Fabian Bohn, who is better known as Brennan Heart is easily one of the most recognizable names in hardstyle. The project initially began as duo called Brennan and Heart in 2002 and included DJ Thera, but eventually they split in 2005. Fabian then ran the project as a solo artist and soon established his own label under Scantraxx, M!D!FY. Since then he has recorded the official anthems of Defqon. 1, Intents Festival, Qlimax and a handful of others. His style is hard-hitting and very recognizable, especially because of his use of catchy vocals. 2013 and 14 saw the release of two tracks that have become anthems for hardstyle lovers worldwide: “F.I.F.O” and “Imaginary,” the latter of which was voted as the number 1 hardstyle track of 2013 by Q-dance fans. In honor of his talent and lofty status in the community, Q-dance hosted an event dedicated to him that also featured numerous supporting acts. Mysteryland USA is very lucky to have him on the lineup this year, here’s what he had to say right before he departed for the festival this weekend.
Voices from the Undrgrnd:
UGS: What are you looking forward to the most about playing in Woodstock?
It’s holy ground with a great history. Jimi Hendrix played there, and back home I have a big picture of him in my living room; he’s a true legend and music pioneer.
What are your expectations for this show?
I’ll probably will have goose bumps all over my body, when climbing the stage. Many fans have send me messages about this show and they’ve been looking forward to it for weeks and months, so I consider it will be a massive show.
What captivates you about the harder styles of dance music?
Within the sound, it’s all about energy and melody. Looking at the fans and followers, there’s unity and dedication. A great combination!
What is the most rewarding thing about being a DJ/producer?
Obviously it’s great to play in front of huge crowds, but the most special moments are the individual messages about the power of music; fans that sent me messages about the way that music has given them strength and the power to persue, or the way my music changed their lives.
Here’s a fun question: which Alice in Wonderland character would you be?
is there a chameleon-character in this fairtytale?
Be sure to catch his set at The Sound of Q-dance stage TOMORROW, Saturday May 24th at 5:30pm!
