Peter Slaghuis (21 August 1961-5 September 1991) was the early 80s one of the first Dutch house DJs. As a producer and remixer of mostly older hits he makes in the first half of the 80 fast name.

In 1988, he was under the name Hithouse (a free translation of his name) his first big hit and best known song "Jack To The Sound Of The Underground", that grows into a world. "Jack To The Sound Of The Underground" is one of the first records with an acid sound in the mix. The Belgian label ARS picks the song and brings it out in England, where in October 1988 the eighth place of the UK Singles Chart outlet. From there it is a big hit in Europe, except in the Netherlands where only the 22th place achieved. Interesting detail: the sample that he used in his hit song, from "You're no good for me" (a hit of Charles Kelly), in 1994 by the Prodigy acquired in their song No Good, that soon the breakthrough for that group means.

The sequel to "Move your feet to the rhythm of the beat" sounded similar to its predecessor, and was already a big hit in 1989. With over a million copies sold of both singles, he founded a studio and started his own label (Hithouse Records), which his productions with acts releases.

Together with Paul Elstak and Rob Fabrie - Waxweazle / Headbanger Slaghuis worked on an album of the act Holy Noise. A year later the successor to the album "Organized Crime" from. The pulled their single "James Brown Is Still Alive" (as a reaction to the house classic "James Brown is Dead" by LA Style) retrieves the top 10 in the Dutch charts.
The Dutch house and sample pioneer crashed, however on 5 September 1991 with his car on the way home from a gig in Amsterdam. Shortly before he makes a remix of "Pump Up The Jam" by Technotronic.
