Zany is rightly known as a veteran of the dance scene, with over ten years of experience at the turntables.
Raoul van Grinsven, who lives a stone's throw from Eindhoven, the city of lights, is currently a fulltime DJ/producer, after having worked on the side for ten years in a record shop.
He started his career in the hardcore world, working between times with techno and trance, and has had many hits in the top 10, under various aliases. For the last few years, he has been concentrating on hardstyle.
The former member of Shadowlands Terrorists has been producing for the Fusion label for many years, under a variety of pseudonyms.
“The ambience of the hardstyle scene is great, with enthusiastic and varied audiences. Hardstyle is a broad movement which I get a lot out of. However, I'm not afraid of incorporating techno, hardtrance and oldschool into my sets. The audience appreciates it if a DJ plays a variety of styles, rather than just hammering away in the same tone.”
