Coone is at the forefront of hardstyle and has been since busting onto the scene at a young age.
This year is his third in a row in the DJ Mag Top 100, but given that at just 24 he sold out a 10,000 capacity arena in his native Belgium, it was always likely to be this way. Someone quick to spot the DJ and producer’s talent has been Steve Aoki, boss of the internationally recognised label Dim Mak, who signed up Coone this year.
“This year has had many standout moments and highlights,” he beams, “but being part of the closing of last year’s Defqon.1 festival was absolutely one of the greatest. Of course signing at Dim Mak and working with guys like Steve Aoki are for me great steps in my career. I was really excited to sign — this makes me the hardstyle ambassador of Dim Mak!”
