After fifteen magnificent years, the time has come to say farewell to Q-BASE. With an orange heart filled with pride, we look back at a festival that will forever hold a very special place in our heart.
The first time we laid eyes on Weeze’s abandoned Airbases, we instantly knew: “this is where we’re going to throw insane parties”.
And so we did. Raving from bunker till bunker until we saw the sun come up.
But now the final edition is upon us: the concluding chapter of the Q-BASE story. Don’t be afraid, every ending is a new beginning.
That’s why we’re launching a unique new concept at Airport Weeze in 2019. A concept which allows us to explore and expand our boundaries. Because inspiring and providing you with the best party experience, that’s what we owe you.
The ultimate salute takes place on September 8. A salute to 15 years of Q-BASE and to you, the loyal Die Hard. Prepare to go out in style as we’ve got the biggest, baddest, roughest and most insane Q-BASE experience ever in store for you. It will be a legendary farewell, and we hope that you will be part of it.
We’ve only just begun.
Calling all international fans! The Scantraxx team is packing their bags, getting passports ready and are heading to a city near YOU. Armed with a team of mighty artists, timeless tunes and wild shenanigans, you’d better buckle up and prepare yourselves for the ultimate Scantraxx experience!
We are always overwhelmed by the amount of support we receive internationally, so we feel as though it’s time to give something special back to our fans abroad… We are proud to announce that in 2018 the beloved S.W.A.T. tour is returning and going to make your city go wild!
S…WHAT?! Long-time fans of Scantraxx Recordz would definitely remember the notorious Scantraxx World Artist Tour, aka S.W.A.T., from back in the days. Marked as a big success during the earlier years of the label, S.W.A.T. ran through numerous countries and saw the label’s most powerful driving forces such as The Prophet, Headhunterz, Wildstylez, Technoboy and Scope DJ gracing the decks with their Scantraxx power.
2018’s S.W.A.T. tour sees us recruiting an A-class selection of artists from today’s label and also the earlier days to take-on the task of bringing the Scantraxx feels worldwide. With three confirmed locations on the horizon, we’re excited to hit the road at full throttle and meet with all of our faithful followers from abroad!
So fans, get ready – ‘cause Scantraxx could be making some memories in your country!
After a decade of countless shared memories and magical collaborations, Headhunterz and Wildstylez align paths and seal their friendship to establish a visionary movement: Art of Creation. The blueprint of the label originates from their mutual artistic – often melodic – approach to Hardstyle that has inspired many of us throughout the years. Radiant and pure, crafted with passion and precision.
We represent a scene that surpasses the ordinary – one of the few where unity and dedication are still key values. A community that is bound by a history, a path, a purpose. Art of Creation sets out to honor these values, revive the past and contribute to its future by introducing a new storyline where we will set forth on our journey and bring along new talent on the rise. A dynamic platform where years of experience, friendship, talent and passion come together and spark new inspiration on the pursuit for quality and greatness in music.
The future ahead lives in our imagination.
Until it is shaped by the Art of Creation.
With pride we can announce that Sven Sieperda is back to hit the charts with his brand-new act: KELTEK!
We are honoured to have this musical legend joining the Scantraxx family. Equipped with a collection of the finest Hardstyle tunes, KELTEK is here to bring a distinctive sound packed with huge atmospheres and stunning melodies!
Describing himself as ‘neither hard, nor soft,’ KELTEK aims to freely explore Hardstyle in its finest form and bring his top-notch productions up to the biggest stages! With his first booking announced at Summerfestival, Sven will soon announce some other performance hot-spots!
You’ve been warned – new music is coming your way, starting with his first Scantraxx release, titled “Down To Earth.”

Just a few days left before 2016 will come to an end, if we take a look back to the past year it was more than productive year for us.
Since 2014 when we got two new team members (2014: Nightstalker / 2015: Ceero) our blog started to grow up more and more.
Nightstalker & VTraxx where updating the blog with a lot of older releases and stuff.
And we have some great new features coming soon next year!
With Ceero’s help we could add also the genre “Subground” with labels like: QULT Records, Subground Records, FE Records, The Funky Cat to our blog.
This year we also got the chance to make new connections to popular Hardstyle labels and working together with them updating and posting upcoming releases.
As maybe some of you people know, we also have a ‘little brother’ site Hardcore-Releases.com which will be more active next year!.
Also a big shoutout and THANK YOU to you all who follow us every day & use us as source for looking to old/new releases.

We are extremely proud to welcome yet another talented member into the Scantraxx family! Malua fell head over heels in love with the harder styles when she received the Qlimax 2002 CD as a gift. After visiting her very first hardstyle festival, Defqon.1 in 2006, Malua began visiting more and more parties as her passion for the music exponentially grew. In 2012, Malua began mixing and showcasing her mixes online. Soon after, she received a request from Q-Dance, which led her to spreading her charm at the Defqon.1 2013 after party in the Q-Dance Radio area!
Since her first performance, Malua has gone from strength to strength and her hard work and effort has paid off, resulting in the release of her first track “Back and Forth” alongside High Voltage. Her first track generated a huge response and a remarkable amount of support from B-Front and Titan. Malua is not afraid to play rough and her productions just go to show that there is more than meets the eye!
Celebrating her debut on Scantraxx Recordz, Malua’s first release “Brightness” (released on Scantraxx Silver) is set to shake the scene and prove that she’s a force to be reckoned with! With a bright future ahead and some huge goals that will be achieved, we are extremely proud to celebrate Malua joining our family!
