When MTV News last caught up with Hardwell, following Las Vegas' Electric Daisy Carnival, he teased what he called a "hard" new single with fellow Dutchmen Showtek called "How We Do." Riding high off his epic EDC show, Hardwell also told us they shot the video for the single at the annual festival.
In just two days, MTV Clubland will be premiering the much-anticipated "How We Do" video. But to give fans a taste of what's to come, we have an exclusive teaser just for you.
"The whole video and the teaser is based on EDC. That's really cool," Hardwell, born Robbert van de Corput, told us back in June. "The vocal in the track says, 'Yeah! That's how we do!' So, it's like, 'This is how we get down!' It's a pretty crazy track. It's not radio-friendly stuff. It's real hard.
The teaser begins with Hardwell flanked by the Showtek brothers to reveal the video's title, and goes onto show Hardwell and Showtek taking their respective chopper rides to EDC's Las Vegas Motor Speedway, inter-cut with panoramic shots of the Vegas skyline. Just before the song presumably is about to reach its climax, we are briefly shown snippets of their individual EDC sets, with sweeping shots of the masses in attendance.
In fact, when we caught up with the Netherlands-born DJ/ producer, he told us his show at EDC 2012 was one of his biggest so far. While Mother Nature and traffic kept a few artists from performing at Las Vegas' Electric Daisy Carnival, nothing could stop Hardwell from giving an epic performance for tens of thousands of fans.
The single will be available for purchase July 30. "It was my second time at EDC, but my first time I played on the main stage. It was crazy!" Hardwell revealed. "I think it's probably one of the biggest shows I've ever done. It was more people than Ultra [Music Festival]."
To catch the full video of Hardwell and Showtek's "How We Do," tune into MTV Clubland Thursday (July 5) at 3 a.m. ET.
