Blogs started out as web logs where a single person posted their thoughts and opinions. As the center of the online EDM world, they have grown into self-sufficient communities with features, interviews, reviews, and large social media followings. To spread the word about releases and tours, there is no better or quicker avenue than blogs. With this kind of influence comes a great deal of responsibility for the writers – freedom of bias, curation, credibility, etc. This panel will cover these issues, along with what the future will hold with forthcoming consolidation, online media, upcoming trends, and international influences.

3:00 PM – Featured Q & A – Hardwell

Room: A-208

Music maturity came swiftly for the now seasoned-veteran Robbert van de Corput, better known as Hardwell. At the age of 25, the young Dutch titan capped off a 10 year journey when he was crowned Worlds No.1 DJ cementing his position as the electronic scenes newest superstar DJ and becoming the youngest ever winner of the coveted Top 100 DJs award. Having first established his name at the tender age of 14, Hardwell has since elevated his clubland standing to impressive, dizzying heights. Through his refreshing sound that is characterized by complex drum ensembles, daring synths, and emotive chords, Hardwell has created the ultimate recipe for Big Room House. The fresh and open-minded approach he has taken with his label Revealed Recordings has led to the imprint gaining international momentum and having produced a cluster of hits since its inception back in 2010, as well as giving rise to a new generation of artists that include Dyro, Dannic, Julian Calor, Thomas Newson and Kill The Buzz. Another success in the labels armory is its celebrated compilation series Hardwell Presents Revealed which offers listeners a true box ready taste into the current trends at the heart of the labels musical output. In April 2013 Hardwell launched his most ambitious project to date when he unveiled his I Am Hardwell world tour concept at Amsterdams Heineken Music Hall to a 6000 capacity crowd. A spectacle of unprecedented musical vision and production detail, the entire show was broadcast live on a HD feed to 100,000s of fans around the world and placed a solid marker to the immense popularity of Hardwells position within the dance community. The rise of Hardwell has become an inspiring tale for all. Coming full circle from a dream to reality of wanting to become the #1 DJ in the World, we can be assured that the Hardwell name, face, and brand is a force that will drive electronic dance music for years to come. Bring your questions and join us as WMC proudly presents an intimate question and answer session with Hardwell.
