The other day, Hardwell took to Twitter to make his copyright problems with Soundcloud known to not only their staff but the EDM world at large. The Tweet was an obvious moment of frustration evidenced by his not-so-light language.
Whether the aggravation was heightened by the impending release (today, October 12) is uncertain, but it’s yet another big producer to join the list of those that have publicly voiced their issues with EDM’s preferred streaming platform. Of course, Soundcloud responded promptly to hopefully rectify the situation.
@HARDWELL Please provide your details to copyright[at]soundcloud[dot]com. We’ll do what we can. /G

Amidst these issues, Hardwell officially released his new single “Mad World” featuring Jake Reese through his Revealed Recordings. The new tune was originally premiered on his Hardwell On Air episode #237. The latest from the #1 DJ is an accessible, feel-good big room tune featuring smooth vocals, melodic leads and explosive drops.
