A popular belgian band: Clouseau (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Clouseau_%28band%29). Maybe you'll like some of their songs :).

Personally not a big fan of Dutch music when it's sung in Dutch. Some bands sing in English, like Kensington (I like the song War a lot) and Dutch DJs are very popular (Tiƫsto, Hardwell, Afrojack, Armin van Buuren, Nicky Romero, Laidback Luke). Not a fan of Dutch music in general so I'd suggest checking through this list: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_bands_from_the_Netherlands. You can also check out the hit lists by Dutch radio stations. Qmusic: http://q-music.nl/programmas/itunes_top_30. 3FM: http://megatop50.3fm.nl/. You should look up the songs you don't know, as some of the Dutch music is in English (so I would't just look for Dutch titles). Good luck!
