Dutch DJs touring the USA the summer of 2021

As a brand, a passion, and a movement, “Dutch Dance” has dominated the international dance scene for years. Many Dutch DJs have gathered a worldwide following and prior to the pandemic, flew all around the globe to entertain one energetic crowd after another. With in-person events returning this Summer, some of the Netherlands-born Electronic Music virtuosos are making their way back to numerous venues, stages and festivals. From underground talent to household names, the Dutch dance scene has built a reputation for harboring everyone’s kind of DJ. However, with so many successful and famous DJs coming from such a small dot on the map, we will help you to keep track of all their performances in the United States.

Laidback Luke

Laidback Luke

Laidback Luke established his underground credentials with several booming house and techno 12″s during the 1990s before playing a significant role in shaping the EDM sound with his more accessible material during the 21st century. Initially inspired by the rough energy of Chicago and New York house as well as Detroit techno, he became a hot property in clubland with his early singles, which were summed up by the 1999 compilation Psyched-Up. He then switched to a more melodic progressive house style, signing a major-label deal and releasing his debut album, Electronic Satisfaction, in 2002. Through constant worldwide touring, remixes, and original productions, he became one of the leading artists of the EDM scene during the 2000s and 2010s, working with heavyweights such as Swedish House Mafia and Avicii and scoring crossover hits such as the 2008 remake of “Show Me Love” by Robin S. He remained highly active during the 2010s, releasing charting singles with the likes of Steve Aoki, Example, and Martin Solveig in addition to the 2015 full-length Focus.

This duo’s emphasis on their artistic strengths has seen them weave sonically and visually intricate stories through their music. Droeloe‘s signature skull has quickly become synonymous with progressive music and breathtaking art highlighted by their impeccable percussion-heavy sound infused with the catchiest melodies and stunning use of visuals.

They hit the electronic music scene in 2016 when San Holo brought them aboard Bitbird where the duo released a string of singles through the rest of the year including “zZz” and “Wake the Warrior” establishing themselves as a new force to be reckoned with. The duo’s songwriting and producing continued to mature giving way to another string of hits across different labels such as Lowly Palace and Monstercat.

The duo returned to bitbird for their biggest piece of work to date – their debut EP A Moment In Time. Featuring five unique cover pieces and a beautiful visual storyboard, the EP was a hit amassing close to 25 million streams in less than a year and launching them on tour with San Holo on over forty-dates across four continents.

Droeloe will be back in September, click here for details.

Martin Garrix

Martin Garrix kicked off his career in a high-profile way, first landing on the dance charts with his 2012 remix of Christina Aguilera’s “Your Body.” Born Martijn Garritsen, the then-16-year-old DJ spent 2012 remixing Aguilera, signing with Spinnin’ Records, and releasing the “BFAM” single in collaboration with Julian Jordan.

In 2013 he released his solo single “Animals,” which hit number one in the U.K. and reached the Top Ten in eight other countries. His Gold Skies EP rounded up those tracks, adding two more charting songs: “Tremor” and the title track.
