This Saturday, (August 23rd) a very special event will take place at the festival-famous NOS events center in Los Angeles County. Insomniac’s hard-dance company, basscon, has teamed up with the number one hardstyle DJ Headhunterz to throw yet another homegrown event exclusively with DJs of the harder styles. With all the recent growth of hardstyle in the US, European companies like Q-dance and even Hardcore Till I Die (HTID) have taken interest in throwing standalone events in the States and namely in the heart of the scene, Los Angeles. However, Insomniac events has the home-court advantage on this one so we are looking forward to some friendly competition creating a unique and thrilling experience for the fans.
As a pioneer in the scene and a visionary of music at 150 beats per minute, Headhunterz has expanded his music career to not only DJing and producing, but also to creating a record label and a free monthly podcast (available on iTunes, Spotify, and YouTube) for the last three years under the name “Hard with Style.” The lineup for Hard with Style includes artists from the Hard with Style record label and other hardstyle figureheads such as Wildstylez, Adrenalize, and Kayzo, most of whom have played the basscon stage at EDC Las Vegas. All this synergy and Basscon’s new partnership with Headhunterz should result in an exciting event. Whether you’re an avid fan of hardstyle or you’re just getting started, this is a party you’re not going to want to miss.
