The Melodyman, better known as Frontliner, is thoroughly ingrained in the hardstyle sound. He is a producer at heart who uses his stage to fuse with his crowds worldwide. Led by his euphoric melodic sound, this ‘one of the guys’ DJ doesn’t shy from some fierce bass lines and legendary drops.
In the studio, he constantly boosts his musical skills, leading to over 100 exceptional releases. Frontliner spends a good part of his career fearlessly sharing knowledge through his live streams, where aspiring producers can learn how to create their own kicks and discover their own sounds to kick off their career in hardstyle. His live streams are also the place where people fall in love with his legendary ‘TBA’s, conceptual work that beseeches release by his fans.
In 2015 Frontliner took on the responsibility of making hardstyle widely accessible with the release of his sample pack. Without spending years developing the iconic sound of the ‘kicks’, artists could now use the sound as creatively as they wish. This made Frontliner’s kicks reach all the way to every imaginable genre, with Hardwell’s discography as the cherry on top.
With several remixes for Armin van Buuren, Major Lazer, Showtek, and artists alike, and anthems for Defqon and Q-Base, his musical qualities prove his impeccable value to the scene.
From his love for the harder side of hardstyle, his Raw Style act “Alter Ego” rose in 2022. Alter Ego gives life to Frontliner's take on the darker sounds in hardstyle with screeching kicks but with Frontliner's characteristic sound.
