Since the release of an unofficial remix of Dr. Dre's "The Next Episode" in 2011, introducing the audience to HEDEGAARDs unique sound, he has produced several of the biggest Nordic hits in the last decade; generating more than - mindblowing - 1.4 billion streams across streamingplatforms.
"Happy Home" with Lukas Graham and "Twerk It Like Miley" with Brandon Beal and Christopher, are just a couple of the major hits HEDEGAARD has released and produced over the past years, resulting in several #1 all over the World. Before recently, turning his focus back to the clubs.
On the singles "JUMANJI" and "SA-MY-D", HEDEGAARD returned to the rap-club fusion he invented years ago, which led to his big breakthrough and earned him the undisputed title in club music, as the "King of Car Music". The release of the single "ALL DESIGNER" had a global impact, with #1 positions in Southern Europe, the Baltics and China; followed up by the single "JEEP", as the first release under a new multi-year artist and label deal with the world's leading label in club music, Spinnin Records, which included the launch of his own record company OneHundred, with a focus on developing artists releasing music in the globally trending Car Music genre.
With the release of the single “NYC BABY”, and the localized version “BEIJING BABY” - released exclusively in China – he took the top spot once again on the weekly QQ Music EDM Chart. Later on the single took second place on the quarterly version of the same chart, for the entire Q2. The follow up singles “BORED” and “The Ones We Lost” entered the top20 and became HEDEGAARDs 4th and 5th top20 entry in a row; underlining his status as the hottest EDM artist in China.
That status was recently further substantiated by enormous viral attention on the Chinese social media Douyin, where HEDEGAARD accepted a remix challenge from the influencer Sander Kole; resulting in an 8 minute video that has generated more than 71 million views, and +2 million likes.
In a genre dominated by ghost production, HEDEGAARD is a 100% self-made artist; first and foremost being a naturally gifted musician, who turned his focus towards DJing - in that order.
Monthly listeners on Spotify ranges between 1.1 to 1.7 million, and the streaming total of 2022 on the platform was more than 54 million (over 1 million streams a week); figures achieved solely on organic growth, leading to the only conclusion: The audience loves the sound of HEDEGAARD.
The reward for his work does not only come the form of impressive streaming numbers, but has also resulted in nominations at award shows. HEDEGAARD has previously won several DMA awards, DJ and Club Awards, and as the top nominee at the Club Awards 2024, in five categories, and with a big share in a nomination in a sixth category, the feat is second to none in Denmark.
With his international contract and debut tours in Asia and the US in the autumn of 2023, he is looking towards bigger shows and releases in 2024. The HEDEGAARD story has only just begun.
