It took Belgian Coone 30 days to make his second album, 'The Challenge'. “Almost impossible, but we managed to do it with episodes on YouTube everyday!” he recalls of the process, where he was followed by a cameraman, recording one infectious, bouncing, hardstyle track after another every two days, collaborating with artists Zatox, Psyko Punkz, Deepack and Da Tweekaz along the way. It was indeed a 'Challenge' and he rose to it. Releasing his first single 'Protect The Innocent' when he was 18, Coone has gone on to develop his own label Dirty Workz into something of note and respect on the scene. “I wanted to give my music total freedom, to be able to do my own thing,” he explains. His sights are now set on a live show and concert experience where the aim of the game will be to sing and dance the night away, hardstyle!
