Hardstyle Wiki

Barry Drooger, better known as Frontliner or Abject, is a Dutch Hardstyle producer and DJ. He is known for his unique and innovative style that is recognized in most of his new tracks. He also is the founder of his Label Keep It Up.


Barry started producing in 2005 under the alias Abject. Together with Headhunterz, he created the hits "Scantraxx Rootz" & "End Of My Existence".

From 2008 on Barry produced as Frontliner, and at Scantraxx. In a short time, Frontliner got a well-known name and he played on the stages of Defqon.1, Reverze and many more.[1]

In 2012 Frontliner made the big step and left Scantraxx to found his own label "Keep It Up". From this point on he became even a bigger name in the Hard Dance scene, with tracks like "Never Come Down", "I'm The Melodyman" and "Halos" (featuring John Harris) he got many new fans. He also made the Q-Base Anthem in this year called "Symbols" which track got awarded as the best track/anthem of 2012 on several votings like the "Harderstate Music Awards" or "Freaqshow Top 10 Tracks of 2012".

After all this Barry still doesn't look at 2012 as 'his' year, in his opinion it's yet to come, "2013 will be 'my' year" is what he said.
