I'm a 25-year-old from Trier, Germany, who's passionate about Hardstyle music. I started loving this genre back in 2010 and haven't stopped since. By day, I work as a programmer, but my real passion is DJing. My style is a mix of Rawstyle and Xtra-Raw, creating intense and varied sets. I've been DJing for almost ten years, starting with an XDJ-RX1 and sharing Frenchcore mixes on YouTube. I've also streamed live on CoreTime.FM and HardBase.FM in Germany. Over the years, I've played at various events, not always focused on Hardstyle, but I always make sure to end with a powerful set. I've upgraded my equipment over time, from the RX3 to the Prime 4, and now I use three CDJ 3000s and a DJM-A9. This is the setup I used for my most recent mix. I also have a DJM-V10. In short, I'm all about challenging the usual, blending different styles, and fully embracing the hardstyle!close
As a kid, Joep first encountered the beats of harder style music during Primary School, and little did he know, it would become an unshakeable passion. From the bassline to the hypnotic melodies, this genre gripped Joep's soul and refused to let go. Fast forward to just a few years ago when Joep had the chance to step behind the decks at a friend's place. Immediately he was hooked. For his birthday, Joep received a DDJ-400 to start practicing which soon became an obsession. Amidst the contemporary beats and modern mixes, Joep remains captivated by the classical sounds of the early harder styles. Each track is a chapter, and every mix is a narrative that takes the audience on a sonic adventure. The harder style music that captured Joep's heart in the old days is now the driving force behind his creativity!close
