I AM Hardwell Documentary

Synopsis: For over two and half years, Hardwell has been followed by videographer Robin Piree, the man behind Hardwell's stunning aftermovies and Q&A concepts. During that time Piree had been extensively filming the 25-year-old DJ/producer's exponential growth from being an upcoming artist to becoming an international superstar. The documentary provides a captivating inside-look on Hardwell that is just as rare as the story behind the dance music phenomenon during a period when Hardwell's international success grew exponentially.

I am two persons with one face.

That's how you should see it.

So who is Robbert?

Robbert is a guy born and bred

in Breda, 25 years old now...

whose hobby takes him

all over the world.

And who is Hardwell?

- I created him as Robbert's alter ego.

Hardwell is the stage name I use

for playing and producing music.

He's become one of the world's

greatest DJs.

Dance tour, baby.

Let's do the biggest sit-down

in the world.

If anyone can do it,

it's Breda, right?

So everyone sit down.

Tell your neighbors to sit down.

I'll count to 4 and I want everyone

to jump up at the same time.

Stay low.

Come on.

Are you ready, Breda'?

- Hold on. Get your ass low.

Breda, let's go.

One, two, three, four.

Good morning to our youngest guest,

he's 16:
Robbert van de Corput.

Better known as DJ Hardwell.

- That's right.

What kind of music do you make?

I became well-known with my

Bubbling Beats CDs.

Bubbling is a style.

What is bubbling?

-It's a Surinamese/Antillean genre.

It came across to the Netherlands

and I picked it up and introduced it here.

It got me a record deal

and I released 4 CDs.

People think DJs only play music,

but I'm also a producer.

I had music lessons

and I play the piano and keyboard.

So I do have a musical background,

I can do more than just play records.

What's your dream for the future'?

- Being the number one DJ in the world.

In ten years I want to have my own

concert like Tisto has now.

Is he your role model?

Or is he different?

His style is completely different,

and so is his scene.

But he's still a role model for all

DJs and musicians in my scene.

Awesome, huh? This is the place.

This is the place, right?

- Right.


- So cool.

It's much bigger than I thought.

And those stands will go.

- Yes, those stands will be gone too.

It'll be completely flat.

- And it's sold out.

This is awesome.

I can just picture the stage.

45 meters wide.

It is incredibly high.

Usually it's very dark here.

This is quite a milestone.

I remember seven years ago

I had to call my dad to pick me up...

after Chuckie's first concert.

Not even Dirty Dutch. It was

Luxurush at Heineken Music Hall.

They had the stage there

and the VIP deck behind it.

You could see into the DJ booth.

We stood there all night.

I was dying to play in this hall, too.

And now you will.

- Now my own concert will be here.

He came to my office six years ago.

It was just an informal chat

to get to know each other, but...

he stayed all afternoon.

We got on really well.

When I first saw him play,

at some very small venue...

I thought:
You've got it.

You're gonna be huge.

The first time I met him and saw him

at work in the studio...

I worked for a label

and I'd seen many artists.

But I'd never seen anyone

with his kind of drive...

or his excellent musical talent,

even back then...

for making and hearing music.

He's pure passion.

That sets him apart from the others.

My first time at your agency I said I

wanted to play at Heineken Music Hall.

And you were like: Sure, great.

I hadn't even signed up yet.

But I said it and here we are.

When he came to me,

he dreamed of HMH.

says things that make him

sound really ambitious.

But he always delivers.

I think it's a real high point

for a DJ.

Because most people still think

DJs just play records.

So if you have your own concert,

your own people and production...

you do what world-famous pop stars do.

Heineken Music Hall is a major venue

in the Netherlands.

Lots of great artists perform here.

So it's a real milestone.

There are lots of milestones
