Coolage, born in 1990 as Ridge Hamelink, started DJ-ing in 2005 when he got interested by his brother, who was a well known DJ in The Hague at that time, after a few gigs that he got invited to.
Coolage started playing on vinyl and kept practising and practising till he mastered playing on vinyl when just when he wanted to hit the clubs, all clubs in Holland switched to CDJ’s. He recorded his vinyl, put it on CD’s and hit the clubs as a warm-up DJ most of the times. He started playing in some small clubs in The Hague when after a while he became resident DJ at the Mellow Moods parties in The Hague and after that he became resident DJ at Zanzibar Beachclub during the summers in Scheveningen.
Coolage played in clubs like: Seven, Luden, Deftig, ‘t Maliehuisje, Cue Bar, Paard van Troje & Club NL. He also played alot during winter times in The Harbour Club.
In Paard van Troje he plays as a resident DJ during the THURST parties which are still going every last thursday of every month.
He will bring you loveable beats in the style of Soul- & Deep tech house during his gigs. So keep checking his page for upcoming gigs!
Since May 2013, Coolage is working as a groundsteward for KLM in the departure halls.
