The universal acknowledgement of dance music has broken language barriers, religious beliefs and most of all created a global unity across dance floors worldwide for over 20 years. With the constant development of modern technologies paired with the power of the internet, more and more people are discovering they can dance to the same beat whoever they are and wherever they are, adding their own unique touch to it to create a diverse and unique sound which sweeps nations and lights up the world as one.
Such is true within the hard dance scene with a truly global sound with each country adding they own unique twist to it. This phenomenon caused two great scene veterans from opposite sides of the North Sea to combine their efforts into uniting all fronts of hard dance from around the world into one concept... and so International Hard Dance Sessions was born!
Set up by two very unique artists; Phil York known worldwide for his uplifting hard trance sound as well as a key player behind the scenes running major UK labels and artists such as Lisa Lashes & Kutski as well as his own Tranzlation label, and the voice of Q-Dance radio Fausto. Label boss of Excessive recordings and the most diverse dj in the hard dance scene playing the biggest hard dance and trance parties around Europe and further afield and the only dj to play at every single major festival and indoor event in Holland!
The goal of International Hard Dance Sessions is to unite the world in one concept, picking key artists from each territory to showcase their hard edge sound including hard trance from Germany, hardstyle from Holland, hard dance from the U.K, Tech dance from Japan and everything in-between, from every key port of hard dance across the globe!
