BTTF PRESENTS: HARDCORE ALL STARS – ANGERFIST

BTTF PRESENTS: HARDCORE ALL STARS
ANGERFIST, BLOODCAGE + MORE TBC
SATURDAY 5TH APRIL 2014
THE ARCHES, GLASGOW
9:30PM-3AM
OVER 18’S

FEATURING: ANGERFIST, BLOODCAGE + MUCH MUCH MORE TBA

BTTF are very proud to present the return of the undisputed King Of Hardcore to The Arches. The one & only ANGERFIST will be back at The Arches on Saturday 5th April 2014 with support from BLOODCAGE (first ever UK show). There’s still plenty more to be announced for this event, trust us when we say it’s going to be a night to remember with BTTF! Early bird tickets only £18 + BF and available at 10AM Saturday 11th January.

Angerfist is the world’s leading hardcore act, underlined by the fact that he received the prestigious 39th spot in DJ Mag’s Top 100 DJ edition of 2011, dropping to 42nd on the following year and rising up again to the 34th place in 2013, being the first hardcore artist ever to hit the chart.

Angerfist was founded in 2001, when he dropped his first EP on Overload Records, the former sublabel of Masters of Hardcore Records. After that EP, he has produced an impressive continuous streak of hit records on Masters of Hardcore. Danny Masseling has produced three albums: “Pissin’ Razorbladez’”, “Mutilate” and “Retaliate” were released in 2006, 2008 and 2011. The albums had a huge impact on the scene and the development of hardcore music wise, especially in the last few years: Angerfist is the only artist to have three consecutive #1 hits on the annual MOH Radio Live Top 100 chart ever. His co-production with Outblast on “The Voice of Mayhem” and solotrack “Incoming” topped the chart in 2010 and 2011. In 2011’s MOH Radio Live Top 100, 34% of the chart was filled with Angerfist’s tracks, and in 2012 the track “Catastrophe” with partner in crime Outblast made it to number 1 again. Next to the Angerfist project, frontman Danny Masseling also produces records under the monikers of Kid Morbid, Bloodcage and Menace II Society.

Besides the music, Angerfist is known for the unique live-performances dressed in hooded sweater and wearing the infamous Jason-mask while performing all over the world. Bringin the grimy beats to every continent, Angerfist is selling out virtually every venue. With an unstoppable drive to spread the hardcore virus, he is destined for a long future of destructive beats.

Three words to describe Angerfist? Retaliate and devastate!

BRENNAN HEART & COONE
VALENTINE’S WEEKEND PARTY
SATURDAY 15TH FEBRUARY 2014

OVER 18’S ONLY

FEATURING: BRENNAN HEART & COONE, HIXXY, BASS GENERATOR, OBSESSION, CHIMERA, MARC LOAGE, NRK.

BTTF are proud to present a night celebrating 2 HARDSTYLE SUPERHEROES. Ladies & Gentlemen, Valentine’s weekend 2014 is all about BRENNAN HEART & COONE. They will be taking over The Arches in Glasgow for a night that’s bound to leave your senses reeling with some of the best tracks around to really make you stomp your feet. Early Bird tickets are only £16 + BF and are on sale NOW. We recommend getting involved in the first big hardstyle event of the year!

As a represent of Dutch dance industry, Brennan Heart is one of the leading brands in international hardstyle music. Tracks like ‘Imaginary’ and ‘Lose my Mind’ contain his remarkable signature: harmonious melodies, catchy vocal lines and an impeccable production. ‘Lose my Mind’ is an instant hit on YouTube with over 12 million views, which is an outstanding number for a hardstyle track. In 2013, Brennan Heart released a 50-minutes documentary ‘Evolution of Style – a journey with Brennan Heart’, the first longplay documentary on this epic genre. It confirmed his status as a top-50 DJ in the DJ Mag top 100, as well as his leading status in hardstyle music.

From a young age, Coone has been mesmerized by music in all its different shapes and forms.
The creation of his successful label Dirty Workz was a huge step in this young man’s carreer, allowing him to take his music beyond even his own expectations and also giving new talents within the Hard Dance scene a respectable platform to launch new and exciting sounds into the scene. Currently sitting at number 45 in the DJ Mag Top 100 2013 poll, he has taken the world by storm. He will be showcasing his new album ‘Global Dedication’ (as an exclusive hard style artist signed to Dim Mak records) at this event in February.

>ATMOZFEARS (nl – UK Exclusive)<

Atmozfears, Also known as Tim van de Stadt, is a Dutch hardstyle artist pushing boundaries with his emotive and energetic sound. From what originally started as a trio in 2008, Atmozfears has grown to become a huge name in dance music with Tim at the helm sporting his innovative approach to music.

Support for Atmozfears has been flying in from all angles since Scantraxx signed the exciting hardstyle act back in 2012. The biggest names in the genre regularly play his tracks in their sets, including Headhunterz with his Hard With Style podcast. In the past 12 months Atmozfears has reached incredible performance milestones. Defqon.1 Festival, Intents Festival and Knock Out are just a few of the parties conquered so far, but who could forget the astounding appearances in Amsterdam’s Ziggo Dome and Heineken Music Hall.

Tim is known for spending almost every waking hour of his day in the studio or on stage. His level of dedication to music isn’t something you can learn or forget. It’s a true passion to spread enjoyment and a sense of togetherness. Atmozfears is ready for the future, and will continue working non-stop to take this scene to the next level!

>KUTSKI<

It’s very rare in this day and age to find new pioneers who work hard day in day out to constantly push the boundaries of harder music. The new savior of rave and master of the harder styles, Kutski aptly fits this title and is without a doubt the most exciting crossover talent to emerge from the UK in the past decade!
With his infamous technical ability and incredible musical versatility it’s not difficult to see why he has earned the tag ‘The People’s Favorite’, voted the UK’s No.1 Hard Dance DJ in the DJ Mag Top 100 DJs poll and scooping up awards for ‘Best UK Hard DJ’ for 3 years running in the Hard Dance Awards as well as best Hard Dance DJ and podcast/radio show in the Hardcore Heaven Awards!
His ‘Keeping The Rave Alive’ podcast and radio show has become one of the leading forces in the harder styles, which has grown to become the UK’s leading hard-edged brand. Kutski is also the ambassador of all things hard for BBC Radio One representing the station to cover the harder styles for over 10 years now!
This unique diversity and musical knowledge prompted DJ Magazine to approach Kutski to become their newest column writer for the harder styles! Kutski has also been working alongside the world’s giants Pioneer in product development where he joins the dance music elite alongside Chuckie, James Zabiela & Carl Cox.
Kutski’s incredible diversity and huge demand has seen him play at every major festival worth their salt worldwide including Tomorrowland, Creamfields, Defqon 1, Electric Daisy Carnival, Dominator, The Qontinent, Dance Valley, Global Gathering, Electrocity, Planet Love & Coloursfest. Internationally Kutski continues to dominate new territory in emerging markets like North America & Asia as well as building stronger fan bases year by year touring Australia, USA, Canada, Japan,South Africa, Malaysia, Indonesia, Sweden, Poland, Austria, The Netherlands & Germany!
2012 saw the launch of Kutski’s ‘Keeping The Rave Alive’ brand set up to represent 360 degrees of the harder styles. Kick starting as a weekly podcast it has quickly gained momentum now exceeding 30,000 downloads per week and regularly charting in the Top 10 downloads on iTunes alongside the likes of Armin van Buuren, Annie Mac & Tiesto. With the hype around the KTRA podcast reaching epic levels, world renowned leader of the harder styles Q Dance asked Kutski to come onboard to broadcast weekly on the Q-Dance radio network as well as drafting him in for radio specials co-presenting with hardstyle scene leaders such as Headhunterz & Wildstylez!

Kutski is now officially known as the voice of Q Dance radio being drafted into host the most popular radio station of the harder styles between his headline sets at their festivals as well as at key one off specials planned! This co-operation will continue and develop even stronger into 2014.

Keeping The Rave Alive or KTRA for short has branched out in 2013 hosting their own sell out events and hosting arenas across the U.K representing a true cross spectrum of the harder styles from the tougher end of house right up to European hardcore sounds with guests booked to date including Technoboy, Anime, Dr Rude, Gammer, Alex Kidd and the Organ Donors!

The KTRA brand has also inspired an album series only into its second volume its already the UK’s highest selling hard dance album featuring on the front page of I-tunes worldwide and still pressing and selling physical units to devoted fans worldwide!

Not content with all of the above Kutski has also been setting his sights on production over the past few years. 2012 saw him team up with long time friend and studio partner Audiofreq for a collaboration on Dutch label Scantraxx, ‘Forgiven’ topped download charts worldwide including hardstyle.com! Kutski also collaborated with Italian hardstyle pioneers TNT for the smash hit ‘Sucksess’ on the Titanic label.

2013 saw this taken to the next level with two single releases signed to Belgium powerhouse Dirty Workz ‘Outlaw’ and ‘Vermin‘ as well as being asked to do the very first official hardstyle remix for Dutch house label Mixmash records of D.O.D’s Bananas which hit the number one spot on the beatport hard dance chart! His tracks and remixes have picked up big support on the hardstyle scene with the likes of Headhunterz, D Block & S Te Fan, Isaac, Technoboy, Coone and many more supporting his productions!

Expect much more from Kutski in 2014, be prepared to be amazed and you wont be far wrong.
