2012 has been a hugely important year for Fedde le Grand, allowing him to refine the skills that accorded him superstar status.
"I've finally come into my own and matured as an artist and producer," he says. "I've taken full control of everything that's going on around me, I'm right at the heart of the Fedde le Grand ship." Aside from three months in the studio, working on his second album (due for release at the end of the year), Fedde has spent most of 2012 touring, producing some unforgettable moments for him, including the Sensation parties in places like Korea, and sampling the burgeoning, intriguing US EDM scene.
"America's been another highlight for me this year," says Fedde. "The 'EDM explosion' has just gotten bigger and bigger, and to watch it as well as be a part of it can give you shivers." The good ship le Grand keeps on sailing strong.
