‘Drugs From Amsterdam’ producer and Dutch native Mau P has made a major impact on the house music scene in a remarkably short space of time. Raised in a household full of talented musicians, taking on multiple instruments from a very young age, he found an unconditional love for dance music at the age of 14. He now effortlessly channels his musical skillset, raw talent and boundless creativity into both his productions and DJ sets.
ACCOMPLISHMENTS & MUSICAL RESUME
26 year old Maurits Westveen, or Mau P as we know him, set an incredibly high bar with his thumping debut single, which rocketed from the underground to become a huge global hit with a staggering 17 million plays racked up in just over a month from its initial release. Combining a throbbing tech house vibe with an infectious vocal hook and even sounds sampled from the Amsterdam Metro in the breakdown, the track cracked the Shazam Top 200 in multiple countries, hitting #5 on the Dutch Shazam Chart and #4 on the Spotify Global Viral Chart.
It also enjoyed major radio success across the world. Featuring on many national stations like the UK’s BBC Radio 1, and additions to some of the biggest streaming playlists in the world including Spotify’s Mint, Beast Mode and Housewerk. With over 30 million plays on TikTok in addition to this in its first month, it quickly became an inescapable smash. Signed to Lee Foss’ influential Repopulate Mars imprint and licensed to Universal Music—the world’s biggest record label—it has found support from heavyweight DJs ranging from Tiësto to John Summit, David Guetta, DJ Snake, Diplo, Dom Dolla and Wade.
“You really need to be mentally strong and stable for this” – said Mau P of being sent into the stratosphere of stardom.
The success of the track has led to him playing alongside Oliver Heldens at his ADE show, and at a Repopulate Mars show during the festival. As one of the freshest faces in the underground scene, he will be demonstrating his versatile skills and musical interests, with plenty more anthems waiting in the wings to see the light of day. The next generation of electronic music stars starts here.
