ROBIN FITTER A.K.A. FITALIC
Born and raised in The Hague at the west coast of the Netherlands, Robin got his first interest in music at the age of 12 when he started to learn electronic instruments.
After a few years, at the age of 18 he became interested in house music when he heard it being played at the local radio station in The Hague.
While out clubbing late one night in The Hague, Robin heard a talented DJ by the name of DJ Remy. Fuelling his interest in this very special sound, soon he started buying vinyl and learns the mixing techniques. In a short time he had gigs at some local school parties.
Although getting an excellent feel for the music, Robin still felt empty. After watched a live performance of the duo Pako and Frederik, Robin decided he want to perform his own music on stage too. Around 1998 he decided that he would take a different approach to things, bought his first set of production equipment, and began to produce his own music.
Two years later he had his debut release as Fitalic (maybe you’ll remember it: “Daytripper / Unbalanced”). The Hague could now add another name to its list of producers along with the likes of international greats such as, Sander Kleinenberg, DJ Remy, Pako & Frederik, and Roland Klinkenberg.
Influenced by these same great artists (and others) Robin has now had eighteen 12” releases, including releases on Bedrock (UK) and Vapour (AU). His tracks have been played by the likes of John Digweed, Paul van Dijk, Kasey Taylor, Chris Fortier, DJ Remy, Sander Kleinenberg and Danny Howells. Just to name a few.
In the summer of 2002 Robin Fitter began to perform as a DJ and live-performance, with his close friend Andres Bink. Following the major name and success of his tracks, Fitalic could be seen performing across the globe, along side of the best in the biz. Adding to an already large amount of events and experience. Fitalic played with DJ’s like Thomas Penton, Seb Fontaine, Kasey Taylor, Infusion (live) DJ Remy, Pako & Frederik (live) and Tegma to name a few, in countries like Japan, China, Indonesia, Turkey, Greece, Canada, Mexico, Georgia, Denmark, Germany, Switzerland, Netherlands and many more.
After his first artist album “Atomic Atmosphere“ in 2006 for Tribal Vision Records, Fitalic just released in the summer of 2009 an already successfull second album “Shanghai Road” on Tribal Vision Records aswell. His third album " The Journey " will be out in january 2012 on Tribal Vision Records aswell.
Fitalic has easily become a much recognized and respected name in the biz.
