What do Amsterdam, killer music, amazing shows and two talented producers have in common? That’s right, Ruttenbergs. When Lodewyck Berghuys and Steven Rutten joined their dj and production forces in 2012, Ruttenbergs was born. The two talented men just recently celebrated their one year anniversary as Ruttenbergs, but already released several tracks under respectable labels. Among them TraumSchallplatten and Parquet Recordings. Ruttenbergs followed in the footsteps of their widely famous colleagues and gave away amazing show in Paradiso, theMelkweg, WesterUnie, Club Air, Studio 80, Amsterdam Dance Event and at Itaca, Ibiza alongside Tapesh.
Besides being very passionate about building the Ruttenbergs brand, they also have their personal projects to extend and increase their experience in the music business.
Lodewyck is the only one of the two Ruttenbergs accomplices who spins the decks. With Steven preferring to stay out of the spotlight and in the studio, Lodewyck performs under Ruttenbergs during several big festivals and shows monthly. Additionally, Lodewyck is the driving force behind Op de Valrave Festival. This electronic music festival celebrated its one year anniversary in November and sold out its anniversary edition with over 2000 visitors. You can also find Colored Records on his business card, this is the international production label he and Steven started in 2010.
Steven loves the studio and lives for producing and reinventing great tracks. With Lodewyck being in front, he can focus on his passion. Besides Ruttenbergs, Steven produces tracks and albums for several great names and won contest all over the Netherlands. Just recently he got hand picked as the second place winner by Tiësto during his remix contest. Besides all that, he owns Colored Recordings together with Lodewyck under which they produce their incredible music.
"Collects a lot of energy right from the beginning, creates a stunning crossover into the field of pop music in its breakdown which we had not heard so far.” (Traum about Ruttenbergs – That Little Paradise)
“Already hammered this track during the last month at my dj gigs. Now ‘Ruttenbergs – Heating’ from the current ‘Parquet Goodies 2013’ compilation is storming the Beatport charts. If you still missed it, grab it now!” (Parquet's owner Solee)
