“I managed to release a record at last — after 533 days of radio silence,” says Willem Rebergen, referring to ‘Colors’, the recent single that marked his transition from the Scantraxx label to Ultra Records.
But while 2013 has been relatively quiet on the production front for the Dutchman, he’s still been working with the frenetic intensity you’d expect of hardstyle’s finest.
“Making the video with Krewella for our ‘United Kids of the World’ track, was a truly inspiring experience,” he says when asked about this year’s highlights. “Going to places that have never experienced hardstyle has been special and doing Defqon and EDC in one weekend was a unique moment.”
He’s keen to keep pushing things forward in 2014. “I see myself breaking free and exploring new territories, both musically and personally with my career.” So keep your ears peeled.
