Let us introduce DJ, Producer and Frameworx Music label honcho, Pieter Steijger a.k.a. STEYGER. Born on Valentine’s Day, in the year house music took its first steps towards Europe, 1989.
As a young kid, Pieter started making music more traditionally as a drummer. His feeling for grooves and rhythm has always been the red line in his music career. After learning and playing drums for almost 8 years as a child, he got in touch with some well-known DJ’s from the famous Dutch dance scene. These guys inspired Pieter to implement his musical skills in a new way of making music on a computer.
At the age of 13, this man had his first osculation with the turntables, since then he developed himself and has been constantly working on innovating electronic music.
From this starting point as a dance music artist, his music studio started growing from a simple bedroom music studio into a professional production studio. Also, his knowledge of music production got more and more on a professional level. Learning by doing is his principle.
His productions — released on well-known labels like Kompakt, Einmusika, Global Underground, Frameworx Music, and Retouch Recordings – have been supported by a wide variety of DJ’s like Adam Beyer, Bart Skills, Carl Cox, Christian Smith, Doomwork, Dubfire, Eelke Kleijn, Gregor Tresher, John Digweed, Karotte, Kevin Saunderson, Luciano, Marco Carola, Misstress Barbara, Nick Warren, Nuno Dos Santos, Paco Osuna, Pig & Dan, Remy, Richie Hawtin, Shlomi Aber, Stephan Bodzin, and many others.
In 2008, Pieter started his imprint Frameworx Music, where he released most of his music and where he started to develop a unique platform for creative artists. In 2013, Pieter released his first artist album Luminosity on his Frameworx Music label. Since that moment his career started growing and his music got played on famous radio stations like 3FM, Radio 538, SLAM! FM, BBC Radio 1, Proton, and many more.
In 2016 Pieter decided to take a step back in his music career, but after 5 years he wasn’t feeling that happy as he was in his years when he was making music and playing all over the world. So when corona came in 2020, he took the chance to put some new energy into his music career.
