To start the warm-up to Rebirth Festival 2013, we’ll be taking the opportunity to talk to a few artists performing at this upcoming edition. Alongside an interview, these artists will also be doing a warm-up mix, which you can expect to see uploaded to SoundCloud a few days after we upload each interview. It’s time to start looking forward to the 27th of April!
Hi Joost! How’s it going?
I’m doing very well, thanks for asking!
So what has been happening in your world over the past few months?
I’ve been very busy with working on new productions for my live act and I’ve been performing at some really cool gigs.
Are you excited about Rebirth Festival? It’s you’re first performance there, so what do you expect from the party and crowd?
I’ve never been to Rebirth Festival before but I’ve always wanted to go after seeing the aftermovies. There always seems to be the most dedicated crowd possible, so I’m excited and really honored to play there!
You’ll be doing alive act for the first time. Are you nervous, excited or has it not hit you that we’re only weeks away? (Apologies if I’ve just dropped an emotional bombshell with that question, haha!)
Haha,I had a nervous breakdown a few weeks ago! Some of my followers already know what I’m talking about… My producing computer wasn’t always too happy with the music I was trying to make, so I had to switch my software to get back on track! Preparations are all going well at the moment, so it’s only the excitement that’s causing me shivers now!
What can we expect from it?
You can define my music as euphoric, so you can expect a euphoric act with a few new tracks, edits, bootlegs and collabs!
How is studio life?Are you working on anything special (apart from the live act) that you can talka bout?
I’m currently working on an official remix for two artists I’ve been a fan of since I started to listen hardstyle! Apart from that I’m always experimenting with sounds and making it all sound bigger and better!
Are you going to be sticking around at the party to see some other artists? If so, who are you looking forward to the most and why?
Ofcourse, I’ll be partying all day long with my friends! I’m looking forward to all sets, but especially to the set from Atmozfears, I really love their productions at the moment. I’m really curious about the other sets, it’s going to be banging for sure!
What’s in the pipeline for after Rebirth Festival? Is it going to be a busy summer?
Yes, really busy! Some more awesome gigs have been confirmed already, like Sunrise Festival and Defqon.1! Even more are coming up, so I can’t really say I will be bored this summer!
Right now you’re taking over the hardstyle scene with The Magic Show, how has that experience been and what’s the next step for you guys?
It has all been a rollercoaster ride for me, and it still is. I never expected this all to happen so fast. It really feels like a dream coming true at the moment. We’re planning on doing a lot of new hostings and getting bookings abroad like I’ve already done a few times already. After that it’s the samething we do every night Pinky… Try to take over the world!

Why those tracks?
I’ve been working hard on my own new tracks lately, and they have been giving me a great feeling so far.
Thanks for taking time out of the studio for us! We’re really curious about the live act! Anywords for everyone attending Rebirth Festival on the 27th of April?
Thank you for having me, it was a pleasure! Be sure you don’t miss my first ever liveact, so see you all on the 27th of April!
