While fans have grown to love the Dutch electro style that Dyro has brought in the past, the Revealed Recordings mainstay makes a much-appreciated venture to the melodic side with “You Gotta Know.” The track edges closer to progressive than we have ever seen from the festival-headlining artist, and evokes emotion through elegant vocals before handing the listener’s musical fate to Dyro himself. With the melodic approach that originally brought the electronic music craze to the forefront of our society, Radboud assists the Netherlands-native in delivering a brilliant production that serves to complement the aggressive festival style with the happier overtone which many crave. While we have come to expect high quality tracks from Dyro, this latest release showcases his diverse talent, proving he is deserving of his high-profile name.
As an up-and-coming producer, Thomas Newson appears to be living the dream. Not only has he received incredible support from Hardwell and the rest of the Revealed Recordings posse, but the young artist’s previous release, “Flute,” was praised for its innovative integration of the flute into dance music. His latest release, “Pallaroid,” is no exception to the quality music for which Thomas has been known. Originally believed to be an unreleased Hardwell track, Newson’s electro house production gives a nod to his Dutch roots. Introducing a sharp lead that serves to sonically saw through anything in its path, the track maintains its high energy with a catchy riff. With no shortage of new talent from the Netherlands emerging, it will be interesting to see how Newson will differentiate himself from the pack throughout the continuation of his career.
Premiered during his performance at ADE alongside a live appearance from Matthew Koma, the newly crowned #1 DJ in the world returns for his first release after being voted the best DJ on the planet. While the past few releases from Hardwellhave been more aggressive electro house, “Dare You” brings a significant amount of melody to the table which is paired with Koma’s time tested vocals. The single marks another notch in the belt for the newly minted #1 DJ in the world as the 25 year old powerhouse begins his reign at the top of dance music.

This is what happens when two of dance music’s biggest talents get together in the studio. With a slew of huge releases under both their belts, it’s no secret that Hardwell and W&W are the two most in demand assets in dance music today. After making waves at this year’s Ultra Music Festival, the then unnamed collaboration sprung up across the internet in low quality rips and shoddy bootlegs. Since then fans have been catching glimpses of the track in Hardwell’s sets throughout the festival circuit, all waiting for an official release date of the mind-numbingly massive ouput. Stamped with the final title “Jumper” (it had been referred to as “Jump” for the last few months) the collaboration will finally see the light of day on August 5th via Revealed Recordings.
One of the standout tracks from Hardwell’s set at Ultra 2013, “Footrocker” represents the Mightyfools most stellar output to date. Further refining their tastes for punchy bass lines, the duo behind “Drum Fail” incorporate a twisted backbone of electro pops and hisses on their latest original. Less gritty than some of the genre’s most recent releases, Mightyfools create breakdowns with character, toning down the heavy and turning up the bounce. It is evident that the duo have begun to find their pace, delivering infectious and inspired peak time productions that further improve the big room electro that Revealed Recordings is known for.
One of the most anticipated tracks of 2013 from the Revealed imprint comes at the hands of one of the label’s promising understudies, Dyro. After receiving heaps of support from Hardwell at Ultra Music Festival and throughout Miami Music Week, Dyro‘s most impressive production to date gears up for its official April 29th release date with a short preview. Separating himself from the pack of new production talents in his peripheral, Dyro has put together a uniquely menacing electro house track – one that establishes both a unique sound and a strong foothold for the budding producer in 2013.
Previewed on the 100th episode of Hardwell on Air, Alvaro‘s debut release on Revealed Recordings is anything but subtle. Infused with a heavy helping of Dutch flair, “Rock Music” embodies it’s namesake with festival-friendly chord progressions and a feverishly frenetic breakdown. With a heavy-handed drop and aggressive synth stabs reminiscent of the Dutch sound that took the scene by storm in 2010, Alvaro’s latest is an Ultra Music Festival staple in the making.
Coming off the high of year that put them on the map and all over it, genre-blending W&W have wasted no time in setting the stage for an even bigger 2013. On the heels of yesterday’s announcement that they would join Armin van Buuren on ASOT 600 NYC comes a preview for their latest track, “The Code.” The duo again teamed up with Ummet Ozcan on the track, giving it their signature big room sound, punchy synths and relentless drops. Already dropped in Hardwell’s Essential Mix, the track will be released February 4 on Revealed Records.
Hardwell‘s Revealed Recordings continues into 2013 with the release of Kid Massive & Alex Sayz’s thunderous original “Strong.” Featuring the ethereal vocals of Miella, the two producers tread delicately between big room chord progressions and adrenaline laced electronica. “Strong” builds slowly, coerced into submission by the gorgeous choral efforts of Miella. White noise hums amidst powerful kicks as the energy pushes upwards before reaching it’s peak, dropping abruptly into a cascade of stuttering electro chops and twisted synthesis.”Strong” marks another strong offering for Hardwell‘s imprint, which has seen a staggering array of genre-defining releases since its inception in 2010.
