Mitchell Niemeyer is taking on the world! As one of The Netherlands top
DJs/Producers, this formal model has successfully established himself as an
international talent having emerged from Amsterdam’s thriving Electronic
Dance Music scene.
Proud to be a global ambassador for the Dutch house sound, Mitchell’s
talents have taken him to many of the world’s leading club cities such as
Miami, London, Hong Kong, Las Vegas, Los Angeles and of course, Europe’s
dance hub, Ibiza.
His successes include his participation as one of the musical driving forces
behind Voyeur – the concept enjoying a massive fan base with AIR
Amsterdam selling out with demand for tickets far out-stripping the venue’s
capacity!
In addition to Voyeur, Mitchell’s showcased his talents at recent gigs such as
Mysteryland Chili, TomorrowWorld, Groove Cruise LA, and at standout clubs
such as Pacha in Ibiza and LIV/Story in Miami. Similarly, he’s been a key
ingredient to the success of Dirty Dutch around the world – lining up as one
of the lead artists representing the best from The Netherlands.
Commercially, Mitchell’s 2013 hit #Pantsdown, enjoyed a two-week stay in
the Beatport Top-10 – the track growing his fan base and proving the artistry
he demonstrates at gigs translates to sales!
His remixing skills have seen him work on tracks by artists such as Madcon
and Kelly Rowland – the former Destiny’s Child singer also a fellow TW Steel
brand ambassador, a relationship that has seen them perform together on
numerous occasions at parties hosted by the global watch brand.
2014 will see a new club track from Mitchell, released in April by Dim Mak –
the label owned by Steve Aoki.
Mitchell’s talents continue to be in-demand and more importantly recognized
by key influencers in the industry – one example being famed club owner
David Grutman (LIV/Story), who simply hailed Mitchell as ‘The Real Deal’
having booked him for a Miami gig.
Niemeyer certainly is ‘The Real Deal’ and his talents continue to shine as he
takes them around the world. To hear him is to believe him! Once you’re a
believer, you’re strapped in and joining him on his remarkable journey!

Adaro

 

Thijs Ploegmakers is onder de 'Harder Styles' liefhebbers beter bekend als Adaro.
Adaro is born in a village in the south of the Netherlands. He produced several electronic music styles, his alias for Hardstyle is DJ Adaro. Since he first heard the sounds of Thunderball's "Bonzai Channel One" in 1993, he was hooked! He got a feeling that he'd never felt before, he immediately fell in love with that hard beat. He loved to watch his heroes behind the wheels of steel, he went to lots of big raves and clubs the following years. He started spinning with some friends and collecting lots of great vinyl. He wanted to create music too, so around the year 2000 he started producing all kinds of electronic music.
In 2008 he started producing hardstyle together with his good friend Ran-D, and early 2009 this resulted in their first release on A² Records; "Ran-D vs Adaro – My Name is Hardstyle". In 2009 he played at the Q-Base festival in Germany. Their track "Ran-D & Adaro – Under Attack" is considered as one of the most popular hardstyle tracks from 2010 (#2 in the Hardtraxx Top of 2010). Their other tracks like "Struggle for Existence" and their bootleg remix of "In for the Kill" were heavily supported by all major jocks.
His solotracks "The Haunter of the Dark", "Hit you with that Bang Shit" and "No Time to Sleep" are supported by the biggest names in the scene and more is to come! The first two tracks appeared on the long awaited A² Records album "Unleashed". 
Last year Adaro played on festivals like Defqon.1, The Qontinent, Dreamfields and Q-Base.
In the summer of 2011 Ran-D and Adaro started their official collaboration with their new project "Gunz for Hire". They made a big impression in the hardstyle scene and events like Decibel Outdoor, Thrillogy and Qlimax are already on their schedule. Last year they produced tracks like "Gangsters Don't Dance", "Put it On", "Sorrow" and "Kings of the Underground". They have big plans in the future with G4H so watch out!

 

 

25 Oktober '14 - Yellow Claw
Yellow Claw

 

Three years ago, fellow DJs Jim Aasgier, Nizzle and MC Bizzey teamed up to form the creative and innovative group Yellow Claw. A big part of the Yellow Claw success are their trademark skills, interaction with the audience, their music video’s and a sound that crosses boundaries and mixes up genres.

While independently releasing most of their tracks on Soundcloud with 180K followers to boot, two EPs were released on Diplo’s label Mad Decent, presenting Amsterdam Twerk & Trap music. Along their own big productions, the trio made official remixes for names, such as Tiësto, Iggy Azalea, Martin Garrix, Headhunterz, Showtek and Major Lazer, which in fact made it to the Major Lazer’s remix album.

In November 2013, Yellow Claw released their fifth single ‘Shotgun’. The video reached over 23 million views on Youtube and Spinnin’ Records announced the record’s gold status. Continuing on their succesful releases, Yellow Claw recently presented their popular Mixtape #7 with over 760K plays and yet more to come while they’re working on their debut album, which carries

the same name as their brand new capsule collection with Daily Paper, ‘Blood for Mercy’.

With their upcoming debut album and performances at huge festivals such as Tomorrowland, TomorrowWorld and Made in America in sight, Yellow Claw makes one thing clear – they are ready to take over the world.
