My story

My name is Joep van den Boom. I am a young music producer and songwriter based in the Netherlands. I compose and produce music fragments for the media. Examples of productions are jingles, trailer-music and commercials for different types of customers - companies, filmmakers and artists. The fragments vary between a few seconds and a few minutes.

I started my music rollercoaster in 2014, surfing on the internet and watching YouTube clips about Hardwell and Tiesto. Fascinated by their intriguing melodies and refreshing sounds, I was inspired to enter the world of music production. I started producing my first tracks in FL Studio under the name Difterbeat at the age of 13. The films The Lion King and The Greatest Showman made me fall in love with music production even more. The films opened my eyes as to what you can express with music: true emotions. My biggest role models are Hans Zimmer, Ben Pasek and Justin Paul.

Currently, I am studying Bands & Artist Producer at ArtEZ Conservatorium Enschede. This year is full of recording sessions, mixing and producing song for artists and for the media. Recently, I also started my own music production company JvdB Productions. There is so much more in the world of music for me to explore. Everyday is a new day for me to get better at what I love: producing and composing music and writing songs.

Detroit | Trailer

This trailer is all about artificial intelligence. To enhance the sense of digitalization of the world, I used many synthesizers and distortion, mainly in the intro. The voice is the main part of this trailer, so in the beginning the sounds are mainly accompanying. However, you do get a sense of sensation because of all the sounds and melodies which are being listed. The climax exists of many string instruments, big drums and many impacts. I chose to do this because the music must create a grand, epic and threatening impression: “The robots are taking over the world.”

Detroit | Trailer

Deze trailer staat helemaal in de ban van artificial intelligence. Om het gevoel van digitalisering van de wereld te versterken, heb ik voornamelijk in het intro veel gebruik gemaakt van synthesizers en distortion. De stem moet de voorgrond hebben, dat is waarom in het begin de muziek voornamelijk begeleidend is. Toch krijg je wel een gevoel van sensatie door alle geluiden en sounds die er steeds bijkomen. De climax breekt uit met veel strijkinstrumenten, grote drums en veel impacts. Hier koos ik voor omdat de muziek een groots, epische en dreigende indruk moet wekken: ‘De robots nemen de wereld over.’

Songwriting | Dance/Pop

This summer production particularly showcases energy. I got the inspiration for this song from artists as Mike Williams and Jonas Blue. These artists use a lot of pluck sounds and vary a lot in their percussion patterns. I applied this to give this song a summer feeling. This is also due to the side chain I used and the Parallel compression I used in the mixing proces. This makes the song sound fresh and full of energy. As placeholder I used the vocals of Rise - Jonas Blue. This gives a clear picture of where the song can go with an original topline.

Songwriting | Dance/Pop

Deze zomerse productie straalt nadrukkelijk energie uit. Inspiratie voor deze song komt van Mike Williams en Jonas Blue. Deze artiesten gebruiken veel pluck sounds en varieeen onderandere veel in de percussie. Dit heb ik ook toegepast om dit nummer een zomers gevoel te geven. Dat komt tevens door de sidechain die ik heb toegepast. Ook komt dit door in het mix proces gebruik te maken van onderander Paralelle compressie. Dit zorgt er voor dat de song fris klinkt en veel energie heeft. Als placeholer vocals heb ik de vocals van Rise - Jonas Blue gebruikt. Hierdoor heb je een duidelijk beeld waar de song heen kan met een originele topline.

I wanted to broadcast the specific women pose and independence this clip shows by using very energetic programmed drums. Lots of saturation and transients to increase the energy. For the same reason I specifically chose for the bas guitar and trombones to be the most important instrument. These two instruments are therefore panned to the center as much as possible, in addition to which the electric guitar and the vocal synth that is added are panned very much to the sides, to give it a nice total stereo image.

De women power en zelfstandigheid die deze clip out moet stralen heb ik proberen te repliceren door het gebruik van vol en energiek geprogrammeerde drums. Veel saturation en transients om de energie te verhogen. Ook is de keuze voor het gebruiken van de basgitaar en trombone als belangrijkste instrument hiervoor gemaakt. Deze twee instrumenten staan daarom ook zo veel mogelijk naar het midden gepand, waarnaast de elektrische gitaar en de vocal-synth die erbij komt juist erg naar de sides zijn gepand, om het een mooi totaal stereobeeld te geven.

What clients say

“This dynamic young producer has an innate sense of harmonies and scales. He picks up things without you noticing it and almost effortlessly converts what he sees and hears into different tracks that depicts a certain feeling or purpose. During the production, the keyboard of his synthesizer is an extension of his body and mind. He is a virtuoso, having his fingers playing the keys like he is drawing in loose sand. He always dives right into the musical spectrum and he likes to take people with him on this journey. No rush, but cautiously sneaking on the hunt for the perfect ingredients for each music fragment. No tight plan, but dedication guided by intuition.”
