It's like my dreams are coming through every day,” says Dutch DJ Barry Drooger AKA Frontliner. “I've recently rented a building where a new studio is being built for me and I've been privileged enough to play gigs all over the world.”

Much like all aspiring musicians, however, Frontliner is constantly looking to hone his musical style and build on his early success.

“The next big thing coming up is my own stage at Thrillogy Festival in Utrecht, Holland, and I'm also working on a new track that I can't talk about in detail yet. What I can say is that it will be insane, and when the time comes you'll all understand why it's so important to me!” Frontliner fans: you have been warned...
