Coming off of a 2014 that saw Dimitri Vangelis & Wyman release two of the year’s biggest festival anthem’s, “Payback” and “ID2,” the Stockholm based duo storm into 2015 with a brand new track “Survivor.” Originally dubbed “ID1” by fans after its premiere on Steve Angello’s BBC Radio One Residency, “Survivor” has all of the anthemic hallmarks of a DV&W tune. With their trademark attention to detail, Dimitri Vangelis & Wyman stay one cut above the field, blending together intricately designed synths, reverbed plucks and a spine tingling piano breakdown that may be their best work to date.
The free download will be available Monday, February 2nd with the option to stream on Spotify.

Holy smokes this is bad. Who in the hell wrote this song? The lyrics make me cringe just listening to them. This Harrison guy singing the vocals (who I suspect wrote the lyrics) is hard to listen to. There’s even a cliche “one, two, three go” before the drop. Please make it stop. Don’t get me wrong. I’m not against progressive house. There are many artists who do it well. This track though? It makes me ears bleed. You know what I find hilarious? Last year, in an interview with Armin Van Buuren, he said:
“I’m experimenting with a lot of new, different sounds. I’m a bit sick of the same formula that’s going on in EDM right now so I’m just trying to change boundaries and look at what’s going on in the rest of the world. Even in the hip hop scene and the trance scene and try to combine as much as possible.” [VIDEO]
Hardwell’s “United We Are” album drops January 23rd. I won’t be picking it up.
