Hardwell Teases Brand New Track Edit 'Locked & Loaded'

Hardwell dropped a preview for his new edit of Domeno and Michael Sparks' "Locked and Loaded" on Facebook this morning, giving fans a teaser with just under two minutes of run time to build anticipation for its August 17 release date through Hardwell's label Revealed Recordings.

The preview opens quietly, as house chords buzz away beneath the melody, slowly building to a steady big room climax. The track gains its title from an aggressive vocal sample that occurs just in time to signal the drop, as a repetitive groove plays out over a driving beat.

The preview doesn't offer up a lot of variety, but makes it clear that Hardwell's edit of the track will bring the heat as a festival banger.
