Sometimes, it’s good to be the king. Hardwell, the current #1 DJ in the world, can attest to that. So can the former #1, Armin van Buuren. Today, Hardwell returns with an official remix for Armin, tackling his newest single, Ping Pong. The results, as expected, are glorious.
Hardwell had the crowd suffering from collective apoplexy when he dropped this remix on the Ultra Music Festival main stage, and it’s easy to see why–he’s taken the playful atmosphere of Armin’s original and completely flipped it upside down. The familiar “ping” and “pong” sounds are still here, but the song’s trance roots have been replaced by a defiantly deadly bombardment of booming big room sounds. Pick it up on Beatport now via Armin’s coveted Armind imprint.
