After making his bow on Revealed earlier in 2016 with his edit of Ale Q & Avedon’s ‘Open My Eyes’, Tom Swoon is back on the famed Dutch imprint, joining up with Revealed regular Kill the Buzz on the instantly memorable ‘All The Way Down’. The pair first planned on working together over two years ago and originally sat down to write the instrumental after ADE 2015, but due to hectic release schedules, with Tom Swoon releasing notable tracks on the likes of Spinnin’ and Armada and Kill the Buzz a staple member of the Revealed Recordings family, it is only now the pair have found time to finish the track. It has been worth the wait because ‘All The Way Down’, featuring the vocals of Jenson Vaughan, is set to foster itself into one of the standout tracks in both the artist’s catalogues.
The track opens with dreamlike guitar tones drifting alongside the expert vocals of Vaughan, before the snares roll in and the vocal begins to loop the word ‘down’, in a tension rising build-up that is guaranteed to induce plenty of crowd sit-downs this festival season. When the track drops, a massive synth lead is introduced that is a stark contrast to the organic elements of the breakdown, but Tom Swoon and Kill the Buzz manage to combine the two effortlessly into a well written, coherent summer-sizzler.

“Betcha thought we’d never do it like that. Giving you something, something that you never had Craig David and Hardwell we aint’ holding back”. Slickly out of starting blocks, this bass-line jam drives the vibe into an entirely new genre for the Dutch don, as he pairs up with the golden boy of UK garage for a sassy, no holds barred house banger!

Recently winning ‘Best Global DJ’, ‘Best Progressive House/Electro DJ’ and ‘Best Solo Artist’ at this year’s IDMA awards in Miami, following an impressive 12 nominations, Hardwell’s 2016 has been a hugely active year so far. Following being the first headline DJ to sell-out a 40,000 capacity German arena, the Dutch maestro will return to the country this month to close his I Am Hardwell – United We Are world tour with a solo show at the world renowned Hockenheimring.
