Festival season may be over at this rate, but it seems Hardwell and Afrojack are yet to get the memo.

Hardwell went back-to-back against KSHMR on the recent Spinnin’ Sessions guestmix. The pair recently released the collaborative single ‘Power’.
The two massive EDM stars keep the Big Room mix bold and brash. Session 229 is rife with cuts from the Spinnin’ and Revealed imprints, commencing with the KSHMR and Tiësto collab, ‘Harder’.

Afrojack is encapsulating the final fleeting moments of summer (here in the Northern Hemisphere) with his edit of Major Lazer’s ‘Know No Better’.
With a significant infusion of xylophone, the tropical-house vibes are now strong within the already Caribbean-kissed selection. The augmented deliveries of Travis Scott, Quavo and Camila Cabello bounce playfully around this new percussive inclusion.
