Dutch producer Wiwek has made an indelible mark on Dance music. His name has become synonymous with the “Jungle Terror” subgenre, although over the years he has expanded his unique sound to build an eclectic and multi-genre-spanning discography. After early success via Diplo’s Mad Decent record label and Skrillex’s Owsla, Wiwek has gone on to have tremendous success, both as a solo artist, as well as on collaborations with legendary EDM icons and as part of his duo with Mike Cervello, LUSU. We’re proud that he’s been an FL Studio user from early on, and we’re pleased to welcome him as an official FL Studio Power User.

Tell us about yourself and how you got into music.
I produce and DJ under the names Wiwek and LUSU (collaborative project with Mike Cervello). I got into music by hearing dance music on the radio as a kid. Back then I thought they made all the sounds on the spot and mixed it together — that’s where my obsession began.
How did you start using FL Studio & what does it mean to your productions?
I started using FL Studio when my brother introduced me to it. Before that, I made music on the Playstation on a program called Music 2000 until my brother gave me the chance to go to the next level with FL Studio. I have been using it for my whole life since and it has become an extension of my brain.

Tell us about your production environment and the gear you use.
I work in a little studio with near field and far field speakers. Most of the time I use the Komplete Kontrol S88 MK2. It’s very easy for my workflow because of the ability to navigate through all your plugins.
