Hardwell And Maddix Rework 4Strings Classic ‘Take Me Away Again’


Legendary DJ Hardwell teams up with Dutch phenomenon Maddix to spread retro video game magic on rework of classic 4Strings Eurodance track Take Me Away Again via Spinnin’ Records.

The original version of Take Me Away Again was a breakthrough hit best known for its presence on the Dance Dance Revolution games in the early 2000s and still holds up as a classic  with over 27M Spotify streams to its name.

Since kickstarting his music career deep in the Netherlands at the age of 14, Hardwell has built a legacy crafting hits that have landed him multiple International Dance Music Awards, 2 World no.1 DJ titles, an MTV European Music Award, and more in addition to official remixes for superstars such as Rihanna, Calvin Harris, Moby, U2, J Balvin, and Coldplay.

Collaborating with fellow household names such as Armin van Buuren, Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike, Steve Aoki, Afrojack, and Tiësto, Hardwell is known chart-topping singles such as Apollo, which landed a Beatport no.1 and collected over 56M Spotify streams, and previous collaboration with Maddix Bella Cia, which amassed over 88M Spotify streams.

Meanwhile, fellow Dutch native and frequent collaborator Maddix injects his captivating and creative sound into Take Me Away Again, continuing his massive career that has seen releases on labels such as Armada, Spinnin’ and Hardwell’s Revealed Recordings as well as performances at high-profile festivals such as Ultra Music Festival, Parookaville, World Club Dome, and Mysteryland. Following numerous releases bolstered by his new core sound over the past year,  the hype for this techno and Big Room hybrid is real.

The immense growth of his own established sound has sent tremors throughout the global electronic dance music scene and led to support from big names like Techno artists Amelie Lens, HI-LO (Oliver Heldens) and UMEK and EDM and Trance artists such as Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike, Tiësto and Armin Van Buuren.
