Regarded as one of the founding fathers of the Future House movement, it is evident why Dutch DJ/producer Don Diablo is seen as a pioneer of the dance music world. Currently #7 in the DJ Mag Top 100 Poll – making him the highest placing artist in the Future House category – Don has earned praise from talent and tastemakers across the globe for major hits such as “On My Mind”, “Universe”, “AnyTime”, “Chemicals” and “Cutting Shapes” and most recently released his sophomore album FUTURE in the beginning of 2018.
Nick van de Wall, who we know today as the famous Afrojack, transformed his underground popularity into a world-renowned fame. Starting off in his hometown of Spijkenisse, Holland, Afrojack quickly made a name for himself with numerous releases and the unveiling of his hit single “Take Over Control” in 2011, which rapidly topped the charts and dominated club scenes all around the world.
With two Grammy awards under his belt, Afrojack is now considered one of the greatest artists in the electronic music industry, spending much of his time and effort producing house music for fans in various countries across the globe.
From a young age, Coone has been mesmerized by music in all its different shapes and forms.
The creation of his successful label Dirty Workz was a huge step in this young man’s carreer, allowing him to take his music beyond even his own expectations and also giving new talents within the Hard Dance scene a respectable platform to launch new and exciting sounds into the scene.
As collaborations with some of Hardstyle’s biggest names rolled in, Coone was able to impress the world with his unique sound within Hardstyle, imprinting a distinct signature sound into his productions.

Record producer, musician, remixer and DJ Mike Williams is known as a great talent in the dance music industry. From the first note that he has ever written to the smallest detail in his live shows; the commitment toward everything that his fans get to experience is seemingly endless. As one of the very few artists to break through with a signature sound it has been the distinctive ‘bounce’ that Mike Williams’ has perfected since. While this was the start of a whirlwind adventure within the global electronic music scene Mike’s true trademarks have always been a sense of serenity and his ever-present modesty. Recently he signed to the world-renowned Spinnin’ Records, marking the beginning of a new chapter following a lifetime passion for music. In 2018, he released the single “Lullaby” with R3hab and his own track “Give It Up”.
As Nick Rotteveel he grew up with his family in Amerongen, The Netherlands and Kingston, Canada. His trademark sound of progressive house blended with electro and acid can be heard in numerous singles such as “Legacy”, “Symphonica”, “I Could Be The One” and “Right Now”. In 2008, he began releasing his independently produced music on Protocol Recordings and released a bootleg of David Guetta’s “When Love Takes Over”. From there, his career took off with worldwide performances at every major dance festival and collaborations with Blasterjaxx, NERVO, Vicetone and many others.
At a young age, Quintino was discovered by house music mastermind Laidback Luke who was impressed by Quintino’s precision and unrivaled ability behind the turntables. Quintino will always bring good vibes and a lot of energy with his sets. After conquering the Dutch club scene, the young DJ started making big steps.
In 2011, Quintino released ‘Epic’ with Sandro Silva which became platinum. In the past two years, Quintino released major hits like ‘Freak’ and ‘I Just Can’t’ together with fellow Dutchman R3hab, which both passed 50 million streams, followed up by great collaborations with Cheat Codes and Nervo. 2017 was a great year for Quintino. He dominated the dancefloors with his solo club tracks ‘Underground’, ‘Carnival’ and his GO HARDER EP series.
He also dropped an exciting new tune with his solo release ‘Good Vibes’. 2018 couldn’t have started any bigger for Quintino releasing another track with Hardwell called ‘Woest’, a follow up on their earlier collaborations ‘Baldadig’ and ‘Scorpion’. On top of that he dropped two collaborations ‘Slow Down’ and ‘Patser Bounce’ with Dimitri Vegas and Like Mike. His successful career has led to Quintino being listed in the DJMAG top100djs for four years in a row.
Sunnery James and Ryan Marciano, two notable personalities with a single goal: to entertain as many people as possible with their deep and funky house sound. From the moment they entered the DJ profession, they agreed to do something serious with their common passion: House Music! Quickly after their first gig together Sunnery and Ryan established themselves as top DJs. Accustomed to renowned labels, they released “SOTU” in March 2013, collaboration with Nicky Romero, on the label of Steve Angello. This track was a success and ranked at number 2 on Beatport. Both DJs are of Surinamese descent.
Sem Vox is everywhere, with tracks supported by Diplo, Afrojack, Martin Garrix and many more there is no doubt left. His years of experience in making people dance are widely respected and praised upon. Rocking stages on festivals like Creamfields and Mysteryland is something that goes naturally for him. When he is not flying around the world playing alongside artists like Skrillex and Martin Garrix, he also runs the event Don’t Let Daddy Know as one of its founders. The concept that started in Ibiza is growing out to a world wide brand just like Sem Vox.
Third Party is a pair of childhood friends, consisting of Jonnie Macaire and Harry Bass, who have allowed their music to do all their talking, and as a result has brought them plenty of acclaim. Along the way, some of their biggest cuts have been breakout tracks like “Release” – a call to the dance floor that got played far and wide. After the success of that record, the pair hooked up with none other than Swedish House Mafia legend Steve Angello, with whom they produced the track “Lights”, before “Feel” was later released alongside Cicada, followed by “Thank You”, their debut on Ultra Music. Third Party also worked with Martin Garrix on the track “Lions in the Wild”. In 2017 they released their album “HOPE” with amazing progressive house tracks, combining the music with a brand-new live show. Much more is expected from this exciting pair as they continue to create unique and heavy dance music.
Tim Smith, aka Timmy Trumpet, is a musician, main room house DJ and producer based in Sydney, Australia. He made his big break in Ibiza, playing live trumpet solos over electronic dance music tracks during DJs shows. Moreover, he has supported and played alongside acts like Armin van Buuren, Carl Cox, Fedde Le Grand, Dizzee Rascal and Fatboy Slim. Now as a combined DJ/instrumentalist, he is ranked in the Top 3 DJs in Australia (ITM Poll), performed at Pacha Ibiza and Miami’s WMC. Rightfully dubbed “the busiest DJ in Australia” Timmy averages 7 flights a week, juggling over 200 shows per year, including major festivals and international super clubs.
Whether it be crafting infectious melodies with their transcendent originals and innovative remixes or their electrifying crowds with their energetic sets, The Him are the international dance force to be reckoned with.
Hailing from the dance capital of the world, Amsterdam, the Dutch team of Jeroen Kerstens and Steven Berghuijs formed their partnership in 2015 when they started working together in the studio. What started with doing monthly bootlegs soon turned into serious hits with originals like “Feels Like Home” and “I Wonder”, both with over 25 million streams on Spotify alone.
The Him has remixed some of the biggest artists in the world to much acclaim, The Chainsmokers, Martin Garrix, Tiësto, Miley Cyrus and Kygo to name a few. They are signed with Spinnin Records where they successfully released originals like “Nothing on Us” and “Broken Love”.
Todd Helder has no boundaries and continues to break barriers that are set up before him. Much of his influences comes from the music and games he grew up with and the futuristic elements can be heard throughout his music and live performances. With his stunning debut releases on Martin Garrix’ STMPD Recordings and Trap Nation the future shines bright…
