It would prove to be the kickstart of BAPTIST’s journey. With this introduction of electronics mixed with acoustic drums, guitars and vocals they filled up venues like Paradiso, Tivoli de Helling, Patronaat and Bevrijdingspop Haarlem, the largest free festival in the country.

— a single referring to the most famous city clocks of Haarlem — and by making remixes for bands like The Yukon Club
and The Peach Kings
