Maurice Pical was born 14-12-1989 in The Netherlands, Zaandam. From a very young age, he had a very good sense of rhythm. His mother had the cd track The Trammps - Zing Went The Strings playing in the car during a road trip and suddenly, Maurice started tapping with his hand on his legs. His parents looked up and reacting like wow, repeat the song again and lets have a look and yes, he was tapping the same rhythm on his legs.
When he was at the age of 14, he was starting to play on the drums. His parents were playing in a band and sometimes, Maurice was asked to play with them and it did go well. My parents thaught from that moment that he is going to be a good drummer.
Middle 2003, Maurice was starting to DJ with classical Trance tracks and Dance tracks. His favourite artists are Tiesto and Armin Van Buuren. He was using Virtual DJ for a while.
Starting 2008, he started to produce his first tracks with the producing software FL Studio 8. Not so long after, he was working with FL Studio 9 and his first successful production was his track Aletsch. The track is an uplifting Trance style, one of his most favourite genre.
With that track, he also participated with a music competition, called The Radio538 Demo Duel, a national contest. He went through the qualifying rounds and the semi-finals, but didn't win the finals. But the most important thing he had in his mind is that he gained experience and fun on the stage.
Around middle 2009, he discovered the genre Uplifting Trance and from that moment, he was definetly determined to specialize in that subgenre. The cause was that he bought the DVD 'Tiësto's Elements Of Life World Tour 2008' and heard the track 'Cold Blue & Del Mar - 11 Days (Sebastian Brandt Remix)' and so Maurice felt in love with Uplifting and Melodic Trance.
End 2009, spinning for a while with Virtual DJ, he bought a MIDI/USB DJ Controller and started to work with the new Traktor 3 LE digital dj software. Slowly switching over, mixing with a good solid Numark Stealth Control DJ Controller with a lot of Trance classics and Uplifters, also with some variations of Progressive Trance and House, but his main genre stays with the regulair Trance music. Middle 2010, he upgraded his digital software to Traktor Pro.
Late 2010, he started to switch slowly from FL Studio to Cubase and he made some reworks of his own tracks, remastering etc. Now he is focusing on Uplifting and Epic Trance productions with addictive African and Cubanic percussion intro's, breaks and sometimes funky and pop grooves.
Beginning 2011, he further upgraded his digital dj system to Traktor Scratch Pro, planning to use real DJ hardware (2 CD players and 1 Mixer), integrating with the software by using Timecode Control CD's from one of the world leading company in Digital DJ Technology: Native Instruments.
