While working through his struggles, his musical passion would always resurface. Through the years he was always busy making music and learning new stuff, but at a slow and steady pace.
Inspired by Avicii, Don Diablo, the Swedish House Maffia, Martin Garrix and the sounds of electronic dance music, Schalk started 2018 with the name "Schalk-E" trying to find his way in the EDM world. People were always positive about his style and music, right from the very first track he created.
He always imagines standing behind the decks, in front of an audience of people who have fun and dance on his music or the music he plays. In his own words: "I get an indescribable feeling when I close my eyes and see my audience having a great time!".
