Discover: Mr. Probz

Standard

I was listening to Spotify a couple weeks ago when I came across a suggested track…

Mr-probz-1398673034

…by an artist named Mr. Probz

The song was called “Waves” and I was really blown away! It has a mellow vibe and it’s catchy as ever! It turns out that “Waves” has put Mr. Probz on the map with international recognition! The song is best recognized for the remix version by Robin Schulz, but honestly…either version is great!

Take a listen to the well-known remix of “Waves” right here:

Mr. Probz is the stage name of 30 year old Dennis Princewell Stehr from the Netherlands. He started off his career in an unconventional way…writing lyrics about his every day experiences as graffiti!

On August 6, 2010…Mr. Probz was shot down in Amsterdam and 6 months after the unfortunate incident…he had a hit song on the Dutch charts called “Meisje luister” as a collaboration with Kleine Viezerik.

Mr. Probz has recorded with amazing artists and producers from the likes of: Scott Storch, Raekwon, Royce da 5’9″ and Giorgio Tuinfort.

On September 16, 2013, Mr. Probz released his debut album “The Treatment” on SoundCloud for free download! Although the album doesn’t feature his hit single “Waves”.

Life hasn’t been easy for Mr. Probz and in a recent interview with Idolator he said: “Last year my house burned down. I lost everything. I had a box of papers, and a bag of clothes and my laptop, which contained the album that I was working on. Everything was destroyed, like literally everything. Everything around the laptop was melted: my clothes; my guitar; everything was gone. Two days later, I’m on a TV show, playing the song, and I walked outside, and it went number #1, and that’s when everything changed.”

That just gave me chills! I guess it’s true that breakthroughs happen when we least expect them to! I feel so grateful that he’s lived through all of his hardships in order to continue creating music for the world to enjoy!

Mr. Probz is currently working on his sophomore album and I can’t wait to hear it!
