Kamansi is the alter ego of the Dutch producer and DJ Marc van den Hurk. Although Kamansi mainly listened to hip hop in the early 1980s, he soon switched to electronic music in an attempt to produce music himself.
Characteristic of his music is that it always contains melodic and harmonic elements. He gets inspiration for his music from synth pop from the 80s, happy hardcore from the 90s and trance from the zero's, and the techno of the present. Kamansi mainly uses hardware synthesizers and drum computers for his music productions.
