    10 reasons why you should visit Shockerz 2017

    16 December marks the date for a new edition of Shockerz. This new edition is all about Conflict Override, a mysterious theme which involves an even more mysterious enemy who tries to attack Project F.E.A.R, which is the name for all the performing artists and visitors. Because the event was sold-out 1,5 months (!) before the event took place, we went looking for 10 reasons why you shouldn’t miss this year’s edition.

    1. Free War Force album for every visitor
    Yes, you’ve read that right. Every visitor of Shockerz 2017 will receive the new War Force hard-copy album for FREE, which will be released and handed out at the event. Good news for all their fans, because they have been waiting for the tracks to be released. Recently the act revealed their performance at Shockerz 2017 and also that every visitor would receive the album for free. A big gift and surely something to get people up on their feet and marching to Den Bosch (near Eindhoven) on December 16.

    ..
    2. Raw classics during the Origins showcase
    Shockerz will also present a brand-new act. Origins, as the show is called, is 30 minutes of the best selection of raw hardstyle ‘classics’. Think of tracks like ‘B-Front & Frontliner – Magic’‘The R3bels – Pattern 2’ en ‘Chris One – Psycho’. Standing still is not an option and nostalgia is what it’s all about. The show will be the premiere of a new stand-alone event, also called Origins, which will take place on February 24.

    ..
    3. Sold out editions
    The title is this part kind off says it all. Shockerz has sold out in the past two years. Last year all tickets were even sold out at 1,5 months before the event took place. On the popular website TicketSwap more than 1500 people were still looking for tickets on the day of the event. So consider yourself warned and make sure to grab your tickets in time.

    Tickets are available through the official website.

    Travel (bus) to Shockerz 2017:
    Festimove.com (French)
    Akkros.com (French)
    Feierreisen.de (German)
    Hardtours.de (German)

    4. Many b2b performances
    Besides a big number of live-acts, there will also be a lot of surprising b2b performances at Shockerz 2017. A b2b is a collaboration on-stage, meaning that two or more artists will perform together on-stage. There is Radical Redemption vs Regain, E-Force vs Rebelion and Ncrypta vs Luminite. More b2b’s will soon be announced.

    ..
    5. Seven special live-acts
    During Shockerz 2017 there will be seven live-acts. Several of them have been revealed through their own trailer, like Minus Militia and War Force. Besides that Act of Rage will bring a special Sabotage album showcase, D-Sturb and Sub Sonik will perform live and MYST will be showcasing an exclusive live-act for the first time ever. More information about that will be revealed in an interview with him soon. Last but not least, B-Front will deliver his magic with Beyond Reality.

    6. New and bigger location
    Shockerz has moved to a bigger location. With two previous sold out editions the organization felt it was time to step it up, so this year Shockerz will take place in Autotron in Den Bosch. Autotron is an enormous event location, which surely will crank up the capacity this year. In comparison, area 2 of Autotron is the same size as area 1 of Shockerz last year. People who have visited Shockerz in the past will know that this means big things are coming.

    ..
    7. D-Sturb is responsible for the anthem
    The person responsible for this year’s Shockerz anthem is D-Sturb. This became clear after a mysterious live video on his Facebook page. The young artist is sky-rocketing at the moment and will bring a special live-act on December 16.

    8. MYST live for the first time ever
    Yes, for the first time ever MYST will deliver an exclusive live-act. He has been preparing for months and soon Hard News will present an interview with him, telling us more about what he has planned. MYST is crushing stages at the moment, with tracks like ‘Before You Go’‘Hear My Breath’ and ‘Never Look Back’ which have gotten tremendous support from both the fans and artists.

    9. Act of Rage ‘Sabotage’ album release
    Besides the War Force album, Act of Rage will also release his album at Shockerz 2017. That means visitors can also be the first to grab his album, at Shockerz.

    10. Massive line-up
    The line-up of Shockerz 2017 is filled with the biggest names and talented acts. To clarify, there will be artists from 13 different labels performing at Shockerz. Talking about diversity.

    THE FEARLESS
    Minus Militia – War Force (including Free Album) – B-Front Beyond Reality – Radical Redemption – Frequencerz – Warface – Fear the Public Enemies – Shockerz presents Origins – E-Force – Crypsis – D-Sturb LIVE – Sub Sonik LIVE – Regain – Delete – Requiem – High Voltage – Rebelion – Act of Rage LIVE – Bass Chaserz – MYST LIVE – RVAGE – Artifact – Killshot – MC Nolz

      There's nothing simple about Dashiki's colourful new effort "Forget You"

      Dashiki is an unusual artistic movement that mixes a blend European and African cultures with music, visuals and people. After the success of their first single, Forget You, Dashiki has released an equally vibrant visual accompaniment. 
      Dashiki is the anagram of the three members in the collective… David, Shif and Kimbo. Aptly, Dashiki also refers to a traditional type African dress. Staying true to their roots, this mixture of African and European cultures is at the core of this project. 
      Dashiki is a collective where singers, dancers, designers and video makers, of both European and African origins, collaborate with the DJ producer who masterminded the whole idea. Their energy has been well directed to create Forget You, in 2017, and now their equally exhilarating video.
      Brought to life by the Dashiki movement, this video is an uplifting exploration that doesn’t shy away from a very relatable situation. Sewn together by three creative forces, the video is underpinned heavily by each of their skills, backgrounds and individual stories. This track has an eclectic and erratic slant, but in some way, has the sense of utter certainty that youth holds. Deleting his ex-girl in a video game like twist, no one can’t decide whether this is a good or bad move. Passionate and powerful, this loudly asks us whether forgetting is better than heartbreak? Either way, we can’t wait for more celebrations of life from the skilled musicians that have brought us Dashiki.

      Transcript:
      Wormie and Lulu: We're here to review I need you by Jroll, Vovii, and Wknd Warrior, coming out on Central Station Records tomorrow (Fri 23rd Feb) LuLu: I've been listening to it and god, its a great track Wormie: Yeah I thorougly enjoyed it MJ: I really loved it, the beat and everything, and i loved how the second drop wasn't the same as the first drop. I know its something that many many of my friends would totally vibe to W: Its starts off with the bass, thats what got me hooked M: I loved the melody as well, the only thing that would amp that up more would be a female voice, not all throughout the song, just every now and then, but its still.... i loved it L: Yeah, the intro and outtro, its puts the song in such a different perspective, you don't expect it to drop into that heavy ass bass M: Yeah but even the drop itself, i didn't expect that, i was expecting it to be a harder drop than that, but it was still brilliant the way it all just worked together W: I personally think its an easy song to freestyle to L: Definitely M: Yeah definitely W: I was busting away to it throughout the song. Its going to be a dope song L: Freestylers are going to love it! W: Its smooth and easy listening, thats the best part about it from the start to the finish. The only thing I can really fault about the whole song is the outtro goes a bit too long, but thats all L: Yeah but it does cut the track too M: The good thing about that is, you can bust out solo's to it or its good to just listen to also just how it is, its versatile like that and thats a great sign of a great track L: I can 100% hear this on the radio in the future W: I could see me dancing to it in a nightclub after a few beverages too (all laugh) W: JRoll, Vovii, and Wknd Warrior, you have outdone yourselves with this one L: I give this one a 10 out of 10 W: Yeah, it gets a 10 out of 10 from me too M: 10 out of 10 from me too
