FAMOUS QUOTES BY HARDWELL
“As a little kid when I started off as a DJ, I couldn’t even dream about that. I think it’s the biggest achievement you can get in the whole DJ scene.”
“I think you can hear it in my tracks. What I like about trance is that it’s so euphoric. It really connects people; it gives people goosebumps. However with Hardwell, I’ve changed it; I took the elements and the energy, but my style is different.”
“As long as my fans appreciate what I’m doing and love my work, that’s the only thing that counts for me. Without my fans I wouldn’t be sitting here and doing this interview. It’s not really a competition. You can’t compare Armin to me, or to Skrillex. We’re all totally different and we’re all good friends.”
“I was 12 years old when I discovered dance music and 14 years old when I signed my first record deal, which is quite a long time ago already (laughs). I had to bring my parents with me to every gig because I wasn’t allowed to enter the club or DJ at the club without them because I was too young.”
“I was DJing live at a gig when I played the organ sample from ‘Be’ for the first time, and I don’t know, I just decided to mash it up with ‘Show Me Love’. When I was done I sent it to Luke, and for some reason after that the track got picked up and every major DJ was playing that bootleg.”
