Hardwell’s Smash Hit “Spaceman” Turns 5 Years Old Today

Time flies, especially when it comes to music. Electronic music in particular is a genre that runs as fast as a cheetah, with trends that change seemingly overnight. Five years ago, EDM went mainstream and festivals like Ultra Music Festival and Electric Daisy Carnival became popular among die-hard EDM fans and new listeners alike. For many people, artists like Swedish House Mafia, deadmau5Tiësto and others were introductions to a whole new world of music.

Five years ago to the day, Hardwell released the smash hit that would help make him a star: “Spaceman.” Despite its age, every EDM fan on the planet can likely hum the recognizable tune from memory. “Spaceman” aided Hardwell in his catapult from rising producer to world-famous artist. Released right before one of his many-revered Ultra sets in 2012, “Spaceman” carries a massive amount of influence. It combined progressive builds with a bigroom backdrop, and a remix from Carnage paved the way for trap music as a whole. Since releasing “Spaceman,” Hardwell has scored #1 DJ on the DJ Mag poll twice, headlined every festival from Tomorrowland to Ultra, started the Revealed Recordings record label, produced a full-length album and much more. And while Hardwell’s dedication is the root of his success, “Spaceman” opened many doors for his career.

Hardwell’s “Spaceman” Finally Goes Gold In The US

Originally released in February 2012, Hardwell’s “Spaceman” has gone on to become one of his biggest hits of all time (in no small part to the festival trap remix from Carnage).

Now, after more than four years, the single has finally been certified Gold in the US by the RIAA, after selling more than 500,000 copies. Ironically, the award was presented to Hardwell after his performance at the 538 Jingle Ball in Amsterdam.

Hardwell remarked in a press release, “This award is the greatest Christmas gift I could think of. I think it’s amazing that ‘Spaceman’ has so many downloads in America!”
