Fedde Le Grand has been a staple of the Netherlands' electronic dance music scene since the early 2000s, when he co-founded the renowned Sneakerz club night in Amsterdam and the Hague. But in the past few years, the Dutch DJ/producer has has enjoyed a meteoric rise to fame, starting with the massive commercial success of his track "Put Your Hands Up 4 Detroit." It became one of the most ubiquitous electro-house tracks of 2006. The following year Le Grand swept the International Dance Music Awards at Winter Music Conference, scoring Best Breakthrough Solo Artist, Best Breaks/Electro Sound, and Best Underground House Track. In 2007 he also garnered two Danish Deejay Awards and and Australian MTV Award.

Le Grand's industry accolades and record sales have only grown with the release of high-profile remixes for the likes of Sharam, Pete Tong, and Robbie Williams, as well as compilation mixes for Ministry of Sound and Kontor Records. When "Let Me Think About It," a 2008 collaboration with Ida Corr, reached number two on the U.K. Singles Chart and number one on the U.S. Billboard Hot Dance Airplay chart in 2008, Le Grand's crossover appeal was cemented. But is there any truth to the hype? This Saturday is your chance to find out, when he stops by Mansion in South Beach.

Fedde Le Grand. 10 p.m. Saturday, December 19. Mansion, 1235 Washington Ave., Miami Beach. Tickets cost $20 in advance from wantickets.com. Ages 21+ with ID. 305-531-5535; mansionmiami.com
