MC DL discovered his love for electronic harder dance sounds after a period of writing and performing Dutch and English hip hop music and started his Hardstyle journey in 2006, where he picked up the mic at a local party for the very first time. After a couple of party’s as a host MC and driven by good reactions, he was asked by Brennan Heart to be the host of the live formation called Blademasterz back in 2008 for some major festivals and indoor events. After this, the name MC DL was set for the future.
