Da Shredder

devils_empire@hotmail.com

Da Shredder was born at September 14th 1978 in a small town called Spankeren. It's a small town where aprox. 1100 people live in the east of The Netherlands near Dieren between the cities Arnhem en Zutphen. After 24 and a half year Da Shredder moved to Brummen, a town in not far from away from where he was born. Nowadays he lives near Hydra in the same village Velp. He finished the MTS (Middle Technical School), went to the HTS (Higher Technical School) but stopped with it after about one year. Now he is working as a CAD-Draftsman (drawing houses with the computer) at a technical office in Apeldoorn. His hobbies are: Listening to music (It's my life!), driving his car (at this moment itís a leasecar), he followed karatelessons for about 3 years and he is a huge racing fan! He always watching the A1 Grand Prix of Nations on tv and when the whole circus is in Zandvoort (The Netherlands) he is there on the track to watch the race. He even was on tv during the Dutch anthem on the A1-race of 2007 at Zandvoort, singing loud and proud with it.

The first hardcoresong he ever heard is still his favorite song ever: Jones & Stephenson - The First Rebirth. "I'm in love with that song. Everytime I hear it, it will clear up my day, no matter how bad it was or will be!". That's why the Bonzai CD part 7 is his favorite CD. He bought a lot of CD's like Thunderdome, Mysteryland and Hellsound, but also some Happy Hardcore/Rave. The styles he likes most are Terror en the "Classic" oldstyle (with melodies of classicical music and happy melodies). But he is also a big (Hard)Trance-fan and don't look strange if you ever see him dancing on rock- or hardrockmusic. He's kind of an "All-styler"! It doesn't matter, as long as the bass kicks loud and the partyfeeling is there! The DJ's/Acts he likes most are Neophyte, RTC, 3SA (too bad he doesnít live anymore), Promo, The Marshall Masters (Marc Arcardipane), Buzz Fuzz and most of all, the lady of Terror: Dana. The song "Hardcore will never die" from The Reactor & Raoul vs Impulse Factory is a song with a memory. This was the song he always listend together with on of his friends Naud (Rochitius) who sadly died at the 13th of december 2004 at the age of 21. May he rest in piece now.

"The 11th of April 1998 will be a day to remember..". That's how the Marshall Masters start with "Return to zero (The Mysteryland Anthem)". This was also a day to remember for Da Shredder: it was the first Hardcoreparty he went to! Ever since that time he went to several parties. Digital Overdose, Thunderdome, Mysteryland, Hardcore Resurrection are several of the big names of parties he went to. And he made a lot of friends there, no matter if he was alone. At Mysteryland '99 , the indoor edition, he met Shck.wav. And at Mysteryland 2000, the outdoor edition, he met Hydra. With them he went to alot more parties and they still do now. The party goes on!
