Hardstyle Mafia is definitely not a new name in the scene. The project was founded in 2005 by two Finnish brothers; Jesse & Markus Jokinen. Earlier they had been producing Trance/Hard Trance, but decided to move towards Hardstyle rather quickly. After a few years Markus decided to leave the project and now their long time friend, Kimi Niinimäki (aka Reptyler), joined in his place.
Jesse & Kimi started releasing on Bazz Implant Recordings in 2007 and immediately made a mark with releases such as: the collab with Alphaverb “Takin’ Over” & “Rockin’ Da Place”. After that they also released on Explosive Recordings and Knockout Beats Recordings, before signing to Spoontech Records in 2011.
On the new label they really thrived and released tracks such as: “Raw Resistance”, “Tick Tock” & “Total Stranger”. Soon after they found a vocalist which many may connect to the Scandinavians atmospheric and euphoric sound; Yuna-X. Together they have released some of the most popular tracks from the duo: “Follow Me”, “Sound of Victory” & “Angel Spells” (w/ Infirium).
The duo has performed at events like: Defqon.1, We Are Hardstyle, Decibel Outdoor Festival, Loudness, Ground Zero Festival, & Rebirth Festival.
