Hardwell feat. Amba Shepherd – Apollo (Original Mix)
The acclaimed Dutchman and #6 DJ in the world, Hardwell, has dropped off a very early Christmas present. One of many highly anticipated tracks in 2012-13, as well as for dance music fans who have been waiting patiently for a follow up to the festival hit ‘Spaceman‘. Accompanied vocals from the lovely Aussie and fan favorite, Amba Shepherd. Who has been featured on songs with such artists as Lazy Rich, Virtual Riot, Giuseppe Ottaviani, Dryo, Ferry Corsten, and notoriously Porter Robinson, whom Hardwell himself has been working with in the studio recently to create something that I am sure will be a career changer as well.
“The title ‘Apollo’ refers to the city of Houston where I started the track in my hotel room“. As for the track itself it has all the essentials for a hit dance track, uplifting symphonic chords, Sylenth plucks, Madeon-ic stop styled drum patterns, tasty lead synths, hard crunching trance Dash Berlin like basslines, and of course euphoric uplifting vocals that celebrate life and express the feeling to why we listen to dance music, attend shows, and separate ourselves from the rest of society. Check out ‘Apollo‘ which is out now on Hardwell’s own label Revealed Recordings.
