Patrick van der Beek, also known as D-Mind, came in touch with the hardstyle sound in 2004. Enjoying this style for a few years, he dreamed of creating his own tracks. In September 2007 he took that step, and started producing. Since then, his productions became better and more professional. His first release, combining forces with \"Dfuzion\", was released in 2009, called \"Fissure\". He has had numerous releases since then under the labels Aussie Hardstyle Recordz, Hard Hammer, Nubeat Records and now Toxxic Records. As well as continuing to make Hardstyle, Patrick switched some of his focus to make House music, but you\'ll still see some solo Hardstyle tracks and remixes pop up.
