One half of mask-loving hardstyle alliance Gunz For Hire, Adaro goes deep and dark in his solo sets – a perfect match for the harder-edged sound of the Blue Stage at Defqon.1, which takes over Sydney International Regatta Centre on Saturday September 14. We pulled the Dutch DJ aside for a chat about switching from trance to hardstyle and raving with his dad.
This year at Defqon.1 in The Netherlands you had the opportunity to play on the Red stage and deliver probably one of the hardest hardstyle sets played on that stage in years. What was that experience like for you?
Yes, I didn’t put the brakes on it, that’s for sure! It was an unforgettable experience, both the Saturday set as Adaro and the Sunday closing set with Gunz For Hire. The reaction of the audience was overwhelming! Also I got lots and lots of messages after the gig, a lot of those from people who discovered my sound there, it was really nice to hear!
