Vrijdag 5 september 2014 zal de Adaro Comeback Night plaatsvinden in de Leerfabriek in Oisterwijk. Kaarten zijn verkrijgbaar op Adaronight.com. 

Ik hoop jullie daar allemaal te zien!

To my fans:

I would like to thank everyone again for the constant support and encouragement that I have been fortunate to receive. It helps me so much!

I am doing better, but the symptoms have not completely subsided. As such, I am not in shape to return to the stage just yet. Unfortunately, this means that I must cancel the gigs for May, June and July. It pains me to have to do this, but on the bright side I have seen real progress over the past couple of weeks, which gives me a very positive feeling about the future!

In the meantime, thanks to various tests I have a much better idea about what is going on. I was experiencing quiet sounds as excessively loud due to an oversensitivity to external noises, a condition known as ‘hyperacusis.’ Everyday sounds were too much for me; I couldn’t listen to music or watch TV normally anymore. This was caused by chronic hypertension in the muscles around my ear and jaw.

The other symptoms, such as the headaches, earaches and ringing in my ears, were a result of the entire hearing system being overloaded. Basically, the brain and nerves also translate acoustic stimuli as pain stimuli, and that was causing the problems mentioned.

Fortunately, hearing tests revealed that wearing ear protection whenever I was DJing or clubbing over the years really helped: I have not sustained any type of permanent damage to my hearing whatsoever.

So far, I have been dealing with my condition as follows:
I have seen various physical therapists who are jaw and neck specialists. Treatment includes massage, dry needling, exercising the muscles in the ears and relieving pressure on several jaw muscles, which has reduced some of the symptoms. I also started wearing a mouth guard after jaw specialists determined that I clench my jaws during sleep as well as unconsciously when I am awake, which causes muscle tension.

I am being treated by the ENT Tinnitus and Hyperacusis Team at the Erasmus Hospital in Rotterdam, where they are helping me learn how to deal with noise more effectively. In the beginning, I needed a lot of rest; now I am in the process of gradually building up exposure, which takes time.

My plan for the months ahead is to try to resume my studio work and slowly increase the hours. Once I can do this without any problems, the next step before I get behind the decks is to go to a party and find out whether I can tolerate the high noise level. I will test things backstage first and see if I can handle it without experiencing pain. When I can do that, I will start making plans for a comeback.

I do not want to jump the gun and come back too soon at the risk of quickly putting myself out of commission again. It has to feel totally right, and I am not giving myself a deadline, as difficult as that is for me.

I hope everyone has a fantastic festival season – enjoy it! Thanks again for all of the support and hopefully see you soon!!

Cheers,
Thijs

Een minder leuke boodschap voor al mijn fans: 

Sinds half januari ben ik plotseling zeer overgevoelig voor geluid geworden. Relatief zachte geluiden komen zelfs heel hard binnen waardoor het onverdraaglijke oorpijnscheuten, hoofdpijnscheuten en oorsuizingen veroorzaakt. Ondanks dat ik altijd met goede gehoorbescherming en beperkt monitorvolume heb opgetreden is er toch iets niet in orde. 

In de studio heb ik al enige weken rust genomen en nu ben ik vanwege deze klachten ook genoodzaakt om mijn draaiactiviteiten voorlopig uit te stellen; naast mijn geplande optredens als Adaro geldt dit ook voor Gunz For Hire dat mijn boekingen in maart niet door gaan.

Ik ga momenteel door een moeilijke periode. Muziek maken en draaien is behalve mijn vak ook een van mijn grote passies in het leven. Ik ga er alles aan doen, met professionele hulp, om zo snel mogelijk weer terug te komen. Ik moet naar de signalen van mijn lichaam luisteren en daarom volledige rust pakken. 

Hopelijk begrijpen jullie dat ik ook minder actief met mijn social media zal zijn, ik wil en ga er echt alles aan doen om te herstellen. 

Ik hoop zo snel mogelijk weer op het podium te kunnen staan om met jullie samen te feesten! 

Thijs

Unfortunately I have some bad news to share with my fans:

Since mid-January I suddenly have become over-sensitive for sound which causes a lot of pain. Even the smallest noise gives me intolerable headaches and a piercing feeling in my ear.

Because of this I have not been in the studio for the last weeks and now I am also forced to cancel my March’ performances. This not only applies for my gigs as Adaro but also for all planned Gunz for Hire shows. 

I am currently going through a difficult period myself. Being a producer and dj is not only my profession but also one of my great passions in life. I have always used professional ear protection and watched the limits on my monitor speakers. Still this has happened and that is really hard to encompass. I'm going to do everything, with professional help, to get back on stage as soon as possible.

In order to focus on my recovery I will make less frequent appearances on my social media channels, hope you will all understand. All I want is to be on stage again as soon as possible to party with everyone.

Thijs

If anyone has any further questions please contact my management through: rudy@scantraxx.com. For booking related
issues please e-mail info@platinum-agency.com.

Adaro
Introduction

Modest in his core, yet exceptionally passionate when it comes to performances and creating music, Adaro is unquestionably one of the most ambitious artists within the hardstyle scene. As a DJ, Adaro has the look and feel of a true entertainer – his undying energy and widespread knowledge of music are just some of his greatest assets on stage.

After years of watching his biggest heroes behind the decks at clubs and huge indoor events,
Thijs Ploegmakers, or better known as Adaro had a growing interest in not only listening to electronic music but also immersing himself in the world of production. Beginning his productions within other genres of dance music, Thijs then shifted his attention to hardstyle in 2008 which saw him working and collaborating regularly with Ran-D, resulting in their first release on A2 Records, “My Name Is Hardstyle” in 2009. Little did Thijs know that this first release would signify a life-time of achievements, an impressive and diverse discography, rewarding memories and several memorable performances…

Adaro continued to pursue his own signature sound, which is a sound that has captivated thousands of fans around the world and has also inspired many budding producers. Adaro’s sound can be simply described as a sophisticated and atmospheric approach to hardstyle, blending in a range of different sounds and packing in and endless supply of energy! His hard beats are notorious for getting fans going on the dance-floor and his diverse and addictive sound has drawn in a remarkable number of listeners worldwide.

Tracks such as “The Haunter of the Dark,” “Dark Universe,” with hardcore legend Rob Gee, his remix of “Answers” by Chain Reaction, “Open The Gates” with E-Force and MC Nolz have all had a huge impact on the hardstyle scene, subsequently securing Adaro’s name in a sacred position. Apart from his remarkable solo discography, Gunz For Hire classics including “Bolivia,” “Kings Of The Underground” and “Sorrow” have impacted fans worldwide and just go to show how incredibly diverse Adaro’s production skills are.

Finding himself playing at some of the most prestigious parties such as Qlimax, Q-BASE, Mysteryland (The Netherlands), Intents Festival, Hard Bass, Decibel Outdoor Festival, Qlimax, Defqon.1 (Australia and The Netherlands) and also having the honour to host several nights and stages, Adaro has proved that consistency and approaching his projects with passion and dedication pays off. Celebrating many milestone performances, moments and chart-topping hits throughout his career, Adaro hasn’t only impacted the lives of hardstyle fans in The Netherlands, but has also spread his sound to all corners of the globe. He’s had the honour to perform internationally several times in countries such as Australia, Chile, Spain, The United States, Germany, Scotland and many more.

Apart from a performance schedule that’s packed to the brim and some more releases to add to his agenda, another huge development came about in 2015 that saw Adaro teaming up with a stellar team of artists to create something new and unique. Alongside B-Front, Frequencerz and Ran-D, the brand new label ‘Roughstate’ was established as a platform to represent high-quality and sophisticated hardstyle. Since its conception, the label has been a huge success and has become a platform that personally represents Adaro and what his music stands for.

Working his way to become one of the leading names in the hardstyle scene, Adaro is recognised as the full-package entertainer. All pieces of the puzzle fit together, from his productions to his performances and image, Adaro isn’t just a DJ and producer, but an artistic innovator.

He is the king of the underground… The haunter of the dark who will hit you with that bang sh*t… He is Adaro…
