Legendary DJ/producer, Tiësto, and close collaborator and fellow producer, KSHMR, release their new single “Harder,” featuring vocals from Talay Riley, out now on Musical Freedom Records. “Harder” lives up to its name using heavy bass drops, and chopped-up vocal samples in between expansive build-ups, all leading to a sun-drenched, summer anthem. The new single arrives just in time to cap off the perfect summer playlist, embodying the energy and levity of the season and guaranteed to pack the dance floor at any event. This release marks the first collaboration between the DJs since their explosive track, “Secrets” (feat. VASSY), which has racked up over 135 million streams worldwide and remains a festival favorite to this day.
