It’s already been two months since Hardwell stopped touring, but fortunately this decision has left him with more time to work on and release new music. The latest addition to his extensive catalog is “Being Alive,” a long-awaited track featuring JGUAR that was originally debuted at Tomorrowland this past summer. “Being Alive” follows the Dutch producer’s early December collaboration with Conor Maynard titled, “How You Love Me.”

In typical Hardwell fashion, JGUAR’s vocals frame the introduction of the song and build into an energetic progressive drop. Should the track remind fans of one of Hardwell’s earliest releases, “Apollo,” it is because this is the official follow up song of the release according to the producer’s Twitter. “Being Alive” is out now on Hardwell’s very own Revealed Recordings.

Weekend Rewind: Relive Hardwell’s peak during his 2012 BBC Radio 1 Essential Mix

Weekend Rewind: Relive Hardwell’s peak during his 2012 BBC Radio 1 Essential MixHardwell Performing

Since it’s been a few months since Hardwell played his final live show following an official announcement that he’d retire from touring, now feels like the perfect time to revisit the hectic sets and infectious sounds that catapulted him into notoriety. His BBC Radio 1 Essential Mix from 2012 captures this iconic aesthetic perfectly, featuring “Apollo” and other original works that would later become the some of the heaviest weapons in his crate, plus other gems of the time like  Porter Robinson‘s “Language.”

The artist gives fans insight into how he got his start during the introduction per usual Essential Mix protocol, reflecting that his style is between progressive and electro house and noting that he signed to his first label at just 14 years old. Although he has recently stopped touring, Hardwell is still producing music — meaning the wild energy fans have grown to love will live on through his original releases.

Hardwell – Kicking It Hard

This post was originally published on this site

Hardwell – Kicking It HardKicking It Hard Hardwell 1

Those who know Hardwell already know he’s well capable of “Kicking It Hard;” however, his latest and fittingly-titled track really cements this fact. The three-minute stomper kicks into high gear with high-pitched big room synths and monstrous kicks, opening into a drop meant for maximum chaos. Housed  Hardwell’s own Revealed Recordings, we have a feeling quite a few of his colleagues will pick it up to add a bit of rowdiness into their fall season sets.

“Kicking It Hard” might conjure some bittersweet feelings among fans, however. The producer announced his retirement from DJing over summer, with his last performance set to be live streamed from ADE. Hearing tracks like this live will certainly be missed, but his legacy will remain.

 

 

Hardwell’s final DJ performance will be live-streamed

All good things come to an end… for now. For Hardwell fans, they will have one final chance to see the Dutch producer perform live at Amsterdam Dance Event on October 18. For those who are unable to make it overseas, the all-ages show will be live-streamed across numerous social and digital channels from ADE.

Just last month, Hardwell detailed in a Facebook post his decision to focus on himself. He writes, “I have grown from an ambitious kid with everything to gain into the 30-year old I am today whilst evolving as an artist with triple the speed of my aging process. Over the past few years I’ve come to know myself better and better and over time I realized that there’s still so much I want to share with my family and friends, so many roads I’d like to explore, but being Hardwell 24/7 leaves too little energy, love, creativity and attention for my life as a normal person to do so.”

Tune in with Hardwell and the Metropole Orkest’s Symphony: The Global Revolution of Dance at 8 p.m. CEST on October 18 at the Ziggo Dome Amsterdam.

Hardwell releases first original track since announcing his departure from touring

Hardwell releases first original track since announcing his departure from touringHardwell GerardHenninger E1536331711421

Hardwell has been gracing the music headlines lately after announcing that he is stepping away from touring indefinitely. In a Sept. 7 Facebook post, the artist stated that he’s neglected to work on the person behind his Hardwell moniker and will be taking some time to do so with family and friends. Despite stepping away from an insane touring schedule, his music production hasn’t slowed.

The producer has just released a brand new original track with Suyano less than two weeks after the announcement. The high-energy release is another main stage anthem that would have been the perfect addition to his live performances, but fans will have to wait to hear it come from Hardwell himself. With stuttered vocals and a pounding bass kick, these two producers have created a reggae-infused big room heater. Its laid-back Caribbean-inspired verses contrast greatly from its powerful drop and chorus, making it accessible for fans of a variety of genres.

The track is out on the producer’s own Revealed Recordings, and an accompanying music video is out here.

Hardwell adds a big house filter to U2’s ‘Summer Of Love’

Hardwell adds a big house filter to U2’s ‘Summer Of Love’Hardwell U2 Remi

U2 releases a slew of remixes of their single, “Summer Of Love,” from their 2017 Songs Of Experience album. Hardwell, who recently announced he’s planning to taking a break from touring, took a shot at a remake. Although the Revealed Recordings helmer is taking time off from his famously unending itinerary, he’s still releasing singles, and added studio time should be a direct result of a touring hiatus. Adding a big room ambiance with hard hitting drums and a strong lead synth atop rumbling sub bass, the Dutch DJ builds anticipation through lush synth plucks underneath Bono’s inspiring vocals.

The Irish rock band also enlisted talents of Robin Schulz, Tilt, Danny Stubbs, Howie B, Rusty Egan, and HP Hoeger for remix work. They’re currently in the middle of their U2 eXPERIENCE + iNNOCENCE world tour. Listen to Hardwell’s big room take on “Summer of Love” below.
