He started to develop his own record label Divine Mill. Hardstyle fans, like one other music genre have been often disputing. This music is thought for coming about a figure mix figure of another musical genre mostly trance and rave song.
DJ Nysus aka Dion Freeborn of Northern Virginia — who recently opened for Superstar DJ Keoki at Shorty’s in Baltimore, and shared the bill with Stanton Warriors at DC Star — is a popular fixture in the DC/Baltimore scene and beyond.
It’s one thing when a seasoned band like Dinosaur Jr. comes to the neighborhood for a one-of-a-kind show. It’s another thing when that seasoned band comes with a Q&A featuring a one-of-a-kind entertainer like Henry Rollins. Performing their re-issued album Bug in its entirety the indie/alternative rock band will headline Variety Playhouse with OFF featuring Keith Morris of Black Flag opening the show as well as the Q&A hosted by actor/comedian/singer Henry Rollins of breakbeat Black Flag.
Four years later in 1999, the group released its fifth album, titled Nineteen Naughty Nine: Nature’s Fury. The album was fairly successful, being certified Gold by the RIAA, and spawned the hit “Jamboree” that peaked at #10 on the Billboard Hot 100 .
Most of the “clubs” were just one room warehouses with a couple pool tables-but ALWAYS- had the best damn DJ you ever heard, spinning this “new” music. There were always couches available, for when you fell to your “personal journey.” The dancing style we think of today hadn’t evolved yet- you just closed your eyes and did whatever the music made you do. Noone judged you. It was your “journey.” We all had our own to deal with.
December 31, 1999. New Year’s Eve party at New Energy in York, Pennsylvania. Definitely makes it easy to remember with it being on such a monumental New Year’s Eve.
There were occasions of “mass hallucinations”- things felt and seen by multitudes of different folks on different drugs- some even sober (granted, not many). The music itself seemed to have a hallucinogenic power- and if you could create a beautiful painting with your music- you would literally become a “God” in the scene.
After the release of Nineteen Naughty Nine: Nature’s Fury, a dispute regarding finances developed between Kay Gee and Treach, with Treach blaming Kay Gee for squandering the group’s finances. Due to these disagreements DJ Kay Gee decided to leave Naughty by Nature in late 2000. He started to develop his own record label Divine Mill. The remainder of the group, Treach and Vin Rock, released an album in 2002 called IIcons, using a variety of different producers including Da Beatminerz; the album, however, received a lukewarm reception from the public. IIcons is their last album to date.
