Rene has been djing now for 5yrs and his first break came from Toni Tambourine when he was asked to warm up for the Christmas party for City Loud at Turnmills. From there he went on to play for Heaven Night Club in London and Mass in Brixton as well as many other smaller venues, promotions and private parties and raves around the country.
Along the way he was invited to play for iDJ Magazine showcasing up and coming talent in 2000 after entering the Technics DJ Competition at the The Live Music Event at the NEC and was then invited back the following year for a second term.
In June 2002 Rene was invited by a local radio station, DiverseFM in Luton to play two half hour House sets on their drive time show.
Rene’s success hasn’t faulted over recent years and has had the pleasure of warming up for Matt Hardwick at Heaven and has had the pleasure of playing along side JFK at the same venue and has worked with Tim Sheridan.
Rene gained extensive experience in the music and djing industry by having run his own club promotion for two years, he says “Running this type of business involves being disciplined and organized. It drives you on towards new challenges and ensures that you stay on top of the game. I’m really going to miss it.”
Due to personal reasons, namely the arrival of his little girl, his promotion has been put on hold but his passion knows no bounds.
Rene has become renowned for grabbing every opportunity with both hands and even with his experience under his belt he never feels he’s good enough and strives for perfection. That paid off this summer when he entered a DJ competition in Doncaster to win a residency with Liam Sulivan aka Max Linen, producer of The Soulshaker… AND WON!!! “I just can’t believe it” he says, “The competition was getting tough within the funky house djs and I was getting worried. But being such a huge fan of Liam and D.Ramirez I took a chance and dropped a Deep Progressive set and it paid off. I’m over the moon; it’s the big break I’ve been looking for years.” Rene starts his new residency this month warming up for Peace Division at The Boiler Rooms in Doncaster.
DJing aside Rene has been eager to get his own tunes out of his head onto vinyl. He had just passed his HD in Dance Music Production and is working hard to reach the standard required for the industry. But having heard some of his first attempts, I’m sure it won’t take him long. We’d better watch out.
Rene is making his mark and he’s just as passionate now as he’s ever been.
