Hardwell continuously cements his position as one of the world’s most successful DJs year after year, regularly reminding fans of his talent through his exceptional releases, as well as his energy fueled live performances. 2013 was an important year for the Dutch superstar, and was perhaps the year that his career truly began to spiral. During July that year, Hardwell performed at one of the world’s most famous festivals, Tomorrowland, where one of the highlights of the set was the moment that he captured the audience with his edit of Blasterjaxx‘s ‘Fifteen‘, which has just turned 4 years old.
Hardwell’s Tomorrowland set that year was perhaps one of the most iconic performances of his career, he not only impressed the crowd, but went viral online through the set video, which has been viewed over 26 million times. One of the set’s biggest highlights was when he dropped his edit of ‘Fifteen’ by Blasterjaxx, who are known worldwide for their exceptional talent, producing some of the biggest anthems in the electronic music scene. The thumping beat alongside the monstrous melody truly prove that Hardwell and Blasterjaxx make a winning combination, and their talents really do balance eachother perfectly. One of the earliest big room tracks, ‘Fifteen’ was part of the movement that saw the genre take over the electronic scene, and the effects are still felt to this day.
The anthem went on to become one of the biggest tracks in electronic music history, and now four years on, it still provokes a huge crowd reaction. Relive the epic moment that Hardwell dropped the collaboration at Tomorrowland 2013 below.
