Style or substance:
Both, what's to share when nobody even wants to see it?
“Hardstyle is a very intense music style, mostly focused on partying instead of a whole world around it,” Joram Metekohy AKA Wildstylez tells DJmag. “We specialize in good production quality, and sure, we like champagne once in a while,” he adds wryly. 2011 has seen Joram's music garner even more devotees, but he is most proud of the launch of his own label, Digital Age. “ I wanted to have something where I could build on my sound, my vision. We are not just bound to the current 'limits' of hardstyle. I want an open-minded label with room for real talent.” With the momentum constantly building, Joram is taking things one step at a time. “At this moment, things are going really fast, so I am not making plans too far ahead,” he says. “I know what I want myself and it will show soon enough.” DAVID MCCARTHY
