When 'Put Your Hands Up For Detroit' went to No.1 in the UK singles chart in late 2006, Fedde Le Grand went from being a well-known DJ in his home country of The Netherlands to achieving worldwide recognition. The subsequent years saw continued international chart success and consistently heavy touring. The hard work has certainly paid off, with Fedde's star in the ascendancy with each ensuing year, as he climbs closer to the top of the Top 100. With over 100 DJ dates around the world under his belt so far in 2010, Fedde is not one to rest on his laurels. "I think that you have to look at each year as it passes like a learning experience," he says regarding his ongoing hectic work schedule. "You can take things that happened and see what you've achieved, how you can improve on things, how you can push yourself to do even better the next year."
