Gota give it to Zany. A king in the hardstyle sounds. All his releases are pounding sensation of hard dance music, A great producer and DJ. His best has to be Volt, legendary sounds going back a few years, but today still has the umph.

Zany was originally involved with hardcore techno and trance, although his most notable sound which came later is that of hardstyle. With many productions under his belt on the fusion record label as well as back 2 back releases with the likes of pavo (shutter speed/big fat bass, here we go/porn) and being a member of the donkey rollers, Zanys productions really are, for me at least, the bread and butter of hardstyle djs and fans everywhere.
