GOSTO takes you to places that you seem to recognize, but not yet have been before.
Roel GOSTO Vermeer is a singer, multi-instrumentalist, songwriter and producer. Inspired by traveling, chaos and love as well as artists such as Flying Lotus, James Blake, Thom Yorke and Jeff Buckley, GOSTO balances between fragile melodies and electronic extravaganza. In his song writing, he thrives to let you experience the thin line between simplicity and complexity. GOSTO melt the worlds of acoustic and electronic music together into one dubby trip-hop sound; raw, dark but still colorful.
