Hardwell’s North American Bus Tour Continues



Hardwell has been topping charts and setting his name in stone as one of the best DJs in the world. For those of you who don’t know him, it’s about time you do… at least a little bit.

Robbert van de Corput, a.k.a. Hardwell, is a big room house DJ hailing from the Netherlands. His career started at the age of 12 when he DJed his friend’s birthday party. That was his first ever gig. With the help of his parents, Hardwell began to DJ at numerous clubs between 14 and 18 years of age. His parents were the only way he would be allowed into the clubs. This was about the time he had his first record signing, at 14 years old. Fast forward to 2008, Hardwell claimed the #1 spot six times in a row on the Dutch dance chart… yes six times in a row! In 2010, Hardwell moved up from the local club scene for a shot to play at Privilege in Ibiza for Tiesto’s Club Life event. That year also sprouted Revealed Recordings, Hardwell’s very own record label which now is home to a handful of artists such as Dyro and W&W.

For those of you who enjoy listening to BPM on Sirius XM, you may have heard of “Hardwell On Air”, which is Hardwell’s weekly aired show. What started as a Podcast in 2011, has now grown to become one of the Top 10 Podcasts on iTunes in over 40 countries, and is now broadcasted to over 65 international radio stations. His collaboration with Tiesto on “Zero 76”, which claimed #1 on Beatport, helped him to earn the #24 spot on DJ Mag’s Top 100 DJs.

“Spaceman” was released in 2012 (I urge you to check out the Carnage remix), which has been remixed more times than you can count with your hands and was his biggest solo-track. 2012 also brought Hardwell the honor of playing main stage at Tomorrowland, which he has been a contender of every year since then. He entered the DJ Mag Top 100 again, except this time he took the #6 spot. The 2013 DJ Mag Top 100 was a different story though, Hardwell claimed the #1 spot over the five time in a row winner, Armin van Buuren. This was the same story for 2014, claiming #1 yet again.

Today, Hardwell continues to release chart topping tracks, with the most recent release being “Blackout”. His tours are massive; consider the I Am Hardwell tour, where the entire first phase sold out, and again with the Canadian Bus Tour with Dyro and Dannic, which was a nationwide sell-out. Now Hardwell is knocking on our doors with his North American Bus Tour, accompanied by Thomas Newson and Kill The Buzz.

Be sure to get your tickets fast! Hardwell is someone you don’t want to miss out on!

Event Preview: Skrillex To Headline At The Bluestone (Columbus, OH) W/ Bro Safari & Valentino Khan!

Skrillex - Columbus OH

Skrillex will arrive in Columbus, Ohio on November 12th for his Fall Club Tour. Any person holding a ticket is undoubtedly ecstatic to take part in the high energy, bass pounding show that DJ/producer Sonny Moore brings to each set. The tour is compiled of a focused blitz of sold-out concerts that only span nine dates; Five in America, and four in Europe. A blinding barrage of lights and thundering bass will curate a memorable experience, but it is the supporting talent that pushes the tour even further.

 Currently in the midst of his Animal House Tour, Bro Safari has quite the resume and his sets will without question set the tone for Skrillex. Bro Safari is the dubstep moniker of tenured DJ Nick Weiller. Weiller has been throwing down sets over the past decade under different stage names and styles. Evol Intent was a three man drum & bass act, which was comprised of Weiller, Ashley Jones and Michael Diasio. Weiller then embarked on a mashup project with Kill the Noise called Ludachrist. The current Animal release by Bro Safari and UFO! is a free download, and is sure to receive heavy rotation across the U.S.

 Valentino Khan may not be a household name, but he has production credits for a wide array of A-List artists including B.o.B, T.I., 2 Chainz, Bruno Mars and Tyga. Official remixes have been produced for Kreayshawn, The Bloody Beetroots, Benny Benassi as well as many more notable acts. One project worth highlighting is Mark the Throne, a complete remix of the Watch the Throne album by Jay Z & Kanye West. The project showcases Valentino’s eclectic style, and only further cemented his name on the list of top EDM producers. Valentino’s work embodies the EDM crossover into hip hop & pop music.

 Between the aforementioned acts, the Fall Club Tour boasts one of the most impressive lineups of the fall. The assembled talent carries considerable significance to the EDM scene. Each night of the tour will be comparable to a raver’s oasis. From the opener to the closer, each artist has left an impactful footprint in their own right. The tour is only a testament for what is yet to come for EDM.
