Biography

The Generator is Robert Smit, also known as Generator.

Born on 24th of July 1973, he started buying records at an early age when he met Ferry Corsten and found out that they shared the same interest: House Music. Both started mixing tapes for friends. Then they met Rene and John who had their own small music studio. The four joined forces which resulted in Robert’s first record production entitled “Spirit of Adventure” for Hithouse Records at the age of 18.

His 2nd release “Tellurians - The Navigator” was a huge underground hit in Germany in 1992.From then on Ferry and Robert went their own way with productions for Blue Records under the name of “Alternative” and “Bladeracer”.Robert’s first solo project appeared in 1995 under the name Kcrushed One.He produced “Release Yourself” and “Fet=m” for the Dutch label Native Dance Records and SciFi Records. His first commercial success was when Robert produced together with Ferry “Roef - Outthere” for Byte Records. From 1998 Robert and Ferry (together with the Dutch record-company Purple Eye Entertainment) joined forces in Tsunami, a label for which they both produce. For this label Robert is responsible for “Elektrika”, “The Generator” and “2HD”. Due to the success of the label abroad they started Polar State in the beginning of 1999 as Tsunami’s sub-label. Robert produced the first and second release on this label. The first was called “Generator - Where Are You Now?” and has been licensed to various countries around the world. The second single is called “Perfect Pervert” by “Caveman”.
