Dutch Hardstyle Maestro Ran-D to Release “Illuminate,” Teasing Special Vinyl Edition

Ran-D, a prominent figure in the Dutch hardstyle music scene, has announced his upcoming album titled Illuminate. This release follows his 2020 album We Rule The Night, which featured a celebrated rework of The Cranberries’ classic “Zombie.” Illuminate is set to include a collection of hardstyle tracks that have been heating up the festival season, such as “Code of the Warrior,” which kicked off the “Endshow” at Defqon.1 Festival this year.

Illuminate promises to cater to hard dance enthusiasts, delivering a diverse range of tracks from euphoric hardstyle tunes to energetic rawstyle bangers. The album will also showcase Gunz For Hire, a collaborative project between Ran-D and Dutch artist Adaro, formed back in 2011.
