Robert Hoogduin, alias Roberto DaVinci (Holland), born 1969, started his DJ career in 1987. While house music was born in 1988, DaVinci already had his first gig. He started his public career in one of Haarlem's most famous underground clubs called "Dwiezels". At the same time, he was also experimenting with "cutting and pasting" mixes using taperecorders. When his first mix was created at home, Radio 3FM, Holland's number one radio station, showed interest in his skills and aired his first reel mix.
During the mid 90's, DaVinci increased his efforts to develop his skills and love for being a DJ. Although doing it part time, these efforts paid off as DaVinci won local DJ championships and earned a spot in the finals of the Dutch Live DJ Mix Championships.
Beside known parties in Holland, he performed at large evets as A Day at the Park, Wooferland, Libertation Pop, Loveland Festival, Bungalup, Vrij Festival, Pathfinder Festival, Awakenings, Dutch Kingsday, and so on.
Although his former experience would suggest that he is a real eclectic DJ, music does change and evolves, and nowadays he is well versed into the Deep- and TechHouse, with his own classic twist. With DJ Manolo, he also plays at various events, such as Private events, Business Events, Festivals, etc. under the name "FunkSoulBrothers".
Nowadays Roberto DaVinci has his own radioshow called BLEND on Friday's from 23:00 - 0:00 CET. Roberto 'Blends' the best in Deep-, tech- and classic housemusic.
