Hardwell began releasing bootleg remixes in 2009 and since then has made MTV’s EDM Artists to Watch list (alongside industry greats such as Alesso and R3hab), and has jumped up the noteworthy DJ Mag top 100 DJs list from #24 in 2011 to #6 in 2012. The 25-year-old Dutch progressive house DJ has blown up extremely quickly in the EDM industry and has recently come out with “Apollo” and “How We Do” which are currently club bangers all over the top party spots in the world. Hardwell has risen from humble beginnings to international notoriety. He began by being noticed by a major Dutch label at age 13 and is now producing his own radio show called Hardwell on Air that airs on satellite radio, international radio and is a popular iTunes podcast. Hardwell can be found at nightclubs in Las Vegas and Ibiza, where he boasts exclusive residencies at some of the biggest nightclubs in the world. The Dutch producer hails from the same town in the Netherlands as his mentor, the legendary Tiesto. He plays internationally at festivals such as Electric Daisy Carnival, Ultra Music Festival, and Tomorrowland, among others.
