Hardwell ft Matthew Koma - Dare You

The newly crowned most popular DJ in the world, Hardwell gives us his first single since “Never Say Goodbye” back in May. The track was first released on Shazam last week, giving people a taste of the track (as if they can’t do that with rips on youtube), but everyone really wanted the full version out today. “Dare You” is one of poppier tracks that we have seen from Hardwell, but refreshingly leaves behind the minimal festival style that has become the norm for his label for a more uplifting, melodic take.

Electro-House, Progressive House | Hardwell ft Amba Shepherd – Apollo (Remixes)

Posted by on March 26, 2013


Hardwell’s huge end of the year single with hot in demand vocalist Amba Shepherd “Apollo” gets its much deserved remix package from a combination of new names and old hats, crossing genres to provide a varied remix package for the chart topping single. Dash Berlin’s popular 4am mix seems much more upbeat than the misleading “4am” remix title with a minimal, electro breakdown and a tranced out build, letting Amba Shepherd’s vocals shine. Lucky Date takes the track and plays off of the original melody, while adding his own glitchy pitched lead that brings the track together and may make this one the stand out of the entire package. Noisecontrollers brings together heavy electro and a dab of dubstep with a booming hardstyle kick. Psychic Type took over “The Code” to some success and do that again here with “Apollo”. While the remix may satisfy some trapoholics, it lacks the ingenuity and power of the other three.
