With the resurgence of Swedish House Mafia this year and a certain sense of nostalgia brought back to dance music fans across the globe, there’s a sense of optimism that just maybe we’ll see the revival of a genre that brought dance music to fame. That’s right, we’re talking about “big room”, the genre co-aligned as a staple of progressive house, and a genre which universally saw a massive decline in popularity around late 2015. However, who’s to say that a couple of Dutch super stars can’t turn around the unfortunate fate of the big room genre? We’re not sure if the genre’s popularity can resurface, but we can certainly find out as Hardwell & Blasterjaxx team up to tease their massive soon to be released collaboration entitled ‘Big Room Never Dies‘.
Both the progressive house mainstays have catalogs littered with big room and ‘Big Room Never Dies‘ is sure to become a call to all progressive house fans and producers alike that will take everyone back to their dance music roots. The massive tune, which has been in the works for quite some time now, has been played on several radio show and live mixes, in fact Blasterjaxx even gave a sneak peak of the tune on his live performance on the popularised Dutch based radio show Slam!
Although no official date has been 100% confirmed for the release judging by the looks of it we can assume the tune, which has already seen plenty of play time by marquee DJ’s across the globe, will see release sometime by the end of the month. In the meantime however Hardwell has taken to Twitter promoting the Spotify pre-save ‘Big Room Never Dies‘ along with it’s industrial album art. Hopefully the tune will only push for the revival of a dearly missed genre.
