Hardwell reminisces about 2009 singles ‘Feel So High’ and ‘Twilight Zone’

In the last few weeks, in addition to appreciating the rise of Dance music to the stage of global appeal, we have also reminisced about the rise of Hardwell to the forefront of the industry. Once a 16-year old glitter-eyed boy who expressed his desire to pip others and become the #1 DJ in the world, Hardwell’s path towards stardom has been built on a steady output of top-notch singles – some of which have paved the way for newer artists to follow suit and develop their sounds in his footsteps. Just last week, the Dutchman took to his Facebook to remind us about two such singles from 2009 – the year’s Dance Valley Festival anthem titled ‘Twilight Zone’ and his collaborative single titled ‘Feel So High’.

Posted under the ‘StoryOfHardwell’ tag, these two posts were a marker of two of his releases from a little under 10 years ago. While ‘Twilight Zone’ was a single that could always hold its own while getting the dance floor moving, ‘Feel So High‘ was a thorough commercial release, done with Hardwell’s fellow countryman and singer I-FAN, whose bordering vocals gave a holistic touch to the single. All in all, these two singles remind us of a time when the likes of Hardwell and Avicii were just on the rise and apace, conquering the scene, one festival at a time.
