A special download of the “Yearmix 2012” without the included voiceovers is available HERE.
In 2012, Hardwell saw immense success by producing some of the biggest tracks of the year, such as "Apollo" and "Spaceman," headlining the world's largest festivals, mentoring the most promising up and coming artists, and bringing his Revealed Recordings label to the forefront of EDM. He proves time and time again that his potential truly has no limits.
Hardwell opens up the "Yearmix 2012" with a special treat as he drops the world's first play of the "Apollo" radio edit with added vocals. In addition to his own chart-topping hits, the the mix includes productions from Dannic, Dyro, Firebeatz, and Jordy Dazz, among others, to ensure an exhilarating experience much like his incredible live sets.

The first to ever introduce to me to the genre of Hardstyle, brothers Sjoerd and Wouter Janssen, better known as Showtek, bring an alternative side of Dutch EDM producers that we have become so accustomed to. The boys hit it HUGE in 2012, demonstrating that their hardstlye sounds could be easily transformed into massive bangers even with the new electro/house scene. Working with respected artists such as Tiesto and Hardwell on "Hell Yeah" and "How We Do" respectively, as well as newcomers Justin Prime and Bassjackers for "Cannonball" and "Hey!" they've had quite the number of singles and remixes hit the charts this past year.
To wrap it all up in this precious 1 and a half hour ball, the two have recently put out their "2012 MegaMix" - featuring not only their own tracks and remixes, but quite possibly the best collection of 2012 hits, or should we perhaps call them "classics" now in 2013. 93 minutes of pure excitement and bliss, the Janssen brothers have made a statement that they are back with a vengeance heading into the new year - cannot wait to see what they've got in store for us next.
If you like what you hear and wanna take it with you on the road you can snag it off the boys' iTunes page.
Be sure to peep their brand new Rage Mix of "Cannonball" featuring Justin Prime, now available for FREE download below
Sjoerd and Wouter Janssen a.k.a Showtek have been making some serious noise in the edm world first coming out with their track featuring Tiesto called "Hell Yeah", and then again working with Hardwell on the production of "How We Do". Now the dutch brothers have added some electro swag and have gone back to the hard style techno they are known for with their newest track with Justin prime called "Cannonball".
After an epic set at this years Electric Zoo in New York city, Hardwell has now released his official after video which takes a twist to most we've seen. Hardwell also drops an acoustic mix of "Call Me Spaceman" with Mitch Crown which is guaranteed to give you goosebumps and is also available on itunes. Here is Hardwells official after movie..

Fresh off the decks! LA based DJ Carnage just released this dirt nasty, trapped out version of Hardwell's monster track Spaceman. The original has been getting a lot of airtime from DJ's all over the world at festivals and shows alike. To date, this might be my favorite mix. He slowed it waaay down, and added a nice little glitch to the drop that makes for some awesome, head bangin' fun. Be careful with that heavy underlying bass too, it hits hard.
Keep an eye out for more to come from DJ Carnage. Since getting discovered by The Cataracs, he's been producing for everyone in the game from pop stars Dev and Chris Brown to hip hop new comers A$AP Rocky and Theophilus London. I'm looking forward to more big things to come.

After collaborating on Zero 76 last year, dutch producers Tiesto & Hardwell have once again combined forces with their remix of The Naked + Famous' single 'Young Blood'. The track was debuted last week at UMF in Miami and was extremely well-received. Definitely love seeing these hollanders together, as Hardwell continues to make massive strives atop the rankings [I've been hooked ever since I heard 'Molotov'], and, of course, Tiesto is the "best in the world". Cheers
Now established as the first key tent-pole event of the new EDM year, ID&T's Energy is clued-up clubbers first encounter with the sound-designs that Europe's electronic dance top-tier are going to be sending their way throughout the coming year. The best of the world's top-tier producers. The most cutting-edge remixologists. The newest, hottest studio stars of tomorrow. They're all gathered, they're all here... for Energy 2012 - The ALBUM!
Before WMC, before UMF, before the White Isle or the summer month's festivalism, right here is where the starting gun sounds! The titanic Utrecht-based Energy event is the launch pad for each new beats/bass/synth-packed EMD year,
With their finely-tuned lone-range radars scanning studios near daily, ID&T & High Contrast sign the tracks that capture the essence of the event straight off the mixing desks. Their track-packed 2012 edition has sourced music from heavyweight operators like Tiesto, Fedde Le Grand, John Dahlback, Marco V, and Marcel Woods, as well as nu-skool heroes including Hardwell, Dada Life, Jochen Miller, Chris Lake, and Funkagenda. It also selects white-hot sonics from the prospecting superstars of tomorrow, Nicky Romero, Deniz Koyu, Manuel De La Mare being just three.
Every event of standing requires an official anthem and every mix-comp needs a big kick-off. This year Energy's audio-emblem is served up by Hardwell, who following his runaway success over the last 12 months, springboards into 2012 with 'Cobra.' fulfilling all the requirements of the anthem mandate, it's a huge, bass-powered, squelch 'n' distort fest, topped by a wickedly infectious 'n' irresistible organ mainline. Continuing to mine a rich seam of music, it's followed by the marching drums of Denzal Parl's 'Militia,' Ted Nilsson's heart-pounder 'Runaway' and the big-room culture of Fedde Le Grand & Patric La Funk's 'Autosave' - all of which nitro-inject the mix. Hardcoding the event's dance-DNA, you'll also find Dahlback's high-wire tense 'Feel It,' 'Work Hard, Play Hard,' Tiesto's weekender-aimed anthem and Dada Life's deliciously looping (and loopy) 'Cookies With A Smile' all continue to flesh out the event's ethos.
From its outset fisc 2 sets about securing Energy's groove credentials and ensures those quotas are kept sky-high! Building more house rhythms into the mix are EDX'S 'D.A.N.C.E.', the warped bass of Chris Lake & Michael Woods' 'Domino's and the big piano drop moment of Jerome Isma-Ae and Daniel Portman's 'Flashing Lights.' The mix's midpoint lets loose the first-time collaboration of Marco V and Marcel Woods. The team behind 'Scream' team have watched a litany of DJs rally to their track's cause, turning it into one of 2012's first must-owns. As the disc reaches its conclusion, the nu-skool performs a takeover.
The electro-bounce of Joey Suki's 'Zomp,' Ostahnhof & Ugo Platana's 'Evensong' (in its drum-dramatic Michael Woods remix form) and the whooping uprush of Tim Mason album endgame 'Anima' collectively, conclusively seal Energy's audio-ideology.
Every bit your gateway to spring's arena season (and beyond), ID&T's 'Energy 2012 - The Album' is a future-perfect vision of the pulse-quickening floor anthems coming our way this year.
Forward thinking dance denizens, buckle up and get your clubbing shoes on! It's going to get a whole lot fiercer before it gets any calmer!

Hardwell is back at it with a new & fully banging track for us. Titled 'Munster' this song truly lives up to every implication of its name. A filthy progressive house tune that seamlessly transitions pounding bass into a beautiful synth build up before slamming you in the face with a massive break down at 3:40 [patience is key as there are several distinct elements]. Close your eyes, lean back, and turn your speakers all the way up, as this one will take you right to the fields of Tomorrowland - sure to be a festival anthem! Cheers
MTV has just put Hardwell down as an EDM rookie to watch in 2012, but as even the broken DJ Mag top 100 poll placed him at #24, the classification of Hardwell as a rookie is laughable. Hardwell exploded into public consciousness in early 2011, sharing producer credits with Tiesto on one of the biggest tracks of 2011 in Zero 76.
It's looking like he's primed to make another fantastic start to the year with his newest release, Spaceman, from his own Revealed Recordings. The buttery synths take an abrupt dive into an explosive hook with enough power to launch you into lower orbit. When I saw Hardwell last month at Ten Nightclub in Newport Beach, Spaceman induced girls to clamber onto guys shoulders. When the buzzing drop hit, it induced the girls to flash him while raging balls. The look of joyousness on the 24 year old's face was absolutely classic. Here's hoping this song becomes one of the anthems of year like it deserves to be.
