Den Bosch, Netherlands
“Good beats, a heavy bass, ever-changing melodies, awesome vocals and a live drumshow!”
Robin van Dongen is born in Den Bosch, the Netherlands in 1988. His love for music gets a lot of support from the family. It doesn’t matter whether it’s the sound of guitar strings or drumsticks. Thenceforth, he focusses on: the first mix tapes are made with a secondhand mixer, a disc-man and a stereo system. The local youth centre makes way for cafes, huge parties, and festivals. Not as a visitor but as an artist. In 2013 Dr. Robinson sees the light of life when Robin starts his own business.
Inspiration comes in many forms: performances of other artists, BBC Radio 1, new releases or remixes from online communities. When Robin hears a song he immediately knows how it should be sampled and combined, in which venues it deserves to be played and how to make an amazing remix. In the old days he prefered Hardcore records, today Drum & Bass has a special place on his SD-card.
