Relentless Beats

Touching Base with Dyro

Dyro is a DJ and a producer and is well known for his work with guys like Hardwell, Tiësto and Dannic. Most of his work is published on Revealed Recordings, and he continues to push the limit producing some of the best progressive big room house music around. Oh, and he is only 23 years old! I’m a big fan, if you couldn’t tell. He recently did a free download of his new single “WOLV” when he hit 1,000,000 Facebook Likes. That is a pretty big deal! “Thanks! The feedback on that song has been huge, the fans knew a new ‘WOLV’ edit was coming since we played a clip in Dyro’s Diaries a while ago. We have had big names like David Guetta, Lucky Date and Henry Fong dropping the edit in their.”

Tell me more about Dyro’s Diaries. “Dyro’s Diaries is my video series that follows what I’m up to – behind the decks, on the road and at home. I wanted to have more control over what was out there surrounding my image and sound. My friend and talented filmmaker Tom van den Berg films all the episodes, which gets me relaxed when we start a new session of filming, even if we’re backstage at busy events.”

I always wonder where a DJ comes up with his or her name. Dyro’s real name is Jordy Van Egmond. “Dyro is an anagram of my first name.” Almost too easy! I mentioned Revealed Recordings earlier. That is Hardwell’s label. Hardwell is no. 1 again this year. Is he your favorite DJ? “I have a great respect and admiration for what he does both musically and with his label and team – he offered me some amazing tips when I was first starting out and he has been no. 1 for 2 years running because he has a strong dedication to the industry.”

Earlier this year Dyro was in Miami for Miami Music Week. I wonder if he had fun… “I did! We had our WOLV party, some other great shows with the Revealed crew and the sunshine was out – I can’t complain!” Last year I remember Dannic x Dyro x Hardwell at Ultra. You guys do anything like that this year? “Yeah, myself and Robbert surprised the crowd during Daan’s set at the DJ Mag pool party – the fans loved it, and the energy was high!”

So what’s next for Dyro? “We have a lot of exciting releases coming on WOLV just in time for the summer and we’re working on some new Dyro’s Diaries episodes! This huge Asia tour also has me really excited and I’m hoping to work on some new edits for summer when I’m on the road!”

Anything else? “Stay true to yourself, stay daring and keep doing and supporting what you love!”
