Ronald van Gelderen
Playing all around the world make's him one of the established DJ's of this moment. Countries like UK, Scotland, Australia, New Zealand, Japan, Switzerland, Tunisia, Germany, Poland, Israel, Canada, Spain, USA and many more are already known with this professional rock entertainer. Ronald van Gelderen is a standout DJ/ producer in every respect. Before he launched his own label Ronald produced for the High Contrast label of Be Yourself Music in Holland where he released massive singles and remixes of late such as the anthems 'Realize', 'This Way', 'Dirty Rocker', 'Embrace Me' and 'Rush'.
As a DJ, Ronald van Gelderen is stamping his mark on global club land, slamming big European festivals like Trance Energy, Mystery Land, Dance Valley, Free Festival, Pleasure Island, Gatecrasher Summer Sound System, Dancetination and Sunrise and touring as far as China, Australia, USA and Canada in recent months.
As a producer, Ronald van Gelderen is very much cutting out his own sound in the global market place. His style is electro, tech, rock and trance all rolled into one phat soundtrack.
Since '97 RvG first left his mark as a producer under the famous Kid Vicious alter ego. He released the massive club hits 'Re-Form', 'Pants Down Spanking' and 'Contagious' and went onto co-produce with Tiësto, penning 'Urban Train' and 'Suburban Train' before finally getting behind his own name, releasing the big hits ‘Proceed’ and 'Sustain' on Tsunami, 'Cold Storage' on ID and T and remixing 'Carte Blanche' on Positiva and Dogzilla 'Without You' on Nebula to huge critical acclaim in recent years. Ronald now appears to have found his groove at the High Contrast label of Be Yourself Music and where he just scored four big hits in a row; 'F!lth', 'This Way', 'Realize' and 'Dirty Rocker'.
RvG's fast filthy remix skills are praised again! The remix which he delivered for the huge club track 'Prime of Life' of Dennis Sheperd and Cold Blue, has been announced to be the biggest floor filler of this summer. Also he reproduced a 2008 version of his coproduction with Tiësto 'Urban Train', which received a huge delivery on the dance floors.
RvG's track 'Embrace Me' (released on 7th of July) was a unique production with the typical RvG deadly catchy vocal, but again with a different message. The vocals of the man himself where based on an autobiographical song text, which he wrote for his father (who passed away in 2004). M7/M8 Magazine UK already reviewed Embrace Me as 'bigger than Pamela Anderson's Breasts'.
His latest bomb 'Rush' was be released on December 23rd 2008. 'Rush' is a euphoric big room banger with the typical RvG sound, how we have ever met him in the first place.Driving beats, nasty synths and an exploding drive.
However, the beginning of 2009 made van Gelderen realize that it was time for a new step in his career. Creating a platform to express himself more in a way that would give him that liberating feeling . A platform that would give a solid ground for himself and fellow artists in the shape of his own record label.
Raw-Sessions Recordings was born. The label that carries the same name as Ronald’s successful weekly worldwide radio show, stands for the typical RvG sound. The sound which you can also hear and experience in his own DJ sets.
With the first release “Backstabberzz” already out there, Ronald proves once again that he is still part of the big league and that the success of his career and record label is still going, and growing strong.
