Few people have displayed the disciplined approach to producing that Rene Amesz has in the last ten years. Churning out a steady stream of his unique and dirty sounding tracks, the Rene Amesz sound has been destroying speakers all over the world and it looks like now, it is coming into its own at the opportune time.
Maybe Renes early career as a football player combined with his Rotterdam background had something to do with his work ethic. People from Rotterdam are generally known for a their get on with it attitude get yourself together and work hard to get out there! Young Rene was a promising prospect in the football world and considered a player headed for the A-team of Rotterdams finest, Feyenoord or Sparta. Unfortunately Rene had to give up because of a nasty injury, but that didnt stop him from making some adjustments and aiming at a new career that brought him to where he is today.
Renes first success as a producer came when he started producing records for Mid-Town under various monikers. Thats what really started his hunger for his own sound, all based on phat beats, sick grooves and a unique approach towards arrangements and sounds. He teamed up with Peter Gelderblom who, by that time, had already made a name for himself as a club and shop owner as well as a DJ/producer in his hometown of Rotterdam. Together they are responsible for tracks such as Strike Me Down on Wally Lopezs La Factoria Records, the mighty You Make Me Climb The Wall on Sander Kleinenbergs Little Mountain Recordings and remixes for Danny Tenaglia, Tom Stephan, D. Ramirez and Mark Night just to name a few.
Meanwhile, in 2004, Rene met the guys from Extrema Music in Holland who were immediately taken by his determination and approach which resulted in a couple of release that first showcased Renes new sound with. These included his first EP on Deep Focus called Courisha and the breathtaking I like Sex. On the back of these originals people were forced to sit up and take notice. Other releases that helped carve Renes signature sound were Ive been away on Lowriders Records and Im your Doctor on Nu Republic which crossed Renes sleazy style to bigger masses in 2005. From then onwards Renes career took a sharp turn upwards and forwards. Sander Kleinenbergs imprint Little Mountain successfully released the fierce Back into the Funk and lately weve seen a bunch of amazing releases come out on labels such as La Factoria, Stereo productions, Extrema, DK records and Deep Records with remixes planned for Nic Fanciulli, Jamie Anderson, Muzzaik, Lexicon Avenue and Mark Knight. New releases are scheduled for a number of labels and some will find a home at his newly established label 25 Hertz Recordings.
His DJ diary is filling up with gigs where fans appreciate the sore muscles you can only get from dancing all night; after all, thats what its all about, isnt it? Success is glowingly around the corner – bearly close enough to touch with the anticipation of what is yet to come.
