Last Saturday, at Scantraxx x Savage Squad: The Hardstyle Showdown, we announced a monumental milestone in the career of DJ and producer Nightcraft, also known as Roy Stolzenbach. After years of dedication, innovation, and worldwide performances, Nightcraft is stepping up to the prestigious Scantraxx main label.
Nightcraft's ascension to the Scantraxx main label marks a significant moment in his career, and he can't help but feel excited about this next step. Reflecting on this transition, Nightcraft shared, "It feels a bit surreal, but I'm really happy about it. I worked really hard for it."
Nightcraft has been a part of the Scantraxx family since his debut as Nightcraft in 2019. He started his journey on Scantraxx Silver, later moving to Carbon, and has now earned his place on the main label. He further added, "Scantraxx has been one of the first labels I listened to when I first discovered Hardstyle. To be part of the main label after four years feels surreal."
His sound has undergone a remarkable transformation over the years, reflecting his artistic growth. Nightcraft found his signature sound when he released "Time," a track that received exceptional feedback. He described his unique style by saying, "I would describe my signature sound as hard but emotional. I love melodies, I always have a melody in my tracks. I also like melancholic breaks and vocals but I also like the contrast in tracks. I like a hard part and then it breaks down into a more emotional, softer part, and then hard again."
