Big Room Royalty Unite: Hardwell, Blasterjaxx & Maddix Drop Explosive “16”

After a decade of individual and collaborative successes, Dutch DJ/producer Hardwell joins forces with the production duo Blasterjaxx and Maddix for the electrifying anthem “16.” This highly anticipated track embodies the explosive energy and signature sounds that each artist has become known for.

“16” marks the first official collaboration between the trio, despite their longstanding history of working alongside each other. The track is a rework of Ard Und Jorn’s early hardstyle hit of the same name, released back in 2002. While Blasterjaxx and Maddix initially teased the collaboration on social media, Hardwell’s recent episode of Hardwell On Air revealed the full extent of the partnership. The first live performance of “16” took place at Revealed Night Miami during Miami Music Week, leaving the dance floor in a state of electrifying chaos.

The synergy between the artists is undeniable. Hardwell’s penchant for revitalizing trance classics, evident in tracks like “Loneliness” with Tomcraft & DJs From Mars and “Take Me Away” with Maddix & 4 Strings, shines through once again. The pulsating techno kicks and the powerful, albeit repetitive, melody create a potent combination that’s primed for peak festival season energy.

Coming off his dramatic return to the Ultra Miami mainstage, Hardwell continues to ride a wave of momentum. Similarly, Maddix delivered a high-octane set despite the pouring rain at Ultra Miami. Both artists incorporated “16” into their sets, unleashing its explosive energy upon the festival crowds.

“16” is now available on all major streaming platforms. Get ready to experience the electrifying power of this long-awaited collaboration.
