Style: 
“Raw hardstyle.”
Best known for: 
“Chain Reaction 'The Record Breaking'.”
Tune of the year: 
Not Answerd
Have DJs' fees got out of hand?: 
“It's just something different. Pop has a lot of live performances, EDM still has a lot of DJ performances. The experience of an EDM party is just different from a pop concert.”
Has dance music become the new pop?: 
“A T-Rex, the king of the predators!”
If you could be any animal, what would you be?: 
“Everyone should do what they like, but you won't see us doing it. Doesn't really match our sound.”
Should DJs do "heart hands": 
“No, we don't think it's our duty. But if a DJ wants to share his views on the risks of taking drugs, it might be of value.”
Do DJs have a duty to speak out about drugs?: 
“Two big-ass flame throwers. But why keep it a fantasy?”

What a year it's been for Gunz For Hire. The duo, consisting of Thijs Ploegmakers (AKA Adaro) and Randy Wieland (AKA Ran-D), have seen their stock soar in recent times, particularly on the hardstyle scene where they're rightly spoken of as among the finest such DJs.

“It's been an amazing time,” they confirm. And by the sounds of it, they're not lying either. “We've had some really cool gigs recently, particularly the two Defqon 1 Festivals in Australia and Holland, Tomorrowland in Belgium and, of course, Tomorrowworld in Atlanta, USA.”

Their fans will be delighted to hear that they've been keeping busy on the production front too, with no less than four tracks ('The Massacre', 'Swagger', 'Bassdrum' and 'Inside My Mind') the latest sum of their hardstyle parts. “Making the top 100 means that we have a strong fan-base,” they tell us, “and that's something to be really proud of. So we want to say thanks to all you guys that voted for us.” In Gunz' words: “You are the resistance!”
