After realising his life long dream of becoming the World’s #1 DJ, the young pioneering Dutch star that is Hardwell has spent much of the past 12 months tour trotting the world taking his addictive blend of progressive and electro sounds to audiences everywhere from Australia to America, wowing both new and old fans alike. His music has dominated club and radio charts the world over, whilst his live sets continue to amass staggering viewing figures in the millions. A firm fan favourite, as shown by the growing following he has accumulated on his social sites, Hardwell’s name has now been put forward by those very people on the dancefloor once more, this time in the fan-led nomination of MTV’s European Music Awards.
Competing in the category for the ‘Best Dutch Act‘, ‘Best World Stage Performance‘ and ‘Best Electronic Act‘, is an indicator to the level to which Hardwell and his very club-focused sound has grown during these past few years.
2013/14 has been a grand arrival to the highest tier of the electronic scene for dance music’s newest titan. The Revealed Recordings boss and IAMHARDWELL tour figure has leaped from city to city leaving a devastatingly buzz-friendly effect in his wake. From sell-out world tours to bursting festival mainstage appearance the musical figure and dance icon known as Hardwell has delivered some of the summer’s biggest sets and singles. From igniting crowds at the magical setting of Tomorrowland with four mainstage performances (including a special back-to-back with Tiesto over each weekend) to the one-in, one-out arena show he put on at Creamfields (during his Revealed Recordings stage host), no stage has been left untouched. EDC Vegas and New York, Ultra Music Festival Miami and Europe, Mysteryland, Future Music Festival, TomorrorwWorld (2013 edition), Sensation and on and on, Hardwell’s tour diary has been littered with an exciting run of the world’s biggest and best parties, and along the way he has taken his fans on a musical journey filled with passion and the best quality electronic music around.
Delivering original single hits like ‘Dare You‘ with Matthew Koma or his recent single ‘Arcadia‘ with Joey Dale feat Luciana, as well as remix classics like his cut of Coldplay’s ‘Sky Full Of Stars‘, the prodigious producer knows how to deliver a smash record, having scored 8 straight Beatport #1’s in the past year alone.
The 2014 edition of the MTV EMA’s will be held in Glasgow on November 9th. Voting is now open!
