FIRST PDX APPEARANCE!
Willem Rebergen, better known by his stage name Headhunterz, is a Dutch hardstyle DJ/producer. Beginning his career with duo partner Bobby van Putten under the alias, Nasty D-Tuners, Rebergen and van Putten renamed their act to Headhunterz when they signed for Dutch hardstyle label Scantraxx in 2005. Van Putten left shortly after their first release on Scantraxx and Willem Rebergen took over the Headhunterz alias as a solo act.
Headhunterz has since become one of the biggest names in hardstyle music and has been a major contribution to its growing popularity. He has also been a key figure in the development and musical direction of hardstyle with a large section of his musical releases placing extra emphasis on melody and distorted, pitched kicks. He has performed at every major hardstyle event including Qlimax, Defqon.1, Q-Base, inQontrol, Decibel and Hard Bass and has performed at popular electronic music festivals Electronic Daisy Festival and Tomorrowland. Headhunterz was the first Hardstyle artist to feature in the DJ Mag Top 100 and has featured every year since 2010, with a personal peak of 11th in 2012. For the majority of his career Headhunterz has released his work on Scantraxx through his own sub-label, Scantraxx Reloaded. In 2008 he released his first studio album with Wildstylez, ‘Project One’ that was followed by ‘Studio Sessions’ in 2010 and ‘Sacrifice’ in 2012. Along with three studio albums, Headhunterz has released many EP’s and singles on Scantraxx through his sub label Scantraxx Reloaded but has also featured on other Scantraxx sub labels and the main label.
**** Pyrotense ****
Pyrotense is a Hardstyle/mainstream project Pyro started in 2008. Originally inspired by artists from Daft Punk to Angerfist, Pyrotense is a mix of all flavors of electronic music focused into hardstyle. Eventually Pyro combined forces with Dj Zymurgy in 2011 who was, at the time, an incredibly long time hardstyle dj in portland. With their tastes and experience combined, the tracks produced by the duo have been hitting the scene hard. The sounds of Pyrotense are quickly becoming a hardstyle force to be reckoned with.
