Alpha² vs Luna
“Representing the harder styles in dance music, we got to spread this message to the party people all over the world” is what they proclaimed in the year 2003. And the Alpha² kept their word! For a decade already, these pioneers of the rough and raw sound are spreading their music all across the continents. They delivered best-selling tracks, such as ‘Headhunterz & Wildstylez Vs. Noisecontrollers – Tonight (Alpha² Remix)’ and ‘Rebirth’ (Official Anthem 2012). And then there’s that label: A² Records! It may be clear that Alpha² still consider themselves to be on a mission and therefore, the hardstyle scene has far from seen it all: the Alpha² have been UNLEASHED!!
Who listens to their first releases, will agree that Arjen and Anco are two of the founders of the rawstyle subgenre. They don’t care about pigeonholing themselves though: they just like it rough! In 2008, the brothers started their own record label, A² Records. The label quickly gained high respect in the hardstyle scene. The album ‘A² Records – Unleashed’ (2011) is a perfect reflection of the label’s unique spirit and sound. A sound that’s also being passed on by others that were signed to the label: Gunz for Hire, Ran-D, Adaro, Digital Punk, E-Force and Artic.
The Alpha2 will bring you the rough stuff at the Hardstyle Stage at Dance Valley Festival 2015!
Around 2000 Richard the Mildt’s career as a DJ developed at an accelerated rate, which has lead to the fact that this uncrowned king of hardstyle is now to be rated among the most popular dj’s in the Netherlands. In 2003 Luna came fourth in the Top 100 of best dj’s in the world during the Dutch Dance Awards, overtaking big shots like Carl Cox, Dave Clarke and Sven Väth. A year later he even moved to the second place. This shows that Richard made the most of his talents and reached the top in no time. “It was quite bizarre to end second in the list behind Tiësto and the ultimate prove that I was on the right track.
Pavo and Luna will kick of the Hard Valley with some tracks from the good old days at the Hardstyle Mainstage at Dance Valley Festival 2015! Make sure you check out the rest of the line-up too, which includes artists like Fedde Le Grand, Blasterjaxx and Oliver$.
