Voted Best Upcoming Artist 2011 in our Harderstate Music Awards,
We got Arkaine here to answer your questions this week!

Simply ask your questions and they'll answer as soon as possible

Arkaine consists of Jim Craane and the two brothers Casper and Koen Pijnenburg, all residing in Dongen (no, really) in Holland. Last year they truly progressed in the scene getting their first release on X-Bone Records in May, "Voice of Desire". It didn't take long for them to progress and in September 2011 they had their first release on the respectable Scantraxx label, "Fear No More / Lost in Eternity".

Throughout 2011 and 2012 they've played at huge parties like Defqon.1, Q-BASE, Qountdown, X-Qlusive Noisecontrollers, and many more. Also don't forget to check out their free Birth Of A Galaxy album they released in 2010, featuring 7 full tracks with nothing but good response here on Harderstate!

How does the producing work for you guys? are all 3 involved/know a lot? or is it more concentrated on one guy/others giving ideas rather?

Just wanting to say thanks to TheJakkhammer for uploading a lot of melodies onto Youtube, before the Arkaine project was started. I liked them back in the days. :)

How exactly did you guys get signed by Scantraxx? (I know you were on X-Bone) But I saw you won the Digital Age context for Defqon.1 2011. And you went to Noisecontrollers' studio to learn more am I right?

How do you make your kicks :+

But serious, We all know that hardstyle has a sort of barrier between "Ametuer" artists and "Professional" artists. Do you guys find yourself still being treated as Ametuers or do other bigger artists actually respond to you etc?

Oh and whats it like to go from nothing to everything in less than a year?

1st question too answer! :D

For the producing, i (Casper) do most of the work in the studio work. And 1 / 2 times in the week we come together and make new ideas or finish older ones.

As for the music,
There is new info coming ^^ Will nog take too long.

Thnx,
We really liked to remake all those melodies!
Really learned a lot about music in that time, remaking is the best way to learn in my opinion :).

Arkaine is from the word Arcane wich means;
hidden, secret & mysterious.

We liked the meaning of the word, and to make it hardstyle'ish ( :p ) we changed some letters.

Fong:I know someones gonna ask, but what plugins and/or hardware do you guys use?? (H)


We mostly use plugins like Sylenth1, Massive & Nexus.
I also like to modify samples.

FX plugins,
We use several plugins for the fx, like the lexicon reverb (wich is really the best one out there!!) and for distortion just the Fruity Fast Dist, wich is a great plugin for some fast distortion.

We use no hardware.

We got a message from Scantraxx last year, they invited us to have a talk there.
And yes you are right, we won the Digital Age contest, and we went to the noise controllers studio :)
