At the beginning of the 90's the then 'unusual' style of techno captured his imagination and he realised that here was a sound he'd been searching for. The futuristic themes matched his interests in science fiction and the rhythmic structures of techno, unlike any other music before, made him feel like dancing.
He was fascinated by all of the new, previously unheard sounds and was keen to understand how to create them. Soon, he'd bought his own computer, learned about music programs and eagerly set about making his own music. After years of experimentation and a long search for his own sound, he made his first digital release on Sublogic Corporation, a digital record label.
The positive reaction to the release, encouraged him to circulate a few demo’s and within 2 weeks he'd signed his first contract with Dj Misjah’s X-Trax Records.
In 2003 he released his first 12” record; “Sweets EP” on X-trax under his guise “Forcesupreme”. His unique, bombastic and energetic style was highly appreciated by DJ’s like Marco Carola, Carl Cox and Adam Beyer.
Currently, the young talent has records released through Gem, Global Underground, Rennaisance, X-trax and Beef and has remixed work from artists such as Ferry Corsten, Dj Misjah and Melvin Reese. A pretty impressive discography for a guy of his years.
WHAT WE SAY:
“Peter Horrevorts is one of those rare artists who are NOT constantly flooding the market with hundreds of digital releases. Instead of that he is focusing on a real quality output. Pretty much every single track and remix that Peter does is getting hand picket by the worlds biggest DJs and licensed for respected compilation series on labels such as Ministry Of Sound, Global Underground and Renaissance.
His latest remix work for Beef records compilation Prime Cuts III reached top chart positions on Beatport and chart support from Fedde Le Grand and Alex Kenji. Remix of Steve Ward for Chameleon Recordings is getting hammered by Nick Warren, Christian Smith and Umek. Even Carl Cox is aware of this talent and gave Peter a chance to perform live on the Carl Cox Global radio show.”

Dj Schwa (Shades Of Gray, Beef records)
At the end of 2005, Schwa rapidly changed his style and the idea of an innovative techno/house label became reality and thus established the foundation for “BEEF Records.” BEEF records has since then been slowly establishing itself as one of the hottest labels on the tech/house scene with release from respected artists such as Robert Babicz, Deepchild, Kreon, Jet Project, Arnaud Le Texier, Shur-i-kan, Pezzner, Mike Monday…
Schwa’s sets are not strictly one style oriented; he combines sounds that progressively flow from deeper shades of house to techno rhythms. Schwa’s unique mixing and track selection has resulted in a particularly massive following throughout Japan, Germany, Czech Republic, Hungary, France, Austria, New Caledonia, New Zealand, Slovakia and Australia. Schwa has performed at huge international festivals such as “Open Air Field” (Czech Republic), “Parihaka” (New Zealand), “No Mans Land Festival” (Hungary), “Rainbow Serpent” (Australia), “Earthcore Carnival” (Australia), Good Vibrations (Australia) and while touring Asia Michal had a chance to perform at the biggest club in Japan – Ageha.
Schwa supported Djs/projects such as: Gui Boratto, Jimpster, Minilogue, Extrawelt, D-Nox, Propellerheads, Dj T, Jamie Jones, Ripperton, Alex Smoke, Antix, Orbital, Chemical brothers, Steve Angello, Deepchild, Kasey Taylor, Future Sounds of London, System 7, Paul Van Dyk, Ferry Corsten, Heidi, Tim Green and many more.
