Combining genres across the spectrum, Dutch DJ and producer Hitmane (real name Beau Manancourt) has been creating a musical world that is both up-beat and sentimental at times. Citing hip-hop, R&B, pop and dance music as his main influences, the young producer has already caught the attention of well-respected artists like Ryan Hemsworth and Porter Robinson, who regularly include his music in their DJ sets.
After releasing a string of remixes online, playing shows alongside established names like Cashmere Cat and Eclair Fifi, and being invited to play on 3FM, Hitmane debuted with four original songs in the form of his Trapped IRL EP, which was released in the summer of 2015 on Prime Ordeal (a record label founded by Blackbird Blackbird & Avidd). That same summer his remix of Juicy J’s “Bandz A Make Her Dance” was featured in a Vine that went viral, and has since garnered over 23 million views.
