From: Belgium

Best known for: “Good vibes.” Fave tune of 2018: “Chris Lake ‘Turn Off The Lights’.”
Breakthrough DJ/producer of 2018: “San Holo.”

Rocketing into the Top 100 last year at No.26, Belgium’s Felix De Laet has enjoyed an equally rocketing career trajectory since he broke into the big-time with his breakthrough 2014 smash, ‘Are You With Me’. Establishing a partnership with Armin van Buuren’s iconic Armada camp, where he dropped his ‘Less Is More’ album a few years later, Felix says the biggest development this year was his live debut at his country’s Tomorrowland festival.

“This year has been really big for me,” he tells DJ Mag. “I’ve been working hard on my very first live show, which involved no DJ gear on the stage at all! The debut at Tomorrowland was 100% the highlight of my summer. Other than that, I’m finishing my second album, which will be a little bit more electronic than the first one, though it’s still rocking those melodies I usually work on.”

Additionally, Felix points to the launch of his Found Frequencies label as a highlight, and supporting upcoming acts like Two Pauz, Mordkey & Mastrovita and Petit Navire. “I can’t wait to show everybody what’s coming up next!”

Multi-platinum-selling artist Felix De Laet, aka Lost Frequencies, has enjoyed a fast ascension to stardom and continues on a sky-high trajectory. Winning countless accolades to his name since his first No.1 selling record, this year he released his debut album ‘Less Is More’, including breakthrough hits ‘Reality’ and ‘Are You With Me’. 

Miami Music Week saw him play back to back shows, including hosting his very own Lost Frequencies & Friends party. This year he sold out a headline arena show in his hometown of Belgium, playing the Lotta Arena to 9000 frenzied fans. But the gig schedule hasn’t stopped Felix’s workflow; he also released a deluxe version of the album, remixing every track into club-friendly versions including garage, deep, tech and techno to satisfy the dancefloors.

“Besides touring all around the world playing the most amazing festivals and clubs and meeting so many different people, I played Tomorrowland main stage after David Guetta, which was unreal, and hosted my own Lost Frequencies & Friends stage the second weekend, which had to be shut down due to over-capacity,” he tells DJ Mag. “It’s been a wild ride so far.”
