Tiësto’s album crafts the club experience perfectly, using his own original productions and remixes as the driving force behind the album.

A special release for all of Hardwell’s internet friends came today! After reaching 200,000 likes on Facebook, Hardwell has given away his edit/remix of Knife Party’s ‘Internet Friends’. The Hardwell propaganda gets a little annoying, and if you don’t like the hard pounding original then this is the track for you.

Hardwell’s new track ‘Kontiki’ has been lingering in set lists since the fall and made its Beatport premier  on Monday. The original is not all that, however the remix by Dutch peer Dyro is a track you don’t want to ignore. Already reaching the tenth spot on Beatport’s Electro House chart, Dyro’s remix starts with the same chord progression and then the track flips, when the dominating Electro build and drop takeover. Dyro’s remix explodes with energy. Hits harder, and deeper and has replaced the original in Hardwell’s sets since Ultra. Remixes like this one, make it apparent that there is a new wave of Dutch talent still waiting to explode upon the industry.

Hardwell drops the Dyro remix at Ultra.

NO_ID’s identity has been conformed. The Dutch duo has been adopted as Axwell’s new protege. International recognition started with their debut at Cosmic Opera in New York and their addition to team Axtone. With remixes in the making with; David Guetta & Nicky Romero, Thomas Gold and Henrik B. NO_ID is set to have  an amazing year. They already played Miami 5 times throughout Miami Music week and showcased their talent with back to back nights at Swedish House Mafia’s exclusive Masquerade Motel. Their first release ‘Zelda’ has festival Anthem potential.

Hardwell adds his touch to this track with an Edit. Dutch on Dutch!

Jetting in at #24 in DJ Mags Top 100 poll, its safe to say that Hardwell has been revealed. Fueled by his collab with Tiesto, ‘Zero 76’, and a spree of hit remixes, Hardwell’s reputation is still soaring. Hardwell returns to Revealed Recordings, enhancing the labels purpose as a platform for young aspirants to build their foundations. Michael Brun is a Haitian bred DJ residing in the US and ‘Dawn’ is his ground breaker.

‘Dawn’ rises from a soothing break down and altisonant synths and heavy kicks. Hardwell decided to add his own touch to the 26th release on the label.
