Born in Munich, Sebastian Schnitzenbaumer, aka BELP, partially grew up on the Seychelles Islands off the coast of East Africa. Educated in classical piano, those two gravitational poles, European and African influences, became the basis for his musical development. Having traveled extensively with a closer connection to London over the years, BELP kept his base in Munich, becoming part of a small alternative scene questioning the predominantly rich and posh surface of the city. Blending jazz, dub, and noise, an emphasis on darkness in his broken beat-oriented works evolved as a reaction to a rather hedonistic society preferring warm and uplifting sounds.
