Hardwell On Air

Throughout his expansive career as a successful DJ, producer, remixer, label boss, filmmaker, and philanthropist, former 2 x World No.1 DJ, Hardwell has carved out a long-lasting legacy within the electronic music world.

Hailing from Breda, a city tucked deep within the Netherlands, Hardwell's journey began at 14, becoming a much sought-after artist on the Dutch dance scene before international attention began to pour in. Fast forward ten years, and Hardwell, aged 25, capped off a perennial journey when he was first crowned World's #1 DJ in 2013. Already on his way to helping shape the EDM explosion at that time, Hardwell emerged as one of the most acclaimed stars of the modern era of electronic music.

His appeal as a producer would catapult his status amongst fans and peers. Hardwell would earn countless Beatport No. 1's with releases like 'Spaceman', 'Apollo' and 'Run Wild' through his dancefloor singles. Whilst remixing for many of pop music's biggest names, including Rihanna, Calvin Harris, Moby, U2, J Balvin, and Coldplay. At the same time, delivering crossover hit singles working alongside major acts like Craig David, Jay Sean, Austin Mahone, and Jason Derulo. And never straying too far from his electronic roots, Hardwell would collaborate with DJ friends like Armin van Buuren, Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike, Steve Aoki, Afrojack, and Tiësto.

His acclaimed 2015 album 'United We Are' proved to be a ground-breaking moment for Hardwell. A rich and diverse debut release, the album would secure the #2 position on the iTunes worldwide album chart.
On March 27th, 2022, after a hiatus from touring for a few years, Hardwell returned to Miami's Ultra Music Festival to perform a surprise closing set. Armed with a new 14-track artist album, REBELS NEVER DIE, released on Revealed Recordings and the announcement of a massive 24-date world tour, Hardwell ignited the attention of fans around the globe.

"I hate to be caught up in one particular genre. I always try to make music I love to play out. I don't consider myself a mainstream artist, techno, or big room artist, I consider myself Hardwell, and this is what Hardwell is. If it's not a genre, it's not a genre; it's just me."

Always a leader with a quest to evolve, not repeat. The REBELS NEVER DIE chapter of Hardwell's career is a critical point in the musical shift for one of electronic music's iconic artists.
