Amsterdam, October 21st 2011 – Yesterday, the critically acclaimed British DJ Mag announced that the 23-year-old Hardwell entered the DJ Mag Top 100 popularity poll at number 24. Hardwell can be seen as one of the most successful producers/DJ’s of the past few years. In 2010 and 2011, he’s had international successes with collaborations ‘Zero 76’ with Tiësto and ‘Move It 2 The Drum’ with Chuckie.
At the age of 13, a young Hardwell – real name Robbert van de Corput, started his DJ career. After years of building his name as a DJ, he scored his first big hit in 2008 with ‘Never Knew Love’. In 2009, he had his international breakthrough, with his ‘Show Me Love vs. Be’ bootleg, the classic of Robin S. and tracks by Steve Angello.
This past year, Hardwell has toured the entire globe, being invited to play at both the American tour as well as several nights of the Privilege Ibiza residency of Tiësto. In early 2011, Hardwell started his own weekly radio show on Dutch radio station SLAM! FM, ‘Hardwell On Air’. His track ‘Cobra’, which scored more than 100.000 views on YouTube within one week, has been crowned to the official theme song of ID&T event Energy – The Network.
In March 2010, the young talent started his very own Revealed Recordings label, in collaboration with Cloud 9 Music. After 1,5 years, Revealed can be seen as one of the leading label in the progressive-house scene. On the label, you won’t only find productions of Hardwell himself, but also tracks from new talents that fit the sound of Revealed. Last Wednesday, during ADE, the first club night of the label ‘Hardwell presents Revealed’ took place in a sold-out and excited Club Home in Amsterdam.
