Fedde Le Grand

Enjoying artistic freedom afforded only to an elite few, Fedde Le Grand is a masterful pioneer of electronica, considered by countless fans and artists as one of the single most defining figures in House music.

Whether as DJ or producer, Fedde’s influence can be felt throughout the electronic landscape; his creative beats, grooves, melodies and rhythms surround us all and have done so for many years. He’s been credited countless awards, featured the top half of the acclaimed DJ Mag Top 100 for over a decade and remixed the biggest artists around – from Coldplay, Madonna,, Robbie Williams, Everything But The Girl, and Fatboy Slim, to Shakira, Rihanna, Mariah Carey, his own all-time musical inspiration Michael Jackson and his long awaited Faithless remix just see the list continue to grow.

When it comes to solo records it was the seminal electro track ‘Put Your Hands Up For Detroit’ that not only brought Le Grand to global attention, but breathed fresh life into a stagnant house scene. Dubbed by many as the “Saviour of House”, it soon became evident that the Dutchman was no one-trick pony. Amongst others, tracks like ‘The Creeps’, ‘Let Me Think About It’, ‘3 Minutes To Explain’, ‘Back & Forth’, ‘Control Room’, ‘Metrum’, ‘So Much Love’ and ‘Sparks (Turn Off Your Mind)’, have established him as one of the most exciting and consistent talents around, demonstrating his effortless ability to move seamlessly between huge mainstream success and edgier, underground sounds. His already impressive musical resume just keeps building with titles like ‘Long Way From Home’, ‘Rockin’ N’ Rollin’, ‘No Good’, ‘Where We Belong’, 'Don't Give Up' and ‘Tales of Tomorrow’.

Following his 2009 debut artist album ‘Output’, released in an incredible 64 countries worldwide, his second album ‘Something Real’ featuring titles like ‘Cinematic’, ‘The Noise (Yeah Baby)’, ‘Feel Good’, ‘Keep On Believing’, ‘Give Me Some’ and the massive ‘Rhythm Of The Night’ has only added to establishing him as one of the foremost creative forces in electronic music. Now moving his Darklight Recordings imprint into a brandnew collaboration with Armada Music, the Dutchman shows he’s ready for a new era. The first new Darklight release ‘Dancing Together’ has enjoyed a massive reception. With his second release of the year on Spinnin’ Records ‘Love’s Gonna Get You’ still going strong and already announcing runner up ‘Keep On Rising’, Fedde clearly shows no sign of slowing down!

Not only indulging in his own perfectionist musical tendencies, Fedde also is ever so focussed on nurturing new talent using his years of hard-earned experience to push them towards superstardom. The list of talent that enjoyed support of Fedde’s hand is long and impressive, and included the likes of Nicky Romero, Hardwell, Danny Avila, Jewelz & Sparks to name but a few. His Darklight Sessions radioshow has become a commonplace for fans across the globe to catch a glimpse of the new talent and tracks that Fedde’s got his eye on, including the musical picks that not always fit his live sets. Airing worldwide on the biggest local broadcasting giants like SiriusXM, Radio FG, Big City Beats and many more, before getting its weekly online upload to enjoy on-demand-rerun-pleasure for eternity.

Being a DJ from the first hour, around the globe millions have witnessed show-stopping live-sets and his innate ability to move any crowd, exploding with ingenuity and originality as the only way he knows how. Huge performances across continents are par for the course for Le Grand, with the likes of Coachella, Ultra Music Festival, Tomorrowland, Exit Festival, Global Gathering, Creamfields, Electric Zoo, Sziget, Mysteryland, EDC, Future Music, SW4, Airbeat One, an unparalleled number of Sensations, and the list just continues to grow. Most impressively adding his genre-defying new show concept GRAND, combining live theatre with dance, this show truly is The Next Level In Dance.
