26. I came back with a silly grin.

11, EVERYBODY'S eyes on high beam, a bit rushy, a bit giggly,

Gathering Nighttime 6 resize trim

and we all agreed it was time to set out and begin our countdown to midnight.

Into the plunging, drumming rain we went, heading for the whump, whump, whump of the Zone lighting up the dark in the distance, all oranges and purples, and looking like some sort of fantastical castle.

Past the red roofed structure of the DnB Zone, past the Happy Hardcore and House tents, past the car-park-sized crater of the fire pit, a weak bonfire at its bottom, spitting, forging on,

through the snarls of other wet wayfarers and into the growing roar, the slop and suck of our footsteps, our heads bent, our hands pocketed, until, just as a breakdown was beginning, as the bass was stripped and all was lulled and left strangely still, we reached the breathing, battered edge of the Zone.

In we went.

In until the crowd constricted, stopped and didn’t try to go further. I felt my feet sink. I wiped water from my face. I inhaled deep and deeper again.

I got ready to let go.

In the wild night, vast and violent, I could see Joseph and Darius in front, big Dan and Sam either side. Beyond, a dark carpet phosphorescent with lights and lasers, surging with excitement, brawling with desire, and unspooling to a remote robotic head glistening blue against black. In the yellow of its gaping mouth Baitercell was hard at work, deep in the mix; TV screens to either side swirled with visuals.

There was a distinctive psssssshhhhhht.

Darius also hard at work. Nitrous Oxide. He passed back a balloon round and full. I took it and widened my stance, gulped half its cold contents, held it for a second, blew it back, gulped it all. The world fell away. Sound pulsed: Whaaaa-Whaaaa-Whaaaa-Whaaaa-Whaaaa-Whaaaa. Big Dan propped me up.

I was gone for a minute; I came back with a silly grin.

      We see him more and more often appear in the harder styles and it wouldn’t be his last one for sure. Hardwell, the former number one DJ of the world, makes an appearance again in hardstyle music and this time he does it with no one less than Wildstylez for a collaboration.
      After they shared the stage during Amsterdam Dance Event together and worked in the studio with each other in that same month, the collab between the two of them was only a matter of time. And now it’s here: last weekend Hardwell played at The World’s Biggest Guestlist Festival in India, which he organized himself for his United We Are Foundation.
      After Hardwell took the chance to mention his friend over the microphone (“Shout out to my buddy Wildstylez!”) during his set, he dropped his new collab with the hardstyle DJ. And so their track got premiered for the visitors and viewers and home via the livestream. Check out the video down below.
      This is the new Hardwell & Wildstylez collab
      As the new collab by Hardwell & Wildstylez is still it’s early stages, it’s not know yet what the title of the track is going to be. When and where the track is going to be released is going to be revealed later on. In a earlier interview we did with Hardwell, he mentioned that there’s a tiny chance that he will play a hardstyle set in the future: “There are no plans at the moment, but never say never.”
