Responsible for collaborations with many of the dance industry’s biggest up and coming producers, EDM kingpin Tiësto has worked with the likes of Jauz, Don Diablo, and Oliver Heldens in recent years. But back in 2011, he was busy introducing us to a then-unknown Dutch DJ by the name of Hardwell.
Teaming up with his fellow countryman on ‘Zero 76’, Tiësto and Hardwell’s huge festival mainstage banger embodied the ‘Dirty Dutch’ sound the two have become famed for, and 7 years on from the record’s February 2011 release, the track is still widely regarded as a truly iconic dance release of modern times.
Since catapulting into the public eye following the release of ‘Zero 76’, Hardwell went on to scoop the #1 spot in DJ Mag‘s infamous Top 100 poll in both 2013 and 2014, performing alongside Tiësto during the legendary trance star’s ClubLife 500 show in Amsterdam. The whopping 6 hour set as part of ADE 2016 saw the ‘Adagio For Strings’ producer perform at the Ziggo Dome in the Netherlands in honour of the landmark episode of his esteemed weekly podcast series.
Undoubtedly two of the biggest producer to ever grace the dance industry, you can relive the classic ‘Zero 76’ below, and let us know your thoughts on this timeless anthem in the comments section!
