Antoon

Starting from a young age, Antoon was focused on only one goal: to become a musician. In 2020, he was the first artist to sign with Big2’s label Dreamteam Music and released his debut album ‘De Nacht Is Van Ons’. 

 

Antoon went all out with his hit ‘Hyperventilatie‘ which has already reached 26 million (!) streams and also received a gold record for it. He received massive radio support in the Netherlands and reached 59 million streams in 2021. And to make it even crazier, Antoon also completely sold out Paradiso (Amsterdam), Paard (The Hague), 013 (Tilburg), and many more venues in the Netherlands.

 

The 19-year-old artist hails from the Hoorn area and began playing drums and classical piano at a young age. At the age of fifteen he dropped out of high school to become the youngest candidate ever to be accepted at the Herman Brood Academy.

 

From that moment on, Antoon mixed in his productions the 80’s/Disco influences he got from home with EDM and later on he also started to add HipHop influences. This resulted in his own unique style which is a combination of HipHop and Pop music

In July 2020, Boef dropped his second studio album ‘Allemaal Een Droom’ with featurings of Ronnie Flex, Ashafar, Dopebwoy and international superstar Tory Lanez.

Antoon

Al van jongs af aan was Antoon bezig met maar één doel: muzikant worden. In 2020 tekende Antoon als eerste artiest bij Big2’s label Dreamteam Music en bracht hij zijn debuutalbum De Nacht Is Van Ons‘ uit. 

 

Antoon ging helemaal van de grond met zijn hit ‘Hyperventilatie’ dat tot nu toe al 26 miljoen (!) streams haalde en kreeg hiervoor ook een gouden plaat. Antoon kreek massaal radio support in Nederland en behaalde in 2021 59 miljoen streams. Om het nog gekker te maken verkocht Antoon ook Paradiso (Amsterdam), Paard (Den Haag), 013 (Tilburg), .. volledig uit.

 

De 19-jarige artiest komt uit de omgeving van Hoorn en begon al op jonge leeftijd met het spelen van drum en klassieke piano. Op zijn vijftiende zwaaide hij af van het VWO om als allerjongste kandidaat ooit op de Herman Brood Academie te worden aangenomen.

 

Antoon combineerde vanaf toen in zijn producties de 80’s/Disco invloeden die hij vanuit thuis heeft meegekregen, met EDM en langzaam aan kwamen daar ook HipHop invloeden bij. Hieruit ontstond zijn eigen, unieke stijl die een combinatie is van HipHop en Pop muziek.
