In 1984 DJ The Prophet started with producing hip hop, with his first big event named "Let The Prophet Rise" in 1988 with a crowd of 2000 people. In 1990 he started producing hardcore/gabber as one of the pioneers, being part of the Thunderdome generation and the first DJ team in the world; "The Dreamteam". He had great successes with tracks like "Dominatin" in 1993, "Big Boys Dont Cry" and "Allright Now Here We Go!!!" in 1994 and many more.
After a decade of hardcore, DJ The Prophet was searching for something new. He played a hard house set in 1999 on the Q-dance event "Houseqlassics" which surprised everybody. He found what he was looking for, so again as one of the pioneers of the genre, nowadays called hardstyle, DJ The Prophet started producing the first known hardstyle tracks such as "Wreck Thiz Place" as Hardheadz together with DJ Pavo. In this period of his career he performed at every Q-dance event. Being the spiritual father of Scantraxx Recordz and top-tier acts such as Headhunterz, Wildstylez, Frontliner and Brennan Heart, he made name as the true godfather of hardstyle. Characteristic releases of this era are "Recession", "Shizzle My Dizzle", "Wake Up!", "One Moment" and "Stampuhh!!".
With a strong antiquity, DJ The Prophet continued his legacy by also shaping hardstyle's modern era with his diverse releases. From the smashing "Kikkdrum" to "Timemachine" and – of course – the floorfiller "Caramba!", DJ The Prophet is known for capturing all the potential of hardstyle.
On-stage, the "godfather" controls the decks like you've never seen before. He's mesmerised crowds of thousands at Defqon.1, EDC Las Vegas, Defqon.1 Australia, Qlimax, Decibel and at his legendary "30 Years The Prophet" celebration held in 2016. One thing is for sure: DJ The Prophet is still an important part of the hard dance scene with a lot of great plans for the future.
