Last Saturday at ADE, during Scantraxx x Savage Squad: The Hardstyle Showdown, DJ and producer Nightcraft stepped up to the prestigious Scantraxx main label. This move is a significant milestone in his career, and Nightcraft is genuinely excited about the opportunities that lie ahead. “It feels a bit surreal, but I’m really happy about it. I worked really hard for it.”
Nightcraft’s journey with the Scantraxx family began in 2019. He commenced his musical journey with Scantraxx Silver, then transitioned to Scantraxx Carbon, and has currently established himself on the main label. “Scantraxx has been one of the first labels I listened to when I first discovered Hardstyle. To be part of the main label after four years feels surreal.”
Nightcraft: “I would describe my sound as hard but emotional”
His sound has gone through a significant transformation as he has grown as an artist. His signature sound was born when he released “Time,” a track that received outstanding feedback. “I would describe my signature sound as hard but emotional. I love melodies, I always have a melody in my tracks. I also like melancholic breaks and vocals but I also like the contrast in tracks. I like a hard part and then it breaks down into a more emotional, softer part, and then hard again.”
Staying true to his genuine self is a cornerstone of Nightcraft’s identity. He doesn’t want to change his sound too much, he states. “If I change my sound, I will lose what I love to do in my music. Sound and music will always evolve, but I will evolve in my own way.”
October 27 marks the exciting debut of Nightcraft as a Scantraxx main label artist, presenting a collab with Level One. One month later, on November 29, a collab with Unresolved follows. Fans can anticipate his first solo release in January 2024.
