Hardwell’s North American Bus Tour Continues



Hardwell has been topping charts and setting his name in stone as one of the best DJs in the world. For those of you who don’t know him, it’s about time you do… at least a little bit.

Robbert van de Corput, a.k.a. Hardwell, is a big room house DJ hailing from the Netherlands. His career started at the age of 12 when he DJed his friend’s birthday party. That was his first ever gig. With the help of his parents, Hardwell began to DJ at numerous clubs between 14 and 18 years of age. His parents were the only way he would be allowed into the clubs. This was about the time he had his first record signing, at 14 years old. Fast forward to 2008, Hardwell claimed the #1 spot six times in a row on the Dutch dance chart… yes six times in a row! In 2010, Hardwell moved up from the local club scene for a shot to play at Privilege in Ibiza for Tiesto’s Club Life event. That year also sprouted Revealed Recordings, Hardwell’s very own record label which now is home to a handful of artists such as Dyro and W&W.

For those of you who enjoy listening to BPM on Sirius XM, you may have heard of “Hardwell On Air”, which is Hardwell’s weekly aired show. What started as a Podcast in 2011, has now grown to become one of the Top 10 Podcasts on iTunes in over 40 countries, and is now broadcasted to over 65 international radio stations. His collaboration with Tiesto on “Zero 76”, which claimed #1 on Beatport, helped him to earn the #24 spot on DJ Mag’s Top 100 DJs.

“Spaceman” was released in 2012 (I urge you to check out the Carnage remix), which has been remixed more times than you can count with your hands and was his biggest solo-track. 2012 also brought Hardwell the honor of playing main stage at Tomorrowland, which he has been a contender of every year since then. He entered the DJ Mag Top 100 again, except this time he took the #6 spot. The 2013 DJ Mag Top 100 was a different story though, Hardwell claimed the #1 spot over the five time in a row winner, Armin van Buuren. This was the same story for 2014, claiming #1 yet again.

Today, Hardwell continues to release chart topping tracks, with the most recent release being “Blackout”. His tours are massive; consider the I Am Hardwell tour, where the entire first phase sold out, and again with the Canadian Bus Tour with Dyro and Dannic, which was a nationwide sell-out. Now Hardwell is knocking on our doors with his North American Bus Tour, accompanied by Thomas Newson and Kill The Buzz.

Be sure to get your tickets fast! Hardwell is someone you don’t want to miss out on!

Hardwell Remixes To Hold You Down Til February


If your love for intricate laser shows and heart-happy house music is so strong you think you may burst before Hardwell’s shows in Pittsburgh and Columbus (Feb. 27 and Feb. 28), here are some remixes by the Revealed Recordings label head to keep you contained:

Quintino – Scorpion (Hardwell Edit)
This artist has been on every electronic music lover’s radar for awhile now; having Hardwell add his touch to the fellow Dutch-born DJ is an electro house equation you need to hear.

Hardwell – Spaceman (Carnage Festival Trap Remix)
Hear “Spaceman” as you’ve never heard it before with a house-turned-trap remix by the delightfully dirty DJ Carnage. It’s got that rolling 808 bass and constant, tight drum kick that keeps the tempo totally dance-friendly just a little more chill than thrill.

Armin van Buuren – Ping Pong (Hardwell Remix)
If you’re having heart palpatations just thinking about the Dutch DJ, maybe save this song for last (and get the shock pads ready). Hardwell’s remix of this trippy, quick-hitting track makes it a progressive house hit like no other. I love his addition of atmospheric effects and heavy reverb.

Hardwell x Matthew Koma – Dare You (Cash Cash Remix)
This peppy, electro pop remix by Cash Cash takes Hartwell’s uplifting house track even higher with an anthemic, mainstream feel that can fill a room (as well as many a Spotify playlists).

Tickets are available now for both stops on Hardwell’s North American Bus Tour (click here for 31st Street Studios, click here for The Bluestone). Don’t miss your chance to see him; tickets are selling quickly! Support from Thomas Newson and Kill The Buzz.

Stream: Icona Pop – Just Another Night (Morgan Page Remix)

Stream- Icona Pop - Just Another Night (Morgan Page Remix)
Icona Pop unloaded a remix EP for their single “Just Another Night”. The song off their most recent album This Is… was officially remixed by various artists, however, Morgan Page‘s stood out as the premiere remix off the album.

Morgan Page’s version of Icona Pop’s “Just Another Night” is a progressive house re-work with a big-room sound. It has the pop music feel, which Morgan Page thrives off of on most releases. Icona Pop’s vocals are highlighted as the song builds, setting the tone for an alluring introduction. The song really hits its stride, however, because of Morgan Page’s production that includes a fantastic, piano/synth led melody and a drop that rumbles. A very entertaining remix to listen to Morgan Page’s rendition of Icona Pop’s “Just Another Night” is out now on Big Beat Records. Take a listen to the stream and purchase the song off beatport. Enjoy!

Stream and Download- Dzeko & Torres - Galaxy (Ft. Alessia Rio) [Vocal Mix]
Toronto natives, Dzeko & Torres dropped off their latest project entitled, “Galaxy”, which features vocals by Alessia Rio and the song is out of this world. “Galaxy” is an electro-house recording that packs a stomping bass and explosive energy, but the reason I like it so much is because of it’s EPIC trance-breakdown halfway through through the song. With this temporary alteration in sound and tempo that’s combined with Alessio Rio’s glorious vocals the entire song, Dzeko & Torres’ “Galaxy” sounds like a recognizable drop at a club and festival. This track is now available as a FREE download by liking Dzeko & Torres on Facebook. Take a listen to the stream below and enjoy!
