Hardstyle’s #1 DJ/Producer, Headhunterz, announces the exciting Hard With Style USA lineup including Wildstylez, Rebourne and Adrenalize. On August 23, HARD with STYLE makes its US debut in the Greater Los Angeles area, in association with Insomniac’s Basscon, expecting a capacity of 5,500 roaring fans making this the largest Hardstyle event in America to date.
Wildstylez is one of the most recognized artists in harder dance. His collaboration with Headhunterz as Project One was one of the scene’s most successful partnerships, while his former Digital Age label with Noisecontrollers and current Lose Control music label is a Hardstyle powerhouse. Wildstylez finished #41 in DJ Mag’s top 100 poll last year, and with Brennan Heart, created the crossover anthem ‘Lose My Mind’. In 2013 he went even further with ‘Year Of Summer’, which became a top 40 radio hit, and the first Hardstyle track to receive Platinum Status certification in Holland. His success has not gone unnoticed by the wider dance music spectrum, and he has remixes forthcoming for EDM heavy hitters Hardwell and Nicky Romero.
Adrenalize is the definition of a rising star. Now 18, he celebrated his 16th birthday behind the decks at Headhunterz – Hard With Style at Ziggo Dome with a crowd of 13.000 people. With an arsenal of heart wrenching attitude, uplifting melodies and innovative thinking, it is no secret that Adrenalize’s talent has given him an opportunity like no other performing at some of the worlds largest events and festivals including DefQon.1, Q-Base, Decibel and Tomorrowland, while having the support of his icons Headhunterz, Ran-D and Wildstylez.
Original winning Insomniac’s Discovery Project in 2012, to play at Beyond Wonderland, Kayzo has exploded onto the scene with an eclectic collection of musical diversity, while bringing a real unique flair. Without staying in the box with one style, this young-gun has quite the collection of remixes and originals including Flosstradamus’ “Moshpit (Kayzo Edit),” “Recoil” ft. Jordan Alexander, and his original track “Tekken,” which was chosen by Krewella to be featured on their ‘Future Sounds of EDM’ compilation, released on Ministry of Sound. With these hard hitting tracks and a heart of a lion, Kyzo has gained the respect and support from Carnage, Adventure Club, Diplo, Candyland, and Excision.
Rebourne is a true hardstyle prodigy. So much so that Headhunterz selected him to be the first artist releasing on HARD with Style Records. With this outlook, Timon is fresher than ever with euphoric melodies and fueled with raw emotion of peace, meshed with uplifting uniting bass and rhythm.
The Hard With Style platform is 100% curated by Willem Rebergen, aka Headhunterz, and its events meant to push attendees musically. Past lineups have included Audiofreq, Rebourne, Toneshifterz, and MC Villain, and held events in Australia (Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane), Amsterdam, the Netherlands, and Germany (Hamburg, Berlin, Augsburg). Beginning in 2011, Headhunterz wanted to give his fans something special by creating his own brand, HARD with STYLE. Starting out as a monthly podcast personally handpick by Headhunterz himself, HWS represents quality and new cutting edge music. This unrivaled international platform has since turned into a label and launched world-wide events, dedicated to bringing the best in hardstyle. Since its inception, over 400 diverse tracks have been selected and heard in every continent.
