About Darksider


Born and raised near Rotterdam. At the age of 12,

Patrick Ritskes came in contact with Hardcore when his nephew got a Thunderdome cd for his birthday, and played it whole day long.

From this time on, he was infected by the harder sound and bought his own records and cd's! At the age of 20,

he started his first steps of producing and grinded further with his talent to find his unique sound. He released several Tracks on Labels like Hooligan Records, DJ's United Red Italy, Royalz Records, Node6 Records and Terror Traxx.

After these first big steps, Patrick Ritskes came into contact with Enzyme Records.....
