If you are a thirty-something, who started listening to music in the ninetees, chances are you heard a lot of music from this artist. Geronimo Latumeten had a big influence on many different artist from that decade. He worked on the last three records of legendary Amsterdammer and folk-crooner André Hazes. Geronimo’s a man with many interests and just as much talents. It’s not that strange really, because he’s been obsessed with making music from the tender age of three. Only three years later he received, as participant of the famous Dutch childrens programme Kinderen Voor Kinderen, his very first Gold Record. A flying start into the music biz. At eight, he started taking piano lessons and he would never leave the instrument’s side. With his school mate Adam Bar Pereg, he founded his first band at eleven and from there, his career really picked up. His sound was influenced by great artists such as Stevie Wonder, Prince, Afrika Bambaataa & The Soulsonic Force, Roger Troutman and many others. It paid off, because in 2010 he won the much sought-after SAE Musician Price at the prestigious Grote Prijs van Nederland award show. Soon, many great Dutch artists lined up to work with him. He did studiowork with singer Ruth Jacott, played with Willie Wartaal from hiphop group De Jeugd van Tegenwoordig and scored a top 20 hit with Lloyd de Meza, with the single Elke Stap. Today, he looks to artists like Pharrell Williams, Disclosure, Sam Smith and Robert Glasper for inspiration. What will the future bring? If it’s up to Geronimo himself, he will simply continue ot make great music and expand his project Jaxswing, which can be seen regularly at Bourbon Street.
