It’s no secret that Holland has earned a reputation for birthing a plethora of top-tier modern electronic music talent, as if a synthesizer is standard by the side of every crib. Since 2011, the county’s own Dyro has been steadily rising to the top of the charts and into countless DJ sets with continued support from Hardwell and Revealed Recordings. The Dutch electro-juggernaut has most recently stirred up buzz by claiming the #30 spot on DJ Mag’s Top 100 DJ rankings, marking the highest new entry position in the competition’s history. Perhaps to celebrate, Dyro gives us a big taste of the sound that brought him here. “Go Down” is festival-sized big room banger with a fast progression build-up that leads to an intense drop with the power to make any crowd go absolutely nuts. Consistent but certainly no one trick pony, the young producer shows no signs of slowing down or breaking away from a style he truly owns.

On Saturday, Dutch breakout Dyro became the highest new entry in the DJ Mag Top 100 poll, debuting at number 30 and cementing yet another excuse for Revealed Recording to celebrate – the first reason of course being the installation of Hardwell as the poll’s overall champion. Just moments after being crowned the highest new entry of the 2013 poll at Amsterdam RAI, Dyro told Dancing Astronaut: “This is an absolute honor for me. I am feeling great. It is all still a little bit surreal and I could never have thought it would be this high. You start thinking about the numbers and then all the social media hype kicks in, but I could never have guessed it would be this big for me in 2013.”
The announcement comes at the tail end of one of his biggest years to date, which saw the young Dutch breakout don his first Beatport number one alongside Hardwell for “Never Say Goodbye” as well as an extended streak of visibility on the global clubbing circuit. When asked about the pressures of his profile growing so rapidly throughout the year, he explained: “The pressure is getting bigger and it is harder to actually find time to get into the studio. I am not complaining, but this year it got very hard to get in the studio, but with time you work out how to balance the touring and recording element. Most importantly, this is still fun, even as it gets harder.”
With his next Revealed Recordings offering “Go Down” unleashed upon the digital market today, the year ahead looks to be no quieter for Dyro and his persuasive industry overhaul. With talk of his first North American solo tour and impending collaborations from the likes of poll-entering peers Dannic and Shermanology, new music looks to be an obvious focus for 2014. Posed with the task of offering advice to artists who aspired to ascend the industry in the same vein, Dyro offered the following advice: “The most important bit is to believe in yourself. If you are just starting out – look at your music as a learning process. You don’t have to release everything you make. Some tracks just end up being a vital piece of the puzzle for your learning curve. You have to accept it and use the elements that did work in moving forward.”Posted by

Now in its 25th year, Amsterdam Dance Event continues to draw artists, professionals and fans from across the globe to celebrate the electronic dance music industry. To commemorate 25-years of dance music in the Netherlands and the ongoing relevance of the annual conference, DA turned to some of the nation’s finest musical assets to tell the unique story of Dutch dance music from the mouths of the artists that have kept in such high esteem. At the tail-end of his most prolific year to date, Hardwell tops off our series with his take on the global overhaul of Dutch dance music.
Nearly two years ago to this date, Hardwell showcased some of his then-rookie artists with Revealed Recordings‘ Talent Revealed EP. With that extended play came the introduction of Dyro, whose career has since been incubated with the imprint and is now one of dance music’s biggest young successes. Now back with the second installment of Talent Revealed, released today, Hardwell is making way for more potential stars. In the spotlight this time around are efforts from Julian Calor, Row Rocka, and Lush & Simon — names you’re probably not familiar with yet, but may very well break through after this Hardwell-sponsored push. The three-track outing builds on Revealed’s signature sound, so listen for yourself – maybe you’ll catch the next Dyro.Posted by
Hardwell‘s dominance of 2013 has been impossible to ignore since claiming the year as his own at Ultra Music Festival this March. The then-unidentified hits that filled his landmark set have been slowly revealing themselves over the past seven months, with their impact strengthening exponentially with each subsequent release. Through the summer months particularly, his Dyro collaboration “Never Say Goodbye,” work with W&W on “Jumper,” and remixes for the likes of Krewella and Mark Knight have put chart-topping aspirations of electronic contemporaries out of reach as the young producer has run full steam ahead.
Adding another anthem to his catalogue of hits, Hardwell has finally released his collaboration with MAKJ, “Countdown,” which has been on the clock since the aforementioned Ultra appearance. Many of the recent big room records that have taken dance floors by storm pale in comparison to the festival-ready elements of “Countdown,” as Hardwell and MAKJ deliver provocatively on all ends. One listen through answers any question of hype and even sends a reminder of what a proper main stage staple should sound like.
Hardwell’s Revealed Recordings is back in the wake of with volume two of its Talent Revealed EP series. Two years down the line from the inauguration of the series and in the build up to Hardwell & MAKJ’s impending collaboration, Revealed bands together three of its more poignant secret weapons ahead of Amsterdam Dance Event. Dutch youngster Julian Calor leads proceedings with uplifting yet heavy-hitting “Space Dial,” leaving 16-year-old talent Row Rocka to shed his new school stripes with a festival primed cut primed for the label’s soundscope. Italian duo Lush & Simon conclude the second strike of this new talent marathon with melodic electro set-piece “Adrenaline,” asserting that after one of their most prolific years to date, Revealed Recordings have a firm eye set on the future of their craft.

In line with his recent inauguration to Toolroom Records renowned Toolroom Knights compilation series, fast-ascending Dutch talent DANNIC unveils a brand new original to ornament this considerable career landmark. Having balanced ongoing affairs with Revealed Recordings for “Rocker” and more recently turned his hand to The Wanted’s “We Own The Night,” Dan Romers hold on the peak time skyline was unlikely to be disputed at the final quarter of 2013. “Bring The Funk,” however, is enough to bruise any misconceptions that this young Dutch trailblazer has rested upon creative laurels in the face of global admiration. In an amalgamation of sharp lead work and strong melodic progressions, DANNIC adds eclecticism to an otherwise seamless track record at the tail end of his most independent and accomplished year on record.

Since its Ultra Music Festival premiere back in March, Hardwell‘s collaboration with MAKJ has been one of the most anticipated unreleased records in dance music. Nearly six months later, the tandem have officially unveiled the mastered preview for “Countdown,” proving it to be as massive as it had sounded from Ultra’s Main Stage. This certified festival-rocker comes tested and proven as the ideal Revealed Recordings follow up to “Jumper,” a similar collaboration alongside W&W.Posted by
