In 1998, after being involved in the Dutch dance scene for more then 10 years, he started buying and experimenting with drum machines, synthesizers, and other equipment, to compose his own music.
In 2000, this resulted in his first performances as “live act”, playing his own music in front of live audiences in clubs, on outdoor festivals, and on underground parties.
This has also resulted in a collaboration project with another artist, =XTRECIST= (from 2002 until 2005).
They also co-hosted the weekly KraakPiep radio show on AirPeace FM, which at the time was the only “non-compromise” radio show for electronic music.
Meanwhile, while always shifting the boundaries, and forever questioning the norm (both musically and technologically),
Robin’s own music has become increasingly minimal and mature, and has resulted in a whole series of live performances, which have been well received.
Today, while combining the analogue gear of yesteryear with the digital tools of today, and after having played around the world for a decade, Robin is known for his own distinctive style of music, which fits somewhere between the funky and deep Detroit techno from the likes of Jeff Mills and Laurent Garnier, and the minimalistic dub from Berlin sound scientists Basic Channel.
Robin is also one of the residents on the notorious Vuig* parties and afterparties.
