Tinlicker are the face of contemporary Dutch dance music. Their tracks impressive musical landscapes
where dancefloor sensibilities meet dynamic songwriting and forward thinking sound design.
Utrecht based duo Micha Heyboer and Jordi van Achthoven have been crafting their computerized soul
together since 2013. And even during those early days they were no rookies, having individually honed their
skills as part of world renowned drum ’n bass act Black Sun Empire (Heyboer) and as producer, songwriter
and music editor for many artists (Van Achthoven).
All this previous experience showed from day one, resulting in an impressive string of highly mature and
deeply emotive tracks. Since starting working together they’ve quickly become a household name in the
world of electronic dance music with releases on labels such as Armada, mau5trap and Anjunadeep.
Jordi and Micha’s productions like their song ‘Because You Move Me’ or dancefloor anthems ‘Lost’ and ‘Less
Than A Minute’ have racked up millions of streams. Their reworks of Lane 8, deadmau5, James Zabiela and
Reflekt’s iconic ’Need To Feel Loved’ have become indispensable tools for the world’s biggest DJs.
The best comprehensive insight into the Tinlicker sound, their first full length artist album This Is Not Our
Universe, featuring vocals by Run Rivers, Thomas Oliver and Belle Doron, was released in fall 2019. The
album features heartfelt songwriting, wistful house grooves and vibrant progressive interludes – a showcase
for two innovative producers operating in the frontline of modern dance music. Spring 2020 saw the release
of The Remixes, with tracks of the album reworked by Dosem, Joris Delacroix and Grum, shifting the focus
even more firmly towards the dancefloor.
Tinlicker performs worldwide and host their own bi-monthly Remember The Future clubnight in their
hometown Utrecht’s famed venue TivoliVredenburg.
