Alpha² – pronounced ‘Alpha Twins’ – are two brothers called Anco and Arjen Timmerman. They decided to call themselves twins, because of their similar taste in music and mutual agreement behind the decks.
Alpha² started as resident-dj’s at the Qlubtempo parties in Zaandam. Playing their typical rough hardstyle, this was their breakthrough. Soon bigger events followed: they played at the biggest Dutch events and festivals like Qlimax, Defqon.1, Hard Bass, Q-Base, Mystery Land, and Decibel, but also performed abroad in countries like Belgium, Germany, Swiss, Austria, Sweden, Spain, Italy, Poland, France and Ireland.
With their success as dj’s as well as producers, Alpha² decided that founding their own label was the next step. A2 Records came about early 2008 and releases their own productions as well as other quality hardstyle tracks.
