Succeeding a brilliant first part of the album that racked up millions of streams across the most popular platforms, ‘Kings And Queens (Part 2)’ introduces another six divergent masterpieces. From infectious lead single ‘Wasted’ to the previously released ‘Moving On’ and ‘Goin’ Down’ to new cuts in the form of ‘Super Trendy Kicks’, ‘Just Dance’ and ‘Brothers In Arms’, ‘Kings & Queens (Part 2)’ equates to six-sided crossover brilliance fit for a king.

Applauded by living legends such as Armin van Buuren and Tiësto, the Tilburg-based household name notched up millions of streams and tons of acclaim with singles such as ‘Zonnestraal’, ‘Bloesem’ (with Sam Feldt) and ‘Back In The Day’ (with Goodluck). With a trick up his sleeve for every occasion, he’s ready to court every dance music fan who hasn’t yet jumped on his bandwagon and does so through this wonderful second part of his ‘Kings And Queens’ album.

ABOUT De Hofnar

De Hofnar an alias for Jeroen Maas, has started producing electronic music in his early childhood. When he first was confronted with the combination of electronic sounds with classic elements he knew where his future lay. The instrumental aspect provoked him to give his own twist to the contemporary house music. Creative productions in which melodic house and deep house are brought together and classical instruments play an important role are the result. This combination doesn’t only result in unique productions, but also in unique melodic DJ sets that have a lot of depth and provide a unique experience.
In 2013, his debut single “Oxas”, in collaboration with Camper & Dadoni, was released by MCM Records, shortly thereafter followed his first official EP “Zonnestraal” released by Crosswalk. With these numbers and the famous remixes of Same Love (Macklemore) and All of Me (John Legend), which have over millions of plays on Soundcloud and Youtube, De Hofnar quickly made a name in the melodic deep house scene.

After releasing Bloesem, together with Sam Feldt on Spinnin Deep, and various remixes on Armada, Sony and Warner, De Hofnar teamed up with the South African electronic band Coodluck. Their collaboration Back in the day, which was released by Armada Deep, hit number one in the South African charts.
This track was the beginning of a long-term relationship with Armada. In 2016 this relationship became official by signing an exclusive deal. Which indicates more captiving productions and great tracks in the near future.
