About Esther Roozendaal
Esther Roozendaal started DJ-ing as Estroe in 1998 and has since built up an international career. In 2004, Estroe started producing electronic music. Her ambient, house and techno records were released under labels such as Connaisseur, Bedrock and Snejl. Estroe’s first album, Elemental Assets, appeared in 2010 under Connaisseur Recordings with a guest appearance by French DJ/producer Miss Kittin.
Since 2008, Esther also runs label EevoNext with Stefan Robbers where Esther’s role consists of A&R, promotion and scouting new talent matching the labels profile. Furthermore, Esther is a highly valued remixer and also hosts a monthly web radio show for Proton Radio.
Being a DJ, producer, label manager and promotor, Esther acquired the knowledge on all these aspects of her career herself. Her wide experience in the electronic music scene is invaluable, with an ever-increasing amount of requests for her expert opinion. From aspiring producers she is used to answering questions like; ‘how to become a good DJ’, ‘how to produce a good dance track’, ‘how to start your own label’ and ‘how to find a fitting label for your music’ to give examples.
Internet is a great but overwhelming source of information to teach yourself about these subjects. How do you seek out the best websites; which websites are good and which organisations are reliable? Of course you can learn a lot from video tutorials but it doesn’t provide personal support during the creative process.
Via her consultancy Electronic Music Advice, Esther can help you in a personal and direct manner with your DJ-ing and producing skills and when needed, provide practical advice on promoting your music.
Esther’s ambition to start Electronic Music Advice stems from a genuine wish to help others – a quality that characterises her. In the time before her professional music career, Esther worked as a nurse for almost nineteen years; a profession which focuses on taking care of others and personal interaction.
In her current profession in the music industry she learnt it’s very fulfilling to share her experience as a DJ, label manager and promotor. Meanwhile, Esther is a guest lecturer at Zadkine Pop Academy in Rotterdam where she teaches how to make a living as a DJ/producer. At times, she gives workshops at Red Bull Music Academy and Satellite Music.
