With the whole world watching, Hardwell had been undertaking a rapid transformation into the influential mega-star that he initially set out to be with only the power of music in his grasp. While opening his Tomorrowland live set of 2013 with ‘Jumper’ and being named one of the absolute highlights of the 3-day festival receiving over 26 million YouTube views, Hardwell maintained his world-class output and demonstrated why he had been gaining so much attention. His fellow Dutchmen, W&W, had also been on top of their game in 2013 with the release of ‘The Code’ on Revealed Recordings so it was a simple decision to enlist them as collaborators for ‘Jumper’.
Paired together while they were touring, they created a summer festival anthem that was heard on main stages, clubs and everywhere in between. Hardwell, alongside W&W, unraveled yet another anonymous highlight from his landmark Ultra Music Festival set back in 2013. As you would expect from the union of two undisputed titans of the Dutch house overhaul, ‘Jumper’ brought three of the nation’s most capable young club advocates together for a new and powerful precedent in the sound of modern dance music. A grinding electro anthem dealing in bursts of subtle melodic euphoria, ‘Jumper’ keeps the adrenaline high from start-to-finish. This track not only emphasizes the leaps and bounds both Hardwell and W&W have taken over the years, but also the unprecedented stamina still found in Revealed‘s ascent of the peak time skyline. One things for certain — this was an anthem that had digital market domination written all over it.
