Ruben de Ronde
Synthesizing the landscape surrounding him, Statement! Music!’s Ruben De Ronde keeps his progressive, trance and chilled out mind set in overdrive- striking a signature musical balance. Owning a tune in all he surpasses, the celebrated Dutchman takes his studio to the crowds from his Armada residency to festivals, and A State Of Trance tours with Armin Van Buuren around the globe. DJ, producer and label owner, Ruben has all bases covered, taking his genre spectrum to the next level- always.
In the studio, he is no victim to the genre black hole, breaking the mold across the prolific trance and progressive domes while taking the chilled out tips for a ride. His global recognition has tainted dance floors of the ASOT world that he embarks on with solo efforts, while collaborating with acclaimed artists like Tenishia and Ukrainian starlet Aelyn. Releasing with Danny Chen saw ‘Bright’, the collaboration with Rodg celebrated ‘Remain Different’ and ‘For Granted’ ignited 2013. Following with remixes for Alex M.O.R.P.H and Above & Beyond, his studio barely rests. A milestone in itself, the soundscape album ‘From Sao Paulo To Sofia’ has gone from the ASOT600 tour to the hands of Hardwell where it’s been featured in the I Am Hardwell tour while shining in the fellow Dutchman’s documentary also. In tune, Ruben’s track ‘Stoer’ walked into the hands of Joris Voorn’s Rejected Records where it saw the tech driven artist embrace its entrance.
Stepping outside the studio and Ruben De Ronde unleashes in the clubs and upon the stage, dominating bill spots across Dance valley, Nature One’s main stage, Kazantip, A State of Trance live events at Moscow, Sao Paolo, Yekateringburg, Buenos Aires and gracing half a million people welcoming in Hanoi’s new year. As DJ Mag’s trance reviewer in Holland and crowned boss of ‘Sound of Holland’ weekly radio sessions on Afterhours FM and Sirius XM, Ruben hits a nerve within the electronic music industry, also taking a firm stand on ‘Tomorrowland Radio’ in the summer of 2013.
With an upcoming remix edition of ‘From Sao Paolo To Sofia’ and a string of heart pounding dance floor products, Ruben De Ronde isn’t in Holland for long before he embarks on his next push through electronic music’s cosmos.
