Teun de Kruif, better known as Tantu, was born september '93 in Utrecht, The Netherlands.
While being a Youngster, his life was all about Skateboarding and school. In these years his musical preference for Hip-Hop grew bigger and bigger. When he suddenly got an extremely bad knee injury at the age of 14, he had to find an other way to enjoy himself, and started showing interest in the art of creating instrumental music. Tantu was born.
After 2 years of messing around, Tantu started putting his beats online and quickly found out people
were actually enjoying his music. Not only lots of rappers were asking him for beats, but also many people
enjoyed listening to Tantu's instrumentals.
While more and more people were starting to appreciate his music, Tantu went on and tried to give his own feel to the genre of Hip-Hop.
In 2011 Tantu released his first official free beattape, called ''On My Way'', which can be downloaded for free
under the Beattapes section.
Together with his beattape, Tantu also launched his official website and beatshop, which can be found under the ''Beats'' section.
At the moment Tantu is more active than ever. While still being very active on Youtube, Tantu is also working together with a lot of respected and well known national and international artists. Tantu is also currently working on his debut album, called ''Language Of Beats'', which will be released in the fall of 2013. Next to some amazing rap names, Language Of Beats will mostly contain very soulfull and relaxing beats which Tantu made while traveling through moments of life and places on earth.
Tantu is here to show you all the language of beats, so check me out and enjoy my music!
