His introduction to music was through piano lessons at just three years old, but it wasn’t long before Reinier started to compose his own classical music pieces for solo piano performances. It was only after attending his first illegal raves while studying at university that the artist we know today began exploring the vibrant world of electronic music production.After completing two master’s degrees in 2015, Reinier went all in on his ever-growing passion of producing and performing the new age of techno music. Soon after, his tracks were supported by some of the most respected trendsetters in the scene, shortly followed by head turning singles on Oliver Koletzki’s Stil vor Talent, Carl Cox’s Intec and Richie Hawtin’s Minus, as well astwo official remixes for electronic music legend Moby. Today, Reinier Zonneveld’s productions and live-sets act as a fusion of his classical training and personal rave experiences, making it no surprise that his evocative sound contains such incredible breadth, ranging from deep and melodic tracks to heart pounding acid techno at blistering speeds.
Reinier also runs the highly acclaimed Filth On Acid label, founded in early 2017. Within just 5 years, the techno imprint grew to be one of the best-selling and most supported labels in the scene, often taking the top spot as Beatport’s leading techno label. Giving Reinier full creative control, the imprint allows the Dutch talent to explore and test the confines of techno, an approach exemplified by his acclaimed album ‘Church of Club Music’ as well as his turbulent flips of trance classics like “Resurrection” and Ferry Corsten’s immortal single, “Punk.” The label has also featured a who’s who of acclaimed talent, including Carl Cox, Eli Brown, Oliver Heldens' HI-LO project, and Joyhauser to name a few.From headlining venues that are typically reserved for international pop acts like Adele, U2, Billie Eilish, Kensington and One Direction, for example selling out Amsterdam's 13,000 person Ziggo Dome during ADE 2021, to taking the reigns on his own label, Reinier Zonneveld has quickly grown from underground talent to most industry tastemaker.
