"Mixing heavy bass with moments of sparsity, GANZ experiments with a number of unexpected sounds and samples that elevate the complexity of his tracks."
- This Song Is Sick
"Dutch homeboy GANZ can definitely mix things up."
"Slick, crisp and well-produced."
- The AU Review
The guy behind the name 'GANZ' is Jordy Saämena. Hailing from the Netherlands, this Producer/DJ extraordinaire quickly developed a deep love for hip hop and electronica at a young age. After his critically acclaimed debut "Purple Cwtch E.P." dropped on the Terrorhythm label in 2013, GANZ has been on somewhat of a global takeover mission. He released a slurry of his trademark "Flips" of other people's tracks, remixing acts such as What so not ,Flume x Hermitude, A-trak, Snakehips, Alison Wonderland and Crystal fighters and others which skyrocketed him into the global bass music stratosphere. Soon after, Jordy felt the time was right to start putting together some original music, releasing his “Dino War EP” in April 2015. Support for his records have come in from the likes of A-trak , Mr Carmack, Gilles Peterson, Eclair Fifi, Slugabed, Flume, Djemba Djemba, What So Not, Lido, Disclosure, Rustie, Hudson Mohawke and many many more.
GANZ is stubborn and hard-headed - in a positive way – getting him to where he is at the moment. Being so determined also helped him decide to launch his own label in August 2015 aptly called - “The Hard Headed”.
GANZ is always on the lookout to sign new talents who share the same vision as he has – “The hard-headed grind harder.” Besides producing and being a label owner, GANZ is touring all over the world with his DJ and Livesets.
To start 2016 with a bang, GANZ is releasing “GAOBEAR” the first single and video of his forthcoming “GAO” EP at February 5th on The Hard Headed. GAOBEAR a brutal electronic hiphop banger with a featuring of the young and incredibly talented UK rapper “Dusty”, living in Amsterdam.
Before releasing “GAO” EP in April this year, one more single release is planned. This single is going to be a huge collab between GANZ and one of his friends. Who the other artist on the track is will be revealed soon…
GANZ, the future of bass, electronic and hip hop music is as Hard Headed as they come – and thankfully so.
