Hardwell has had quite the year this year, ranging from main stage performances to unique collaborations with legendary artists like Snoop Dogg. We all know the big room DJ/Producer for his massive stage presence and super energetic music. Whether it was “Spaceman“,”Apollo“, or running his prominent record label Revealed Recordings, he has contributed so much to the EDM scene. However, where you aware that back in 2005 Hardwell made techno? Just last week, his Facebook posted a clip of an old track titled “Flirt” he made under the alias Mister Hard.
In 2005 I released under the name "Mister Hard" a banging techno release called "Flirt"! This track was a big floor killer. 🔥 The record was spinned all over the world by many well known DJ's. Tell me how you like this! 🙌#StoryOfHardwell

“Flirt” is a super edgy techno track that seems quite distant from the Hardwell tracks we know of today. It is unique to see how his sound has grown so much. This track is super fast and contains harsh sounds and vocal effects. Flash forward to today and you’ll see just how much he revamped his sound and finely tuned his mixing skills. A quick search on the internet shows how vintage this record is.. If you ever want to see some super old, throwback Hardwell in action, this is it!
