At the age of 17 Timon van Merriënboer aka Profite was the youngest artist ever to get signed by Fusion Records. This hardstyle prodigy only started to make music three years earlier. His first release on Fusion, ‘Spilt Second’, made clear Timon is THE new guy you have to keep your eyes on.

And yes, all eyes sure were on him. Apparently the talented young producer made such a good impression on the scene some even felt threatened. Within a week after Profite’s first release Fusion received a message from a hardstyle veteran with a slightly similar name. This veteran claimed Profite sounded too much like his name and he demanded Timon should change his artist name.
