Rob Fabrie aka DJ Headbanger/DJ Waxweazle
Rob’s career started as a dj in 1985 in some small clubs.
In 1989 Richard van Naamen, Paul Elstak and Rob formed a group Holy Noise .
Many big hits were made: Father forgive them, Get down everybody, James Brown is still alive ,The nightmare.
The group went to play in New York, Belgium, Germany,France, Greece and did a club tour throughout Holland.
The records where sold worldwide and top positions in Japan and Germany where also reached.
One album, was produced: Organoised Crime
In 1992 the holy noise members came up with a track called Amsterdam waar lech dat dan and they put it out
under the name of The Euromasters.
This record was the very beginning of the infamous label Rotterdam Records.
On the euromasters record Rob used an alias name for the first time: Waxweazle.
In 1993 Rob met Lex van Coeverden and he was the label manager of Dance International Records.
He liked Rob’s new tracks and wanted to release them.
Using the alias of Waxweazle as a writer and the artist name of Somebody from Rotterdam the tracks were released.
Success in both Germany and Japan followed; other productions on the label went the same way.
In 1994 Duncan Stutterheim (ID&T) had a meeting with Ed Bout (Holograpic), Peter Paul Pigmans and Rob.
This meeting resulted in a collab between Peter Paul and Rob. Together they made 2 tracks.
This is the Thunderdome and Motherfuckers you’re gonna die, the name for the project became 3 Steps ahead.
The second e.p on their label Steps records were 2 solo tracks by each of them. Peter Paul and Rob wanted both to
go their own ways so Peter Paul kept on using the name 3 steps Ahead and Rob was offered his own label by ID&T.
At the end of 94 Waxweazle Vinyl was started.
The First release Legs outsold all of the other records that were released by that time at ID&T.
Hits like Legs, Spread your wings (with Guitar Rob),Pump it dj (with Guitar Rob), Hardcore Power,Brainscan,FIXXXED (with DJ Promo)and many more were released.

In 1997 Rob decided to go back to his harder edged sound of Somebody from Rotterdam and slowed the tempo down..Sweet Dreams (you bastard) was born. Rob decided that he didn’t want it to be released as a Waxweazle production so the name HEADBANGER was born.

No Law and ultimately Headbanger’s Theme feat Alee & Ruffian.
