This event is all ages

Code Black
Code Black has played events such as Defqon.1, Qlimax, Mysteryland, Tomorrowland, HardBass and Decibel, being
estimated as one of the greatest talents Hardstyle has to offer. Lately, tracks like 'Can't Hold Me Back' and 'Brighter
Day' have confirmed the outstanding skills of Code Black as one of the top Hardstyle producers. His stage
presence and fresh musical ideas are contributing to his status, being well respected among colleagues and
supported by a fast growing worldwide fan base.
Go where it's happening...Code Black (Corey Soljan) acknowledged that his future as a Hardstyle producer
wouldn't be in his hometown Sydney, so he relocated to the forefront of Hardstyle, the Netherlands. Originally
moving in the beginning of 2011 as the duo 'Bioweapon' and later forming his solo act 'Code Black' by the end of
2011. Within the first months of his career he already struck gold with a hit which would place his name directly in
the spotlight. "Red Planet" burst his name on to the scene with huge impact; the melody could be heard by
thousands singing along in perfect harmony, no matter where it was played...from the Gelredome for Qlimax and
Hardbass with up to 30,000 people, to the clubs and biggest summer festivals throughout the year, the crowd
showed the proof that this was a hit and they loved it!
Summer 2012 came with another big success for Code Black, yet another hit with his dance floor smasher 'Can't
Hold Me Back'.
The track gained massive support from so many of the top DJ's and producers and has been played numerous
times at every festival throughout the summer.
'Can't Hold Me Back' was named at the end of the year by 'Headhunterz' as his favorite track of 2012 and will
forever be a memory of the 'summer-anthem of 2012'.
'Brighter Day' is yet another masterpiece and is already a huge success of 2013, gaining massive support from his
colleges and being picked up by day- time dutch radio station SLAM-FM for their TOP40 playlist, reaching a peak of
number 8 in the TOP40 chart after 8 weeks!
Code Black succeeds in combining epic melodies with raw edgy production and an overall awe- inspiring
atmosphere to his tracks. It's the result of his talent and perseverance to be unique with his music, as well as a
sensitive understanding on how to perform in a live environment and balance his sets that get’s the crowds moving.
Be prepared for another big year from Code Black!
Da Tweekaz
Da Tweekaz, also known as Kenth Kvien and Marcus Nordli, are a Norwegian Hardstyle duo signed to Dirty Workz.
Down to earth guys, with a passion for Hardstyle and Hard Dance in general, they give every crowd a moment to
remember. When not behind the decks or in the studio, you can probably catch them partying in the front with their
fans.
Behind the decks their energy is unlike any other. Sunglasses on, smiles from ear to ear and fists pumping to each
beat, they're a true spark to energize any party. From the personal setting of a club to the vast and immense setting
of a festival, they bring their unique style to the table with an undying passion.
Besides their ever popular debut album "Time 2 Shine" which scored massive hits in Hard Dance charts worldwide,
another major step in their career was moving away from their Norwegian roots and planting themselves firmly in
Belgium, where they now reside. This makes an accessible means for bookings in the Hardstyle dense countries
surrounding Belgium.
Since in Belgium, Da Tweekaz have realized the high demand of fresh music from their fans, which made them
come up with the concept of #Tweekay14 in 2014: they released one video clip and track each month throughout
the whole year. Because of the big success of this concept, they decided to bring it back in 2016. #Tweekay16 is
now in full force, bringing their fans new and unique sounds each month.
If you're not already entranced by this duo, make sure you check their performance when you have the chance. It's
unique, it's whacky and it's down- right fun! If you find yourself in the crowd at one of their performances, be sure to
party in the front! You might even catch one of their limited #Tweekay16 rubber duckies!
GAMMER
Gammer (real name Matt Lee) is a UK hardcore and hard dance producer and DJ.

Gammer made his first appearance in the Hardcore scene during 2002 and since he has gone on to be a very successful and prolific producer, being best known for his extensive discography on the revamped Essential Platinum label. A large proportion of his tracks on the label are collaborations with the label's founder Dougal, though he has also had solo releases on his own label, Muffin Music. He has appeared with other artists such as Hixxy, and Darren Styles. Gammer is considered one of the leading artists in UK hardcore. Aside from his vinyl and digital download releases, his music appears on many albums, including the highly successful Bonkers series.

In April 2007, Gammer started his own label, Muffin Music, and released a promotional mix for it. In 2008, 2009 and now 2010, Gammer was named Hardcore DJ of the year, a major honour won previously by Darren Styles. In 2010 Gammer and Dougal won best Hardcore producers. It is also widely believed[weasel words] that Gammer produces for Baked Potato Records, where he releases singles under the name "Anon".[citation needed]

Gammer originally began his producing career in Hardcore before moving into Hard Dance. He has produced many Hard Dance tracks under 'Matt Lee'. One track in particular ("Go") caught the attention of Hard Dance DJ Andy Whitby and, as a result, Gammer was signed to Whitby's AWsum label.
LNY TNZ
They 'don't give a f*ck about tomorrow' or the boundaries of the EDM genre.

Teaming up in their hometown, Vlaardingen, in 2004, Mitchell Vreeswijk and Jan Stadhouders formed LNY TNZ with the shared passion of putting a new twist on hard hitting EDM. The group rapidly made a name for themselves, as they released underground tracks that evolved the genre into something entirely in and of its own.

They quickly became pioneers in Dutch music as a DJ tandem, known for their unique sound. Support from other leading artists came pouring in as LNY TNZ tracks appeared on numerous compilation CDs and received radio play worldwide. After mixing their second official compilation CD in 2007, LNY TNZ toured at major festivals and events around the globe, emerging as a leader in the scene.

Following a string of tours, Mitchell and Jan took a break to study, travel, and work on other art forms, including film directing. In 2012, they came up with a new round of music. LNY TNZ recorded several underground bootlegs and released them online to the support of their fans and major artists, who welcomed the duo back from hiatus.

In 2013, LNY TNZ presented their single 'Last Night Ever' with Yellow Claw from the forthcoming collaboration EP 'All Your Bass.' The hit was released by Sony BMG and Dim Mak, along with a popular video that takes place over a full tilt night in Tokyo.

LNY TNZ are now here to stay, currently working on more major collaborations and putting out new music that will continue to push and the boundaries of their unique combination of hardstyle, trap, and EDM.
Noisecontrollers
Noisecontrollers

The
Full
Story
Since
the
world
of
Hardstyle
emerged
from
the
depths
of
the
universe,
very
few
acts
have
faced
the
test
of
time
and
succeeded
in
bringing
true
passion
and
innovative
creativity
to
their
productions
for
many
years.
Noisecontrollers
is
certainly
one
example
of
a
rare
breed
of
pure
creativity
that
has
thrived
in
the
world
of
Hardstyle
for
almost
one
decade.
The
Beginning:
Bas
Oskam
formed
the
act
Noisecontrollers
in
2005
with
counterpart
member
Arjan
Terpstra.
Their
ultimate
goal
to
convey
a
personal
vision
and
devotion
for
music
by
translating
this
into
their
own
productions
that
travelled
from
the
studio
to
the
frontline
of
exciting
performances.
Bas
had
an
intense
passion
for
music
and
this
was
seen
from
the
very
beginning
in
earlier
releases
which
gained
a
special
interest
from
Fusion
records,
releasing
“Crump”
and
“Malboro
Man,”
which
are
still
appreciated
as
classics
almost
10
years
later.
Noisecontrollers’
highly
admirable
production
techniques
shuttled
the
genre
of
hardstyle
into
the
next
dimension,
generating
an
overwhelmingly
positive
response
from
the
public
and
also
managing
to
set
the
bar
extremely
high
for
the
production
process
of
hardstyle
altogether.
Early
Milestones:
Two
years
after
shaking
bursting
into
the
hardstyle
scene,
in
2007,
Noisecontrollers
decided
to
introduce
a
special
live
act
which
quickly
saw
them
landing
their
musical
charm
upon
crowds
all
over
Europe,
the
USA
and
Australia.
There
was
no
creative
respite
for
Noisecontrollers,
as
the
act
soared
from
strength
to
strength
in
engendering
a
matchless
sound
design
that
inspired
many
artists,
including
artists
from
other
genres.
2009
marked
a
truly
special
year
in
terms
of
musical
creativity,
which
saw
Bas
shifting
into
top
gear
in
the
studio
and
managing
to
release
an
outstanding
19
releases
which
included
unforgettable
hits
such
as
“Attack
Again,”
“Venom”
and
“Tonight”(with
Headhunterz
and
Wildstylez).
By
this
time,
Bas
was
releasing
his
tracks
at
Fusion,
Scantraxx
and
Q-­‐Dance
records.
To
top
these
classics,
an
incredibly
memorable
performance
followed
at
In
Qontrol,
which
was
accompanied
by
the
hit
anthem
“CTRL
ALT
DELETE.”
Special
solo
nights
followed
in
The
Outland
(Rotterdam)
in
2010,
which
was
also
a
year
that
saw
more
hits
such
as
“Faster
N’
Further,”
“Yellow
Minute”
and
the
Decibel
anthem
“Summer
In
The
City”
being
unleashed
into
wild
crowds.
2011
marked
the
release
of
one
of
the
most
famous
hits
“Gimme
Love,”
which
had
truly
ensured
Noisecontrollers
status
in
the
musical
world,
as
well
as
cementing
the
honorable
duty
of
hosting
an
area
at
Thrillogy.
Following
this
was
the
release
of
Noisecontrollers
first
album
in
2012,
E=
NC2
(The
Science
Of
Hardstyle).
This
album
brought
out
an
array
of
fresh
new
tracks
and
also
remixes
such
as
“So
High”
and
“Universe
Was
Born.”
Their
first
album
occurred
simultaneously
with
one
of
the
most
memorable
events
in
Noisecontrollers’
history:
X-­‐Qlusive
Noisecontrollers
in
the
Heineken
Music
Hall.
The
spin
off
was
incredible,
which
cemented
Noisecontrollers
notoriety
not
only
within
the
hardstyle
world,
but
within
the
entire
world
of
electronic
dance
music,
with
Noisecontrollers
reaching
#27
in
the
DJ
Mag
top
100
DJs.
Additionally,
Noisecontrollers
has
had
the
honourable
task
to
create
anthems
for
various
parties
such
as
Qlimax
(2014),
Defqon.1
(2011
&
2012),
In
Qontrol
(2009),
IQON
(2013),
Decibel
(2010
&
2013).
Noisecontrollers’
Sound:
Is
based
on
a
combination
of
stylistic
techniques
gathered
from
the
strengths
of
many
other
genres
of
music
that
inspire
Bas
such
as
hardcore,
dubstep
and
house
music.
On
the
side
of
hardstyle
production,
Bas
also
produces
dubstep
underneath
the
name
“Pavelow.”
When
listening
to
tracks
from
Noisecontrollers,
it
is
almost
impossible
to
predict
what
will
come
next.
The
excitement
and
energy
never
ceases
to
amaze
listeners
from
the
early
productions
to
the
most
recent.
Noisecontrollers
have
also
released
a
number
of
tracks
containing
more
“experimental”
elements
that
transcend
the
boundaries
of
traditional
hardstyle,
succeeding
to
open
the
minds
of
all
individuals.
In
2013,
game
changer
track
“Get
Loose”
with
Showtek
was
released
on
Owsla,
the
Noisecontrollers
remix
of
“Apollo”
by
Hardwell
was
released
on
Revealed
Recordings
followed
by
his
2015
release
“Only
You”
which
was
released
on
Armada.
These
cross-­‐genre
tracks
generated
a
huge
response
from
their
highly
unique,
yet
sophisticated
sound
that
branched
to
fans
outside
of
the
Hard
Dance
demographic.
The
contagiously
addictive
signature
sound
of
Noisecontrollers
is
based
on
the
foundations
of
high
quality
production
with
an
ambition
to
master
the
depths
of
hardstyle
with
an
undying
ability
to
emotionally
captivate
all
listeners.
The
co-­‐operative
balance
between
the
unique
melodic
structure
and
intense
kicks
that
most
producers
would
die,
for
makes
the
Noisecontrollers’
sound
so
time-­‐
transcendent
and
unites
listeners
from
all
generations
and
walks
of
life.
In
Recent
Times:
In
2013,
there
was
a
shift
in
the
act.
Although
Bas
and
Arjan
performed
for
the
last
time
together
at
Qlimax
2013,
that
was
definitely
not
the
end
of
the
game-­‐changing
productions.
Bas
Oskam
held
the
baton
with
pride
as
he
continued
the
legacy
of
Noisecontrollers
as
a
solo
act,
seeing
his
personal
career
soar
even
further
to
incredible
heights.
The
biggest
success
was
evident
when
he
released
the
stellar
album
“All
Around”
in
March
2014
on
Q-­‐Dance
records.
“All
Around”
has
literally
spread
all
around
the
world
as
Bas
has
showcased
the
album
on
tours
across
Europe,
including
an
entire
German
tour,
also
touring
throughout
North
America.
The
album
itself
demonstrates
an
extremely
sophisticated
approach
to
hardstyle,
with
tracks
such
as
“Down
Down,”
“What?!”
and
“Cats,
Jets
and
Breaks”
with
Wildstylez
becoming
some
of
the
most
original
tracks
in
the
history
of
modern
hardstyle.
If
the
success
of
Noisecontrollers’
second
album
wasn't
enough,
his
musical
capabilities
across
the
spectrum
of
electronic
dance
music
was
celebrated,
as
he
climbed
his
way
to
reach
#66
in
the
DJ
Mag
top
100
DJ’s
and
coming
in
at
#67
in
2014.
At
the
conclusion
of
2014,
Bas’
musical
success
has
been
globally
appreciated,
as
he
was
given
the
honor
to
create
the
Qlimax
2014
anthem
“The
Source
Code
Of
Creation,”
which
represented
a
truly
memorable
performance.
After
the
incredible
success
of
“All
Around”
in
2014,
in
2015
Noisecontrollers
surprised
his
fans
with
the
announcement
of
his
third
album
“All
Night
Long”
which
was
an
album
consisting
of
collected
studio
material
from
2013-­‐2015.
Taking
the
non-­‐traditional
approach
to
creating
an
album,
“All
Night
Long”
is
an
album
that
thrives
on
experimentation,
diversity,
cross-­‐over
approaches
and
a
top-­‐
notch
sound
design.
The
album
pushed
beyond
the
boundaries
of
modern
hardstyle
and
made
its
cross
into
trance,
EDM,
dubstep
and
raw
hardstyle.
As
an
artist,
Noisecontrollers
created
this
album
to
portray
his
personal
vision
on
music
as
a
whole
and
the
concept
has
served
as
a
huge
inspiration
to
the
scene
and
even
expanded
the
musical
horizons
of
many
listeners.
The
album
itself
generated
a
plethora
of
positive
responses
and
standout
tracks
such
as
the
title
track
“All
Night
Long,”
“Infinity,”
and
“Here
We
Go”
demonstrated
the
incredible
precision
and
creativity
within
Bas’
productions.
As
a
follow-­‐up
to
the
success
of
his
third
album,
at
the
conclusion
of
2015,
Bas
celebrated
his
biggest
career
milestone
to
date

10
years
of
Noisecontrollers.
In
light
of
this
incredible
landmark,
an
inspiring
documentary
was
released,
allowing
the
public
to
immerse
themselves
in
Bas’
personal
and
professional
journey
to
success.
The
documentary
itself
generated
overwhelmingly
positive
feedback
from
other
professionals
in
the
Hardstyle
industry
and
fans.
In
addition,
an
exclusive
’10
Years
Noisecontrollers’
collector’s
album
was
released,
which
encompassed
his
entire
musical
journey
and
highlighted
his
most
successful
productions.
Aside
from
the
digitalism
of
the
CD
and
documentary,
‘10
Years
Noisecontrollers’
was
also
vivaciously
celebrated
at
various
events
that
were
part
of
his
exclusive
tour.
With
his
love
for
music
taking
him
to
all
corners
of
the
globe,
2015
was
the
year
in
which
Bas
was
able
to
perform
in
South
Africa
and
India,
meaning
that
he
has
performed
in
every
single
continent,
excluding
Antarctica.
Marking
his
biggest
year
to
date,
2015
also
opened
up
an
array
of
creative
collaborations
for
Noisecontrollers,
who
discovered
an
immense
chemistry
whilst
working
with
Bass
Modulators.
Their
initial
collaboration
“Rocked
Up”
ultimately
marked
the
start
of
this
stellar
collaboration.
Followed
by
the
feel-­‐good
Summer-­‐jam
“Solar,”
which
was
premiered
at
Defqon.1
during
the
eminent
end-­‐
show,
it
wasn’t
long
until
this
melodic
and
powerful
masterpiece
dominated
the
charts;
taking
the
#1
spot
on
Hardstyle.com,
entering
the
Spotify
Viral
50
in
The
Netherlands
and
taking
the
#1
spot
in
the
Hardstyle
Top
100
(2015).
After
this
incredible
collaboration,
Noisecontrollers
was
then
invited
to
remix
Bass
Modulators
2014
track
“Let
Me
See
Ya,”.
From
initial
collaborations
to
the
formation
of
an
innovative,
new
clique,
Noisecontrollers
and
Bass
Modulators
soon
made
the
decision
to
team
up
for
an
exclusive
live-­‐act
under
the
name
NCBM.
Officially
launching
this
exciting
new
venture
at
Hard
Bass
in
January,
2016
in
front
of
over
26,000
die-­‐hard
fans,
this
initial
performance
marked
huge
success
for
the
group,
who
premiered
upcoming
productions
“Holding
On,”
“Het
Gevoel
Van,”
“Glitch”
and
Noisecontrollers’
brand
new
solo
track
“The
Game.”
Leading
the
way
creatively
and
inspiring
the
future
productions
in
the
world
of
hardstyle,
Bas
says
himself
that
“After
releasing
over
100
tracks,
the
process
of
creating
music
influences
my
life
incredibly
and
means
the
world
to
me…”
