Hardstyle Mafia is definitely not a new name in the scene. The project was founded in 2005 by two Finnish brothers; Jesse & Markus Jokinen. Earlier they had been producing Trance/Hard Trance, but decided to move towards Hardstyle rather quickly. After a few years Markus decided to leave the project and now their long time friend, Kimi Niinimäki (aka Reptyler), joined in his place.
Jesse & Kimi started releasing on Bazz Implant Recordings in 2007 and immediately made a mark with releases such as: the collab with Alphaverb “Takin’ Over” & “Rockin’ Da Place”. After that they also released on Explosive Recordings and Knockout Beats Recordings, before signing to Spoontech Records in 2011.
