectification of the male sex. *** Put on some Masks and harass dem Bois *** They are KIKI BONANZA!!! * apple beer and menthol cigarette infused -Two masked women-
Jules Fair is powerful, sensual and slightly vulnerable. Her music style is influenced by trance, techno, soul, rock, jazz and classical. A combination of a powerful voice with brilliant, sparkling sounds and a catchy beat. She studied classical singing at the Conservatorium in Utrecht in the Netherlands. Already during her studies she started recording and performing other music styles with various artists like Chew Fu (Peter Kardolus), Steve Clisby and others, exploring the possibilities of her voice. She also had the privilege to work closely with highly talented artists in the Netherlands like Jeroen Molenaar, Xander Buvelot, Stefan Blankenstijn, Patrick Drabe, Arno Schlijper and many others. All these experiences make her an alround singer with a large vocal range and many possibilities. Today she is writing her own music and is working together with amongst others DJ Swen van der Endt and Decerno on various dance tracks.

Met een karakteristiek stemgeluid en rijkdom aan ideeen brengt ze een sfeervolle smeltkroes van singer-songwriter/pop/alternative/jazz met een flinke dosis ziel. SARA BONNE klinkt persoonlijk,intens en dynamisch.
A friend once told me: "When I play, my mind is silent". His statement has never left my mind. As counter-intuitive as it may seem, producing sound in my experience does lead to the kind of silence a lot of us seem to yearn for. Well, at least I do. Silence makes for inspired art, as art makes for inspired silence. Where there's silence, there's room for others, room for sharing, for true connection without prejudice, without egos clashing, without any other things that distract us from the mere essence of our existence. Hence one could say that it's silence that I strive for with my playing. I'm not there yet, but being on that road fascinates and inspires me ever more and more. - Emiel Scholsberg, december 2016
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 "plain rave" or “boombapcore”.

Like you, multi-gold album artist and Billboard “Best Of” awards recipient Tom “Jamaica Funk” Browne has an unstoppable passion for new music, one that has kept him on tour and in the recording studio of late. Is it timelessness that keeps the music flowing? Indeed! With over three decades of recordings and sharing the concert stage with luminary figures of jazz music, Tom Browne continues to captivate listeners as an entertainer who has successfully mixed stage presence and musical artistry with a sincere audience connection and warmth. “People don’t just come to hear your music,” says Browne, “they come to connect with you!” Tom is perhaps best known for what music icon George Benson said of his “believability in any musical style; his ability to communicate!” This ability to emerse ones-self into the musical era, style and dreamscape of a composition, and then artistically create as though you are perfectly at home in that location, is a rarity among musicians. Perhaps this ability is resultant of Browne’s upbringing near Jamaica, New York where greats like Count Basie lived on one block and James Brown on another. “It was the merger of so many musical influences and styles that created the Jamaica scene, and certainly my approach” says Browne.
