About me

Hi there music lover,

My name  is Rutger Steenbergen, aka De Facto. I’m a dutch melodic techno producer and I’ve been making electronic music for 21 years now. In the past with hardware and nowadays completely with VST’s.

I’ve always loved electronic music and I started my musical career with a Roland MC-303 and Yamaha CS1x.

When I was 18 I sent a demo to a publisher. They thought it sounded crappy, but were enthusiastic about my melodies. That’s why they had a song remixed and released it under my name (Bombario). The track is still on YouTube.

Way too hard on myself

After the first success I wanted more. And that’s where it went wrong. I was way too hard on myself and didn’t think anything was good enough. As a result I didn’t send demos ever since. Till I decided it was enough.  

“I was way too hard on myself and didn’t send demos for 15 years.

I gave it a final try, pushed myself to the limit  and sent an ultimate demo to a French techno label. They were immediately enthusiastic and since then I’m on fire. I produce 1 or 2 tracks each month, and they are all released. I made my dream come true!
