In a collaboration that is worthy match-up between two of the music industry’s stellar forces – each portraying their own forte – Dutch DJ and record producer Hardwell and sensational pop singer/songwriter Austin Mahone have teamed up together to churn out their latest single titled ‘Creatures of The Night‘ on the former’s Revealed Recordings. The ever-flying Dutchman’s stronghold in the Dance music industry has grown tremendously ever since he won the first of his two #1 DJ titles and his musical output may not show to the new ones it but in the long scheme of things Hardwell has kept his focus on putting out more music than ever. Add to that Austin Mahone’s reputation as social media icon, pop star and an artist whose shows are often sold-out, the latest collaboration from the two has the widest possible audience that Dance music history may have ever seen.
Keeping in line with that record, Hardwell’s premiere of ‘Creatures of The Night’ as part of his Ultra Miami 2017 set saw response quite unlike any other track. Raking up 1 million views in less than 4 days, the track was touted to be one of the bigger tracks from this half of the year before even seeing the insides of the release sleeve.
The collaboration features the two artists bringing their best assets to the table as Hardwell puts forth his innovative production skills and Austin Mahone laces it with great aplomb with his silky smooth vocal work – besides being a great piece of songwriting. The production features Hardwell utilizing a Future Bass beat-work and synth patches to entwine Mahone’s pop vocals and turn the entire record into a Dance track for the times. With Future Bass genre making its presence felt in the industry and pop taking no questions about stepping down, the track is rightly touted to rule the charts apart from being a wholesome listening experience.
