Tune of the year: 
<p><span style="font-size: small;">“Crypsis ‘Break Down Low’.”</span></p>

Do DJs have a duty to speak out about drugs?: 
<p><span style="font-size: small;">“Always the best crowd! We are in it for the people, so if we get the best crowds out there guaranteed, we would be the happiest people alive!”</span></p>

Long regarded as one of hardstyle’s key acts, D-Block & S-Te-Fan have had a huge year, not least because of increased interest in the genre they represent. 
“We did some tracks which inspired the scene to create different varieties of songs within hardstyle. Besides that, hardstyle got more and more recognised… they are finally accepting it.”

Even aside from scene developments, D-Block & S-Te-Fan have encountered great success in 2013, racking up 35 festival appearances, an Australian tour and more live shows then ever, alongside new releases such as the highly melodic — yet still thumping — ‘From the Hard’.

The duo will, as ever, continue to use their music to feed the genre they love, aiming, they say, to “create a scene, in which everyone who loves this music has a city or club nearby that they can visit to hear hardstyle. This kind of music is there to dance to and hear LOUD!”
