PoingFM – Renegade Radio brings you the best beats 24/7. We pick the best tracks from daily digging in the Beatport Top 100 in the “Breaks, Bass House, Grime, Leftfield Bass and Tech House” categories. Mainly tracks that you could refer to as “Nu-Skool”, as we all love the “Old School” so much here at PoingFM. We are based in The Netherlands, a small country in Western Europe that has clearly left it’s traces throughout dance history.

All shows are mixed “harmonically” (more about this later) and placed in a large pool of “Virtual Mix Tapes” that are randomised by our Play-out system. At this time you will have to listen over 15 hours before you will here duplicate content. To ensure the best overall sound quality our Play-out system makes use of professional “FM” processing that is used by many radiostations all over the world. Our “HD (High Definition) stream is broadcasting at a solid 320 kbit/sec. You will have a hard time finding one higher across the interwebs.

This radio station was founded by Maurice Steenbergen, a platinum-awarded producer/multi-instrumentalist from The Netherlands. He would sign to the esteemed Rotterdam Records at just nineteen-years-old and soon gained a name for himself for sampling random craziness into his records. By the early 90s, he would top European charts with records like “Poing,” which was one of the main songs that brought a harder style to dance music and “galvanized a Dutch dance industry that flourishes to this day” (L.A. Weekly).

In 2013 Maurice released a documentary called “Oldschool Renegades” about the rise of Rave Culture in the early 90s. Featuring interviews with The Prodigy, Moby, Franky Bones, Joey Beltram, Ya Kid K and many others. The film was featured on various film festivals in Holland, Copenhagen, Finland, Poland and Russia.
