Dutch powerhouses Firebeatz and Jay Hardway team up on a massive collaboration titled ‘Home’. Bouncy synths and playful vocal chops make up the first breakdown, which then leads into a steady progressive house drop. ‘Home’ combines Firebeatz’s bouncy electro house sound with Hardway’s signature, uplifting progressive house. Both artists have also created an initiative for ‘Home’ with Spinnin’ to bring a person’s loved one home for New Year’s. This tune caps off a very successful 2015 for both artists. It’s already been supported in some of the biggest DJs’ radio shows so we can guarantee it’ll be played out in upcoming New Year’s Eve festival sets as well!
In 2015, Firebeatz have checked collaborations with Tiësto, Sander van Doorn, Julian Jordan, and DubVision off their list. Their latest singles ‘Tornado’ and ‘Ghostchild’ have racked up over a combined 3 million total views, an insane accomplishment for just two songs. In addition, each episode of their radio show ‘Firebeatz Radio’, which airs on SiriusXM’s Electric Area station, has been averaging between 10-15,000 plays per week. About a week ago they performed at Radio 538’s Jingle Ball festival in the massive Netherlands’ arena, the Ziggodome. All this being said, 2015 has been an astronomical year for Firebeatz; 2016 is looking promising as well.
Now that the year comes to an end, we can confidently say that 2015 has been an incredibly successful year for Jay Hardway. His collaboration ‘Voodoo’ with DVBBS has garnered over 14 million plays through Soundcloud and YouTube alone. Proving that he has a dedicated fan base, he released his next two singles ‘Wake Up’ and ‘Electric Elephants’ on his own, which together have acquired over 8 million views. Also, Electric Elephant shot up to the #1 spot on Beatport soon after it’s release and stayed there for quite a while. Hardway has some big releases lined up for 2016 so expect an even bigger year from this one.
