After listening to Hardwell’s remix of Bella’s “Nobody Loves Me”, I decided to check out more of his stuff. This inevitably led me to “Encoded”, his debut single which was released in late April. All I have to say is, the Dutch are at it again. I can’t believe the Dutch and their ability to continuously blast brain cells out of my head with each beat. An onslaught of house, I tell you.

Blogger exaggeration aside, Hardwell’s music is definitely something to look out for. Only 23 years old, he has his own record label and he’s already lent his music prowess to do remixes for Nadia Ali, Flo Rida and Akon, Gareth Emery, and Alex Gaudino. And just to be sure that this guy was real and not some mirage, I decided to check out where he’s playing this year. Turns out he’ll be at Electric Zoo. Guess who’s going to be there screaming like the 15-year-old boy who was next to me last year when checking out Afrojack’s set? I’ll give you a hint – it won’t be that 15-year-old.
