I am Hardwell... An icon is born ?

2013 will be wild for Hardwell. The #6 Dj in the world starts this year with many projects and events!

Last year, it was the year of his consecration by being elected the #6 Dj by Dj Mag, many #1 on Beatport, a label considered one of the most ambitious. In addition, we have seen him on the most prestigious Main Stages in the world. But where does this music lover stop?

Last week, he played at Nasimi beach ahead a crazy crowd, for his first time. He told me, 'I'm really nervous and exhisted'. He arrived only 4h before his djset! Dutch has bewitched the crowd. He was struggling to find a way through his fans who accosted for a photo at each step. Check out the pics of the party, here.

Few hours after Dubai, he had to return home in holland to celebrate the 100th podcast of Hardwell On Air, on, a famous Dutch radio station. It was possible to follow the 2 hours live show on Several dj made the trip to the studio of the radio, including Armin van Buuren. The best tweets and photos related to the radioshow or Hardwell were posted on the event website. Thanks to a very involved community of fans Hardwell was one of the most followed international trends. What a great reward for him, which applies each week to produce a podcast of the best releases and exclusives. The first part of the show was exclusively reserved for a retrospective of the best tracks of the old podcasts, the second part was an exploration of current tracks and exclusivity, as his new collab with Laidback Luke, called Dynamo. Also, he revealed a very important date for him, April 27, he will perform at Heineken Music Hall, Dutch mythical scene. According Hardwell, this date will be the culmination of the path he has run through.

Indeed, all ears are screwed to the Heineken Music Hall, the first gig of I am Hardwell Tour. This dj, stubborn to push up his own destiny at its peak, will conquer this mythical scene in Amsterdam where Armin van Buuren and his mentor Ti�sto, there are already played. What is the basic concept of I am Hardwell ? Creating a unique atmosphere, 'Made In' Hardwell, on the dancefloor and present electronic music in a different side.

As I write this article, Hardwell is in Canada with his friends Dannic & Dyro and its Tourmanager Robert. In fact, the Revealed Canadian Tour warms temperature of this large country with their beats and melodies that set fire on the dancefloors! They travel this beautiful country on a bus. Do not take it, nothing but the music will be out of this huge bus. According to my information, a glitch occurred during the second date of the tour because Dyro and manager just got kicked out while playing his set! #HolyShit!!!!

By the way, Hardwell has been nominated five times the IDMA awards in Miami : Best Podcast, Best Remixer, Best Radio Mix Show DJ (Global), Best European DJ and Best Electro Track! Don't miss and vote Hardwell :

I took the gamble, hardwell will be in the Top 5 Dj Mag 2013!
