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
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. It became inevitable that they
would be noticed by superstars such as Hardwell, David Guetta,
Afrojack, Calvin Harris, Nicky Romero, Knife Party, Chuckie, Bingo
Players, Diplo, Fedde Le Grand, Laidback Luke, Tiësto, Sander Van
Doorn, Martin Garrix and Steve Aoki.
Mightyfools became a brand new name to keep an eye on.
Signed by the biggest dance label in the world, Spinnin’ Records,
and 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, 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, even 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 was the start of a new Mightyfools era.
2013 saw the release of the anthem ‘Footrocker’ on Revealed Recordings. Hardwell 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, it reached an amazing #3 spot in the Beatport main chart and stayed there for multiple weeks. Many declared it to be the biggest track of the year.
Shortly 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 in the charts 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, a solid place in David Guetta's DJ sets and one of Calvin Harris' personal festival favorites, Mightyfools couldn't have asked for a better ending of the year.
2014 started with club hits ‘Pullover’ (featuring dance music legend Niels Van Gogh) and ‘Lick Dat’ (a collab with superstar DJ group Yellow Claw). Another highlight was Calvin Harris reaching out to Mightyfools to release a single on his own label, Fly Eye Records, which resulted in the release of ‘Shaolin’. The track went straight into the Beatport charts and became an essential part in the mixes of all A-list DJ's. This resulted in ‘Shoalin’ becoming one of the most played tracks of the year!
Promoters and festival organizers praise Mightyfools for their catchy sound and energetic stage performance. Their impressive tour schedule includes playing at some of the most wanted international festivals and venues such as Tomorrowland, Creamfields, Mysteryland Chile/USA/NL main stages, World DJ Festival South Korea main stage, Ushuaia Ibiza, Hard Rock Las Vegas, Avalon Hollywood, Webster Hall NYC, Heineken Music Hall Amsterdam, Pacha Sydney, Skygarden Bali, Cubic Club Macau and many more.
