Sephyx & Robert Falcon are no strangers to Revealed Recordings, and the pair return to the label once more for their first collaborative effort on ‘Heart Of Gold’Sephyx’s previous release on Revealed, the massive ‘Lights’, opened up many doors for the Dutch-born artist and was supported by the likes of Blasterjaxx and VINAI, while Robert Falcon’s debut Revealed release ‘Kartel’ came on Revealed’s latest hugely successful Festival EP compilation.

For their debut collaboration, the team pair up and showcase their diversity by providing two alternative cuts of ‘Heart Of Gold’, both demonstrating their unbound studio prowess in the process. The first version is a progressive number, full of electronic swells that punctuate a luscious, instantly memorable vocal that takes the record to the next level. Add to the mix beautifully pitched vocal stabs and signature progressive synth hits and the result is a perfectly balanced, hands-in-the-air anthem that is set to be a mainstay in the world’s best DJ’s sets for a long time to come.

For fans of the harder persuasion, Sephyx & Robert Falcon cook up a sped-up Hardstyle edit that both pounds and impresses in equal measure. Whilst the second edit retains the main-hook that is the vocal, it is switched up by deep, melodic ripples and full of melodic flourishes that make it difficult to pick between the two versions.

For their first hook-up, Sephyx & Robert Falcon have provided an insight into just why the pair are on everybody’s lips. ‘Heart Of Gold’ is set to catapult the pair into the upper echelons of the dance music pyramid, get it whilst it’s hot when the EP is released, out now via Revealed

    • Steve Aoki and Lil Jon Unleash Legendary Collab ‘Get Lower’ steve-aoki-lil-jon-get-lower-oz-edm

      The Iconic Duo Reunite For Their Reimagined Version Of Classic Party Anthem “Get Low.” 2x-GRAMMY-nominated artist and producer Steve Aoki joins forces with GRAMMY-award-winning rapper and producer Lil Jon on their new collaboration “Get Lower.” The single pays homage to Lil Jon’s 2003 dominating chart-topping club record “Get Low,” which charted at #1 on Billboard Hot Rap Songs and #1 on Billboard Rap Airplay, featuring Aoki’s brand new electro-driven production and with new original recorded vocals by Lil Jon. “Get Lower” marks the fourth official collaboration between Steve Aoki and Lil Jon, dating back to their first record together “Turbulence,” which became a nightclub smash and a sports event staple. The two artists share a decades-long friendship and have performed all over the world together, including stages in Japan, at SXSW, Ultra Music Festival, and most recently, the mainstage at Tomorrowland 2023. Their adventures together in the studio and rocking global stages are captured in the brand new music video for “Get Lower,” out today. “Jon and I have been friends for years, and whenever we get together on a track, it’s a party. When we performed at Tomorrowland last year, the energy was off the charts, and we knew we had to create another festival anthem. ‘Get Low’ is one of the most hype tracks of all time, and it’s an honor to work with Jon to bring it back for the next generation.” – Steve Aoki “It’s crazy that Steve reached out to me about this song, especially considering it’s the 20th anniversary of the track this year! I’m grateful for our friendship over the years, and there’s no better way to honor this milestone for ‘Get Low.’” – Lil Jon “Get Lower” is Steve Aoki’s first single of 2024. The new release follows Aoki’s 8th studio LP HiROQUEST 2: Double Helix, which includes collaborations “Locked Up” with Akon, “Invitame A Un Cafe” with Ángela Aguilar, and “Us” featuring ERNEST. Steve Aoki has also remixed the NFL on CBS Theme song, which fans can hear throughout the Super Bowl this weekend. “Get Lower” follows Lil Jon’s recent singles “Bombón” with Daddy Yankee and El Alfa, “Let’s Get Crazy” with Don Omar “JUMPIN” with Pitbull, and “Till The Club Close” with Tiffany Haddish, and Fivio Foreign. The new track arrives nearly twenty years after Lil Jon changed the face of hip-hop and global music culture by releasing “Get Low.” “Get Low” peaked at #2 on the Billboard Hot 100 and is recognized as a pivotal track for propelling crunk music into the mainstream. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bwfU8p6NFfE

Every genre, from house music and trance to electro and techno, has given the dancefloor magical moments through big vocal tracks. That feeling a big vocal song has on a festival crowd is hard to describe, but when that moment comes, it’s intoxicating.” The collaboration with AZTECK was a natural choice for Hardwell, given their previous work together.

As his recent run of form proves, he’s a great producer with a fantastic ear for a topline. So, I knew a big vocal collab with Azteck would be a fire release for the summer. But the track needed a specific type of voice to make it work, and the unique raspy quality of Alex’s voice made her the perfect fit for the distorted topline on ‘Anybody Out There’.” ‘Anybody Out There’ holds a special significance for Hardwell as it represents his desire to infuse his new style into a vocal-driven anthem that combines various elements of his sound to create a captivating hybrid track. Reflecting on the process, he explains, “This track is special to me because I’d been longing to repurpose my new style into a vocal-driven anthem that blended other elements of my sound to create a sort of hybrid track. It needed the right emotion in the track, the right chords, and perfect balance in arrangement to fit the current sound.” With its fusion of cutting-edge electronic music and infectious vocals, ‘Anybody Out There’ promises an unparalleled audio experience that pushes the boundaries of live performance. Hardwell’s creative vision, combined with the talents of AZTECK and Alex Hepburn, guarantees an unforgettable musical journey for listeners. ‘Anybody Out There’ signifies Hardwell’s evolution as an artist, showcasing his willingness to experiment and explore new sonic territories while staying true to his core essence.
