Holland is the birthplace of Happy Hardcore and what makes it unique is that all over the country millions of kids demand their music Fast and Loud and we are not talking Tiësto. Many "Hard" music scenes thrive here, from Hardstyle & Jumpstyle to Hardcore & Industrial. The Party Animals are a phenomenon that continues to unite and excite generation after generation of loyal fans! Now, after fifteen years, the Time has come ...we are going GLOBAL... we're letting the world in on Holland's best kept secret.
Live on stage the Party Animals have always been represented by four guys with entertainment in their blood. The only thing is.... what four guys? Throughout the years the line-up has changed constantly... that's just one thing that makes the Party Animals unlike any other pop group. Nowadays the group consists of Martijn, Jan, Kelvin & EB, all in their late teens/early 20's. Martijn, who started out as Party Animal's webmaster in 2002 is the oldest of the group, Jan is the youngest. Kelvin and EB are somewhat rougher and harder than the rest.
The songs are made by Dutch/American dj/producers duo Flamman & Abraxas. After their "I Wanna Be A Hippy" remix for Technohead - which became a number one hit in at least five European countries, they took their signature sound to create the Party Animals. Many P.A.songs have enjoyed silver, gold and platinum status in Holland where three singles hit the number one in the singles charts consecutively. You may also remember Flamman & Abraxas from their earlier classics under the name Fierce Ruling Diva: Rubb It In and You've Got To Believe - two songs that defined Housemusic as it evolved.
