With big successes already achieved in his still short career,
Jay Hardway is proving to be a special one. His collaborations
with wonderboy Martin Garrix are big dance floor bangers, receiving
worldwide support from the biggest names in the scene. Born
in small town Drunen (The Netherlands), Jay Hardway started
producing music when he was fourteen years old. Starting with
small gigs in pubs on his 18th he soon played for bigger crowds
in clubs. Inspired by Tie¨sto because of his ideas about
DJ- ing, as well as by the productions of Afrojack, Laidback
Luke and Vato Gonzalez, he developed his own skills. Four years
later, after doing lots of hard work and producing, Jay Hardway
has two big releases on his resume.
His track ‘Error 404’ with Martin Garrix, released
in March 2013, reached #16 in the Beatport chart. The tune,
released on Doorn Records, has over 1.8 million views on YouTube.
This resulted in a growing number of bookings around the globe.
The rising star of Jay Hardway, real name Jobke Heiblom, was
also noticed by Spinnin’ Records, the worlds leading most
independent record label, and ACE Agency, who holds big names
such as Afrojack, Martin Garrix, Sidney Samson and NERVO.
The collaboration with teen superstar Martin Garrix was such
a great success, that the two teamed up again on ‘Wizard’.
With support from the biggest DJ’s in the world, 3,6 million
views on YouTube in one week, a #1 position in the DMC Buzz
Chart a week before release and a phenomenal #1 position on
Beatport two days after the release, ‘Wizard’ is
about to become one of this year’s, and next year’s,
biggest EDM hits. His impressive ‘Inspire’ podcasts
are frequently online and Jay Hardway did some successful remixes
for Norwegian singer Margaret Berger and Dutch duo The Opposites.
With gigs around the globe and the quick rise of ‘Wizard’
now it’s officially released, it’s safe to say that
Jay Hardway’s agenda will be a lot busier next year. And
his star will keep on rising.
