Living in the small town IJsselstein in the Netherlands, Wiwek is known for fusing electronic elements with tropical rhythms to create a distinctive and refreshing sound, which he likes to call “Jungle Terror”. The jungle terror style, created by himself, got inspired by his own Indian roots in combination with the love for Tribal House and Hip-Hop music.
After releasing the highly anticipated tracks “Angry Birdz” and “On Your Mark”, two tracks that were among the most played tunes at Miami Music Week 2014, the Jungle Terror sound left its mark on the rapidly changing electronic music scene.

Besides the massive support from the scene and fans it was the soundtrack and main point of focus for the impressive short movie “Still In The Cage” directed by the very talented Jodeb.
