Biography

Philippe Rochard got into dance music back in 1994 when he started to spin at local school parties. He released his first 12’ called “System of Love” under the guise of Akropolis two years later co-producer of this track was non other than Germany’s star producer Marc Van Linden (better known as R.E.D. S.E.C.T.O.R.). The track turned into a club hit in Switzerland and Germany and got licensed to a number of compilations across Europe. DJ-Bookings in Germany, Holland and Austria followed. In 2002 Philippe Rochard has done a handful of remixes for the far east’s biggest dance music promoter and record label Avex (also home to the likes of Ferry Corsten, Tiesto and Yoji Biomehanika among others) and scored a massive club hit in Japan with “Back Again” as Da Brainblasters in 2004 Philippe’s own Sectorbeatz label is one of the leading labels for the harder generation of dance music with releases such as “The Survivors of Hardstyle”, “Computerliebe X.2” and “Bounce Da Beat” while “Breathing”, a cooperation between Philippe Rochard and DJ Eruption, got recently picked up by Dutch DJs Luna and Pila for a release on their StraightOn label. Philippe has opened the gates to the international Hardstyle-scene and has DJs like Max B Grant standing in his footsteps ready to take the world by storm!
