Darren Styles: Rewind to EDC 2014

For those of you that went to EDC 2014 and are fans of UK Hardcore, I am sure you remember seeing the king of Hardcore, Darren Styles.

What about those of us that were not fortunate enough to attend though? Thankfully, if you missed it or were unable to attend, Darren Styles uploaded his entire outstanding set from the show, track names and all.

Darren Styles no way

In all honesty I have probably listened to the entire set in full about 20 times or more. It incorporates so many unbelievable Hardcore tracks and is loaded with plenty of Darren Styles’ own original tracks and remixes, as well as some extraordinary new tracks that are not even out yet. In fact, they are so new that they don’t even have a release date! I have been searching literally everywhere online for any hint of a release date for some of these tracks and there is no information on them. It is driving me crazy.

I have included a short video of one such example, a brand new Darren Styles track called “Get This Place,” which he played during his set at EDC, and all I have to say about it is “wow.” This is one of the hardest and fastest Darren Styles tracks I have ever heard. Every single time I hear it I just lose it. It is so good and makes me want to dance like a literal maniac.

Now if only we could get a release date or any information at all about the track, and then I would be a happy camper. Hopefully soon!

Back to the reason why this article was bring written in the first place: Darren Styles’ unbelievable EDC 2014 set. I have had the opportunity to see Darren Styles once in my lifetime, and if I have any advice to give it would be to see him if at all possible. You will not be disappointed. But don’t just take my word for it. Take a listen to this hour long exhilarating set to get a feel for what Darren Styles sounds like, and let us know what you think in the comments below.
