Born and raised in Rotterdam René began creating this musical madness inside his head at the age of 6. Slamming with Chinese food sticks on his parent's furniture and toy boxes he was terrorising the entire neighbourhood. René's very first club appearance was in a club called Blue Lagoon in his hometown back in 1996. Spinning tunes from Kadoc and The Pizzaman he hoped to keep those party schnitzers happy. Who knew his dream of being a full-time musician would come true?
2002 was the year where René first appear on the Dutch dance radar with a number 1 place in the Dutch Dance charts with his Melvin Reese project. This EP has been played by Sander Kleinenberg, Carl Cox and Danny Tenaglia to name a few.
After thinking and thinking what to do next to bring his musician skills and perform name on a higher level he found Extrema Music to be the best partner in reaching his goal. In the summer of 2003 things went very well.
After that René Amesz has been carving himself a nice niche as a DJ in Holland, and this has only been assisted by his sideline of producing house music, with his big dirty beats and heavy basslines already proving a winner as evidenced by his single alongside fellow upcoming dutch star Base on Deep Records early 2003.
Two EP's were released in December 2003 and January 2004. "Open Your Soul" has been released on Extrema's main label Extrema Records. In July 2004 there will be a release on Little Mountain Records called “Back Into The Funk”. This EP is going to be a perfect example of what to expect in René's DJ sets…..phatt ,ass-funked ,sleazy ,strong rhythmized tech house with a proggy strawberry on top of the ice cream.
As already mentioned, René's groove led tendencies have brought him recognition, and as long as he keeps finding ways to engineer and create new ways of pushing his chunky sound.
