Named two consecutive years best DJ on the planet, Hardwell keeps producing new creations to stay on top of electronic music.

The young producer discovered this type of music when he was 10. Two years later Hardwell knew how to DJ and at the age of 16 he already had released some of his songs. Improving everyday in their productions, in 2007 he made a remix with the renowned DJ R3hab which became number 1 in Dance-Tunes.com. In 2008 he made a bootleg, an edition of a work already done by another famous artist, with Show Me Love by Robin S and Be, the famous DJs LaidbackLuke and Steve Angello. The bootleg liked so much to the DJs that the producers of Be and Robin S. decided to reissue it. Thanks to this, the famous DJ Hardwell got to act in the most important electronic music festival in their country. In 2010, when he was only 22 and he already had an established fame, he created his own label under the name Revealed Recordings, one of the most important electronic music labels today.

In 2011, Hardwell launched a musical collaboration with one of his idols and references, DJ Tiesto. It was called Zero76, the code of the city of Breda, Dutch city where they both come from. From that year, the famous DJ launched several outstanding songs such as Spaceman, his greatest success, an instrumental song where he after added the voice of the famous singer Mitch Crown, Apollo with Amba Shepherd and Dare you, with American songwriter Matthew Koma. In 2015, Hardwell released his very first music album of studio, United We Are, eagerly awaited by the entire community of electronic music.

In the images, it appears a much younger Hardwell in a TV interview in his country saying he wants to become the number one in the world. Thus, as himself already had predicted, the Dutch DJ Hardwell was named best DJ in the world in 2013 and 2014, seeing his dream fulfilled.
