Dutch DJ, producer Hardwell, real name Robbert van de Corput has been on a recent media run promoting his debut artist album United We Are. He recently appeared on U.K. radio show Capital FM to discuss his album, his upcoming tour and give some prediction for the year ahead in 2015. The "Sally" DJ is given the floor on who he thinks are the five guys to watch in 2015.

He picks largely from his pool of label signees and collaborators, but when the number one DJ in the world gives out an endorsement as a name to watch, it is worth paying attention to.

His first selection is Julian Calor, a recent addition to Hardwell's label Revealed Recordings. According to Corput, Calor's music is very unique. He goes on to explain, "Sound-wise, it's completely, different from any EDM thing I've heard before." He makes the comparison to the great deadmau5, saying his chords are "A bit like deadmau5 back in the day." Calor has an album on the way in 2015.

Next up is his good friend Kill The Buzz, who has been releasing music on Revealed for the past few years and is very diverse in his productions according to the "Dare You" DJ.

The only non-Dutch DJ on the list, DallasK is his third selection. They collaborated to create "Area 51" from United We Are and there is plenty more to come.

Another Hardwell collaborator gets a nod at number four, Joey Dale, who contributed to United We Are with the track "Arcadia." Corput praised the demos he has been hearing from Dale recently.

Last, but not least, the name who has had the most success of late, Thomas Newson gets the final nod from Hardwell with originals and remixes on Revealed. He is also the son of veteran trance DJ, Marco V, which provided a ripe environment for Newson to become the successful producer he is today.
