Questions Top100 DJs 2012 - admin - 2015-06-30 17:10

Best known for: 
'D.W.X', 'Ducktool' and 'Break The Spell'
Tune of the year: 
Technoboy 'Rage (Frontliner Remix)'
Breakthrough DJ/Producer of 2012: 
If you were a superhero, what would your superpower be: 
Super Mario Bros, simply because we want to be pixelated!
Should you play to the crowd or for yourself: 
Both! But mostly for yourself. If you're happy with your job as a DJ, the crowd will notice.
What does EDM mean to you: 
We eat to it, sleep to it, drink to it, breathe it, dance to it.
Should celebrities be DJs: 
If you're referring to Paris Hilton, then no. Let's keep the spotlight on the people who are actually working their way to the top.
Have you ever been thrown off the decks: 
Do people get thrown off the decks? We'd only imagine that happening if a DJ put on Justin Bieber by mistake.
Are you a DJ if you don't beat match: 
Let's just say anyone can 'sync' two tracks together with all the new features on CD players.
Where's the next dance music capital: 
Antwerp in Belgium has been growing rapidly.

In the Top 100 last year, hardstyle heavy Coone named Norway's Da Tweekaz as his breakthrough act of 2011, and this year the duo of Kenth Kvien and Marcus Nordli make their own entry in the poll.

"Our journey started in a small bedroom studio here in Oslo, and we're actually still here," they joke.

"With very few expectations for the future, we've always been positively surprised in our growth and success within the hardstyle scene. The big step for us was when Coone welcomed us with open arms at his Dirty Workz label. From then on, things expanded rapidly." Edging in on the Dutch talents who continue to dominate the hardstyle scene, Kvien and Nordli are relishing the underdog role.

"We do our own thing. And as outsiders of the Dutch wolfpack of producers, we see things a bit differently, and we have without a doubt quite different inspirations. We're also not afraid to put humour in our tracks." They've both returned from an extended working holiday in the hardstyle motherland during the summer. "The contrast between Norway and Holland is both economical and cultural. But let's just say we didn't suffer from starvation or lack of alcohol during our stay," they laugh.
