Festival season may be over at this rate, but it seems Hardwell and Afrojack are yet to get the memo. Clearly inspired by the summer months just gone, the boys have only gone and released ‘Hands Up’, an absolutely crazy track that - you guessed it - has been produced with the festival season in mind.
The video for the accompanying track begins with a message: ‘Somewhere this summer Hardwell’s plane had to make an emergency landing and Afrojack gave him a lift to one of his shows. This footage was found the next morning’. As you might imagine, things quickly turn pretty loose, with the video providing an intriguing insight into the lives of two of EDM’s foremost players.
If there’s any EDM fans out there still pining for next summer, Afrojack and Hardwell at least have you covered for the time being. A perfect antidote for these colder climes, ‘Hands Up’ is out now on Wall Recordings.
