COSMIC FORCE [Ben Spaander] began his musical career at the early age of 15. He first started making mixtapes, like many early hip hop heads, with a cassette recorder and a turntable he borrowed from his mother. COSMIC FORCE then started to experiment with guitar stompboxes and effect processors which he used on existing music. Attracted by the (at that time) upcoming hiphop/electro scene of the early eighties, influenced and inspired by these fresh hiphop and electro sounds combined with the more experimental music from Pierre Henri, Oscar Sala and Kraftwerk, he developed his own sound. The first Cosmic Force release was in 1996 on Clone Records. After this, he had numerous releases under different pseudonyms, like Ototax, Proskool, Double Dutch and Dr. Switch.
