Venomenal was born as Geert Huizenga and grew up in a small town in the most northern part of The Netherlands. As a little boy Venomenal was inspired by his father to listen and make all types of music. As a result the young Dutchman started playing the piano at the age of twelve. It wasn’t love at first sight with dance music though. Young Geert was inspired by Deadmau5, but started to produce pop and rock music in the beginning. After a small break he discovered house music and with that Axwell. And that’s how productions such as Gameboy were born. Meeting the guys from Magnificence spurred him on and resulted in a meeting with Marcus Schössow later on. In the mean while Geert also applied for the conservatory in Enschede and actually got admitted.
