Hardwell feat. Jake Reese – Mad World


Your daily dose of Big Room from DJ Mag Top 100 winner Hardwell. After some unexpected and enjoyable collaborations (of which ‘Chameleon’ was a particular highlight), ‘Mad World’ sees Hardwell return to his poppy, euphoric best. A gliding guitar melody compliments Jake Reese’s vocals to a tee, which all inevitably culminates into a crowd-pleasing drop, Although the musical output of Hardwell and his ‘EDM’ compatriots polarises opinion, mainly for its often cliche and formulaic structure, there is something innately pleasing found in songs of this build. It is, of course, fundamentally a pop song, and despite there being far more ‘sophisticated’ music being created, guilty-pleasures like these should certainly not go amiss.
