„Hamburg Hardstyle“ was founded by DJ Dwarf (Sascha L.) and dj_jk (Jan K.) end of the year 2005 in Hamburg, Germany. A Track containing the keyword „Hamburg Hardstyle“ had already been presented to a broad audience for the first time on Sunshine Live „Hire & Fire“ in Spring 2005. Afterwards it could not only be heard on the camping ground of the festival Airbeat One, but was also played on the Hardstyle Floor. The two DJs decided to use this keyword and began to preform under that pseudonym in different clubs in Northern Germany. By now they can look back on a lot of gigs in renowned clubs e.g. Tunnel (Hamburg), NewBambu (Neustadt-Holstein) and the Resident E. In the year 2008 Newcomer Benno S. joined the team. As „B.N.O“ he will be working the turntables for „Hamburg Hardstyle“.
