Born in Delft 1977 & raised in Wateringen. Wesley van Swol, better known as DJ Partyraiser, started his DJ career in 1993. He played at his first party in 1995 and in 1996 he entered and won his first DJ competition. He even got his own radio show at Radio Delta (Den Haag) together with D-Angelo in 1997. Wesley also started producing and Megarave Records released his first e.p. (Kick Da Balistics) and big parties like Megarave & the Queensday Rave followed. Imagine yourself dancing in the Energiehal, one of the best hardcore venue's ever and a few years later you're playing there yourself... WOW!!!
From that moment on things really took off, he had a lot of gigs all over Holland and was resident at many parties in Den Haag. Back then he used to teach young kids how to dj, but had to stop that because of his busy schedule. In 1999 he won his second DJ competition.In 2000&2001 it got even more hectic, as he also started playing other styles of house which led to a big party in Egypt, Hardcore 4 Life and of course The Thunderdome area at Nature One. He also played at the Fast Forward Parade in Rotterdam that summer and produced a few e.p.'s for A&A Music (The Order, We All Stand Together & Kaos In Texas).
In 2002 he organised some parties in Holland and went on tour in Texas & Oklahoma city in the U.S.A. In 2003 things really started rolling. Winning a hardcore-scratch DJ competition for the third time, he continued producing his own tracks. His tracks were licensed on Compilation-cd's like Nightmare, Megarave, Hellbound and he played on 3 big parties in Houston & Dallas in the U.S.A. (Show me what you got) and after that, a party in Chicago followed. In 2004, changing his style, he played all over Europe on a lot of big parties like Hellraiser, Judgement Day, Hardcore Gladiators, Speed Razor, Digital Overdose (Germany) and became resident dj for Multigroove, Hellbound & Volume. That year he also mixed the Hellbound 003 double cd which was sold out in 2 weeks.
