In 2005, hip-hop producer Arjan Terpstra and hard-trance producer Bas Oskam decided to join forces to collaborate in order to bring more popularity to hardstyle and evolve the sound to the next level. The result was Noisecontrollers, and after a couple of years of experimenting with their live setup, the duo began touring through Europe, the United States, Australia, and throughout the rest of the world. Over the course of their career, Noisecontrollers has appeared at some of the largest hardstyle events there are, such as In Qontrol, X-Qlusive, Qrime Time, HardBass, Reveize.
Noisecontrollers established themselves early on with a hard sound featuring pounding bass kicks and intricate melodies. Tracks such as “Creatures”, “Marlboro Man”, and “Crump” quickly found an excited audience. By 2008, their albums were among the best selling hardstyle releases available.
