Martijn van den Berg, also known as Graven Bend was born in Zwolle in the year of '86. Living in Nunspeet, he grew up as a normal boy. Going to school, playing soccer and basketball and learning to play drums and percussion.
He was already reaching his 21st birthday when he decided to do something with his biggest passion, music! He bought his first DJ set, and practiced for a couple of weeks. Then the owner of the local club / bar called, and told Martijn that he could be a resident DJ at that club / bar. And so he did.
In the years following, Martijn grew as a DJ, and finally decided that the underground styles are more his cup of tea. In 2011 he signed a contract at a Booking Agency called HotSenses Bookings, and in 2012 his first record deal at Twisted Shuffle Records. His first track, Durumtum, even reached number 23 in the worldwide Techhouse top 100 charts.
Martijn is also the founder of the Vektor platform, which he started in 2013. He thinks that the difference between his local music culture and the more 'city-wise' music culture is too big, and that needs to be changed. In the future he hopes to expand the company Vektor, and provide an Artist Agency, Record Label and the already famous Vektor events.
As a DJ , Martijn played at a couple of big venues already. Club Lido ( Holland Casino Amsterdam ) , Studio80 ( Amsterdam ), Panama ( Amsterdam ) and Sugarfactory ( Amsterdam ) are some of these places.
