Attention to miniscule details, translating intense emotions into sound and striving for the highest standard have been lifelong values that Hardstyle pioneer Ran-D possesses. As one of the most thorough, yet down-to-Earth figures in the Hard Dance industry, Randy Wieland’s knowledge extends into all aspects of production as his enthusiasm and drive shines throughout all of his creations.
Considered to be one of Hardstyle’s most steadfast and focussed producers, Ran-D also takes this dedication to the wheels of steel, where he’s captivated crowds of thousands at Defqon.1 (The Netherlands, Australia & Chile), Decibel Outdoor, Intents Festival, Mysteryland, Q-BASE, Reverze, Qlimax, EDC Las Vegas, Tomorrowland and many more. Furthermore, Ran-D has recently welcomed in 2017 by taking centre stage at his very own X-Qlusive, a night that revolved around his steadfast loyalty and wholesome passion in Hardstyle.
Now ready to continue kicking goals, Ran-D has proudly unveiled his next mission in the works! Titled “We Rule The Night,” this forthcoming musical project is set to change the face of Hardstyle, as this pioneer is prepared to overhaul and enhance the genre.

'When [British singer] Nathan [James Biggs; formerly of THE HOLLOW EARTH THEORY] joined the band in 2009, a fire ignited and everything just felt truly natural for the first time in many ways.
