Biography

Dr. Rude – Always ready to operate On the 16th of November 1982, it was time for one of the biggest multi-talented DJ’s to check out what it would be like to be on planet Earth. Not having the knowledge that he was about to become one of the true leaders of his generation in harder styles. Dutch Rudi Feenstra’s interest got caught by hiphop: one of his friends was playing the sounds and inspired Rudi to get an own set of two turntables and a mixer. Scratching, cutting and juggling around, Rudi found out that hiphop wasn’t his cup of tea. Instead of heavy basses, downtempo beats and rappers, he learned that he got more enthusiastic about kicks, basslines and filthy synthesizers. He started getting skills in mixing hardstyle, but he was also attracted to houseclassics and early rave. He used the techniques he gathered from his hiphop-background to make his sets more interesting for the audience.

After gaining some experience, he entered the contest for the Defqon.1 2004 talent room. He won the talent nights and as a result of his performance, he was allowed to play at the festival. Since that very day, the doctor got a crazy schedule. He got booked for the biggest events around: Audio Attack, Mindcontroller and the legendary event History Of Hardcore, where he featured next to the infamous Dream Team. But this was all just another step towards his future.
