During his studies, he worked for several major recording studios in the Netherlands. As a keyboardist he was engaged to accompany the Beach Boys on the Hammond organ, and also to play keyboards for David Bowie. Starink graduated in 1976, later giving his own Music Academy lectures.
Starink's debut album was Cristallin, but his best known releases are his cover versions of other hits, film and television themes, which have been released on his own record label, Star Inc.
Towards the end of the 1980s, Starink co-operated with Arcade Records, and released a series of 'Synthesizer' albums, which succeeded mainly in the European market. His album, Synthesizer Gold, made it into the Top 40 of the UK Albums Chart in 1993. His previous album, Synthesizer Greatest, peaked at #22 in the UK.
