Regarded as one of the founding fathers of the Future House movement, it’s evident why Dutch DJ/Producer Don Diablo is seen as a pioneer of the dance music world. Currently #11 in the DJ Mag Top 100 Poll – making him the highest placing artist in the Future House category – Don has earned praise from talent and tastemakers across the globe for major hits such as ‘On My Mind’, ‘Universe’, ‘Anytime’, ‘Chemicals’ and ‘Cutting Shapes’ and is set to release his forthcoming artist album next year.
A hugely in demand remixer Don’s portfolio includes the likes of Ed Sheeran, Rihanna, Bastille, Madonna, Birdy, Chainsmokers, Coldplay, DJ Snake, Justin Bieber and many more, leading him to become the #2 most played remixer of the year. Besides this, he has also gone on to collaborate with and produce for artists such as Kelis, Alex Clare, Dragonette, Diplo and Tiësto to name just a few. A packed global tour schedule sees him play in excess of 250 live shows a year, taking to the main stage of renowned festivals Tomorrowland, EDC, Creamfields, Mysteryland, Lollapolooza and Ultra, whilst also selling out his 2016/17 Headline Artist shows in the UK, US & the rest of Europe.
Launched in 2015, Don’s record label “HEXAGON” won Best New Label on Beatport with the most Top 10 records in its first year and as a producer Don has also been credited as the “best selling house & future house artist of all time” on Beatport. His HEXAGON Radio Show is currently broadcast in over 35 countries globally, holds a weekly Top 10 position in the iTunes podcast section every week reaching millions of people across the planet. This year alone the release of records like ‘Momentum,’ ‘Save A Little Love,’ ‘Children of A Miracle’ and ‘Don’t Let Go’ have accumulated well over 100 million combined streams on Spotify and YouTube. In October 2017, Don premiered his latest single with burgeoning US band A R I Z O N A, ‘Take Her Place’ during his performance at Amsterdam Music Festival, inviting lead singer Zach to perform live on stage to a 40,000 strong crowd. An instant fan favorite, the epic collaboration was released a week later and has been garnering attention from talent and tastemakers around the world since.
The talented Dutchman has further demonstrated his creative flair through his huge passion for film & cinematography, which has led to him producing all of his own music videos and in 2017 he scored the title song for international Sci-Fi film “Kill Switch.” In the past Don’s music has been used for series ranging from CSI to Teenwolf, with Warner Brothers asking Don to create the worldwide theme song for the much acclaimed “Batman Arkham Origins” game. The track and accompanying video became an instant viral hit racking up millions of YouTube plays and global hype. With an eye for fashion and trends, Don’s self-designed HEXAGON merchandise line sells out within hours. Following the launch of his first official fashion line in August 2017, his pop up store created road-blocking lines at this year’s Amsterdam Dance Event.
