Signum is a combination of two talented producers in the European music industry They are Pascal Minnaard (age 29) and Ronald Hagen (also age 29) Both live in Zoetermeer a small town near his home base in The Hague Netherlands.
Pascal & Ron first met each other in high school, it was the place where they found that they had the same interest in making music and began do some work together Although they lost contact later, they both continued to make music
During this time, Pascal got a record contract at the Dutch label / agency BPM Dance He made his first track it under his name on the label 4-Play (Inside a Rainbow) for its second release ("the flow of knowledge" "other side" "Adapter"), he began working under the name of Signum under the label "Jinx" from former company BPM Dance.
At this time Pascal met up with Ron Ron also signed again with BPM Dance and they started producing together again without knowing that this will prove a big hit when they released their first song together in 1997 under the JINX label, called "What do you have for me," the disc became a big club And the anthem with it`s reissue in 2001 (about TidyTrax) also beat No. 36 position in the UK Top40! "What do you have 4 me" turned out to be what we now call a true "Trance Classic"
