Hardwell weekly selections

Exclusive Interview: Hardwell opens up in one of his last interviews before retirement

This year’s Parookaville festival was – once again – a simply sensational event. Packed with the greatest names in the electronic scene, the German event continues to grow year upon year, bringing a wealth of dance music’s elite to Weeze for the weekend. Few artists boast a bigger reputation within the genre than Hardwell, and the DJ Mag Top 100 (2013 & 2014) winner sat down with We Rave You to discuss a range of topics, including his new single, and why hardstyle will “never die.”

With the Dutch master now announcing his retirement, Hardwell also told us why family is the most important thing to him, and how he plans to spend time with his friends, and his dog. Confessing that he’s a self-proclaimed “great beer drinker!”, you can catch our full interview with Hardwell below!

Making the switch over from an established career in sports journalism to the world of dance music in 2016, Jake Gable has cemented a spot as one of the industry's most in-demand names during his tenure to date. Working on highly successful press campaigns for the likes of Tiësto, MK, and many more during his time at one of London's most premiere PR outfits, Gable has also proved his hand as a skilled journalist, interviewing acts such as Oliver Heldens, Martin Solveig, NERVO, and many more at international events like EDC Las Vegas, Tomorrowland, Creamfields, and Amsterdam Dance Event. Working tirelessly as the CEO & Founder of UK company The EVENT, Gable also doubles up as a tour manager, playlist curator, dance music influencer, and DJ, under his JK-GBL alias. Further adding strings to his bow as a freelance copywriter - where he has worked for numerous iconic artists such as Axwell, and labels, such as Third Party's Release Records - Gable is best known for producing two of the biggest editorials in We Rave You history; The first a breaking news story on Swedish House Mafia's return at Miami's Ultra Music Festival in 2018 (a world exclusive), and the second titled 'Avicii: The Truth...', an inquest into the EDM star's passing, published less than 24 hours after his death.
