Dutchman Fedde holds steady in the Top 100 poll this year, maintaining his place as one of the biggest pulls when it comes to all sorts of big room house music. Since shooting to prominence in 2006 with his 'Put Your Hands Up For Detroit' electro house behemoth (subsequently stolen by Fatboy Slim, who added other place names around the world, so much so that many people now think it's Norman's track), he's maintained a high profile through a steady stream of productions, his label Flamingo, helping to bring through new talent such as Deniz Koyu, Merk & Kremont, Roul & Doors and Danny Avila — and smashing the fuck out of parties worldwide.

“The last 12 months have been really great for me,” Fedde tells DJ Mag. “I've had quite a good run production-wise, and right now I've got multiple tracks laying down that I'm super-proud of and could really make the difference as far as I'm concerned. I'm quite excited for the rollout of it all.”
