Ives got to know the art of MC-ing when he was 15. He went to his first Hardcore party “Thunderdome @ the Antwerp sports palace”. When he entered the big hall he learned that is not only a DJ that makes the crowd move there was this guy on stage next to the DJ with a mic. This guy was pumping up the people making them go even more crazy with every word he said. Ives knew then that’s what he wanted to be “a crowd pleaser” a master of ceremony or as everyone calls him, Ives wanted to be an MC. His big idol was and still is MC Jercky. As Hardcore went more underground he started to listen to Hip hop and got addicted to the lyrics of Tupac and Eminem. In 2005 he came in contact with Hardstyle and when he heard the MC’s again he was determined to become an MC . Practising on recorded live sets of hardstyle DJ’s he got more and more in to it. In 2008 came his big break he got in contact with DJ Re-Act. Who gave him a chance to perform for his first time . Bassfase lose control was his first performance as an MC. @ Bassfase he met again with the music he had in his heart “Hardcore!” The name MC Reign started to spread. With bookings for clubs and events as Cherrymoon, Bassfase, ClubX, The Oh!… this artist will rock every event and style he comes across.
The Addiction aka MC Reign started his career in the hard dance scene in 2006. Mainly hosting hardcore events all over Belgium,Holland & Germany. His name is well known in this scene. His slogan "the wind makes clouds move,the moon makes oceans move but i make party people move".
eigenlijk voor ik met hem werkte wist ik niet veel van hem af maar na 2 keer samen te hebben opgetreden zal ik hem niet meer vergeten.
Een zeer goeie kerel met een mooie flow.
Een lekkere klank en gave lyrics.
Wat mij betreft een blijvertje in de scene.
Het was prettig samen te werken, op naar een nieuwe gig!!!
Respect and keep it hardcore!!
The first time we shared a stage was in Belgium at a small party called Dark in Niel. It was a great experience. MC Reign is a great performer and we need to see him more in the future! DJ s`Aphira
I shared a stage with MC Reign on Hardcore universe 2010 (LOTTO ARENA Antwerp/belgium) It was the greatest experience in my whole DJ history during hardcore universe 2010 the whole lotto arena went crazy by our beats and vocals from Reign. This was for me the greatest performance with MC Reign of course we share stages a couple of times a year but hardcore universe 2010 is the one I will never forget! Keep the belgian hardcore scene alive and kickin !Madnezz
