Retrospect - Josh & Wesz - DWX

Legends of the hardstyle scene take things back to their roots for this classic hardstyle stomper. Bouncy offbeat reverse bass and triplet grooves make this a nostalgic-yet-refreshing alternative to the raw sounds dominating the Dutch scene today. A perfect modern take on the classic sound, this one will certainly be a contemporary hit at classic events, as well as territories such as the UK and Australia where the reverse bass sound is still dominant! 

Kingdom Come - The Viper & Nosferatu - Neophyte

A clash of two Dutch hardcore legends on this one, bringing nothing less than pure fire to your speakers. Rampant beats and repetitive hip-hop hype vocals give this track incredible energy, which is offset perfectly by the pop-rock style break, which gives the dancefloors a brief moment to draw breath for the ‘stadium clap-a-long’ section of the track. Follow this up with a killer melody, and drop back to the raging kicks, and you have a mainstream hardcore hit.

U (Coone Remix) - Gareth Emery feat Bo Bruce - Garuda

In an awesome twist of genres, UK trance superstar Gareth Emery has drafted in Belgium hardstyler Coone for a remix of his euphoric anthem. Coone’s approach to the remix is not to reinvent the sound of hardstyle on this project, but create the trademark hardstyle sound that DJs from other genres may be looking for to end their sets with — something hard and euphoric — yet staying fresh and relevant enough to still be a peak-time monster within the hardstyle scene. The perfect approach to this crossover project, with great results.

Rest of Your Life - Darren Styles & Re-con feat Matthew Steeper - TWR

Northern and southern hardcore sounds collide on this collaboration, with the hard and bouncy Northern beats of Re-con meeting the Darren Styles trademark euphoric vocal style. The kick has an almost hardstyle feel to it, with an on-beat bass note, and the tapestop, gliding melody has the cutting-edge stylings of big room house. All this pacing along at a rampant 170bpm, with a catchy vocal courtesy of Matthew Steeper, makes a well-rounded hardcore anthem ready for the summer festival season.
