Hardwell reveals 5 new IDs during spectacular Ultra mainstage set
Dutch electro house superstar Hardwell returned to the stage at Ultra Music Festival following what had already been a jam-packed mainstage day so far. Embracing a revved-up Miami crowd the DJ brought his signature ethos of ‘go Hardwell or go home’ as Miami partied hard into the night under the city skyline. Celebrating 20 years of Ultra in style, the Dutchman spun energy, exuberance, and passion into his set dropping an impressive nine new IDs. We Rave You is on hand to explore each ID individually.
Hardwell strikes Ultra Miami with a brand new track (00:07) to open his performance. An original Hardwell production, this euphoric track screams masterpiece as its bold opening strings pave way for a melodic anthem brimming with bassy and hard-hitting beats. Keeping up the energy in his incredible set, Hardwell drops a choppy synth extravaganza (12:30) which is the result of a fiery collaboration between SICK INDIVIDUALS & Maddix. Announcing some brand new Hardwell music, the ‘Spaceman’ sensation lights up Ultra Music Festival with a brand new collaboration with John Christian (13:19), full of pummeling basslines and a no-holds-barred attitude. We will definitely be hearing more of this one.
Not much detail is known about this next ID (22:30) but we can confirm it is a certified banger and ready to do damage. Perhaps receiving a road testing, its ferocious build up leads to a wave of adrenaline-fused drums and wobbly vocal chops fitting for any Hardwell performance. Up next and the final ID is another Maddix production this time with UK producer Olly James (29:31). Keeping in good electro taste, this ID is ready to ignite dancefloors with its high-tempo energy and electro vibes fitting for any mainstage.
