BIOGRAPHY

HOW IT ALL BEGAN

DJ SUMMERBIRD

Born in Oosterhout, the Netherlands (May 20, 1982) DJ Summerbird (Robert Crutzen) grown up surrounded by music. He always knew that he wanted to entertain people. At the age of 14, he started playing saxophone and two years later, in 1998 he made his first DJ moves by playing 12” vinyl, which he’d bought at his favourite recordshop in Eindhoven, The Netherlands.
He started by only playing house music, but later expanded into other genres like R&B, hip hop, and commercial EDM. Staying true to his roots, house music is still his preferred music genre. Around 2003-2004, his DJ-ing transitioned from 12” vinyl to digital music and this moment also was his DJ breakthrough, where he started playing at many (student) parties in all big cities of the Netherlands, such as Amsterdam, The Hague, Delft (where he studied Aviation Technology), Utrecht and Leiden.
In 2018 he bought the Pioneer DDJ-1000 controller and delivers a monthly mixtape on Soundcloud in different music flavours.
DJ Robert’s mission is to enjoy life to the fullest by sharing his best sounds with the world and dancing to other DJs as much as possibl
