This month, Miller Genuine Draft are inviting you to remix Hardwell’s ‘Mad World’. Hardwell is no stranger to remixing himself - in fact his big break came off the back of a bootleg he created. So we thought it would be a good time to celebrate the Revealed boss’s greatest ever remixes.
ROBIN S ‘SHOW ME LOVE vs BE (HARDWELL BOOTLEG)’
The track that propelled Hardwell into the big league was a bootleg of Robin S’s classic ‘Show Me Love’ alongside Laidback Luke & Steve Angello’s ‘Be’. The track destroyed dancefloors across the globe and paved the way for Hardwell to launch Revealed Records and take the world by storm.
COLDPLAY ‘A SKY FULL OF STARS (HARDWELL REMIX)’
If you have spent any time in front of an EDM festival mainstage in the last few years you will certainly have punched the sky to this one! Coldplay’s emotive lyrics have always lent themselves well to dance music’s euphoric genres, and this one is no exception.
MARK KNIGHT & FUNKAGENDA ‘MAN WITH THE RED FACE (HARDWELL REMIX)’
Technically a remix of a remix, this rework of Mark Knight & Funkagenda’s interpretation of the Laurent Garnier techno classic transitions it from the dark rooms where it was born to the festival mainstages it now resides. Whichever version floats your boat, this one is a stone-wall classic!
ARMIN VAN BUUREN ‘PING PONG (HARDWELL REMIX)’
When two Top 100 DJs legends combine, you know you are onto a winner. And with over 7 million YouTube plays on the official channel alone, Hardwells take on ‘Ping Pong’ has clearly done the trick. The mix shows off a harder side of Hardwell’s sound, whilst retaining the euphoria of Armin’s original.
