"I call it 'simple music for complex emotions'. The world is a hectic place right now and I feel a deep urge to reconnect on a basic human level with people in general. Music as our universal language has the power to unite." Dutch composer and musician Joep Beving is a towering figure in the streaming world – and in real life too, thanks to his two-metre frame (nearly 6'10), wild hair and flowing beard. Joep’s delicate melodies instantly struck a chord with listeners when tracks from the album first appeared on streaming music playlists alongside the likes of Max Richter, Ólafur Arnalds and Nils Frahm. His first DG album 'Prehension' displays introspective, melancholy, filmic and uplifting characteristics – presented in a simple, warm acoustic atmosphere which will help soothe the soul.

Introducing a brand new artist to the DG label: contemporary Dutch composer/pianist Joep Beving.

Already a leading new-generation streamed artist, with a growing digital footprint.

His first self-released album “Solipsism” has polled over 51 million streams on Spotify alone since its release last year! The two lead tracks are now at over 16 and 18 million streams each!

Described online as a “friendly giant”, Joep creates genuinely relaxing and contemplative neo-classical music with a broad and immediate appeal.

Music which displays introspective, melancholic, filmic and uplifting characteristics – presented in a simple, warm acoustic atmosphere.
