Breakthrough DJ/producer of 2014: 

In recent years, a slew of hardstyle-leaning DJs have made their mark on the Top 100. One of the more consistent such figures to do just that is 31-year-old Coone, for whom 2014 marks an impressive fourth consecutive year in the poll.

The owner of the Dirty Workz label (which is known for its so-called ‘jumpstyle’ sounds as well as its hardstyle endeavours), he’s also turned out for Steve Aoki’s all-conquering Dim Mak imprint, where he released ‘'150 BPM’ alongside Jim Ferren back in February of this year.

Much of Coone’s success then, is undoubtedly attributable to a generous gigging and release schedule, with the last 12 months seeing him release an album ('Global Dedication') as well as a collaboration with Aoki entitled 'Can’t Stop the Swag'. If that’s his way of telling us that he’s a force to be reckoned with, then the results of the poll would suggest he’s not wrong.
