Fedde le grand does it again with his fourth beatport #1 this year!
Three number 1 hits in a year would be enough for almost anyone – but then Fedde le Grand isn’t ‘almost anyone’.
Less than 1 week since its release on Beatport, Fedde’s So Much Love has rightfully taken the #1 spot after a staggering swell of support from fellow DJs and YouTube fans – with almost a quarter of a million tuning in to watch the accompanying video on YouTube in the same seven day space, making it one of Fedde’s most popular videos!

Fedde said: “Preparing my Summer Takeover tour sets, I always like to do some rework of existing tracks. One of the tracks that came by was "So Much Love To Give" by Together (aka Thomas Bangalter & DJ Falcon), which uses a sample from "Love Is Such A Wonderful Thing" by the 70's disco act The Real Thing.
That original track was embedded on one of the first funk albums I bought, and I’ve listened to it since I was about 13, which is why the "Together" version has always been such an inspiration to me.
The first live reactions were great, and I'm happy to see a lot of people now look for my version of this all time classic!”
The track, released through long-time label collaborators Toolroom, is already proving to be one of the Dutchman’s biggest ever hits, and follows in the wake of Missing, Autosave and Metrum as his fourth #1 on Beatport this year alone.
2011 has now firmly cemented itself as the year of le Grand. His productions have come thick and fast since he took to his new studio in January.
With his summer Takeover Tour, a residency at the world's number 1 club Space, debut gigs at Coachella and EXIT, North and South American tours and his constant criss-crossing of the European circuit, fans and critics have been blown away by Fedde’s exhilarating energy in the mix as much as by his unbeatable prowess in the studio.
