Just when we thought things might be cooling down after an intense two weekends of Ultra Music Festival, some of our favorite DJs hit the ground running with tours and some are even dropping new tracks. Those lucky enough to attend this year’s festival may have caught a glimpse of one of the soon-to-be most epic collaborations.
Imagine this: Laidback Luke and Hardwell, teaming up together to drop one of the dirtiest tracks seen of these two DJs. ‘Dynamo’ is full of heart throbbing bass, vibrant synth riffs, and percussion that is sure to leave us wanting more. The preview of the track has received a phenomenal response, no surprise, in the weeks it has been released. Just a few days ago however, Hardwell released an exclusive preview which gives us more insight into how big this track is going to be. I wouldn’t be shocked if ‘Dynamo’ turns out to be this summer’s hottest mix. If the collaboration is a sign of what’s to come, we all better brace ourselves for the havoc about to be unleashed.

For the past 5 years, Showtek, otherwise known to family and friends as Wouter and Sjoerd Janseen, have been rapidly rising in the electronic dance music realm. From touring all over the world, to having their production in a movie, to working with talents like Tiesto and Hardwell, it’s no wonder that they were part of the Identity Festival lineup this year. Whether they are in the studio or behind the decks, the Dutch brothers are really creating a name for themselves among some of the biggest DJs and producers out there. We had a chance to sit down with the guys at the sold-out Identity Festival in New York, as they dished what the festival has been like so far, what it’s been like to work with Tiesto, and all about their brand new track with Hardwell, “How We Do."
So download the package here, put your headphones on blast, and get ready for the spaceman to take you on a wild ride.
Ready to get Sirius Hardwell fans? This Thursday 7/19, the young Dutch DJ/producer gave a select group of fans an exclusive live set in the SiriusXM studio in New York City. Before his set, the award-winning spaceman himself (aka Robbert van de Corput) was interviewed by Sirius XM Radio DJ and Producer Liquid Todd.
Hardwell revealed on air all about his tracks “Spaceman” and “Cobra," what it’s been like to work with EDM luminary Tiesto, his new compilation mix, and what his hectic touring schedule is like.
Ten miles of darkness and 2000 cars separated us from the festival we had only dreamt about. As we stared forward, excited and anxious, there was a faint flicker towards the sky and then the familiar explosion of fireworks in the distance. A roar ripped through the desert from the cars around us. Indian chiefs and their topless girlfriends yelled and cheered out their windows, as packs of neon spattered fur boots ran by on foot. This was the scene I had heard so much about. The one that would save dance music events
