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. Adaro headlined Qlimax in 2012 and Ran-D catapulted straight into the DJ Mag Top 100 that same year.
The musical twins shook the grounds of Q-BASE multiple times with their own A² Records bunker and they have much more in mind for the future. The Alpha² message will definitely keep being spread the following decade(s) as well, so keep your ears and eyes open!
