Schalk Johannes Horstink, a.k.a SkalkiE, was born in 1988 in Johannesburg, South Africa. In 1993 he moved to the Netherlands with his family, and is currently still living there.
Schalk is an EDM producer who creates his own tracks and collaborates with other artists. At the age of 13 he started writing rap/hip-hop lyrics and that's where his passion for music began. He wrote and recorded his own tracks until he was 21, and made several records with some of his friends. Around the age of 22 he had a lot of personal things going on in his life, and splitted up with his friends who he made music with. He was lost for some years, trying to find his way back, but he never lost his passion for music!
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!".
