Hardwell teams up with Azteck and Alex Hepburn for vocal track ‘Anybody Out There’: Listen
“Although my new sound is much harder-edged and techier, I still love the beauty of vocal-based electronic music,” says Hardwell of his new release with Azteck and Alex Hepburn.
Proving that although he’s shifted sounds he can still be in touch with his roots, Hardwell has teamed up with fellow producer Azteck and vocalist Alex Hepburn for a track that combines his harder, edgier sound with the old vocal driven style that he used to work with. ‘Anybody Out There‘ is the best of both worlds for Hardwell fans and is set to be a surefire festival heater.
Although the UFO-themed track has a softer pop edge to it, at its core it is a floor-filler all fired up and ready to explode the speakers. If anything, Hardwell is proving that his ‘REBELS NEVER DIE‘ era can work wonderfully with a euphoric vocal moment, something that has not been unfamiliar to him in his past. Explaining this, he stated:
“This track is special to me because I’d been longing to repurpose my new style into a vocal-driven anthem that blended other elements of my sound to create a sort of hybrid track. It needed the right emotion in the track, the right chords, and perfect balance in arrangement to fit the current sound.”
About teaming up with Azteck and Alex Hepburn, he went on to say:
“Azteck and I have known each other for a while, having previously worked together on music. As his recent run of form proves, he’s a great producer with a fantastic ear for a topline. So, I knew a big vocal collab with Azteck would be a fire release for the summer. But the track needed a specific type of voice to make it work, and the unique raspy quality of Alex’s voice made her the perfect fit for the distorted topline on ‘Anybody Out There’.”
Another hit on his hands, ‘Anybody Out There’ is out now via Revealed Recordings.
