Hot on the heels of his Quintino collaboration, "Reckless," Hardwell has delivered a track for which his fans have been pining since last year. The Dutch producer has officially released "Retrograde," which is an aptly titled song considering that it sounds like the style of big room house that originally put him on the map.
"Retrograde" introduces its central motif at the onset before an uplift gives way to a slow-burning build. The melody returns in the form of emphatic lead synths at the drop, a cinematic crescendo that evokes the main stage grandeur that became synonymous with the EDM boom of the past decade.
Hardwell (real name Robbert van de Corput) announced that he would take an indefinite break from DJing late last year, but it hasn't slowed him down on the release front. He kicked off 2019 with "Being Alive" and then followed it up with a Mike Williams collaboration titled "I'm Not Sorry."
