Headhunterz, aka Willem Rebergen, is a Dutch hardstyle DJ/producer formerly known as Nasty D-Tuners. His own label Scantraxx Reloaded, started in 2006, is a sublabel of Scantraxx. At the age of nine, Rebergen sang in a children's choir that recorded several CDs. One year later, he started voice acting, which he still does today. He gained his first major experience as a DJ at Defqon.1 Festival, a huge hardstyle event in the Netherlands, where he was discovered by The Prophet. Since then, Headhunterz has played at every major hardstyle event, including Defqon.1 Festival, Qlimax, Q-Base, In Qontrol, Decibel and many more. He played live at Qlimax in 2006, 2007 (which he produced the Anthem for), 2008, 2009 and 2011. He also produced the anthem for Defqon.1 Festival 2009, "Scrap Attack," and again for Defqon.1 Festival 2010 (Australia), "Save Your Scrap for Victory." He also produced the anthem for Defqon.1 Festival 2012 as a collaboration with Wildstylez and Noisecontrollers. In 2008 he released an album together with Wildstylez, under the alias Project One. This album was very well received in the hardstyle scene, and in turn was followed up with a tour across the Netherlands. In 2010, Headhunterz was ranked at position 36 in DJ Magazine's yearly top 100 DJs list. It was the first year any hardstyle DJ made it into the top 100. Accompanying Headhunterz, hardstyle artists D-Block & S-te-Fan ranked 73rd, Noisecontrollers 90th and Showtek 91st. This made Headhunterz the #1 Hardstyle DJ of 2010. In addition, Headhunterz also performed at his own X-Qlusive event, hosted by Q-Dance in the Heinekin Music Hall. Headhunterz also began the "Hard With Style" podcasts in 2011, released monthly through his YouTube channel. Popular releases by Headhunterz are “Rock Civilization,” “Forever Az One” and “End of my Existence.” In 2012, Headhunterz was ranked 11th in DJ Magazine's yearly top 100 DJs list and performed another showcasing event, Hard With Style, at the newly built Ziggo Dome in Amsterdam, also hosted by Q-Dance.
