When two top 10 superstar DJ’s join forces together, crowds all across the world logically go wild as the first teaser of the track drops. That is just what happened a few weeks ago, when Hardwell revealed that his fellow Dutch buddy Afrojack and himself are about to release a highly energetic collaboration titled “Hands Up” feat. MC Ambush. Hardwell already premiered the electro house banger on his Hardwell On Air radio show on September 22nd, but “Hands Up” is set for an official release date of today on Afrojack’s Wall Recordings label.
The year 2017 is all about teaming up for Hardwell it seems, as he will soon take his place behind the decks together with Armin van Buuren during the upcoming Amsterdam Dance Event. For the first time in their careers they will perform back-to-back under the alter ego ‘Two is One’, on October 21st in the Johan Cruijf ArenA. This is where the master of big room house meets the king of trance, but Hardwell’s collaboration with Afrojack proves that for them, EDM and electro house is here to stay. “Hands Up” is an absolute festival banger for the main stages, as was the pair’s previous collaboration “Hollywood” that was released on Revealed Recordings last year.
“Hands Up” has already been included – as an ID – in sets of W&W, Afrojack and Hardwell all summer, especially on the bigger festivals like Ultra Europe, Balaton Sound and Tomorrowland. Still, with the official release dropping today, big room EDM fans are guaranteed to dance the night away indoors as well throughout the fall with this absolute banger.
