Up until 2014, Headhunterz was dominating the stages with his hardstyle tracks which granted him the infamous title of the King of Hardstyle. Much to his audience’s surprise, the Dutch producer tiptoed out of his roots and began exploring many more genres of electronic dance music; eventually escaping his signature sound entirely. Now, three years later, Headhunterz astounds his dedicated followers with his lengthy and heartfelt letter stating that he will be taking the plunge back into his hardstyle origins we all know and love.
The incredible EDM veteran took to Facebook to elaborate on his emotional journey as he swayed from his true musical love: Hardstyle.
After all, the ‘Power of the Mind’ will always help you find your way. You can read Headhunterz’ full statement below:
“When I appeared before you at DefQon.1 2016, I literally broke down. My world fell apart and I saw the bigger picture. Suddenly feeling so tired of going against the stream of my true nature, all the pieces of my puzzle fell together. I had left home only to set out on a journey back to where I started. But now I have been given the answers I was looking for. I did not fall in love with hardstyle just because I grew up with it. It was love at first sight with hardstyle and myself! I fell in love because it was the only music in the world that connected with every part of me that made me human. Raw emotion and energy, uncontaminated and right underneath the surface of our rapidly moving society that consumes everything in its path. It has united people like nothing I have ever seen in my life and it has made even the toughest men shed tears at times, like it did at that moment in time.”
We and so many others absolutely welcome Headhunterz’ return to his roots, and cannot wait to see what he has in store.
