Debuting at #24 in DJ Mag’s Top 100 DJ’s poll this year, the magnitude of Hardwell is far beyond remarkable. After a year that’s been jam packed with his well-known handiness in rendering hard-hitting piano smashes, the Breda born producer is starting to show indications of a possible veer in terms of elaborating the piano filled forerunners into a darker and more sophisticated signature sound. Initiated by the yet to be officially released remix on Louder, the recently released anthem of ”Energy, The Network” in 2012, Cobra, and his Beta collaboration with Nicky Romero, another thunderous example of his newly found liking for dark club-bangers is about to take off, as premiered on Saturday at Sensation White Innerspace in Copenhagen, Denmark.
Building his foundations with 2011’s early-bird hit singles Zero 76 (with Tiësto) and Encoded, Spaceman is, from the looks of it, the next in line to excel along to Hardwell’s proceeding ascent. Filling its break-down with bubblingly anthemic synth chords to pioneer for a leviathan drop, the rigorous and fierce characteristics of this new representative of his own Revealed Recordings is one to keep eyes and ears peeled out for in terms of its imminent release.
‘Spaceman’ is set for release on January 23rd.
