1982 was the year when Jaap van der Doelen shot his way out his mom dukes. A mere two years later, he was already battling Big Brother and The Illuminati. Whenever he has time to spare from those efforts he writes; about music, mostly. You can find his writings in renowned publications such as Mass Appeal, Complex, DJBooth, Passion of the Weiss and several Dutch newspapers. Jaap resides in The Netherlands where he sips rum out of Stanley Cups, unflammable.
