Ronald de Foe (real name Mariusz Kopczyński), born in December 1981 in Torun, started his journey with trance music in 1994, thanks to hits of the those days from Marusha, Westbam, Mark ‚OH or Scooter.
A fastination of this kind of dance music was so strong, that Ronald was sure, that he want follow it’s paths to find out where they may lead him. The journey turned out to be a wonderful life companion and a source of many inspirations.
However Ronald’s fascinations never were limited. Being sure that the only limit, which a man can have, is the limit of his own mind, he dicided to make experiments and explore new sounds, in search of those that gave him joy and sense of satisfaction. That’s why in the course of years he was interested in achievements of The Prodigy or dutch hardcore, happy hardcore and rave artists. Despite wonderful beats it wasn’t what he want though.
A turning point was in 1997 -1999. He get to place, where everything what he looked for was found. Those were ‚Forbiden Fruit’ from Paul van Dyk and ‚Cream’, ‚After Love’ and ‚Flying To The Moon’ from Blank & Jones. Those tracks made Ronald really sure, that trance music is what he has looking for all your trip. After Paul van Dyk and Blank & Jones other artists appeared, who made a big role in bulding his music intuition: Schiller, Ferry Corsten, ATB, Darude, Woody Van Eyden, Carlo Resoort, Ron Van Den Beuken, Sam Sharp, Marcel Woods, The Thrillseekers, John O’cllaghan, Lange or John Askew. But the journey was continued. However he didn’t follow many paths, but only this one, that made sense his evolution and music career. It was trance music path, which is enough extensive and has so many subgeneres, in which Ronald as an artist feels perfectly.
