Synthesizing the landscape surrounding him, Statement! Music!’s Ruben De Ronde keeps his progressive, trance and chilled out mind set in overdrive – striking a signature musical balance.
Owning a tune in all he surpasses, the celebrated Dutchman takes his studio to the crowds from his Twitch Live streams to festivals, and A State Of Trance tours with Armin van Buuren around the globe. DJ, producer, and label owner, Ruben has all bases covered, taking his genre spectrum to the next level – always.
In the studio, he is no victim to the genre black hole, breaking the mold across the prolific trance and progressive domes while taking the chilled out tips for a ride. His global recognition has tainted dance floors of the ASOT world that he embarks on with solo efforts, while collaborating with acclaimed artists like Ferry Corsten, Estiva, Ben Gold, Elevven, Space Motion and Style and he created remixes for Aly & Fila, Cosmic Gate, and Above & Beyond.
A milestone in itself, the soundscape album ‘From Sao Paulo To Sofia’ has gone from the ASOT tour to the hands of Hardwell where it’s been featured in the I Am Hardwell and United We Are World tours while shining in the fellow Dutchman’s documentary also. His recent singles ‘Footprint’, ’Adamant’ and ‘Raid’ gathered support from the Tomorrowland radio team and DJ’s like Nicky Romero, Armin van Buuren, Ferry Corsten and others.
In 2022 he teamed up with Elevven to deliver a remix for Above & Beyond’s ‘Can’t Sleep’, scoring a top 10 overall hit in the A State of Trance top 10 of the year, and a whopping 3 weeks as #1 in the Beatport charts.
Next to the club support, Ruben de Ronde also scored success with his radio friendly music, as his track with Michael Jo reached the daytime playlist on the Dutch leading radio station ‘Slam FM’, after ‘Wanderlust’ also caught their eyes and ears in 2021.
Stepping outside the studio, Ruben de Ronde unleashes in the clubs and upon the stage, dominating bill spots across Tomorrowland, EDC Las Vegas and New Orleans, Ultra Music Festival (Miami), Mysteryland, Dreamstate, Dance valley, Nature One’s and clubs like Hi, Amnesia, Ushuaia in Ibiza.
A big part of Ruben’s roots lay within the gaming industry, and Ruben has been building a bridge between the worlds, teaming up with the esports organization in 2021 as official brand ambassador. In this role, Ruben has created numerous scores and teamed up with brands like Alienware and Coinbase, to create exclusive content and realize several activations.
With new albums on the horizon, and a firm spot in the progressive and trance scene, Ruben is ready to take on the future!
