It all started when John Wijdoogen (12/08/1984) and Sander Kapper (21/12/1975) met each other at a local recordstore. Both crazy about the harderstyles they decided to combine their forces in the studio.With their first release immediately picked up by the heavy weights in the scene it all went really fast.Not many dj’s can say that their first gig was at the prestiges Heineken Music Hall, but they did it. Many big venues will follow in short time.
Unfortunately their success had also a downside. In 2006, Sander was suffering ear damage and decided to quit with the successfull act “Playboyz”. After that John Wijdoogen decided to go solo and keep the name “Playboyz”.He created his own unique sound and showed it with his fast mixing skills at parties such as, Tomorrowland, Defqon 1, Reverze, Hardbass, Sensation Black, Summerfestival, Pussylounge, Nature 1, City Parade & many more.
With releases on big labels like, Zoo Records, Dirty Workz & Ghoststyle, and remixes for Coone, Mark with a K, Dr.Rude, Fenix, Q-ic, Lethal Mg & Chigago Zone he has also proven himself as a powerfull producer.In the end of 2011 and the beginning of 2012, John Wijdoogen had to take it slow for a while and had to stop with his biggest love “music” because of some physical problems. It was a hard time for him but he is fully recovered now and more ambitious than ever.
