In March of 2005 A.C. Chakur, better known as MC Apster, was discovered by MC Q who asked him to perform at an event called ‘Infected’ in Valkenburg, NL. At this party he vocally supported DJ’s Pavo, Darkraver, Fausto and met MC Renegade & Syco who inspired him to continue. After his first performance things quickly got out of hand. Over 50 bookings in less than 6 months! Being discovered by MC Syco (Eastside Underground) and Patrick Lahaye of UHM Events gave him the confidence to continue. This paid out in bookings throughout Holland and Germany which gave him the much needed experience to grow as a true Master of Ceremonies.
When Q-dance announced an MC Contest named ‘Q-Factor’ in 2006, MC Apster saw his chance to join and make his move. After sending in a demo-tape he got invited to the contest. During the following 5 month battle Apster made it into the final. In this final he left MC UB behind him and won, receiving a contract with Q-bookings and the recognition he worked so hard for.
Since, Apster has grown into a familiar face on stages both in Europe and abroad. Open to all styles electronic and beyond, this MC has shown his face among a diverse range of events. From house, electro and trance to the harder styles: hardcore, hardstyle, oldschool and techno. A skilled vocalist determined to bridge the gap between sound system and crowd.
Next to performing he invested time into the studio resulting in co-ops with several producers requesting his vocal skills to produce tracks and an album titled ‘Art of Hardstyle’ by The Overminds (Future Sound Corporation) featuring Italian and German producers. His tracks have appeared on many labels, including Jumpmasters, DJS records, Poseidon as well as ACTIVA from Italy and Belgian label DWX.
