Review: TIESTO APPROVED!! At just 23 year, Dutch Producer/DJ Hardwell is on track to become one of the biggest stars in electronic music over the next couple of years. Largely down to his close affinity with non other than Tiesto, being praised as one of his favourite producers of late and collaborating on numerous smashes. 'The World' is a perfect and powerful showcase of his sound many are penning as 'trouse'. Which although not to everyone's taste, is a pretty good way of summing up this monster. Tough housey beats and a zappy synth line build with snare rolls and intricate twists to the powerful lead riff, certain to send any floor absolutely crazy!
Review: Hardwell had a pretty amazing 2012, growing out from under the wing of Tiesto and becoming a worldwide name in his own right. One of the biggest singles from the tail end of the year was this bomb 'Apollo' featuring the now infamous vocals of Amba Shepherd. Its got his signature big room house sound all over it, which with the soaring lead lines and smile inducing melodies lends itself to trance sets too. Spain's Vendetta label pick it up and give it another lease of life, reminding us what a tune it was. If you missed out the first time, get on it now!!
