Rudy Lime is the musical identity of the Dutch Ruud van den Muijzenberg (born in 1988). As Rudy Lime, he smoothly blends techhouse with techno and progressive into a refreshing and uplifting sound with a surprising twist during the sets.
“My DJ sets are a journey in sound.“
Rudy states: “the people deserve so much more than simply being fed the regular top-40 hits while they go out. Going out to me means stepping out of the ordinary, exploring something different than your day-to-day routine and discovering new music. Discovering tracks you wouldn’t encounter during your normal working hours, allowing you to escape the daily grind and deeply experience your valued free time.
Far too long the audience was dumbed down, now it is time for new artists to step up and give musical value in return. I prefer playing longer sets, where I can focus on the journey of the audience and of myself as artist — you’re there in that club or at that event together with them so the total experience you give is what counts. I see it as a dance, one moment the audience leads the artist and the next moment it’s the other way round.”
Back in 2008, Rudy Lime created his “Nightfall” imprint which tells the story of the setting sun in carefully crafted DJ sets. While Nightfall started as a podcast series, the Nightfall vision is the basis of Nightfall Productions and of the newly launched Nightfall event series where experience and connection between artists and visitors matter.
After going global in 2013 with his first international gigs in New York (USA) and in Tønder (Denmark), renowned techhouse label 303LOVERS from Manuel de la Mare invited Rudy to play an opening set in their “Arena” at Lakedance. Right after that he successfully launched his residency “Sultry Lounge”, which was held for two years straight in Eindhoven. In January 2014 Rudy went back to his hardstyle roots for a very special event on request of a special friend: X-Qlusive: Brennan Heart.
2015 became a year filled with traveling. In order to bring you along on his journey, Rudy created the Salutes podcast. During each trip, he carefully crafted the sets while in transit. Even though the sets may vary in sound, each Salutes episode definitely takes you on a 1 hour journey.
Fast forward, Rudy now focuses on collaborating with fellow artists and expanding his global network. His goal: unite people in dance.
