Icicle aka Jeroen Snik represents Med School’s Dutch contingent. At the age of 8, Jeroen’s musical muscle was already being primed as he began playing piano and soon stepped behind the drum kit. It wasn’t long until he started making beats using an old school midi setup and aged 15 he became hooked on drum & bass after going to local night “Jungle Galaxy”. After purchasing some turntables and better music-making software, Icicle was well on his way.
Icicle took inspiration from the dirty basslines of the likes of Jonny L and Optical and the intricate drum patterns of Photek & Source Direct. With this approach Icicle’s tech funk sounds were already gaining DJ support from Fabio, London Elektricity, Flight and Commix no less. Quickly realising the ice man’s massive potential, Med School snapped up this flying Dutchman early in 2007 and delivered one of his biggest tunes to date in the shape of the massive bass-heavy dancefloor rinser “So Close”!
Other labels soon took note of Icicle’s fierce production skills and he has gone on to release on Ram, Renegade Hardware, Soul:r, Shogun and plenty more besides. Big!
