Thorâs thundering beats
DJ Thor, a.k.a. Hein van der Wielen, was born on July 9th 1974 in the south of the Netherlands. He already became interested in spinning at a young age and started as a club DJ in 1992. His unique sound includes the harder jumpstyle and (French) hardstyle.
He started his career at a well-known radio station at the age of 15. Besides being a radio DJ he wanted to experience the vibe of the audience. Soon he became infected with the club virus and was especially influenced by both the Belgian and the French house scene, in which the harder styles like “new beat”, and later “jumpstyle” prevailed even before the harder styles like hardcore became popular in Holland.
After weekly residencies at major clubs such as Palladio and several successful gigs at the Amsterdam ArenA, Lloret de Mar, Playa dâAro (Spain) and Marmaris (Turkey), he started organizing dance concepts. At Danssalon Eindhoven Activator was launched, a weekly jumpstyle concept. Other projects he initiated are NRGIZER, Dance-Axion and Hard One, at which Thor invites top-of-the-bill hardstyle-deejays. For some time Thor has been producing several tracks which he is about to release on the Activator label.
