Well, consider this: Gartner’s newest single with British house-music producer Mark Knight, “Conscindo,” held the #1 spot on Beatport’s dance-music charts for two weeks in July, and in the past two years, he’s had eight other tracks make it to the top, including Beatport’s best-selling track of 2009, “Wolfgang’s 5th Symphony.”
Then there’s his awards nominations: He was nominated in the DJ Awards’ Best Newcomer category and also made the top-100 list for America’s Best DJ. Voting is under way for both.
Gartner has remixed everyone from Britney Spears to Timbaland and Black Eyed Peas and is currently working with Tiësto, Will.I.Am and Kaskade on separate forthcoming releases. His most recent accolade is his conquering of the dance stage at Lollapalooza last weekend, where he also rocked the Undocumented afterparty at Vision Nightclub in Chicago.
