We’ve featured Hardwell plenty of times on this site, and his podcast quite a few times. The podcasts are more or less a standard of what’s hot in mainstream house music. This week’s (debuted this weekend) featured the releases of some big names (Laidback Luke, Tiesto, and himself to name a few) as well as a slew of unreleased goodies. For those of you that missed hearing it live, look no further!

Plenty of hot releases! Some we’ve heard before in previous sets and podcasts, others for the first time. I’ve managed to get my hands on some of these, so in case you want to listen to these outside the podcast, now you can! ‘Lift Off’ was already featured on MMIBTY this week here in case you missed it.
My first impression of Hardwell’s ‘Apollo’ was that it sounded alot like Porter Robinson. That being said, we haven’t heard much from Porter since he released the single ‘Language’. Mat Zo, who’s best known for his trance and progressive house bombs, has teamed up with Porter for an excellent follow up to ‘Language’. This is sure to be a progressive house track that gets played out for months to come after its official release (and even leading up to it).
The Hard Rock Sofa remix of this track has scored lots of spotlight by the top names, but Tiesto and Deniz Koyu also released quality remixes to Guetta’s well produced progressive house track. It’s a great transition from ‘Easy’ in Hardwell’s podcast as well, definitely deserves some notice.
Being the big dutch house fan that I am, the original track was a knockout for me. This week, the remix pack for this came out, including some big names including Deorro (previously Ton!c), GLOWINTHEDARK, Wax Motif, Crookers, Matsiksoul, and LBL. Luke’s remix is definitely the electro house festival banger in the group, and it hits much harder than the original track. Check out all the remixes, not a bad one in the bunch (and for you trap heads, the Wax Motif/GLOWINTHEDARK remix will knock your socks off)
Just reading the title is sure to make anyone do a double take. Rock legends clashing with EDM legends is sure to bring about something special, right? The track has the classic Benassi funky bassline while still sounding like any other Rolling Stones track. Great production, well done Benny!
Since these are all big names, I’ll let you do the simple Google search to find their pages, but definitely support the tracks featured in this podcasts (especially the ones yet to be released), and make sure to subscribe to Hardwell’s podcast for more of the latest and greatest EDM.
