Filterheadz are best known for their smash techno hits Sunshine & Yimanya as well as their highly energetic DJ performances.

It all started when Bert & Maarten picked up guitar and drums and took the first steps on the way to Rock ‘n Roll stardom. After hammering away in rehearsal rooms and local stages their dream to become rock stars took a surprising twist. Almost by accident they discovered the House Music and started
experimenting with loops and disco samples.

Their remix of Minimalistix ‘Struggle for Pleasure’ became an instant progressive house classic. Together with DJ Tomaz they embarked on a Techno journey that would lead them to Carl Cox’ Intec where they released their all time classic “Sunshine”. Taking their signature sound even further Filterheadz released “Yimanya”, another festival classic.

Extensive tours took Filterheadz to every corner of the globe and placed them high on the bill of events like I love Techno, Dance Valley & Tomorrowland and headlining clubs like Zouk, Ageha, Womb, Fabrik Madrid & Egg London.

2012 marked the 10th anniversary of Sunshine and a release of a smashing remix package on 1605. They also put themselves back on the Techno map with a string of new releases on Intec, MB Elektronics, 1605, Bedrock and Bitten.

2015, Filterheadz join forces with Toolroom: With 5 charting singles, including Flying Colours and Curve plus a Toolroom Live mix album.

After a string of consistent, quality EP’s, Filterheadz make their return to Toolroom Trax in 2017 with their debut artist album ‘Magnetic’. ‘Magnetic’ encapsulates that signature Filterheadz sound providing plenty of Techno grooves, atmospheric synths, locomotive drum sequencing and hooky vocals. Offering 18 club ready weapons and a full-length DJ mix to complete the package, ‘Magnetic’ ventures into the darker side of Tech House and Techno. Highlights include ‘Ricochet’ with it’s pumping b-line, the instantly catchy ‘Kaleidoscope’ with it’s atmospheric builds, chunky Techno roller ’Paper City’ and ‘Raised By Wolves’ with those progressive techno vibes. Also included are past hits ‘Clockwise’, ‘Curve’, ‘In The Box’ and ‘Flying Colours’.

2018: Techno veterans Filterheadz keep pushing forward with a string of releases on Unity Records and Transmit Records. More inspired and productive than ever, the unique Filterheadz sound that blends techno beats and melody keeps rocking dance floors all over the world.
