“Representing the harder styles in dance music, we got to spread this message to the party people all over the world” is what they proclaimed in the year 2003. And the Alpha² kept their word! For a decade already, these pioneers of the rough and raw sound are spreading their music all across the continents. They delivered best-selling tracks, such as ‘Headhunterz & Wildstylez Vs. Noisecontrollers – Tonight (Alpha² Remix)’ and ‘Rebirth’ (Official Anthem 2012). And then there’s that label: A² Records! It may be clear that Alpha² still consider themselves to be on a mission and therefore, the hardstyle scene has far from seen it all: the Alpha² have been UNLEASHED!!
Who listens to their first releases, will agree that Arjen and Anco are two of the founders of the rawstyle subgenre. They don’t care about pigeonholing themselves though: they just like it rough! In 2008, the brothers started their own record label, A² Records. The label quickly gained high respect in the hardstyle scene. The album ‘A² Records – Unleashed’ (2011) is a perfect reflection of the label’s unique spirit and sound. A sound that’s also being passed on by others that were signed to the label: Gunz for Hire, Ran-D, Adaro, Digital Punk, E-Force and Artic.
