In an era where every influencer and promotional platform is trying to leverage their audience to become a record label, it’s an absolute pleasure when the musical curation is a perfect representation of the brand. This is exactly the case with CloudKid Records' new release: “Set Mind,” by Dutch producer ZES.

Hardwell Opens Up About His Soul-Stirring Road to Reinvention: "It Feels Way More Like Freedom"

A candid interview with Hardwell, who is creating, performing and living on his own terms after over a decade in electronic dance music.

The underlying storyline is the struggle of being in a non-deterministic state of love. I have been writing this album in an emotionally rough time. Dealing with doubts, ups, downs and existentialism in love as well as life. Each of the tracks journeys through a set of different states, telling both sides to every story.

ZES is without a doubt the silver lining to the rapidly encroaching storm front that is CloudKid Records. We here at eagerly await the torrential downpour that is the forthcoming Closer LP from which "Set Mind" was chosen.
