Restart | Skip to main content


Kronos exploded onto the scene years ago as one of the hottest prospects in hardstyle, and since then has been working tirelessly to achieve this status. Twenty-nineteen was a great year for him, with notable solo releases and collabs with high profile artists under his belt, but for me 'Restart' has taken things to the next level. The energy mid intro is a distinct nod to the hardstyle kicks of the early 2000s, with gated reverb. The main break offers up a powerful melody, which builds and drops to a pitched kick accompanied by aggressive, screechy synth work. The production is impeccably clean here, I love it.
