Some summer reminiscing

Me and my Roland Alpha Juno-2

Me playing keyboards has always been fully supported by my parents. They endured endless pling plong sessions on our home piano and they even helped by investing in my first real synthesizer, the Roland Alpha Juno-2. After i got that device it lasted no more than a few months before i joined a band and started playing on stage. I have very fond memories of my first gig on the Kingsday festivities (then still Queensday) in Delft. That full analog strings sound flowing out over the crowd! Really electrifying. I still have the Juno-2, but its not the same device. […]

Where We Are Free now featuring Hanny

Hanny working

Listening to Where We Are Free, the idea came to make it a duet. Kind of logical because of the “We” in the song isn’t it? Hanny came to the studio to make it happen and now it is ready for you to take a listen. What do you think?

Waiting for a miracle

Waiting for a Miracle

This is the new (EP) album title. Work is still in progress of many of the new songs. Do not expect a release before summer. Don’t tell anyone, but it will be more up tempo this time around. No more sulking in the attic, if you catch my drift. You’ve Got Me will be on it of course. If did not listen already here are the links:

What’s with the ‘concept’?


When is a song really finished? If only I would know… All the B2FAB songs on SoundCloud are in a way works in progress, now and then I go back to a song to tweak it or fix a small glitch in the mix. Now and then for me a song is really missing some essential, but still I feel the need to let people hear the finished part of the song. In that case it will get a title marked as concept. If you hear a concept song and you think you can “make it work” in some way, […]

The singing stars of B2FAB

This is dedicated to all the singers that helped me create the songs that you can listen to on Soundcloud, YouTube and Vimeo. One by one with a small story to introduce these voices that help me to tell a story. Right from the start I knew that my music needed to tell a story and that I wanted vocals to express this. That is where my musical capabilities are limited and I needed some help. I started making music on the piano. Then developed as a keyboard player, playing in various band. Always, when recording in the studio, it […]

I was looking for a way to make a song about the loss of my little 8 year old cousin. She died from cancer and fought and lost a hard battle. Should it have been a children’s song or a ballad? It is a more up tempo song but with a touch of melancholy. Symbolizing the life that goes on for everyone left behind and the frozen memories that remain. I hope you enjoy the song, but at the same time get touched by the same emotions I felt when writing it. This song is open for remixing or for […]

A day in the studio


How to write a song? How long does it take to write a song? For me these questions are impossible to answer. A song for me starts with an idea, funny, sad, or anything in between. From there it can take anything from 60 minutes to several months. A solid start is always the story I want to tell and toying around with my old faithful Korg Triton workstation, that has traveled thousands of miles, from gig to gig. Now it’s resting peacefully in the center of the studio awaiting new inspiration. Ableton Live immediately records all initial ideas. Any […]

Lets get started

B2FAB is a solo project of The Wim, straight from a small studio in the attic. From electropop to a lonely piano and some violins. Music is a way to express yourself and this music conveys very personal thoughts. Expect guest appearances of various musicians. The Wim was a songwriter and keyboard player in Iceparty and various projects after that. After the final gig of Iceparty, The Wim decided to take all ideas and stray studio recordings one step up to turn them into complete tracks. Every track has a personal story attached. You can find the most actual news […]
