Fresh off their set on Good Morning America, Krewella continues to surprise by collaborating with the Future King of Hardstyle, Headhunterz. Headhunterz has shot into the realm of global visibility with his remix of Kaskade’s “Lessons in Love” (below), and this collaboration is not to be missed.
I’m kind of amazed that they’d choose hardstyle over Krewella’s dominant genres of electro, big room house and dubstep, but I’m glad they did. Pete Tong dropped the track on his All Gone Pete Tong radio show, and it’s coming out Nov. 19th on Ultra. The anti-bullying message is something I frankly wish I had in middle school and I’d love to make sure the younglings hear this. It’s a bit cheesy, but when the bass kicks, you realize you’re in the middle of a massive hardstyle track with synth-y frosting on the top. Considering that Krewella has fought against a bunch of bullying because the group is 2/3 female, and the amount of shit Headhunterz gets for being into hardstyle, I’d imagine this is a sweet track to make. I hope it gets the exposure it deserves, and the kids who need to hear its message jump up and down listening to it.
(PS: Yes, Krewella did perform on Good Morning America, being the first EDM act to perform on American morning television. Here’s the video in case you want to know what Live for the Night sounds like before 9 AM.)
