Dutch breakout Dyro emerged in 2013 as one of the scene’s hottest new stars. Debuting at #30 in the DJ Mag Top 100 poll, he became the youngest ‘Highest New Entry’ artist to ever appear in the definitive DJ poll. Known for driving bass lines, enchanting melodies and highly charged drops he has seamlessly made the transition from bedroom musician to renowned international DJ/Producer.
Having snatched the highest new entry accolade in the 2013 poll Dyro has surpassed all expectations with his rapid ascent into the upper reaches of the dance scene. Previously tipped by the likes of World #1 DJ Hardwell, Laidback Luke, and Dada Life as their ‘Breakthrough Artist of 2012’, the 21 year old star has lived up to the praise bestowed upon him and cemented his standing with seminal releases like his first Beatport # 1 record alongside Hardwell for ‘Never Say Goodbye’, as well as an extended streak of visibility on the global clubbing circuit.
One of 2013’s Top 100 debutants is pretty modest about his achievements over the last couple of years, claiming that he had “been making tracks in my room for sometime before [my first release] and it all came together with a few lucky breaks along the way”.
The first of those lucky breaks was passing a tune to Dutch electro titan Hardwell who played it the very same day at Electric Zoo in New York and went on to release it on his own Revealed label.
After that it has been a joyous ride for the eclectic Dyro who has gone on to play with Hardwell and Tiësto on stage during UMF in Miami, as well as playing EDC in Vegas and Mysteryland in his home country.
“I am really pleased!” beams the man who runs his own Daftastic radio show, has remixed Axwell and Katy Perry amongst others and is soon to release his next solo EP on Revealed.
“It is amazing to get recognized for what I have achieved this year and I can’t thank my fans enough for voting. It means so much that all the dedication and hard work has paid off.”
