Hard Kandy (1999 – 2014)
The longest running Hard Dance Brand in Australia, and still managing events till today. Consistently selling out shows and touring artists from all over the World.
Australia is considered to have one of the most sophisticated and diverse scenes in the World. It is no easy task to achieve the kind of success that this clubbing institution has had, and still has.
In the late 90’s, with the hunger and the vision to give Melbourne a new direction, a new enthusiasm, and most importantly, a new standard to expect from the DJ’s and promoters of this city, week in, week out, every Friday night, with record numbers of Melbourne clubbers looking palpably shocked, that they could be having such an amazing night out.
Hard Kandy was born!!
What has followed from then, has been a dream come true for the underground dance community of this country, as Aussie clubs take what they’ve got to offer to the World stage, as well as bringing the World’s best DJ’s & producers to party with us here. Now having taken the brand to Malaysia, South Africa, New Zealand, more excitement is on the horizon for HK.
Its Merchandising has also hit the mark, with shipping its Kandy branded clothing, to over 50 countries around the globe.
Now in it’s 15th year, HK has played host to a list of DJ’s and producers, that reads like a who’s who of the dance music scene, with international and interstate guests featured regularly – with so much talent and influence at its disposal, the club has become a Mecca for punters, DJ’s and artists alike from all over the World to enjoy.

★ DJ ISAAC [NL]
Isaac is at the forefront of harder dance music; a position he now holds for over 15 years and can be considered as one of the founders of Hardstyle. This background and his continuing efforts in the studio make him a regular headliner at the world’s biggest dance festivals and events like Electric Daisy Carnival, Defqon.1 Festival, Qlimax and Decibel Outdoor.
As a producer it is very clear that Isaac has been influenced by many different styles of music; besides harder dance styles. Isaac has been very successful with various trance projects. Other renowned artists quickly found their way to his studio and Isaac soon remixed tracks for Dash Berlin, Mauro Picotto, Showtek and Cosmic Gate.
Furthermore he is responsible for big hits like “DJ, Ease My Mind’, ‘B*tches, ‘In The Air‘ and ‘The Sound Of The Underground’ and co-productions with D-Block & S-te-Fan, Wildstylez & Zany.

A bright future for an artist, who has created his own world.
