Every once in a while, an act comes along that shakes the foundations of every stage they hit with a style so unique, raw and contagious, that it even influences some of the legends of our scene and creates a completely new movement on dance floors. Meet Mightyfools!
Ever since the brainchild of Dutch DJ/Producers Jelle Keizer and Andy Samin’s Mightyfools was born in 2008, they’ve had tracks topping the Beatport Top 10 charts so it was inevitable that they would be noticed by superstars like Hardwell, David Guetta, Afrojack, Calvin Harris, Nicky Romero, Knife Party, Chuckie, Bingo Players, Diplo, Fedde Le Grand, Laidback Luke, Tiësto, Sander Van Doorn and Steve Aoki just to name a few.
Mightyfools became a brand new name to keep an eye on.
Signed by the biggest dance label in the world Spinnin’ Records, asked to do remixes for acts like mega popstar Britney Spears, American rock band Fall-Out Boy, Owl City, Italian DJ-superstar Benny Benassi, Tommie Sunshine, Dillon Francis, Crookers, Spencer & Hill, De Jeugd van Tegenwoordig and working with top artists such as Pitbull and Fatman Scoop, Mightyfools have quickly developed themselves as hot property within many genres of dance music.
The majority of their tracks are still being played on the biggest radio stations worldwide, featured on MTV and used by Comedy Central for several big commercials.
In 2012 their collaboration with Jordy Dazz, 'Drum Fail', released on Bingo Players' Hysteria Records gained worldwide support. This unique track made such an impact that it is still being played by many top DJs worldwide.
Mightyfools then released their anthem ‘Footrocker’ on Revealed Recordings. Hardwell, the #1 DJ in the world premiered the track at the most important dance event worldwide ‘Ultra Music Festival Miami’. It became the most sought after track of the moment and entered the International Buzzchart straight on #1 and it reached an amazing #3 spot in the Beatport main chart and stayed there for weeks. Many declared it to be the biggest track of the year!
After 'Footrocker' Mightyfools returned with another charter, ‘Put 'Em Up’ on Doorn Records, the homelabel of DJ legend Sander Van Doorn. The track received worldwide support, entered the Beatport Top 100 the first day it was released and stayed there for over 2 months.
To finish 2013, their third charter in a row 'GO!' was released on Afrojack's Wall Records.
A #2 Buzzchart spot, three month Beatport Top 100 position, and one of Calvin Harris' personal festival favorites, Mightyfools couldn't have asked for a better ending of the year.
Masterminds in the studio, these guys are animals on stage.
There are not many DJ acts that have such an impact on dance floors as these two. Promoters and festival organizers praise Mightyfools for their contagious sound and energetic stage performance during gigs. Their impressive tour schedule includes playing at some of the most wanted international festivals such as the Mysteryland 2013 Chile main stage, Creamfields UK, WMC Miami USA, Summadayze Festival AUS, Identity Festival CA, Sensation NL, SXSW USA and quality clubs and events like Hard Rock Las Vegas, Avalon Hollywood, Webster Hall NYC, Club MTV Amsterdam, Social Club Paris, ADE Amsterdam, Heineken Music Hall Amsterdam, Gatecrasher Birmingham, Pacha Sydney, Sonar Barcelona and Woda Mexico City.
