In total we have got over 13.000 MIDI files in many different dance genres, such as house, progressive, bigroom, trance, future house, trap, hardstyle and electro.

Why do we exist?
The aim of our platform is to help producers and remixers all of the world to increase their creativity, productivity, inspiration and fun in the studio. We believe our MIDI files help to expand horizons and give insights in how different electronic dance songs are created, as well as help remixers save time figuring out chords and notes!
The history of Nonstop2k
Nonstop 2000 was founded by Ralph. This was one of the first and most active dance MIDI/community websites on the internet. The site went to earn many net awards from the likes of Angelfire, About dot com and others.
John started a MIDI thread at the well-known tranceaddict.com forums. This thread quickly become one of the most popular threads in the music production section. After a while however, most links to MIDI files where dead. This same year trance-midi.tk came to be. Starting with a mere 80 MIDI files the site grew rapidly to a place with over 800 MIDI files at the end of its first year!
Ralph and John decided to join forces and the same month a renewed Nonstop2k website saw the light. We introduced the forum and also went from manually updating HTML files to a PHP and database-driven website.
In July 2006 we had over 2000 visits on a single day for the very first time. This year November 30, was one of the most remarkable days in Nonstop history. We got a .com address: nonstop2k.com. After nearly 7 years there finally was a true home for Nonstop2k! From this moment on Nonstop2k has established its name as MIDI website and Producer's Resource.
We celebrated our 10.000th registered user!
We went social and started our facebook page in January. At the end of this year we also published our first interview
, with no less then Myon & Shane54.
, very first Nonstop2k royalty free MIDI pack was released.
The current version of the site was released: mobile friendly and lots of white instead of gray. Since it has seen quite a few minor updates and improvements.
We introduced credits
to download premium MIDI files
A word of thanks
Since we were founded in 2005 we feel honored to have interviewed artists such as Bassjackers, W&W, Rank 1 and Tritonal. We are happy to work with people from great sound design companies such as Vandalism and Alonso Sound and we are proud to still be delivering you dance music MIDI files to this day.
All of this wouldn't be possible without our most precious assets: you and all the producers who decided to help their fellow producers and upload their MIDI files. The ones who shared their tips and tricks and the ones who give feedback on each other’s music. Or the ones who just encouraged one another to finish that track. You all helped to shape this place to become what it is today. We salute you!
