Bastiaan van Vuuren (born 18 September 1999) professionally known as BASTIAN BENJAMIN is an electronic music producer who exchanged his lego at a young age for making music on the piano. Soon Bastiaan went to making electronic music and he started dj’ing. As free as that was his upbringing, his music is now also. Genres are not taken into account. It is the energy and emotion that counts.
When Bastiaan was just five years old he started taking piano lessons. His piano teacher (now known under his stagename "The Hardstyle pianist") learned him besides playing piano how to compose his own music and to tell stories through music. At the age of 12 Bastiaan started making electronic music. 4 years later he joined a platform for creative teenagers and young adults in his hometown Deventer called NDC. On this platform Bastiaan learned to collaborate with other musicians and record them in the studio. After high school Bastiaan went to a pre-education music school in Best (Netherlands) where he learned to create a vision for his music and how to create a unique sound. He started making alternative electronic music in that year and he did his first release under the name BASTIAN BENJAMIN. In 2018 Bastiaan got accepted at the Rockacademie in Tilburg.
