About The Prophet

DJ The Prophet, also called the ‘Godfather of Hardstyle’, as he is one of the few acts who has succeeded in maintaining a thriving career from the early days, right up to the modern era. For thirty golden years, DJ The Prophet has achieved personal milestones as he shaped the genre we know today as Hardstyle and cultivated new opportunities for rising artists. In 2019 he presented his new concept 'THIS IS ME' which stands for his musical and creative versatility.

 In 1984 DJ The Prophet started with producing Hip Hop, with his first big event named ‘Let The Prophet Rise’ in 1988 with a crowd of 2000 people. In 1990 he started producing Hardcore as one of the pioneers, being part of the Thunderdome generation and the first DJ team in the world “The Dreamteam”. He had great successes with tracks like “Dominatin” in 1993, “Big Boys Don't Cry” in 1994, “Allright Now Here We Go!” in 1994  and “Killing Scum”, also from the year 1994 and many more after.

After a decade of Hardcore, DJ The Prophet was searching for something new. He played a Hard House set in 1999 on the Q-dance event "Houseqlassics" which surprised everybody. He found what he was looking for, so again as one of the pioneers of the genre, nowadays called Hardstyle, DJ The Prophet started producing the first known Hardstyle tracks with Hardheadz like “Wreck Thiz Place”. In this period of his career he performed at every Q-dance event. Being the spiritual father of Scantraxx Recordz and top-tier acts like Headhunterz, Wildstylez, Frontliner and Brennan Heart, he made name as the true Godfather of Hardstyle. Characteristic releases of this era are "Recession", “Shizzle My Dizzle”, “Wake Up!”, "One Moment" and “Stampuhh!!”.

With a storied history, DJ The Prophet continued his legacy and played a pivotal role in shaping Hardstyle's modern era with his diverse releases. From the explosive "CLTR SHCK" to the emotive "Listen To Your Heart," and, of course, the dancefloor sensation "Lights Out," and TikTok hit "Wanna Play?" DJ The Prophet is celebrated for exploring the full spectrum of Hardstyle possibilities.

Onstage, the 'Godfather' commanded the decks like no other, mesmerizing crowds of thousands at iconic events such as Defqon.1, EDC Las Vegas, Defqon.1 Australia, Qlimax, Decibel, Dreamfields Mexico, and many more. One thing remains certain: DJ The Prophet will forever hold a significant place in the Hard Dance genre.

Forever distinguished as 'the godfather of hardstyle,' Dutch DJ, producer, and Scantraxx founder The Prophet leaves behind an unparalleled legacy that spans over 35 years as he hangs up his headphones for good.

After a final year of unforgettable performances, the grand legend bid a poignant farewell to the scene during an emotional performance on the Defqon.1 2023 mainstage, concluding this chapter with a heart full of warmth and eternal memories. The retirement of this influential hard dance pioneer coincides with the release of one last set of music that truly encapsulates his legacy. The Prophet's ultimate musical testament, 'From The Hard,' comprises a refined collection of his latest collaborations along with remakes of his early greatest hits. This final opus gives fans the ultimate start-to-finish glimpse into his illustrious career.
