Hardwell & Steve Aoki feat. Kris Kiss
Dance music heavyweights Hardwell and Steve Aoki come together on Dim Mak for “Anthem.” Pulsating electro synths and big room 4/4 kicks fuse flawlessly with Kris Kiss’ glossy melodies and crowd-rallying vocals on a track poised to take main stages by storm. The highly-anticipated song marks the first official collaboration between and Hardwell and Aoki, two of the world’s most internationally recognized DJs. Since 2013, both artists have annually ranked in the Top 10 of DJ Mag’s Top 100 DJs poll. Coming together now for the first time ever, Hardwell and Aoki combine their talents to craft a global ‘anthem’ for fans worldwide.
“My fans know that I love to deliver the biggest tracks in my sets and definitely from my studio,” says Hardwell on the collaboration. “I am always working to bring that anthemic vibe with my music. So what better DJ to pair up with in the studio than Steve to create a dancefloor banger that is every inch the ‘Anthem’ it says on the tin!”
“Hardwell and I named this song ‘Anthem,” states Aoki. “We came together with the intention of creating a worldwide anthem, a record for all our fans around the world.”
