Dutch DJ / producer Don Diablo was born and raised in Holland and is currently working on rapidly expanding his discography in between his global touring schedule. After scoring multiple number one hits on Beatport he became the #3 selling artist of the year in 2015 and also managed to rack up over a hundred million views on Youtube in the same year. In the meanwhile the Dutchman also became an in demand remixer, adding names like Madonna, Ed Sheeran, Rudimental, Birdy and many others to his portfolio.
In his Amsterdam based studio he has collaborated and produced with artists like Kelis, Alex Clare, Example, Diplo and Tiësto to name a few. In 2015 he also launched his “HEXAGON” record label, the first release held the no. 1 position on Beatport for almost two weeks and the label was awarded “best new label of the year”. An obvious dream start for a label with a great future ahead. Warner Brothers also asked Don to create the worldwide theme song for the highly anticipated “Batman Arkham Origins” game. The track and the accompanying video became an instant viral hit racking up millions of Youtube plays and global hype.
Don’s firm radio support in tastemaker countries like the U.K. and the U.S.A. introduced the Dutchman to a wider audience this year. His own HEXAGON radio show is currently aired in over 35 countries and holds a solid top 10 position in the iTunes podcast section every week, thus reaching millions of people across the planet.
In October 2015, during the annual DJMag Top100 awards, Don was awarded with the “highest climber of the year” prize, moving 52 places up the list from 82 to 30.His packed travel schedule headlining nearly every major club and festival around the world are also evident proof of his ever growing worldwide fan base. Don’s many other passion projects like directing music videos, working on movie soundtracks and setting up his own fashion brand make it even more clear that it is safe to assume you can expect to hear a lot more from the ambitious Dutchman in the years to come.
