Hardwell has revealed his brand-new collaboration with fellow Dutch DJ/producer Afrojack, titled 'Hands Up', and featuring the vocal stylings of MC Ambush.
Hardwell played the new tune during episode 355 of his radio show Hardwell On Air, alongside a preview of his upcoming collab with fellow superstar producer KSHMR.
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.

Afrojack is set to take over the fields of Boom, Belgium, with eight sets in total during Tomorrowland 2017. The Dutch DJ/producer is also set to revive his Kapuchon techno alias.
The Afrojack onslaught has actually already begun at Tomorrowland, with the DJ deciding to record the 300th Episode of Sirius/XM’s Jacked live on the festival grounds today (20th July) at a secret location. That brings his total set count to nine over the extended weekend.
Hardwell was on top form at Ultra Europe last weekend, as the global festival powerhouse took to the stunning Croatian city of Split, bringing together the great and good of big room business for three days of spectacular sounds and insane production inside the enormous Poljud Stadium.
Taking over the Zambujeira do Mar resort in scorching hot Alentejo, southern Portugal, MEO Sudoeste — or simply Sudoeste to its dedicated followers — will begin welcoming attendees to the campsite from 30th July, with music set to kick off from 1st to 5th August, and facilities still in place until 8PM the following evening.
Afrojack recently aided fellow Dutchman Hardwell when the latter DJ/producer’s private jet experienced mechanical issues over the Adriatic Sea. The chance occurrence led to a quick mid-flight collaboration between the producers.
Elrow is expanding its 2017 footprint with a dedicated stage during the Balaton Sound Festival. Held 5th to 9th July along Lake Balaton in Hungary, the festival has added Henry Saiz, Edu Imbernon, Catz N’ Dogz, and Anja Schneider through the new Elrow partnership.
Located near the Main Stage of the event, the Elrow takeover is set to be party central throughout the five-day event. The dreamy circus-like theme will be complete with its own cocktail bar and sunbeds.
Hi Ibiza is set to launch on the former site of Space this summer, with an all-new Sunday party in the works with headliners Afrojack, Hardwell, Steve Angello and more confirmed.
Titled Hi Sundays and running every Sunday from 2nd July to 17th September, Don Diablo and Robin Schulz are also on the bill, plus Alison Wonderland, Danny Howard, Doorly, Jax Jones, Jonas Blue and more.
