Posted by jewcebox on November 25, 2015
As 2015 comes to a close, Hardwell is showing no signs of slowing down. In December, he is striving to break the record for world’s largest personal guest list with a special charity show in Mumbai, by offering up 100,000 spots on his list, free of charge. But first, he’s teaming up with a slew of his dance music friends on United We Are Remixed, which is due out on December 4th. The album features re-imagined versions of his original tracks from some dance music heavyweights and rising Revealed stars to bring the album to another level. Bingo Players infuses his energetic sound to “Follow Me,” while Chocolate Puma works “Eclipse” into a percussive house anthem. Featuring remixes from Armin van Buuren, W&W, Vicetone, DallasK, Frontliner, KURA, and many more, the record makes us fall in love with each memorable track all over again.

News | Hardwell Joins Armin Van Buuren As First DJs To Receive Action Figure Ahead of His Record-Breaking Mumbai Show
Posted by jewcebox on November 20, 2015
You know dance music has come a long way when some of the genre’s top artists are immortalized alongside some of music’s most legendary artists, like Elvis Presley, KISS, The Beatles, and Michael Jackson. Hardwell and Armin van Buuren are two of the biggest dance artists in the world, but they’re parlaying their success into mainstream appeal with their own personalized action figures. The “Off the Hook” collaborators become the first DJs to receive their own action figures, which you can get here. In addition, Hardwell is gearing up for the biggest show of his career in Mumbai on December 19th, when he will be playing a free show to 100,000 lucky fans who were able to register for a spot on the Dutch titan’s personal guest list. The 100,000 mark would be a new Guinness World Record for world’s biggest guest list – another accomplishment for the Revealed Recordings don – as he is celebrating the launch of his United We Are Foundation, which is looking to educate India’s impoverished youth. You can find more information on the World’s Biggest Guest List show and pledge to the cause here.
