Headhunterz, once synonymous with hardstyle, had fans scratching their heads for a few years. The Dutch producer was known as the king of hardstyle up until 2014, when he not only started exploring other genres of electronic music, but essentially departed from his championed sound completely. Nearly three years later, in an open letter to fans about his journey navigating the electronic music world, a veteran Headhunterz has declared he is finally returning to his hardstyle roots to roaring fanfare from supporters.Headhunterz wrote a lengthy Facebook post to fans detailing his artistic journey, driving the message with a momentous hardstyle set to at Defqon 1 this past weekend. A statement from his post read,“When I appeared before you at DefQon.1 2016, I literally broke down. My world fell apart and I saw the bigger picture. Suddenly feeling so tired of going against the stream of my true nature, all the pieces of my puzzle fell together. I had left home only to set out on a journey back to where I started. But now I have been given the answers I was looking for. I did not fall in love with hardstyle just because I grew up with it. It was love at first sight with hardstyle and myself! I fell in love because it was the only music in the world that connected with every part of me that made me human. Raw emotion and energy, uncontaminated and right underneath the surface of our rapidly moving society that consumes everything in its path. It has united people like nothing I have ever seen in my life and it has made even the toughest men shed tears at times, like it did at that moment in time.”Read the full post here: Read More:Watch the magnificent endshow for Defqon.1
