Dyro becomes DJ Mag Top 100 highest new entry, plans focus on productions for 2014

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.”
