Hardwell @ Governor's Island 5/26/13

Looking back on last weekend, I think about how time flew from graduating college on Saturday afternoon, to a whirlwind celebration afterword into the wee hours of the morning, then struggling to move out entirely a few hours later to get home and make it into New York for this show on Governor’s Island by 4pm (was never going to happen). The lineup starting with Hardwell, then Dyro, Henrix and Audien was golden and if you were in New York, you had to attend this event. The city had “officially” kicked off the festival season with overpriced, lackluster EDC New York in the parking lot of Citi Field and really needed a proper start to festival season. Why not a holiday weekend like Memorial Day weekend that is the beginning of summer for many, on the beaches of Governer’s Island, with a lineup led by possibly the hottest DJ in the world right now, Hardwell.


Electro-House | Dyro – Leprechauns & Unicorns

Dyro - Leprechauns & Unicorns

Dyro has been creating quite the buzz recently, with his single with Hardwell “Never Say Goodbye” getting its world premier at Ultra, his collaboration with Bassjackers, “Grid” remaining a staple of sets for months and having released a slew of remixes for the likes of Tiesto, Gabriel & Dresden & more.

“Leprechauns & Unicorns” gives us a new spin on the gritty, Dyro sound that we have to come to love and behold with brooding, pulsing saws, a thumping bass line and pitched synths that round out the formula for Dyro’s next massive track. The two fairytale animals seem too nice for such a grimy, intense track, maybe Dyro has been watching the “Leprechaun” movies of late on his long flights around the world. Leprechaun in the Hood with Ice-T and Leprechaun in Space are both quality films, 5 stars, if anyone was wondering.

Progressive House, Videos | Hardwell Miami 2013 Aftermovie “Never Say Goodbye”

Posted by on April 17, 2013


Hardwell had easily one of the standout sets at Ultra Music Festival with an awe inspiring set of largely unreleased tracks from himself and his label, putting the world on notice that Robbert van Corput is without a doubt one of the premier DJs in the world. He not only rocked the MainStage, but he also had his own Revealed Records showcase during the week and then took over the Worldwide stage the following weekend, all of which is documented in the video.

The video starts with his performance in 2012, which was as he described one his best ever and then takes it to 2013 and his set this year on the MainStage, showing the growth in just one year of this rising superstar. One of the many new songs premiered at Ultra, his collaboration with Revealed Record running mate, Dyro and Bright Lights on vocals, “Never Say Goodbye” is given a full preview in the video. The track will be out May 20th on Revealed Recordings.

Hardwell, Dyro, Audien & Henrix 5/26

Ready for a Sunday funday to remember? New York people, Governor’s Island Beach Club is getting ready to open back up for the summer after a star studded cast last summer that included performances from Dash Berlin & Tritonal, Alesso, Thomas Gold and Gareth Emery. On Sunday, May 26th, Hardwell will be joined by Dyro, Audien, Henrix and New York local Alex English for an 8 hour marathon event from 4pm to midnight on Governor’s Island with its beautiful backdrop overlooking the lower Manhattan skyline. If you want a variety of big room beats, this lineup has exactly what you want, ranging from the percussive heavy tracks from Henrix, to Audien’s brand of euphoric trance. On the heals of his massive Ultra set and his sold out “I am Hardwell” show coming up, the Dutch star is the logical first headliner for Governor’s Island. Tickets are now on sale, so grab them while they are still cheap / before they sell out.


Electro-House | Tiësto – Chasing Summers (R3hab & Quintino Remix)

Posted by on March 5, 2013

Hot on the heals of Dyro’s remix of “Make Some Noise” and Sidney Samson’s collab with Martin Garrixx “Torrent“, Tiesto’s Musical Freedom unleashes another remix of the label bosses singles released on Club Life Volume 2. This remix hits hard right out of the gate, tossing aside the original brooding intro from Tiesto and adds their own heavier build that leads into a hard hitting, fast firing percussive drop, making it a more suitable remix for the festival stage. They then return to the melody crafted by Tiesto in the interlude and bring back that drop one last time.

Electro-House | Tiësto & Swanky Tunes ft. Ben McInerney – Make Some Noise (Dyro Remix)

Posted by on February 27, 2013

From one WMC to another, Tiesto & Swanky Tunes’ collab “Make Some Noise” first seen last year at WMC gets a Dyro refresher to put it back in sets just in time for one of the most important weeks in dance music. Dyro parlays this solid track from Tiesto & Swanky Tunes into one of his better remixes of late, keeping some structural elements of the original and using the vocals from Ben McInerney to his advantage, while adding his electro flare to the track with a powerful bass line, a fast paced melody and subtle melodic layers that bring together both the heavy and progressive elements of Dyro’s sound. It this the first of a couplet of remixes for recent Tiesto singles with R3hab and Quintino’s remix of “Chasing Summer” coming out next week.

Electro-House | Bassjackers & Dyro – Grid

Posted by on February 18, 2013


Producer / Dj duo Bassjackers have teamed up with hot in demand Revealed Records producer, Dyro, fresh off of his Canadian bus tour with Hardwell & Dannic on “Grid”. This melodic yet uptempo and grungy electro track is a unique melding of both big room and electro house that relies on the quick key play and a complex low end. “Grid” combines styles from both producers and gives us something in both of their discographies, where Dyro’s sound is something he can hang his hat on, but has become a little repetitive of late and Bassjackers has not had a really big single like this one in a while. Already supported by your pick of the top Djs, expect to hear this often over the next few months.
