The 'not-so-mysterious' 24 years old Mitchel Polderman is the person that goes behind the mask of 'stranger', a pseudonym under which he currently produces, plays and spreads his passion, interest and knowledge in Techno music.
Growing up and based in Rotterdam, the birth city of Gabber / Hardcore music, stranger's interest has always been influenced by the harder side of electronical music. Starting collecting records at a young age and playing with audio production for many years under different aliases, the stranger pseudonym was adopted in 2010 and has become his current identity; his main creative output in music.
His current project is his very own 'self reflektion' imprint, which will have its first (physical) release in shops by the end of October 2014. With the second and third release just waiting in line, expect to see many more productions from the likes of stranger and his self reflecting label.
'I believe, whatever doesn't kill you simply makes you.. stranger'
