Released 10 Years Ago: Hardwell – Everybody Is In The Place

Ten years ago, Hardwell, then recognized as the number 1 DJ in the world, celebrated a milestone with his label Revealed Recordings by releasing ‘Everybody Is In The Place’ as its hundredth issue. This track not only underscored Hardwell‘s mastery in big room productions but also paid homage to the electronic music pioneers, The Prodigy, by sampling their 1991 classic ‘Everybody In The Place’. Released in 2014, this track combined Hardwell’s signature high-energy style with nostalgic elements, making it an instant favorite among fans.

‘Everybody Is In The Place’ showcased Hardwell‘s skill in blending bone-shuddering basslines with euphoric piano melodies, a recipe that resonated with his global audience. The release held a special place in Hardwell‘s performances, being the opening track for his ‘I AM Hardwell’ show, which he had been touring for the past year. The anticipation and excitement among fans were evident, especially following the success of his previous release ‘Dare You’, which had made significant chart impact.

At the time of ‘Everybody Is In The Place’ release, Hardwell was at the pinnacle of his career, gearing up for headline performances at Ultra Music Festival 2014 and a sold-out Revealed Recordings party at Mansion. This track exemplified his ability to create music that connected with audiences on a global scale, from Miami to Ibiza, reinforcing his status as a leading figure in the EDM scene.

Robbert van de Corput, known professionally as Hardwell, began his journey in DJing at the age of 13, drawing inspiration from the dance parties he saw on MTV. His early start led him to a career marked by experimentation in remixing and producing his music, shaping the EDM explosion of 2012-2013. ‘Everybody Is In The Place’ remains a testament to Hardwell‘s talent and his impact on the electronic dance music world, showcasing his ability to blend nostalgia with contemporary sounds in a way that captures the essence of the genre.
