The No. 1 DJ himself, Hardwell, feels it’s someone else’s turn to sit at the top of this year’s DJ Mag Top 100. During an interview with MTV, Robbert van de Corput, AKA Hardwell, spoke about his admiration for fellow Dutch DJ Martin Garrix.

“As a DJ I think he’s been flawless these last few years and in the studio he’s making fantastic music, which really has this amazing vibe and energy to it when played in clubs. His experience is really shining through; he has all the makings of a number one.”

Hardwell also shared his feelings on the growing popularity of EDM in other parts of the globe. Aside from Europe, North and South America, and Australia, India seems to be jumping on the EDM train. These new fans have not gone unnoticed, as one can see in Hardwell’s statement:

“Connecting with my fans in India, whether at shows or via social media, has always shown me how special the passion in the country is. Not just for music, but for life. I’m happy that this time I will be returning to India won’t be to put on another tour event, but to be part of a project that is about celebrating life, and more importantly building a foundation to making a social difference to young kids in the country.”
