ADIN, spearheads the forefront of a flurry of talented techno producers to come out of the Netherlands. But unlike a large wealth of his native counterparts, Adin’s story has seen the DJ craft his unique sonic style through a colourful past, and amalgamation between the dark and light of his life.
Making a rapid and far-reaching impact on the electronic music scene over the course of his double-decade career, it was the move from Ajdin’s war-torn birthplace of Bosnia to a Rotterdam record store in his youth that marked the first stepping stone on his eventual ladder to success. Taking early inspiration from iconic producers such as Masters At Work, Roger Sanchez and Erick Morillo, it was his dub mix of Sandy Rivera’s ‘Freak’ on Simon Dunmore’s Defected Records that was championed all over the scene.
By 2007, Ajdin had become one of the most in-demand artists in the business, touring worldwide with a schedule of more than 30 shows per month. A technical wizard on the decks, his obsession with house, techno and multiple sub-genres shone through immediately. Stepping things up a notch, it was a meeting with Pasquale Rotella that changed the course of Ajdin’s future as he switched the melodic sounds of his EDC NY set to more dark and industrial tones half-way through the performance. The brave and somewhat adventurous gamble was wholeheartedly rewarded, with Ajdin’s performance ranked as one of Rolling Stone’s “25 raviest moments of EDC.” Always one to go with the moment rather than to meticulously plan out sets, it is this party-ready approach that saw him become a key member of Insomniac’s events early on, playing further sets at EDC Orlando, Mexico, Japan and the Las Vegas showpiece event. Now firmly established as one of Holland’s finest techno exports, Ajdin has also performed at Mysteryland, Sensation, Creamfields, Elrow, the iconic Womb Tokyo venue, Free Your Mind Festival and Free Your Mind with Sasha and John Digweed.
Having honed his craft on vinyl long before his 2004 debut in the production studio, ADIN has amassed universal plaudits via his insatiable back catalogue, vibrant track selections and instinctive ability to read a crowd. Making incredible music that resonates further than just the confines of gruff dancefloor beats, Ajdin’s ADIN alias has garnered a reputation as an innovative and forward-thinking producer & DJ, fusing his driven tones with an emotional blend of melodic techno. Carving a niche signature sound which has seen the Dutch artist amass the support of the finest names in the underground scene, including Joris Voorn, Nic Fanciulli, Maya Jane Coles, Richie Hawtin, Hot Since 82, and Josh Butler, ADIN is also the founder of his own ADIN Records imprint.
With the label playing host to his sumptuous mix of warm underground music, including tracks like ‘Fargo,’ ‘Adria’, and ‘Alive’, ADIN’s infectious devotion to house and techno has found a true calling after many years spent spreading his powerful production prowess across the studio, with deep influenced records that resonate broadly with a respective nod to the producer’s past.
Diversifying his musical output through a combination of atmospheric tracks, ADIN faces 2018 and beyond with a fresh impetus, marking the beginning of an exciting new chapter in the career of the revered producer. Amassing a reputation as an important purveyor of international techno that resonates broadly, ADIN has established himself as a passionate contributor to the scene, cementing his place as one of the genre’s premiere names.
ANDREW RAYEL has been alternately referred to as “the modern day Mozart,” “the next Armin van Buuren,” “the pride of Moldova.” Considered a rare talent even in the highly competitive field of tech-savvy global DJs and producers, RAYEL is a classically trained pianist and musician whose soaring melodies and original compositions have the power to move all who listen. Possessing an otherworldly talent that draws fans from beyond the world of electronic dance music, RAYEL is also a workaholic, constantly striving to master his craft.
As a DJ, ANDREW RAYEL exudes an unbridled enthusiasm for the music he plays and his onstage performances are electric and filled with physical energy. Drenched in a well-earned sweat after every set, RAYEL earns his position as the band-leader of the crowd before him, stirring up their passion as much with his music selection as with his bodily vigor.

A guiding light. A common language. A connection. All those things epitomize AVIRA’s approach to dance music and the effect he has on his global following. Tickling the sweet spot between left-field melodic techno and genuine dance floor appeal, his music exudes a sense of purpose that appeals to casual listeners and purists alike, making the Canadian creator one of the most exciting acts in dance music today.
Born in Kuwait, raised in Egypt and bred in Canada after moving there when he was eight years old, AVIRA wasn’t remarkably obsessed with music throughout his formative years. That is, until he got tasked with creating a short-movie soundtrack as an assignment in high school and discovered Tiësto’s ‘In Search Of Sunrise’ series on a local radio station in Toronto. The combination of those two things struck a chord in him, pushing him to sit down at his computer and spend every bit of spare time on his new-found interest. He hasn’t gotten off that computer since.
“Music completely changed my life”, AVIRA explains. “As I started taking more and more steps into this amazing new world, I began to understand the effect music can have on people’s lives. And to me, that’s exactly what music is about. It’s about emotional release, about making an impact. It’s the perfect medicine for the mind, and I feel like everyone in the world needs a little bit of that. If I can get as many people into a room as possible and have them open up to my ideas, it can be a healing experience that brings people closer together.”
Recent tracks such as ‘The Worship’ (feat. Diana Miro) and ‘Hollow’ (with Armin van Buuren), which AVIRA singles out as his best work to date, are built on that notion. “With these two records, I feel like I’m finally finding my voice. I’ve been making music for almost two decades now, and I’ve had my records played on A State Of Trance as Assaf for nearly eight years. Coming from that background, I feel that my records will always bear a hint of Trance euphoria, and shifting the focus from Assaf to AVIRA has allowed me to connect with an even wider audience. What matters to me is that I can be the person they go to when they want to feel something, that I can be the captain to their musical journey and a global ambassador for dance music. And if my music can inspire them as others have inspired me, if it can help them find their way just like it helped me find mine, I’ll have fulfilled my own purpose as well.”
Armin van Buuren
It takes little to recognize that Armin van Buuren has been one of the world’s biggest DJs and producers in electronic music for over twenty years. His life-long dedication to the scene has earned him a Grammy® nomination for ‘This Is What It Feels Like’ (feat. Trevor Guthrie) and critical acclaim for global hit singles such as ‘Blah Blah Blah’, ‘Great Spirit’ (with Vini Vici), ‘Leave A Little Love’ (with Alesso) and ‘Music Means Love Forever’ (with Steve Aoki). Additionally, he claimed the number one spot in the annual DJ Mag Top 100 DJs poll for an unprecedented five times, contributing to the twenty consecutive top 5 spots to date (the most recent being a #3 in the DJ Mag Top 100 DJs poll of 2021).
His two-hour radio show, A State of Trance (ASOT), is broadcast weekly from his own radio studio in the Armada Music HQ in Amsterdam to over 44 million listeners in more than 80 countries, as well as online via audio and video live stream on YouTube, Facebook and Twitch. ASOT, which surpassed the milestone number of 1000 episodes in January 2021, has grown from a small radio show into a complete dance music brand with stages and events across the globe.
Armin van Buuren has launched several ‘Armin Only’ world tours throughout the years, including the ones based on his albums (‘Imagine’ in 2008, ‘Mirage’ in 2010, ‘Intense’ in 2013 and ‘Embrace’ in 2016) and ‘The Best Of Armin Only’ in 2017. In 2022, two years later than originally planned due to the Corona pandemic, Armin van Buuren will play his most personal and intimate live shows yet through four sold-out shows in the Ziggo Dome: ‘This Is Me’.
In addition to all of this, Armin van Buuren is the co-founder of Armada Music, the biggest independent dance music label in the world. The Amsterdam-, NYC- and London-based record label, which was founded in tandem with Maykel Piron and David Lewis, is acclaimed internationally for releasing music across the electronic music spectrum, was voted #7 in Mixmag’s “Label Of The Decade” poll in 2017, and is the six-time winner of “Best Global Record Label” at the International Dance Music Awards in Miami, the sixth of which was won in 2018.
As a performer, Armin had headlined countless shows at leading festivals and venues around the world, including Electric Daisy Carnival (Las Vegas, New York), Ultra Music Festival (Miami) and Tomorrowland (Belgium) plus residencies at Hï Ibiza, in Las Vegas and numerous others.
On December 16, 2019, Armin van Buuren joined forces with the World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF) to motivate millions of people to join the movement and fight against plastic pollution. As a Global Oceans Ambassador, Armin will contribute to the worldwide #BeatPlastic campaign: www.arminvanbuuren.com/beatplastic.
To date, Armin has seven full-length artist albums to his name: ‘76’ (2003), ‘Shivers’ (2005), ‘Imagine’ (2008), ‘Mirage’ (2010), ‘Intense’ (2013), ‘Embrace’ (2015) and ‘Balance’ (2019).

Although Collé may seem like a newcomer, his experience certainly isn’t. With years of production of many different music styles, his involvement and interest in people and cultures ensured that he developed a unique sound, with a lot of emotion and depth. It feels like a new way of expressing himself through his music. In 2018 he took the scene by storm with his track Owami, one of that year’s anthems. Solomun, Âme, Bedouin, and Black Coffee are just a few of the well-known artists who heavily supported the song.
His music to date has been significant, including releases on labels such as Anjunadeep, Stil vor Talent, trueColors and Balance to name a few..

This imprint focuses on a vocal electronic music direction, being mindful to steer clear of clichés, all the while reaching a wider audience with its unique releases.
The first single on Point in Time was Collé’s own ‘Losing Time’ featuring singer and songwriter Kauf. Losing Time was one of Dixon’s secret weapons that year, entering the Beatport Top 100 and Tale of Clubs “Best of 2020”. Always looking for a sound that is timeless yet original, Collé has exciting plans for the near future!
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.
y the age of 24, Coone was able to lay down an almost impossible feat; completely selling out one of Belgium’s largest venues with over 10.000 Hard Dance fans for an exclusive event – Coone & theGang. The event has certainly become one of Coone’s most memorable moments, a clear pillar in his life which marked the beginning of big things to come and completely opened the Hard Dance scene in Belgium, boosted by national tv and media coverage. 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 hisproductions. His experience has lead him towards a new “Challenge”; to create an album in 30 days including collaborations with some of the Hard Dance scene’s superstars. The album was met with great support in the scene, catapulting Coone to new heights.
Coone’s success within Europe has opened up many doors for him as his eyes are fixed on the horizon, towards the international Hardstyle scene in countries such as Australia and the United States, with a World Tour already in the making.
Without a doubt, Coone lives and breathes Hardstyle. His passion shared by thousands of like-minded souls all over the world, each speaking a universal language. Music. A binding force uniting us all.
Daan Steenman (1999) is a Utrecht (NL) based House DJ/producer. From a young age, he grew up in a musical family and instruments were all around him.

Daan started playing the guitar when he was 10 years old and from the age of 15 he really got into electronic music. Besides playing the guitar, Daan started producing at the age of 16, in which he quickly made a lot of progress. In the same period he also started playing House/Minimal music, digital and Vinyl.

Fedde Le Grand
Fedde Le Grand is considered to be one of the most defining figures in the fast evolving genre of House music.

He’s been credited countless awards and remixed the biggest artists around – from Coldplay, Madonna, will.i.am, Robbie Williams, Everything But The Girl, Fatboy Slim, to Shakira, Rihanna, Mariah Carey, Faithless, and his own all-time musical inspiration Michael Jackson. He’s featured the top half of the acclaimed DJ Mag Top 100 for well over a decade and has just returned to an incredible #22 after first entering at the same position all the way back in 2007. Le Grand is here, to stay.
When it comes to solo records ‘Put Your Hands Up For Detroit’ brought him to global attention, but tracks like ‘The Creeps’, ‘Let Me Think About It’, ‘Back & Forth’, ‘Metrum’, ‘So Much Love’, and ‘Sparks (Turn Off Your Mind)’, confirmed him as a versatile powerhouse in the global Dance music industry.

Establishing him as one of the foremost creative forces in electronic music, Le Grand shows no signs of slowing down.

Creation and iteration form the center of Hollt’s drive; whether in the studio creating music, on the workbench iterating on his self-made controllers, coding new DAW plugins or directing one of his live sets. Notes and nodes, mixing and modeling, coding and composing – it really is all the same for the cum-laude conservatory graduate.
In recent years, Hollt, a.k.a. Jeffrey Frugte, has been steadily solidifying his name; merging melodic elements with a defiling energy, creating stories and blending genres. Hailing from the Netherlands, Hollt moves comfortably between both Berlin’s melodic techno scene, resulting in the underground hit ‘Halos’ on Jonas Saalbach & David Guzy’s Radikon, as well as his UK friends leading to BBC Radio One support on ‘Fusion’, released on ZeroThree.
With his own label ‘die Stube Records’ he has an outlet that allows for full creative and creator control, resulting in ‘Anomia’, the collaboration with Lake Avalon, and most recently releasing his EP ‘Philosophy of Time’.
On stage, Hollt creates a world consisting of melodies and techno, either DJ’ing or playing live with the Holltesizer. Heavily supported by the likes of ARTBAT, Mathame, Adriatique, Innellea, Kevin de Vries, Fideles, Joris Voorn, Coeus, Eelke Kleijn, Jonas Saalbach & more, his music is now reaching more people every day in both his worlds; online and offline.

Since bursting onto Anjunabeats with his debut solo release back in 2012, London-based producer ilan Bluestone’s whirlwind journey through the international dance music scene has been nothing short of monumental. With a string of recent hits such as ‘Will We Remain?’, ‘Let Me Know’ and ‘I Believe’ under his belt, he now has an impressive array of career live performances at prestigious venues including London’s Wembley Arena, the Bill Graham Civic Auditorium in San Francisco, EDC Las Vegas and New York’s Madison Square Garden to boot.

To Joachim Pastor, music isn’t about the hypes, trends or the weekly special. The French DJ, producer and Hungry Music founder has been casting aside music world mania in favor of a timeless sound since first breaking into the scene, and the upcoming release of his debut album sees the recent Armada Music signee push into a new chapter with that exact trademark.
A true perfectionist when it comes to the quality of his product, Joachim Pastor studied at the Versailles conservatory between the ages of 4 and 15.
Near the end of his time at the conservatory, when his hopes of playing guitar in a band had started to grey out due to the sheer impracticality of it all, he started downloading music software with the intention of creating his own virtual band to play guitar with.
That one thing led to another, and Joachim Pastor’s music has been sporting an electronic edge ever since. Inspired by the works of seminal artists such as Daft Punk, Sonata Arctica and Jean-Michel Jarre, Joachim Pastor’s melodious brand of electronica offers a sense of sophistication not easily found in today’s music world.
Designed to make listeners feel with every fiber of their being, his music is an expression of emotion with a danceable twist, endorsed by hundreds of thousands of fans on Spotify alone as well those who witnessed his performances at the likes of Dour, Tomorrowland, Paleo, Olympia, Solidays, DGTL, Pleinvrees and more. Now on the verge of presenting his first-ever album, Joachim Pastor continues to produce the music he wants to.
And if the initial response is anything to go by, that album provides exactly the kind of music that will withstand the test of time.
At just 22, rising Dutch star Justus (aka Justus Schipper) looks set to have the world at his feet. The talented music producer and DJ has been touted by the likes of Tiësto, David Guetta, MORTEN, Afrojack, DVBBS, Carnage, W&W, Steve Aoki and many more. Now as he confirms rumours of a record deal with none other than Spinnin’ Records, the path looks clear for him to capitalise on his early promise and rise through the ranks to the highest levels of electronica.
As with any artist who manages to break through into the A-list elite, Justus’ success is in equal parts down to musical talent and laser-focused, at times dogged, determination to forge a career in dance music.
An all-ages Afrojack show at Amsterdam’s legendary Ziggo Dome in 2014 opened the eyes of a then 14-year-old Justus to the explosive energy of an all-out, topflight electronic artist in full flow in front of a crowd of thousands. Mastering the DJ booth, Justus moved on to the studio, a natural affinity for music production backed up by six years’ practicing the drums. In 2017, the teenager took a bet on himself, leaving school behind and putting himself 100% into his music.
As his sound starts to naturally mature and develop, Justus is absolutely hitting his stride as a producer and a performer, diving into a new vein of rhythm and groove that sits somewhere in the space between Tiësto-style Trance and Amelie Lens’ brand of Techno. With much, much more in the pipeline for 2022, it surely is an exciting time for fans of this talented Dutch youngster.
