It was definitely one of the worst and most shocking moments of the year when Hardwell announced his decision to step away from touring. It’s been almost 5 months since we saw him drop one last mindblowing set during his farewell show at the Ziggo Dome during last year’s Amsterdam Dance Event. As much as we miss seeing him rocking every mainstage around the world, we can still enjoy his amazing tracks and new releases, which is always great news, and today is one of those days.
This time, Hardwell has teamed up with fellow Dutch producer Mike Williams to present us with their newest collaboration called ‘I’m Not Sorry‘. The track, which is out now on Hardwell’s label Revealed Recordings, is set to be one of the tracks that we’ll frequently hear during Tomorrowland Winter and Ultra Miami this March.
The song has perfectly combined the styles of both producers. It has a happy energetic vibe and the future house bouncy effect from Mike Williams. Even though, ‘I’m Not Sorry’ doesn’t have that aggressive and powerful electro house sound that most of Hardwell’s songs have, we can clearly note his stamp on the classic synths that only the iconic Hardwell could produce. The track is accompanied by heavenly vocals that have a special Icona Pop sound and provide the song with a very catchy rhythm.
After his retirement, releases like ‘How You Love Me’ (together with Snoop Dogg and Conor Maynard), ‘Being Alive‘ and ‘Chase The Sun’ (along with Dannic) remind us how missed Hardwell will be this festival season.
By now, listen to ‘I’m Not Sorry’ below.
