The mammoth techno anthem by Hardwell & Space 92 is out on Oliver Heldens’ HILOMATIK imprint.
Hardwell and Space 92 collectively make up two of the industry’s most successful contemporary artists, with a mammoth list of chart-topping hits to their names. A musical idol in his own right, Hardwell barely needs an introduction. Space 92, on the other hand, has been techno’s best-selling artist for the past three years.
The two juggernauts have now dropped the collaboration we’ve all been waiting for. Representing some of the best music the industry has to offer, ‘The Abyss’ provides us with an intoxicating blend of the pair’s respective sound palettes, journeying through acid synth-work, intoxicating trance-inspired breaks and monumental basslines to create an anthemic gem that celebrates electronic music in all it’s forms.
Speaking about the record, Hardwell commented: “It’s no secret I’m a fan of dirty acid sounds, pulsating basslines, and big rave anthem energy. I’ve been a fan of Space 92’s music for a while now, and the prospect of combining the elements of trancey techno and distorted percussion he’s expertly nailed in his sound made this collaboration an exciting project.”
It’s seldom that the electronic music community is treated to a junction of such immense stature, but when two of the circuit’s most impressive producers join forces in the studio, the effects are felt far and wide. Hardwell and Space 92’s ‘The Abyss’ is the collaboration we didn’t know we needed; an impeccable blend of techno, trance and progressive house that transcends genres and unites fans from across these scapes.
“Hardwell is such an industry titan, so this collaboration was definitely something I was extremely honoured and excited to work on! I am proud of what we both achieved, as I think this track reflects both our personalities and signature sounds.” Space 92 said regarding the collaboration.
One of the most highly-anticipated anthems of the summer, ‘The Abyss’ has been eagerly awaited by fans across the globe and has already entered the touring playlists of countless international A-list DJs.
