Hardwell & Grammy Award-winning orchestra deliver highly anticipated Ultra 2018 intro, ‘Conquerers’
Does Hardwell ever sleep? In addition to an endless touring schedule, the big room don has consistently delivered new music in 2018, and what’s more — now he’s dropping off his stunning intro from Ultra Music Festival. It’s become an annual tradition for the Dutch superstar to treat fans with the official version of his opening track and they somehow get better with each passing year. Dubbed “Conquerers,” Hardwell’s latest offering is divided into two distinct pieces but conjoin to create one of his strongest productions in recent memory.
The first half of the two-part “Conquerers” was constructed with the assistance of Grammy Award-winning Metropole Orkest who have previously lended their orchestral prowess to some of the world’s most iconic creators, including U2’s Bono, Elvis Presley, and Pete Tong among others. The cinematic masterpiece then transforms into part two where Hardwell summons his signature main stage sound that proves big room house is still undeniably thriving.
As most fans know, Hardwell specifically works on a fresh intro to debut at Ultra and then continues to play it out for the remainder of festival season. In this case, the official release of “Conquerers” arrives just two months following the performance so the early offering has fueled some speculation that something else may be looming as he prepares for his return to Tomorrowland later this year.
