Headhunterz Ditches Big Room for Melodic Future Bass With "Landslide" [LISTEN]
Headhunterz makes use of his creative freedom with his newest release, “Landslide”. The Dutch DJ has come a long way since his extreme hardstyle tracks like “Dragonborn” and “Power of the Mind” by continuously evolving his sound with the times.
"Landslide" demonstrates the producer's new direction into softer melodies with this emotional future bass banger. This track has beautiful vocal chords that stand out in a genre drowned out by female vocalists . It's a breath of fresh air to see this lesser known soft side this usually intense Dutch DJ. Will this be a permanent style change for Headhunterz, or was this just an experiential track? Guess we’ll have to wait and find out.
Willem Rebergen, better known by his stage name Headhunterz, started his electronic music career all the way back in 2004 under the alias Nasty D-Tunes, a duo project between him and a friend, Bobby van Putten. The duo entered into the 2004 Defqon 1 DJ contest and ended up earning a spot on the lineup. These two had a successful career at Nasty D-Tunes, having their music played by all of the major Hardstyle DJs. After being signed to Scantraxx Special in 2005, the name Headhunterz was born with the release of “Aiming for Your Brain/Left Some Answers”. After a hard decision to pursue his dreams at the Rock Academy, Bobby decided to leave Headhunterz to William and he has been performing solo for the past decade. Since that day, William has traveled the world to some of the craziest festivals in the world, playing alongside the best names in EDM including Krewella, Steve Aoki, Hardwell, and many more.
