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, Mightyfools was born in 2008, their very first tracks topping the Beatport charts, it was inevitable that they would be noticed by superstars like Hardwell, David Guetta, Afrojack, Nicky Romero, Knife Party, Chuckie, Bingo Players, Diplo, Fedde Le Grand, Laidback Luke, Tiësto, Sander Van Doorn and Steve Aoki 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 American rock band ‘Fall-Out Boy’, Owl City’s hit song ‘Fireflies’, 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 were played on the biggest radio stations worldwide, featured on MTV and used by Comedy Central for several big commercials. Their collaboration with Jordy Dazz, ‘Drum Fail’, released on Bingo Players’ Hysteria Records in 2012 gained worldwide support. This unique track made such an impact that it is still being played by many top DJs worldwide.
In 2013, after having Hardwell himself doing the premiere at the most important dance event worldwide ‘Ultra Music Festival Miami’, Mightyfools released ‘Footrocker’ on Revealed Recordings and became the most sought after track of the moment and entered the International Buzzchart on #1. It reached an amazing #3 spot in the Beatport main chart, where it stayed for weeks. Many declared it to be the biggest track of the year.
Masterminds in the studio, 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 stage performance during gigs.
