Since Hardwell’s initial debut of ‘Eclipse’ at Ultra Music Festival in Miami last year we’ve been cooling our heels for the ultimate release of United We Are. Fans who have had the pleasure of experiencing the World’s #1 DJ live can now get hyped for the slick, studio finish of a song that has soundtracked memories across the globe. Currently sitting in the iTunes Dance Top 10, ‘Eclipse’ may be familiar to some as it’s continued to ignite his live sets throughout last year and now in 2015.
Producing the final edit with the intention of it taking the leading, introductory spot on his debut artist album, Hardwell’s “Eclipse” takes over with an abundance of atmospheric strings, instrumental tension and a rousing build-up that explodes upon its peak climax. Listeners are left satisfied whilst also setting the ground-shaking foundations for what is poised to be the album of 2015.

As most 17 year olds are getting ready to go back to school, Lorde is working feverishly to finish her latest project. She is set to curate and produce the single for the third installment of the Hunger Games: Mocking jay- part 1 via Republic Records.
Lorde became the obvious choice to curate the newest Mocking Jay Project after her contribution on the 1985 Tears of Fears cover, “Everyone wants to rule the world” on Hunger Games: Catching fire soundtrack.
“Curating the soundtrack for such a hotly-anticipated film was a challenge, but I jumped at the chance,” said Lorde. “The cast and story are an inspiration for all musicians participating and, as someone with cinematic leanings, being privy to a different creative process has been a unique experience. I think the soundtrack is definitely going to surprise people.”
Although the film is set to be released November 21st , it still remains to be seen when the soundtrack and lorde’s single will be confirmed to debut.
Prepared to be wowed by Mystery Skull’s music video for his re-release of “Paralyzed.” The song will haunt, enchant, and surprise its viewers. It dips into the supernatural with creatures of the paranormal. The song and funky, the video, directed by Bo Mirosseni via SPIN is creative and fun.
