Born April 6, 1992, Terence de Jong discovered his passion for the Hardcore sound after visiting parties across the Netherlands. Events such as Masters of Hardcore, Q-BASE, Harmony of Hardcore and Defqon.1 struck home, and it wasn’t long before the desire to make music took over. As his fascination grew further, he started a new project which we now know as Restrained. With full focus on producing, he became addicted to every element of the process, discovering sounds and moving further with each musical endeavour.
2015 saw an incredible string of highlights for the talented Dutch producer. Beginning the year with a bang, he was crowned the winner of a Neophyte Records remix competition and received incredible feedback from the world-renowned label. Continuing to strive for perfection in the studio paid off, resulting in a feature on the famed This is Hardcore album and a highly popular free release entitled “Russian Roulette”. His musical achievements earned him a spot at Decibel Outdoor Festival, at which he destroyed the Hardcore4life crowd.
His climb to the top is gathering pace in 2016, with the news he has signed to Neophyte Records. Kicking things off with an incredible 3 track EP and receiving support from some of the scene’s biggest names, it’s clear to see things are moving fast for Restrained. Keep your eyes open for more music, performances and exciting things to come!
