Kicking off our first ever b2b on the ABYSS Presents series are the producer and brother combo of Thomas and Jeroen Snik who are known independently for their productions and mixing under their aliases Kracht and Cadans.

Both born and raised in Nijmegen, The Netherlands – they have a rich history in music, with Thomas originally finding his feet in the trance scene as many Techno producers often do, and Jeroen through the Drum and Bass community, within which he is known as Icicle.

Thomas aka. Kracht has made his stamp on ABYSS twice before with contributions to our 3rd and 6th releases, with ‘Lucky’ from ABY003 | Confluence and ‘Transmission’ from ABY006 | Inertia.

Since then Kracht has gone on the release on some significant labels including Melbourne based Green Fetish and Dutch imprint Wolfskuil alongside his brother Jeroen as Cadans.

Jeroen aka. Cadans’ background in music has also been longstanding and is rich in versatility. Emerging through renowned Drum and Bass labels such as Shogun and RAM under his pseudonym Icicle and later venturing into Techno under his relatively new moniker Cadans.

As Cadans, Jeroen has already made big steps within the community, releasing on Clone’s Basement Series, MORD, and Neighbourhood and Wolfskuil. Alongside their releases, this killer combination of brothers have performed at some of the world most revered Techno venues such as Tresor, BASIS, De Marktkantine and ​Warehouse Elementenstraat.

Over the coming months they both artists have more new productions in the pipeline including Kracht’s contribution to our next digital VA, as well as several further collective bookings spread across the globe.

We couldn’t think of a better mix of artists to combine for the first ABYSS Presents back to back, so get ready to dive in to AP026 with Kracht x Cadans.
