Hardwell premieres new tracks during Ultra Miami performance

One of the biggest producers in world music, Dutch DJ Hardwell always garners a huge following wherever he goes, and the recent Ultra Music Festival in Miami was no different. The “Spaceman” superstar took to the main stage at the American event, wowing crowds with a series of huge hits, and impeccable mixes.

Perhaps the most exciting element of Hardwell’s set was his unrelenting taste for new music, working several previously unheard ID tracks from his Revealed label into the mix. It proved to be no huge shock to Hardwell fans, after the global icon revealed his Miami plans via Twitter last week. Undoubtedly one of the finest of these came from Kaaze; a high-energy main-stage banger that the Dutchman layered under the unmistakable vocals of Steve Angello classic, “Show Me Love.”

Later on, the DJ also debuted a brand new release, an upbeat collaboration ID with fellow Dutchman Maddix. The production, with a distinct Hardwell feel to it, was mashed together with the acapella of another Steve Angello track, Swedish House Mafia‘s iconic “Don’t You Worry Child“, and Ed Sheeran‘s “Castle on the Hill” – much to the delight of the Bayfront Park crowd.

Not finished there, Tiësto‘s former protégé then also surprised the ID-hungry ravers with a team-up with Moksi; the final result of which is a simply filthy drop verging into the realms of dubstep. You can check the full set below via Hardwell’s official youtube channel, and let us know your thoughts on these brand new tracks, as well as the set as a whole.
