Nearly two years ago to this date, Hardwell showcased some of his then-rookie artists with Revealed Recordings‘ Talent Revealed EP. With that extended play came the introduction of Dyro, whose career has since been incubated with the imprint and is now one of dance music’s biggest young successes. Now back with the second installment of Talent Revealed, released today, Hardwell is making way for more potential stars. In the spotlight this time around are efforts from Julian Calor, Row Rocka, and Lush & Simon — names you’re probably not familiar with yet, but may very well break through after this Hardwell-sponsored push. The three-track outing builds on Revealed’s signature sound, so listen for yourself – maybe you’ll catch the next Dyro.Posted by
Amidst autumn of 2013, dance music’s trends and activity can be highlighted by Hardwell at the helm of all aritsts, and Sensation making its round across the states following the close of festival season. Before the aforementioned artist had his current anthemic arsenal and before the all white event had reached American soil, the two became one in 2011 at Innerspace, Denmark. Revisit Hardwell’s style at time when he was only skyrocketing towards the superstar status he’s reached today and wake up with one of his throwback Sensation sets from across the Atlantic.
Note Warning: The tracklist (found below the break) will evoke severe nostalgia.
Hardwell‘s dominance of 2013 has been impossible to ignore since claiming the year as his own at Ultra Music Festival this March. The then-unidentified hits that filled his landmark set have been slowly revealing themselves over the past seven months, with their impact strengthening exponentially with each subsequent release. Through the summer months particularly, his Dyro collaboration “Never Say Goodbye,” work with W&W on “Jumper,” and remixes for the likes of Krewella and Mark Knight have put chart-topping aspirations of electronic contemporaries out of reach as the young producer has run full steam ahead.
Adding another anthem to his catalogue of hits, Hardwell has finally released his collaboration with MAKJ, “Countdown,” which has been on the clock since the aforementioned Ultra appearance. Many of the recent big room records that have taken dance floors by storm pale in comparison to the festival-ready elements of “Countdown,” as Hardwell and MAKJ deliver provocatively on all ends. One listen through answers any question of hype and even sends a reminder of what a proper main stage staple should sound like.
For anyone unlucky enough to not attend TomorrowWorld’s US debut, Hardwell has uploaded the video of his entire set on the massive festival’s Main Stage. True to form, the Revealed label head and big room electro pioneer destroyed the Main Stage much the same way he did at Tomorrowland a few months prior. Press play and take the next hour and 20 minutes to experience what you missed, or relive what you experienced.
Hardwell’s Revealed Recordings is back in the wake of with volume two of its Talent Revealed EP series. Two years down the line from the inauguration of the series and in the build up to Hardwell & MAKJ’s impending collaboration, Revealed bands together three of its more poignant secret weapons ahead of Amsterdam Dance Event. Dutch youngster Julian Calor leads proceedings with uplifting yet heavy-hitting “Space Dial,” leaving 16-year-old talent Row Rocka to shed his new school stripes with a festival primed cut primed for the label’s soundscope. Italian duo Lush & Simon conclude the second strike of this new talent marathon with melodic electro set-piece “Adrenaline,” asserting that after one of their most prolific years to date, Revealed Recordings have a firm eye set on the future of their craft.
