Smash hits like “Apollo” and “Spaceman” paved the way for Hardwell’s
ascent to DJ Mag’s
#1 DJ in the world. Continuing with the celestial theme, it’s appropriate that Hardwell took to the skies to campaign to retain his title of #1 DJ. The 11 1/2 minute video tells the story of Hardwell and his friends crafting a bet before the results of DJ Mag’s Top 100 DJs 2014 were announced. The bet went like this: If Hardwell won the title of #1 DJ, his friends said he would have to face his fear of skydiving and jump out of a plane. If he didn’t win, he could stay safely on the ground. As fate would have it, Hardwell won the poll and became the world’s #1 DJ. Check out the video to see Hardwell, his three best friends and Mattijs van Welzenis, the label manager of Revealed Recordings, freefall into the sky.
The polls are open for the 2015 Top 100 DJs so be sure to cast your vote!
