The love for music runs through the veins of these two dutch guys. Roeland van Houten and Martijn van Hassel teamed up for the first time in 2005 under the aliases "Remote" and "Fanaticz". They signed their first record deal with "eye4dance" imprint "Feeling good records" (Spinnin records sub label). Besides signing "So sexy, Disfunction and Street" under their Fanaticz brand they both also worked on their solo projects. Martijn, has signed a couple tracks under his alias "Martinez del Rocca" (including the track Masquerade on Rizardo Records) but also under the alias “Martino” (including the track “Let’s get dirty” which was in the dutch dance top 30 for 11 weeks). Roeland, who started his career at the legendary club Spock Breda (Netherlands) (Tiesto, Funkerman and Cor Fijneman also started at this venue) runned his career as a fulltime dj under alias "Leonardus Amore" with many residencies in the Netherlands and gigs all over Europe sharing line ups along side Hardwell, Vato Gonzalez, Ida Engbergh, Fedde le Grand and many more. The Fanaticz project ended in 2009 because they were both focusing on their solo careers.
In 2012 they got back in the studio, and produced the track "Euphoria" this unsigned record gave birth to "2econd Life". A magical collaboration which was broadcasted on several radio shows worldwide. Their style could be described as a mix between trance and progressive house with energy as a fundamental element. A full year of focusing in the studio brings "2econd Life" under the attention of some event planners. The gigs started rolling in and they proved that they still have the chemistry with the crowd while playing sounds of their own.
As mentioned earlier music runs through their veins. This new project carries the name 2econd Life for a reason..keep your eyes and ears open for this new brand..2014 will be a musical journey.
