It's the third edition of our weekly Q&A series with artists from Theracords
This time you get the chance to ask Phrantic your questions!

The story of Phrantic
Phrantic (Alex Diggelmann) had his first release at the age of 15 and soon thereafter got signed to Theracords. Since then he's released EPs like Dark Skies, The Edge of Extinction and Become One; all with great response here on Harderstate. Besides his solo releases he's also done collaborations with artists like Geck-o, Chris One, Stana, and others.

Since the start just 2 years ago he's played at parties like Ground Zero, Euphoria and Hardmasterz, which he also made the anthem for. (Road Warrior, video below)

A few releases he's featured on in 2011

Hey Q-Rater! :D

I'm producing since beginning 2008! What just started as experimenting became more and more serious!

I've first talked to Pieter (DJ Thera) on the infamous Global Hardstyle Forum in 2008. We used to write alot about our opinion on the position of hardstyle those days, it was just at the time he was setting up everything for Theracords to bring some freshness into the Hardstyle scene. Eventually i showed him some tracks i've come up with and he decided to release them. Thats how i got a member of the Theracords family! :dance:

Hey Rik!! :dance: Thanks alot, its awesome to hear that from someone with such awesome skills and talent!! You know you rock! ;)

Lately i've been trying to get a more coordinated workflow into my productions in order to get more quality and ofcourse more tracks/producing! Even though you got some awesome ideas to publish its sometimes hard to get your ass up in the studio and work things out, so thats much more easier with a plan. In total that takes about a week or a bit more per track, which should be about 20 hours total work just for arranging everything! Mixdown and smaller fixes come afterwards! :) So that means there will be some new tracks to be heard soon!! (You know them already ofcourse! xD)

You've had releases on AVIO, Theracords and your latest release was on Hardcopy,
Is your main focus still at Theracords, or do you plan on releasing more tracks on Hardcopy or smth? :)

Hey Sara! :D

I really dont like skype and prefer MSN since i'm used to it haha, so you have to fix your msn! :p
I check harderstate regularily on news besides other forums, but its the best one there is in english, so thats more confortable for me than reading dutch! :)
Last time was awesome so i'm definitely up for it! :D One more round of absinth, yaaay!

Me and Rik wanted to attempt a more easy listenable, catchy track, and that resulted in The Hard Way on AVIO, so we just released there as a duo since the track at that time didnt quite fit on Theracords. :) I don't have the plan to release there as a solo artist in the future, since im signed to Theracords which im very happy with! The remix i did for the guys from Phuture Noize on Hardcopy is just a remix as the title says. :p So that one ofcourse is also on the label the original track was released on.
