This year Dutch hardstyle DJ/producer Brennan Heart fulfilled one of his lifelong dreams. "I've set up my own record label, Brennan Heart Music (BHM)," explains the 29-year-old.
"I've always wanted my own musical platform." When he hasn't been creating music (such as YouTube sensation 'Lose My Mind') this year, he's been playing it. "It's great to see that musical trends don't stop at the borders of countries," says Brennan, aka Fabian Bohn. "What excites me is that there's a lot more harder-edged tracks being produced lately. I love Hardwell and also Knife Party, they both have that raw energy that everybody can get into."
Brennan's also been getting hot-under-the-headphones about Aussie music-maker Code Black. "He pushes the boundaries when it comes to hardstyle," says Brennan. "There aren't many producers out there doing that."
