Norman Soares

Norman Soares: Nr.1 Electronic Dance Music Percussionist is back

Norman Soares, born in 1977, half Dutch/Cape Verdian is a unique character. His unstoppable energy as a person comes to surface when experiencing live as well as his entrepreneurial escapades.As an acclaimed Electronic Music Percussionist which took off in 2001, Soares was the first amongst a superb generation live artists. With over 700 performances all around the globe with numerous A-list artists like David Guetta, Hardwell, Benny Rodrigues and Sunnery James & Ryan Marciano. Norman is one of the musicians that have paved the road for many of today’s live musicians in the Electronic Music industry. From Sensation, to Pinkpop, Mysteryland, Dance Valley and many club nights he was and still a force to be reckoned with on the global festival, club and corporate event scene.

“At the time in ’00,  there really was no example  -except for MC’s- to have a sustainable career as a live musician in that music scene. So it was pretty much pioneering. Playing with a DJ is all about knowing when to catch the limelight or when to blend in with the groove. Many live musicians in Electronic Music have the tendency to ‘overplay’. You need to become one with the beat, and one with the DJ’s. Being an electronic music producer gave me a head start by understanding this.”
