As an authority of the hardstyle genre, Willem Rebergen, better known by the moniker Headhunterz, is certainly no stranger to the intoxicating energy of deep bass and dissonant synth sounds. The Dutch DJ/producer brings a particular flare to the eclectic world of dance music and remains a prominent figure in the hardstyle scene due to his notable contributions to the genre, namely “Dragonborn”.
When Headhunterz signed with record label Scantraxx in 2005, he began gaining traction and respect from DJs/producers from all genres, leading to performances at practically every major hardstyle festival, including Qlimax, Defqon.1 and Q-Base, as well as conglomerate festivals like Electric Daisy Carnival.
The HARDwithSTYLE podcast, Headhunterz’ biggest project to date, was created as a place to house a playlist of his favorite tracks of the moment, including tracks by a range of established and up-and-coming DJs. HARDwithSTYLE remains one of the most popular dance music dedicated podcasts and the brand has since expanded to include a standalone record label and an entire tour, which debuted in 2014 and featured Headhunterz alongside a lineup of amazing DJ/producers.
Headhunterz’ recent releases, “Live Your Life” with Crystal Lake and his original mix “Once Again,” prove his unwavering presence and seemingly endless production of hard hitting beats. He remains true to his music and the brand that he has established to uplift those whose passion is simply to produce music and art for everyone to enjoy unabashedly.
