Kronos and Adaro are two of huge names in the hardstyle scene, known for their incredible solo productions as well as their powerful collaborations. In the past few years alone, they have released an impressive array of collabs including "Ghost Town," "Up 2 No Good," "Kings Of The Beat," "Moonlight", the Uptempo edit of “Moonlight”, "Blackout," “The Sound Of Silence” with Ran-D, which was a free release, and "The Life." Fans eagerly await each new release, and their 9th collab, "Stop the Party," is no exception. As these two masters of the genre come together once again to create another explosive track, we sat down with them to discuss their previous collaborations and what fans can expect from their latest project.

- How did you first meet and what inspired you to start collaborating on music together?
J: We got in contact for the first time back in 2012. I just made “Satana” with Activator. Thijs contacted me for having the track, because he really liked it. That track actually became popular mainly because of him. Since then, we have always stayed in touch. We met for the first time at Thrillogy 2012, which was also my first party in NL ever. We still have a pic together from that night.
T: Yes, I was really impressed by Satana by him and Activator. A follower on social media sent me a private message, check out Satana, it’s out already for some weeks and super cool but it’s not picked up by the raw DJs. So I checked it out, and was like “Woww, why is this not a wellknown track? This is an instant classic”. I sent Jacopo a message and started playing it every set. The word-of-mouth effect started on this track and every raw dj who heard it started supporting the track and it is now chosen as one of the best rawstyle tracks ever.
