Unread Tuesday, Aug 24th 2010, 03:11 PM #1 Portrait: Fedde Le Grand @ Electric Zoo 2010
Back in 2006 there was a little track which made its way through clubland called "Put Your Hand Up For Detroit" from a young Dutch producer named Fedde le Grand. The track exploded to #1 positions in multiple countries, as well as receiving "Best Underground Club Track" awards from IDMA and CWA, also providing Fedde with the IDMA for "Best Breakthrough DJ". This track was a not so humble introduction to the world of jet setting DJ status which has seen Fedde steadily grow to one of the premier DJs in the game. His debut album Output hit 60 countries last year and went on to include a slew of successful singles including the massive "Back & Forth". He has collaborated with superstars Madonna and Will.i.am and is set to go into the studio with the likes of Tiesto and Mark Knight, amongst others. He is also the head of the acclaimed Flamingo Recordings which boasts a slew of production material, as well as some of the best club nights around the world. Always keeping busy, Fedde has just released his latest club banger "Rockin High" featuring remixes from superstars David Guetta and Laidback Luke and is in the middle of another packed festival season bringing him to events around the globe. In September, his busy schedule brings him back to New York City where he will be making a Main Stage appearance at Electric Zoo on Sunday, September 5th.
