Hardwell in the Mix “Eclecti Beatz 8” on Cloud 9 Dance, Netherlands
DJ, producer, labelmanager, music lover and only at the age of 22…
Let us present to you: Hardwell!
A boy who takes his love for house music very serious, is step by step and gradually becoming a leading figure amongst the younger generation of DJs. Though Hardwell could never have dreamed what laid ahead of him when starting his DJ career at the tender age of 13.
For the last 2 years, Hardwell?s overall talent is recognised by the dance music industry as a new, exciting and refreshing take on a scene that continues to evolve and with an apparent everlasting shelf life! If you want to describe Hardwell?s identity and musical development in one phrase then it can be no other than that he?s now arrived in the ?Big Room House? sound and has created his very unique trademark as a dj and producer.
His latest release, ?Feel so High? ft I-Fan, has been licensed to 10 countries, has had great support from the biggest names in the scene and comes with an amazing video! ?Guess What?, a co-production with Chuckie,is likely to be one of the most played underground house records of the past two years and his ?Show Me Love vs. Be? bootleg of Steve Angello and Laidback Luke?s track was one of the biggest dance hits of last year. In 2009 he played at Mainstage, Dancevalley, the biggest festival in Holland where he was also responsible for that years themesong ?Twilight Zone?.
Did we mention the remixes he did for some top DJs of the DJ Mag Top 100, such as Fedde Le Grand, Armin van Buuren, Tiesto, Bob Sinclar, Chris Lake, Funkerman, Laidback Luke, Sharam (Deep Dish), Steve Angello, Booty Luv and Hi_Tack?
On top of this pronounced success stories, Hardwell has also topped the leading Dutch chart ?Dance-Tunes.com? a grand total of 8 times in the past 12 months.
Not to forget, last summer he has also mixed the Privilege Ibiza Compilation next to Cosmic Gate.
Also, Hardwell’s series of “Eclectic Beatz” belong to the best selling mix albums of the last few years. The final edition (#10) will be released April 2010! Need we go on?
Behind the decks Hardwell never fails to deliver, his exceptional technical skills, variety of music and that added personal touch make him stand out, and he?s bringing it to the masses now, with performances all over the world! From Sydney to Miami, Amsterdam to London.
There?s a new kid on the block, and he?s here to stay.
With a new creative channel, his own record label Revealed Recordings, once again Hardwell appears to have the world at his feet. The kick off with the first releases will be in April 2010! Stay Tuned!

Bingo Players (Paul Bäumer & Maarten Hoogstraten) have been left gasping for air after a seriously hectic year with bookings in the Netherlands and abroad. Outgrowing local bingo halls to play with the big ballers of the game has been the result of their hard work and devotion. The Bingo Players appear to have been made for each other, the proof of which came in November 2009, when the DJ/producer duo topped the Beatport overall chart for a second time with their remake of the dance floor classic, “Devotion”, which stayed on no. 1 for two weeks and over a month in the top 10!
Back in 2008 the Bingo Players were still experiencing the extensive aftermath of their UHM & Tony Flexx – “Our House” remix. The cooperation with Chocolate Puma on the legendary label Strictly Rhythm/Defected, “Touch Me” was released and gained support all over. If that wasn’t enough, it also hit Beatport’s chart number one position! “Touch Me” then appeared on various compilations, like Defected In The House and Sensation White.
After that, Dutch house mogul, ErickE’s “Wanna Go Again”, was treated with the inner Bingo and this remix hit the Dance Tunes top position and was inserted in the CD machines of Noir, Sander van Doorn and Patric La Funk amongst others. In September 2008 “Get Up” hit the shelves following a huge buzz and support from Laidback Luke, A Trak, Crookers and made it onto the 2008 I LOVE TECHNO! compilation, mixed by Boys Noize.
Their next release “Chop” was a massive club hit, reaching no. 2 on the Beatport charts and remained in the top 10 for weeks. After that, their remixes for Joachim Garraud (Are You Ready), Sir James (Special), Ron Caroll (Bump To Dis) and Kristine W (Feel What You Want) were also big tunes and huge Beatport favourites.
2009 saw a new collaboration with Chocolate Puma on a track called “Disco Electrique”, which shot to no. 2 in the Beatport Chart. Internationally revered as ‘hot from Holland’ the Bingo’s year was full of incredible bookings in clubs worldwide along with several appearances at big international festivals such as Creamfields in the UK.
It’s no surprise then that nowadays every DJ supports the Bingo sound. Think of names like David Guetta, Axwell, Fedde Le Grand, Martin Solveig, Laidback Luke, Roger Sanchez, Sander Van Doorn, Sebastian Ingrosso and many more. The Bingo Players are the living proof things can take a sudden turn for the better! So what’s next you might wonder? Enough… their next release “No. 1 Disco” will be out soon as well as new remixes for Fedde Le Grand, Mastiksoul and Martin Solveig. With focus on dominating the world of bingo in 2010, hold on to your bingo cards; it’s game time!
