You might be feeling a little deja vu, which is perfectly normal as we do too! After a little over a year since our first interview with him, we sat back down with international Duth megastar DJ, producer, and label head Hardwell. It's been a busy year for the Dutch musician, from crossing America in a bus tour to new releases all over the musical map, there's lots to discuss and lots to discover with Hardwell. Alongside Billboard Radio China's Doomkitty, we find out about his new releases and musical explorations, the most important weekend of his year, and his take on Asia as an electronic music market.
You may have heard, he was in Macau for the beginning of his residency at Club Cubic. There with label-mate and friend Kill The Buzz, he tore the roof down and lit the whole place on fire with a set that hit points for new music, old classics, and familiar favorites from the dance world and beyond. We had a great time with him and his show, so check this out to catch up with a great artist and peep some of his latest tracks.
What happens when two of the biggest music stars on the planet cross paths and become ‘Creatures Of The Night’? As 2 x #1 Top 100 DJ Hardwell and Award-winning pop sensation Austin Mahone unite for a sweltering new collaboration, premiered on the mainstage of ULTRA 2017 during the prestigious Miami Music Week recently, ‘Creatures Of The Night’ takes Austin’s silky yet bold vocal and ventures it into revolutionary territories. Introducing the rising topline over a backdrop of modest keys that allow the impassioned lyrics to really shine, before a future bass-leaning melody and bold energy sweep in to place the track firmly where it belongs - in dancefloor-meets-pop territory - get set to make the track your anthem of the Summer.
Racking up over 1 million views in just 4 days in an unprecedented response upon its premiere, Hardwell’s record-breaking ULTRA presence only seems to swell further for another consecutive year across the web and social media, matching his live, main-stage headlining accolades in stature as a leading artist of the scene. Add this to Austin’s huge fan following with a social media presence that eclipses over 33 million devotees alongside his growing reputation for sold-out headline tours, and it’s easy to see the impressive flight Austin’s career has rapidly taken in recent times. With each artist bringing their own flavour of expertise into the mix for a sultry-meets-sunshine party banger, ‘Creatures Of The Night’ is poised to dominate live sets and glow out of speakers throughout the Summer and beyond.
