My name is Reinout Pellis, I’m 18 years old, born and raised in the Netherlands and I love playing and producing music. I had arrived in Cape Town on the 6th of January and I will leave on the 2nd of March.
I’ve always had a passion for music. My dad used to give me some CD’s of U2, Michael Jackson, Mozart and DJ Tiësto. I got into music when I was 7 years old. I started playing the acoustic guitar. A few years later I started playing the piano as well.
At the age of 12 I realized I wanted to play and create the music I like to hear at parties. I started taking DJ lessons and practiced a lot.
When I was 13 years old I started singing in a choir as a soprano. We went to the UK with the choir and performed at beautiful places like Westminster Abbey and St. Pauls Cathedral.
At the age of 14 I got the 3rd place in a local DJ contest in my hometown.
A year later I started getting performances at some local venues.
I still perform there a lot. At those venues I play all kinds of genres. I’ve played in a lot of clubs in my region.
At the moment I’m playing a lot of Techno, Disco and Tech House.
I perform under the name of Ryan Rayvo
My goals for the project are to get more knowledge about the music industry and to become a better producer. I also want to meet other people in the music industry and discuss different perspectives and strategies in the creative process.
I hope I will learn a lot at Nash Records and have a great time with all the nice people around me in the beautiful Cape Town.
