One of the seminal forces in Dutch hardcore techno, DJ Isaac has played his scorching hard-trance/hardstyle around the world. In 1999, his first club-trance remix of Hani's 'Baby Wants To Ride' became a top ten hit in Europe, followed up with remixes of Scoop, C.R.W. (Mauro Picotto), Cosmic Gate, Brooklyn Bounce and Safri Duo. Together with one of the top Dutch DJ/producer duos, Pronti & Kalmani, he started the hard house project, P.I.K. which hurtled to the top of the Dutch dance charts for weeks. Together with producer Michiel van der Kuy, he contributed four tracks to the Alice Deejay album called 'Who Needs Guitars Anyway?' which has achieved gold and platinum status in numerous countries worldwide. Most importantly, with hit records such as 'On the Edge' and 'Go Insane', DJ Isaac has forged his own deliciously twisted style. More info: www.djisaac.com
