Watch Hardwell Drop A Hip Hop & Moombahton Set At Electric Daisy Carnival [VIDEO]

Earlier in the week, we reported that Hardwell had made a special announcement that he would be playing an unadvertised special set at Electric Daisy Carnival Las Vegas, deviating from his big room style and diving into hip-hop and moombahton.

In a previous interview with the Las Vegas Sun, Hardwell explained that his roots are in hip hop.

“I started out as a hip-hop DJ... It’s been a long time since I’ve performed a proper hip-hop set.”

Apparently, one of the last times he DJ'd a hip hop set was last year when he threw down a private set for Pasquale Rotella, Insomniac Events founder.

The Dutch DJ unleashed the special set as promised for EDC fans last night, taking over the Mayan Art Car at 10pm to a stacked crowd of excited fans.

Check check, what’s up EDC? My name is Hardwell, are you guys ready for something different?

His set delivers a wide array of hip hop beats, even mixing in Big Sean’s “I Don’t Fuck With You” at one point.

Check out the set below...
