The Prophet, 2015

Dov J. Elkabas (born November 5, 1968) alias DJ The Prophet is a Dutch DJ/producer and one of the Dutch leading gabber and hardstyle DJs. The Prophet is also the owner of one of the largest hardstyle record labels, Scantraxx.[1]

Biography[edit]

The Prophet started his career as a DJ in 1983 after he discovered turntables at a disco in Amsterdam. He was working in a hotel at the time, and performing as DJ on the side. He was asked to choose, and made the choice to DJ fulltime.[2] He started spinning hip hop music before a switch to house in 1988.[3] About three years later, he set up a team of DJ's known as "The Dreamteam", together with DJ Dano, Buzz Fuzz and Gizmo.[4] The team was a huge success in the gabber scene.[5]

Later, The Prophet switched from hardcore to hardstyle because he did not like the fact that the hardcore public wanted the music to be harder and harder.[5] He is famous both as a DJ and as a producer.[citation needed] He is also the owner of Scantraxx Records, one of the leading Dutch hardstyle record labels.[5]

His productions were released on vinyl and CDs on labels such as ID&T or Q-dance. He is also behind many DJ mixes which were published on CDs, such as the Thunderdome CDs. And he was involved in harddance projects such as Hardheadz (along with DJ Pavo) and Punk Brozz (with DJ Zany).

In 2014 he released his first album, Louder. It took about 9 months from start to finish to create this album.[2]
