Hardwell has owned one of the biggest tracks across the scene since releasing “Spaceman” back in January. Ten months later, Robbert is finally returning with the follow up track, “Apollo,” debuted at ADE last month. “Apollo” strikes with anthemic builds, deep bass kicks , and an unmatched drop. Along with a vocal from Amba Shepherd, Hardwell’s next single will be as ground breaking as his last, so keep an eye out for “Apollo” to hit the release circuit on November 26th.Posted by
Franky Rizardo and Roul & Doors make their debut on Revealed Recordings with “Elements,” a tribal, percussion-driven production. Hardwell and Dannic, who recently collaborated on “Say Nothing,” will release a remix of “Elements” alongside the original. Their dirtier more Dutch-oriented rendition of “Elements” is reminiscent of Congorock’s “Babylon,” which is not a bad thing. The duo’s styles seamlessly blend together in emphatic, big room unison. Check it out under the break.
Hardwell recently released an emotional Electric Zoo 2012 aftermovie. Instead of setting the video to one of his many high energy tracks, he gaves fans the opportunity to create an acoustic version of his massive song, “Spaceman.” The winner of the contest was Collin McLoughlin, an aspiring singer with a passion for dance music. McLoughlin has created highly trafficked covers of popular tracks like “Titanium” and “Save The World.” His acoustic version of “Spaceman” doesn’t fall short of the expectations he’s created for himself and is available for purchase via iTunes. Read on to hear his cover of “Titanium.”
Fresh off multiple collaborations with fellow Breda export Hardwell, Dutch DJ/producer Dannic is back with a solo release on his co-conspirator’s Revealed Recordings. On “Flare,” Dannic dresses a throwback acid bass line in all the trappings of mainstream progressive house, employing riser synths and stuttered snares to guide the listener through resonant builds and chord-driven breakdowns. While the track errs on the side of formulaic, it showcases Dannic’s technical acumen in a production tailored for dance floor traction. Expect to hear this one again on the festival circuit, and head to Beatport to grab your own copy.

A few weeks ago we introduced you guys to GLOWfest, a travelling EDM college tour focused on bringing the latest in music, technology, and philanthropic knowledge to campuses nationwide. Since then, GLOWfest has hosted two massive parties at Indiana University and West Virginia University, where Dancing Astronaut was able to catch up with Krewella for an interview and enjoy a night of great music amongst our fans at WVU.
While most aftermovies from festivals get us incredibly pumped up and immediately ready to party, Hardwell is trying a different approach. In his Electric Zoo aftermovie, Hardwell used an acoustic cover of “Call Me a Spaceman” by Colin McLoughlin to tell the story of why Robbert Van de Corput loves partying in New York. The acoustic version is available on iTunes if you like something a little lighter. If Hardwell is more your style, he’ll be back in NY on November 23rd at Pacha and make sure to checkout our coverage of his set a EZoo 2012.

From “Dear New York” to “Just One More Time Baby,” Firebeatz have been on a roll with their releases as of late. “Here We F*cking Go,” the duo’s latest contribution keeps that momentum going with a series of robust kicks and heavy synth work. Hardwell left fans yearning for more when he premiered the then unknown track in his Tomorrowland set, but the wait is finally over — “Here We F*cking Go” is now available for purchase via Beatport. More after the break.
Last month Toolroom TV showed us how to party in Ibiza, with appearances from electronic heavyweights Paul Oakenfold and Carl Cox. For its latest installment, the series features Dutch-based producer Hardwell, who gets us up to speed on all things Amsterdam ahead of this week’s Amsterdam Dance Event. Part music history lesson, part sight-seeing tour, the episode is sprinkled with tracks from Toolroom’s Amsterdam 2012 compilation album. Whether you’re headed to ADE or just wish you were, Toolroom TV has your pre-festival playlist covered. Preview the full album on Beatport, and check out the video above.Posted by

Breda, the Netherlands is probably the biggest DJ hometown in the world, and the city that brought us Tiesto, Hardwell, R3hab, and more is ready to unveil the newest producer to the world: Kill the Buzz. “Party Hard” is his first single to be releas
ed on Hardwell’s Revealed Recordings, and were admittedly a little thrown off when we heard Hardwell drop this during his Electric Zoo set, mistakenly thinking it was a new original of his own. The monumental synths and fast-paced bassline make the track perfect for giant crowds. No word on what’s next for the Breda native, but “Party Hard” is now available on Beatport.
