Hardwell once again stopped by the BBC Radio 1 Studios to get behind the decks of Pete Tong's Radio 1 broadcast. Recently voted the 6th Best DJ in the World by the infamous DJ Mag poll, this Holland-based producer has been putting out electro/big room hybrids since he first got his start in 2007. In the last 2 years, with tracks like "Spaceman" and collaborations with Tiesto and Nicky Romero, Hardwell has seen a meteoric rise to superstardom, one that was fueled by his bootleg-heavy sets and the type of indescribable style that he himself-proclaims as "Hardwell music." On his second essential mix, Hardwell showcases is prowess for dismantling and reassembling familiar tracks with surprisingly unique results. Countless bootlegs and mash-ups, like his combination of REM's "Losing My Religion" with "Three Triangles," make up the foundation of the mix. Featuring cuts from his own Revealed Recordings artists and his upcoming track "Apollo," Hardwell's Essential Mix is big room at it's best. If there was any doubt that his placement at #6 was ill-deserved, this essential mix should squelch any non-believers.
