First played in Milan back in December and given a more formal premiere at Miami’s Ultra Music Festival last month, Hardwell and Dyro release their highly-anticipated single ‘Never Say Goodbye’, featuring vocals provided by Heather Bright, a.k.a. Bright Lights. Dealing in poignant melodic play and lengthy synth textures underneath Bright’s elegant vocal line, ‘Never Say Goodbye’ marks a continuation of the peak-time energy and well-crafted club cuts we have come to associate with Holland’s proficient Robbert van de Corput and his Amsterdam-bred protégé Jordy van Egmond.

Stay tuned for the release date.

Dutch festival regulars Laidback Luke and Hardwell combine forces for a new original release on Luke’s Mixmash Records in the form of ‘Dynamo’. Flipping from bright synths to overpowered low-end riffage and standalone lead play, the seething attitude of ‘Dynamo’ mirrors the high-octane sound scope club that this double-barrelled collaborative effort has invariably perfected. Far from an echo of the tediously popular Electro House stylings, Laidback Luke and Hardwell make formative festival fuel of this latest stern mark for Mixmash.

Slated for release May 20th through Revealed Recordings. Watch Hardwell and Dyro play the track at the UMF main stage and Hardwell’s official Miami 2013 aftermovie below.

After a year of well-received releases, exciting bootlegs and a tour-schedule that would cripple even the strongest seasoned DJ, it is safe to say that the punch behind Robbert van de Corput’s premature legacy is no short-lived fad. But still seeing heavy support on his last solo single, ‘Spaceman‘, Hardwell returns for the release of it’s very follow-up, ‘Apollo’.

First premiered at his Revealed event at club Escape in Amsterdam during this year’s ADE, ‘Apollo’ sees Hardwell joined by Sydney songstress Amba Shepherd for a mix of his uplifting synth work and Shepherd’s ethereal vocals. Still packing a strong punch within its grinding low-end beats, ‘Apollo’ proves itself something of a solid mark of musical maturity from Hardwell.

Now more comfortably associated with the globe’s biggest festivals, Dutch heavyweight Hardwell added another landmark to his belt with a debut Essential Mix for BBC Radio One last night. Off the back of an intense summer season which ended to the sound of further ascent of the DJ Mag Top 100 Awards poll, the Revealed ringleader brought his A-game to the airwaves for another career milestone.

In a whirlwind session of upfront crowd pleasers and exclusive picks from the cream of his imprint’s young roster, Hardwell’s fluid mixing style and knack for mash-ups saw his live energy translate seamlessly into his debut Essential Mix. With the addition of his new single ‘Apollo’ and forthcoming Laidback Luke collaboration ‘Dynamo’, this two-hour run was enough to illustrate that there is still plenty of excitement ahead of this European frontrunner.

Words by Dan Carter

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:

After a year of well-received releases, exciting bootlegs and a tour-schedule that would cripple even the strongest seasoned DJ, it is safe to say that the punch behind Robbert van de Corput’s premature legacy is no short-lived fad. But still seeing tremendous support on his last solo single, ‘Spaceman‘, Hardwell makes his return to unveil the official video teaser for it’s very follow-up, ‘Apollo’.

First premiered at his Revealed event at club Escape in Amsterdam last night, ‘Apollo’ sees Hardwell joined by Sydney songstress Amba Shepherd for a concoction of his signature uplifting synth leads and ethereal vocals. Still packing a strong punch within its grinding low-end beats, ‘Apollo’ proves itself something of a solid mark of musical maturity from Hardwell.

Out on November 26th

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.
