Who are the greatest talents in the scene?

Music is evolving quicker than 30 years ago. Thanks to the newest technologies, it is possible to make countless different sounds. This also counts for the harder styles in the form of Hardstyle and Hardcore that have been evolving since it’s beginning. Nowadays the music is very complex and it takes a lot of skills and expertise to create a track that amazes the crowd. Therefore, it is even more special that producers of a younger age are able to create amazing tracks.

One example of this is the rise of Rejecta last year. Out of nowhere this DJ and producer shocked the scene with his destroying kicks and uplifting melodies. His tracks were played at every event and Rejecta himself became an act worth the mainstage. Now a year later his old tracks such as ‘Followed’ and ‘Deserve to Die’ already became legendary tracks. With these great songs still in mind, this former ‘best Raw talent’ is already making an album which will be released soon.

As you can see, many people voted on what they think is the best upcoming producing talent. Some of these artists are already known for some people and others are unknown to the public. One thing is sure, most of these producers will be playing the bigger stages in the coming years. Keep them in mind!


The opinion of the community on these talents

The number one of the poll is Riot Shift. As some of you may know them, they already proved to be already more than just an upcoming talent. Their sound is now already familiar for many Hardstyle listeners. The same counts for Nino van Buuren who states: ‘Riot Shift is like a weird combination between Rebelion and Delete that will be performing on the bigger stages within a year.’

Thomas Weijers even mentioned a talent that is not listed in the poll. This shows that there are so many talents walking around, but they are still relatively unknown for the public. As you can see in this comment, Thomas mentions The Purge as a talent that is able to create real bangers and to fill the stages where he performs.

Thomas also mentions Vyral, as the most original producer at the moment. When looking at other comments, it is indeed visible that a lot of people agree with this. Tim Setrodimedjo here mentions the producer in a comment saying that he is not anymore an upcoming talent. He is an absolute boss in producing, but he only deserves more public attention.

There are so many upcoming DJ’s / Producers at the moment. Some will break through this year, some within a couple of years. Only one thing is sure, every year completely new and extraordinary music will be made by these talents. Support them as you support the other producers. They also deserve it!
