Tha Playah

(2002 – present)

Tha Playah, born as Jim Hermsen in 1982, has developed his own particular style from the very beginning. Few artists had a start that can be compared to the storm this man unleashed in 2002. With enormous hits on the very popular Neophyte label he has proven himself record after record. Being one of the few artists ever to be contracted from the very start of his career to a label as prestigious as Neophyte Records, this dj made it very clear he deserved that chance.

His dj experience goes way back to the mid nineties when he started to practice and occasionally did a gig. However, most of his talent was saved for his big breakthrough. Since 2002 he made it up with performances on numerous big raves worldwide.

All of his productions received massive dj support on hardcore events. The enormous hits “Rotterdam Nightmare” (the anthem of the very successful return of this legendary event) “Weird Shit” and “Fuck the Fame” underlined the fact that Tha Playah deserved his success.

His performance can be best described as utterly remorseless; leaving his audience fulfilled, but totally blown away, probably missing a limb or two. Being a producer has his advantages; his performances always feature unreleased and exclusive tracks.

The debut album of one of Neophyte Records’ finest, youngest and most talented hardcore artists, Tha Playah is called “The Greatest Clits”.

    Most of his stuff is pretty good, but damn, the vocal samples in some of the tracks are just ridiculous. Keep them titties jumpin'...

    Man, it took me more than half a year to realize how fucking awesome this guy really is. I'll probably still be jamming to Walking The Line several years from now.

    Tha Playah is a boss. There are almost none that surpass him when it comes to magnificent melodies combined with blistering beats.
