He started his DJ career about 17 years ago playing in famous Belgian clubs such as: Globe, Barocci, Cherrymoon, Extreme, Illusion, Bel-Air, Carat, Maxx, and a lot of others… Once a month (on a friday) he's playing in Fuse (B) (Mad Club). As so many DJ's he also started an artist career. Since then he is signed to Bonzai Records. His first single Animals became a big club hit in Belgium.

At this stage people started watching artists like Yves Deruyter for playing on big raves (clubs) such as May Day, Love Parade, Energy, Nature One, Trance Energy, Mysteryland, Qontact, Frequence, Inside Out, Passion, Slinky, Frisky, Gatecrasher, I love Techno, Axion Beach Rock, and so many more… With his second single he made a big jump into the German market. Rave City became a big succes with more than 50.000 sold units. The follow up Calling Earth was again a succes with 70.000 sold singles. All this was the start of a succesfull story.

A Story About House was to be the next Cherrymoon Trax single, but due to problems with the club it was changed into a new Yves Deruyter single. Unfortunately this single didn't really break anything. Nevertheless his follow up single "The Rebel" was immediatly signed for the world. "The Rebel" was a top tune and the real international breakthrough for Yves Deruyter. This single was also the announcement for this first album "D-Album" containing all the singles from past and future.

During this period he started also the musical outlet of the Cherrymoon where he was playing. So far he made 4 Cherrymoon Trax singles of which the last single "In My Electric House" was again succesfull in Germany. All this in combination with the first 3D black and white video made by Frank Dewulf who became an important artist with his B-Sides releases.

Yves Deruyter's vision of his future in music is and will always be the same:making music for the people. For him it is important that the people have fun while they're listening/dancing to his music. In the past he used to work with Frederico Santini, but now his counterpart is Dirk "M.I.K.E." Dierickx (Push, The Blackmaster, M.I.KE., Moon Project, …) who is currently one of the most important producers from Bonzai Records.

This single Rythmic Bass was taken of the album "2001" as well as "Back to Earth".
