Two classmates at the Dutch music school ‘Herman Brood Academie”, who came together through their matching passion & vision of modern dance music. Bauke Top and Youp van der Steeg are pursuing a progressive house sound that touches both the heart and the body itself, by means of melody and groove.
While Navarra hasn’t been around for a very long time, both Youp and Bauke have separately been making moves in the dance scene for over 4 years. Youp, also known as Frenky Toros, started out as a disc jockey, entertaining people in the region of Amsterdam and later throughout the Netherlands. Shortly after starting as a DJ, he found out that making his own music could lift his sets to a next level. The experience Youp gained as a DJ gave him a strong feeling for what works in a club and what doesn’t. This lead to Youp developing a club-focussed progressive house sound, designed to get people moving on the dance floor.
