In March of 2005 A.C. Chakur, better known as MC Apster, was discovered by MC Q who asked him to perform at an event called ‘Infected’ in Valkenburg, NL. After his first performance things quickly got out of hand. Being discovered by MC Syco (Eastside Underground) and Patrick Lahaye of UHM Events gave him the confidence to continue. This paid out in bookings throughout Holland and Germany which gave him the much needed experience to grow as a true Master of Ceremonies.
When Q-dance announced an MC Contest named ‘Q-Factor’ in 2006, MC Apster saw his chance to join and make his move. During the following 5 month battle Apster made it into the final, in the end winning the contest and receiving a contract with Q-bookings as well as the recognition he worked so hard for.
Since, Apster has grown into a familiar face on stages both in Europe and abroad. Open to all styles electronic and beyond, this MC has shown his face among a diverse range of events. From house, electro and trance to the harder styles: hardcore, hardstyle, oldschool and techno. A skilled vocalist determined to bridge the gap between sound system and crowd.
Apster has performed at events such as Nature One,Defqon1, Q-Base, Reverze, X-Qlusive, Thunderdome, Decibel Outdoor, Bassleader, The Qontinent, Ground Zero, Raving Nightmare to name a few and worked with the likes of Armin Van Buuren, Afrojack, Ferry Corsten, Marco V, Erick E, Chuckie, Promo, Showtek, Zany, Headhunterz, The Prophet, Technoboy and many, many more…
Next to performing he invested time into the studio resulting in co-ops with several producers requesting his vocal skills to produce tracks and an album titled Art of Hardstyle by The Overminds (Future Sound Corporation) featuring Italian and German producers. His tracks have appeared on many labels, including Jumpmasters, DJS records, Poseidon as well as ACTIVA from Italy and Belgian label DWX.
Without a doubt one of the most versatile MC’s working today. Continuing to develop his skills, MC Apster is a respected MC in the dance scene with over 500 bookings in 5 years.
