Crisis Era

Name: Matt Bekhterev & Silas Radies
Label: WE R Music

Fresh. Talented. Exciting. Just a few words that have been used to described the Canadian hardstyle duo Crisis Era. The young producers got their start spreading hardstyle across North America in 2011. Over the next 2 years Crisis Era would prove themselves a dominant force in the North American Hard Dance scene with many charting releases, a web show, and prestigious bookings such as EDC Las Vegas & Defqon 1 Australia; where they made standout performances.

It wasn’t long before the waves they were creating in North America reached European shores, as fans and DJs alike began to take notice. One man was particularly interested in what all the buzz was about, and that man was Brennan Heart; a pioneer in the hardstyle world. Eager to meet in person, Brennan Heart invited Crisis Era to Holland, where they would perform at his X-Qlusive in January 2014. Confident in their abilities, Brennan Heart offered them a place on newly founded record label: WE R Music, already boasting such names as Code Black, Toneshifterz, and Outbreak.

In August of that year, Crisis Era released their first single with WE R called “Loud”. The track was a huge commercial success, making its way onto multiple CD’s, podcasts, festival main stages, and the official Mysterland aftermovie. Amidst the storm that Loud had created, the Canadians were invited back to Europe to help represent WE R Music at Hard Dance Event Live, a Harder Styles showcase during Amsterdam Dance Event. It quickly became clear that the duo had assumed their identity amongst the European Hardstyle heavyweights.

With a jam packed 2015 ahead, Crisis Era is determined to prove that they are ready to be at the forefront of the global Hard Dance movement.
