Hardwell recently claimed two top spots at this year’s ‘DJ awards’ ceremony, held annually in Ibiza to recognise those that have left the biggest impression on the White Isle each year. Firstly, he celebrates a big year by retaining his ‘Big Room House’ title, having been pitted against the likes of David Guetta, Martin Garrix, Steve Aoki and The Chainsmokers.
Hardwell also regains the accolade of best ‘International DJ’, beating the likes of Armin van Buuren, Fatboy Slim, Deadmau5 and Martin Garrix once more to take top spot in that category, after performances across the island, including Amnesia, Hï Ibiza and Ushuaïa this year.
This year’s awards come off the back of another big year for the Dutchman. His profile was raised again after his collaboration with pop’s Austin Mahone on ‘Creatures Of The Night’, a track with over 20 million Spotify streams to date. He has also focused on pushing through fresh artists on his Revealed imprint.
Two ‘Hardwell & Friends’ EP’s have dropped this year, in edition to return performances as headliner at some of the world’s leading shows, including many international editions of the Ultra Music Festival across a number of continents. With another ‘World’s Biggest Guestlist’ show in India in the pipeline for the end of the year, and exciting new ventures to be revealed at Amsterdam Dance Event (ADE), there’s still lots more to come.
