This talented genius, better known as Robbert van de Corput started his DJ career at the age of 13. After this blow-out Hardwell’s talent was picked up by a Dutch label and they signed him when he was only 14 years old. Shortly after his label signing he st
arted to play at all mayor clubs in the Netherlands.
His growing reputation and success was picked up by party-minded people, they voted for him for the DJMAG Top 100 this year and he got a well deserved #24 spot in the Top 100 list, his first entry into their charts. They pinpointed him as one of the leaders of a new generation of DJs and unequivocally one to watch in the future. The growing momentum of his ‘fresh and open-minded’ label, Revealed Recordings, certainly proves their point, and fans can expect loads of exciting new releases very soon.
Hardwell’s international breakthrough came with his Show Me Love vs. Be bootleg of Steve Angello and Laidback Luke’s track and Robin S’ classic. That bootleg became one of the biggest and most played dance hits of 2009.
This year Hardwell has continued to produce top records such as Encoded, a track with a teaser that was viewed over 700.000 times on YouTube, reached the Beatport Top 10 and gained major support from the biggest DJs worldwide. And did we mention his collaboration with Tiësto on hit record Zero 76 in February 2011? This banger went to #1 on Beatport and received a huge amount of airplay worldwide.
Behind the decks Hardwell never fails to deliver. His exceptional technical skills, variety of music, distinguished looks and that added personal touch make him stand out. These days he’s bringing it to the masses, with performances all over the world from Sydney to Miami and Ibiza to London. Hardwell recently toured with Tiësto through North America and made his debut at one of the worlds biggest dance events, ‘Sensation’ in Prague, Czech and Denmark and he did a full tour in the USA and played at EDC/Electric Zoo. His own event, ‘Hardwell Presents Revealed’ is well on its way to setting clubs worldwide on fire and upcoming gigs include an Extended USA Tour and headlining Energy 2012 “The Network”, one of the biggest indoor events in Europe and of course Revealed night at Set Miami
Do we need to continue? It’s clear as a bell… There’s a new kid on the block, and he’s here to stay.
