R-Linked, born in The Hague as Steven Gietelink, is an emerging Dutch DJ who can turn his hand to everything. His artist name, R-Linked, came up during a creative session about how he could connect people over the world with his music, his personal BOOST of mind. During a night out the crowd going wild is one of his biggest drives to play his music.
Starting at the age of 16, just when boys are still boys, he saw the up and going of clubs and festivals and soon started to pursue his dream of playing on stage himself and becoming a great DJ. Inspired by DJs such as DJ Patrick he continued playing music at several venues. At a DJ School he got to know all about the concept of music, mixing techniques and entertaining the audience. R-Linked gained more experience as a DJ and got his first break in Club Hollywood Music Hall located in Rotterdam where DJ Patrick was the leading DJ.
At age 22 R-Linked became eager to leave his mark on Holland, advertising himself as a brand, setting up a website and letting his fans follow his gigs. Inspired as ever to bring his music to larger crowds he made his first mixtape, affirming his friends of his talent. He is aware that the road ahead of him is long but this only made him put more energy and vibes in his work as a DJ.
R-Linked is a great guy, a daydreamer, dreaming of performing all over the world. 2013 is going to be a HUGE year for him, so stay in touch and visit one of his venues to dance till you drop.
And oh yeah, to all of you out there, don’t be afraid to pursue your own dreams, no matter what…
