Biography[edit]

Dr. Peacock was born in Alkmaar, Netherlands on 31 July in 1988. In 2005, he found some frenchcore records from The Sickest Squad and DJ Radium, which inspired him to become a frenchcore artist. In 2010, he began his career as a music producer. He quickly gained the attention of BKJN, a Dutch event production company, which asked him to perform at one of their events.[2] The success of his performance event led to BKJN co-hosting an event with him called "Vive la Frenchcore" in 2013. That same year, Dr. Peacock collaborated with Angerfist to produce a track for his album The Deadfaced Dimension.[citation needed]

Frenchcore's popularity grew quickly in The Netherlands, with Dr. Peacock performing at Defqon.1 in 2014. Dr. Peacock founded his label Peacock Records, and started to focus on developing new talent and growing the frenchcore scene. The upbeat and melodic releases on Peacock Records were different from older frenchcore. During this period, Dr. Peacock worked heavily with Sefa, producing collabs such as "This Life Is Lost" and "Trip To Turkey".

In 2016, Dr. Peacock toured through the United States as part of the Trauma Harder Styles Tour, and performed in Australia.[2] Following these tours, he announced that he could only continue touring by car or train, as he had developed a health condition relating to air travel.[3]
