1) Martin Garrix
Dubbed as EDM’s youngest superstar, 20-year-old Martin Garrix sure knows how to entertain his audience.

He was also named as one of the Top 3 DJs of 2015 by DJ Mag.
2) DJ Snake
Grammy-nominated French DJ and record producer DJ Snake is another artist you should definitely put on your list. In case you’ve been living under a rock, his hit “Turn Down For What” has been playing on the airwaves, at gigs and parties, and just about everywhere since he released it last 2013. Other songs he’s known for are “Lean On,” “Cold Water,” and his most-recent single “Let Me Love You” in collaboration with Justin Bieber. Craving for club vibes? Give in to DJ Snake’s bite.
Dutch electronic music duo Willem van Hanegem and Ward van der Harst have been in the scene since 2007. They have travelled the globe, performing in popular music fests such as Tomorrowland and Ultra Music Festival. The two became popular for fusing melodic elements of trance with the raw intensity of electro and progressiveness of house. If you need a boost of energy, their highly-energetic remixes will surely pump you up—and yeah, even put you on the path of a natural high.
4) Laidback Luke
Laidback Luke had songs from dance legends Green Velvet and Moodymann as his first projects.

“Intro pa lang, ulam na” is the perfect phrase to describe Blasterjaxx’s remixes. Blasterjaxx is an electronic music duo made up of Thom Jongkind and Idir Makhlaf. These Dutch DJs are known for their snazzy rhythms, easy drops, and breezy melodies.
