Where ‘Doster‘ saw him welcome 2012 with drum-heavy Electro House that touched on the rich Progressive vibes that he has become synonymous with, Dannic’s inaugural release of 2013 sees him go in a similar vein for ‘Clobber’.

First officially premiered in Hardwell’s Essential Mix late last year, Daan Romers makes his Toolroom Records debut with what is intended to be the follow-up to ‘Tombo‘. Jumping between blistering lead play and potent drum work, Dannic would struggle to find a more promising first release on the record label of Mark Knight.

Following on from a year of great success, Hardwell’s Revealed Recordings kickstarts the New Year with a fresh remix from label protégé Dannic of ‘Strong’ by Kid Massive, Alex Sayz and U.S. singer Miella.

Already boasting a strong melodic backbone within its original format, the added momentum of Dannic’s sharp synth work and edgy peak time riffage make for a relevant sound bite from the modern heyday of European Dance music as a whole.

Fresh off having dominated the overall Beatport chart with two weeks at the #1 spot, Nicky Romero and Nervo’s collaborative single ‘Like Home‘ gets the remix treatment from a diverse slew of producers from both sides of the pond.

While Los Angeles-born Dillon Francis embraces his downtempo mindset for a melodic headline remix, Dutch Revealed protégé Dannic serves up a synth-led take of peak-time energy throughout. Rounding out the package with his unorthodox approach to modern House music, Gregor Salto is on hand with a dark remix that balances heavy drum work and grinding chord play.

Where ‘Doster‘ saw him welcome 2012 with drum-heavy Electro House that touched on the rich Progressive vibes that he has become synonymous with, Dannic’s inaugural release of 2013 sees him go in a similar vein for ‘Clobber’.

First officially premiered in Hardwell’s Essential Mix late last month, Daan Romers makes his Toolroom Records debut with what is intended to be the follow-up to ‘Tombo‘. Jumping between blistering lead play and potent drum work, Dannic would struggle to find a more promising first release on the record label of Mark Knight.

Out on January 21st.

No strangers to the realms of unconventional club music, Franky Rizardo and Roul and Doors return hand-in-hand for a new release on Revealed Recordings, ‘Elements.’ Showcasing the same, tropically tinted stylings that pervaded their successful ‘Blackout‘ release on Flamingo, the Dutch trio are back to continue their collaborative affair with another fine example of drum-driven House music. Without folding to the more stereotypical regions associated with their homeland, the track’s infectious rhythmic progressions make for a worthy debut on the record label of Hardwell.

But in a turn for the heavier-set realms of Dance music, Hardwell and Dannic are on hand with a solid counterpart B-side in the form of a remix of grinding chord play and hands-in-the-air moments throughout.

Hardwell & Dannic remix:

In a return to remix duties, label head honcho turned DJ Mag #6 Hardwell and rising homeland peer Dannic continue their collaborative affair to take the reins of Franky Rizardo and Roul and Doors’ ‘Elements‘ for Hardwell’s own Revealed Recordings.

Digressing from the synth-laden sound that pervaded their remix of Example’s ‘Say Nothing‘, the duo swap the tropically tinted stylings of the original for a take of grinding chord play and hands-in-the-air moments. Despite not quite hitting in on the same inventive notes as the original, Hardwell and Dannic’s remix makes for a solid counterpart that is sure to be music to the ears of those more enthusiastic about the heavier-set realms of Dance music.

Out November 12th.

Stepping away from the drum-laden approach that has pervaded his latest originals, Hardwell protégé Daan Romers embraces his Dannic moniker once again to release his follow-up to ‘Fuego’ in ‘Flare’.

Dealing a blast of hard-hitting yet well-structured Electro House that touches on the rich Progressive vibes that his country has become synonymous with, Dannic’s digitally scored canvas of churning leads and mechanical beat work makes for a potent return to Revealed Recordings. Despite lacking a slight sense of originality, ‘Flare’ proves Romers worthy of the avenues that continue to open to the young Breda producer and his rapidly developing sound.

Stepping away from the drum-laden approach that has pervaded his latest originals, Hardwell protégé Daan Romers embraces his Dannic moniker to officially unveil his follow-up to ‘Fuego‘, returning to Revealed Recordings with Protocol Radio-premiered ‘Flare’.

Dealing a blast of hard-hitting yet well-structured Electro House that touches on the rich Progressive vibes that his country has become synonymous with, Dannic’s digitally scored canvas of churning leads and mechanical beat work makes for a potent contender for this year’s ADE. Despite lacking a slight sense of originality, Romers proves himself worthy of the avenues that continue to open to the young Breda producer and his rapidly developing sound.

Release date is set for October 29th on Revealed Recordings.

In a year that has already seen Robert Van De Corput excel the reputation of his Hardwell alias, rising homeland peer Dannic joins the Revealed Recordings flag bearer for remix duties of Example’s latest single ‘Say Nothing’.

Taking the reins of the Dirty South produced original, the rising Dutch stronghold drive a strong slew of uplifting synth leads alongside the catchy vocals of Elliot Gleave with maximal effect. Perhaps lacking the heavier properties one might have expected from such a dynamic Dutch studio union, the rich melodic character that Corput and his label mate bring to this high-profile remix is yet another homeland victory for Holland amid the thriving summer clubbing season.

Always on hand to show that Dutch House music isn’t all bleeps and euphoric synths, aspiring Breda producer Dannic and the likeminded homeland peer Jordy Dazz unite for a tough yet melodic upheaval upon the late summer clubbing season.

Back on track for Hardwell’s Revealed imprint once again, ‘Fuego’ embraces both artists’ obsession with intense percussive developments alongside the strong melodic surges and uplifting peak time energy that has characterised the label and its up and coming roster of late. In a sharp and defined installment of European Dance music at its more untamed heights, Dazz and Dannic breath another surge of adrenaline into the industry with yet another quality cut in the name of ascending Dutch talent.
