REKALL, better known as Johan, has been producing for over 15 years and had another alias under the name D’Stylerz. With 15 years of experience, you can say Johan knows perfectly how to compose a track. You can hear that back in his first release on Prospexx. ‘You & Me’ is the perfect example of a well-composed track! Melody and drive are in great harmony together and we are delighted to have him on the label! Let’s get to know Johan a little bit better with this interview.
Back in 2002 Johan got in touch with hardstyle. At the Midtown store in Rotterdam, he bought his first tracks and started practicing DJ’ing. Not long after practicing he downloaded Frooty Loops and started to live like a monk in the studio. He was really eager to make his own tracks. And now, after 20 years, he is still producing and making the best out of his productions.
It isn’t a coincidence that he started listening to hardstyle in 2002. As you might know, Scantraxx also was born that year. He loved the Scantraxx sound! ‘Names like The Prophet, Showtek, and Technoboy have really inspired me to produce music myself. The quality of hardstyle is so high nowadays that it’s difficult not to get inspired by all the cool tracks that are released today!’ Johan says.
