Lars always loved music, it started at a very young age. When Lars turned 14 he was already active in the local clubs as a DJ playing records from Hip House to House (period 1988-1993).
At the age of 17 he started to work at Mid-town Records, one of the first record stores focused on house music in Rotterdam. Lars developed a taste for the harder styles of house music, and he turned to hardcore in this period. Hardcore was a fast growing style of music, and when the first big raves where given Lars was often part of the line-up.
Together with his friends Paul Elstak, Panic (Dennis Copier) and Darrien Kelly and the Forze MC Irvin they started 'The Forze DJ Team' in the early 90's. This DJ team would turn out to be one of the most popular in the '90's.
When they weren't traveling or playing elsewhere in the country, Lars was resident of the club "Demi Sec" in Spijkenisse. Lars was also a regular guest at Parkzicht in Rotterdam, the place where it all started, according to many people.
In 1996 Lars decided to leave the hardcore scene, DJ Paul turned to more commercial hardcore music and that was not Lars his style. Lars also did not like the Hardcore scene anymore because of the increasing drugs abuse. He took it easy for a little while, but after a period Lars started to put his energy in a hard house (and later hardstyle) sound.
He became resident in Club Heat in Rotterdam, where he played House Classics in combination with new, fresh hardhouse tracks and this combination was highly appreciated by the audience. With this formula he was regularly invited to parties all over Holland. In this period he started to use a new DJ name: Lars Tindy.
