EDITORS’ NOTES

Dutch electro-house producer Hardwell knows that EDM success is all about maximum dancefloor impact. His fifth studio album, United We Are, certainly features its share of club-ready anthems. Tracks like “Echo” and “Don’t Stop the Madness” are floor-fillers built on the same massive riffs and party-starting vocals that made Hardwell a festival draw worldwide. But United We Are is also a bit of a departure for this biggest of “big room” DJs. He blends swooning dance-pop into “Follow Me,” which features a hands-in-the-air guest vocal from R&B star Jason Derulo, and slows things down with the hazy downtempo sway of “Birds Fly,” a collaboration with soulful house singer Mr. Probz.

Parental Advisory: Explicit Lyrics.

United We Are

Hard work pays off. Congrats on the debut album!

Not even Molly can help Sally

If the album is anything like the few tracks released already, it's a total bomb. Hardwell needs to stick to his strengths. His live performances are decent. Stick to DJing becuase he has never been a good producer.

Why?

Why couldn't artists like Hardwell and Martin Garrix get by on their own? It seems all the songs these two put out these days are paired with another artist. Many of the songs that made each of them popular were ones they created mostly by themselves. Avicii went and made a huge debut album, changing the way EDM was heard. I was a Hardwell fan when he released Spaceman, but now many of his songs stay the same. This is not what I was looking for in a Hardwell release.
