A moment with the REVOLT anthem-maker Sub Sonik!
The past few years have been a whirlwind for Hardstyle power-figure Sub Sonik. This force of nature has dominated the scene with his cutting-edge sound that’s allowed him to emerge straight from the shadows to the forefront of the current movement. Sub Sonik has impacted speaker-systems worldwide with his collection of state-of-the-art hits including “I Am The One,” “Bring It On” with Rebelion, “Ready For This,” “Double Dare,” with Brennan Heart, “Set Me Free” with Warface and who could forget about his notorious remix of Darude’s “Sandstorm”?!
2019 is shaping up to be yet another epic year for Ilmar, who is currently preparing for the summer festival season by working on plenty of new material – including an anthem for first-time festival REVOLT.
“I have no doubt that REVOLT is going to be EPIC. It’s a brand-new festival from Art of Dance and I-Motion, who are responsible for many great events and have hosted SYNDICATE together. The events from these organisations are always next-level, so I expect that REVOLT is also going to be sick. And of course, I cannot wait to drop my anthem there too!”
Yep, Sub Sonik is representing the first ever edition of REVOLT with his anthem. So, what’s the inspiration behind this defining track?
“When I think of the word REVOLT, I think about ‘rebellious, riots and a new start.’ With these elements in mind, I tried to combine them into the anthem – also keeping in mind that it’s an outdoor festival, so creating a big and spacious atmosphere was a must. Finally, of course the anthem has the authentic Sub Sonik sound, with powerful kicks and screeches. I worked alongside Tha Watcher who created some epic vocals too. When I showed the anthem to the REVOLT organisation, they were really into it which was a great feeling. I’m sure it’s also going to blow the audience away too… I can’t wait!”
But wait – there’s more! Not only will Sub Sonik release his solo anthem with Tha Watcher, but he has invited the Hardcore queen Korsakoff to create a remix of the REVOLT 2019 Anthem.
“I’m really excited to have Korsakoff remix my REVOLT anthem. She’s one of the biggest Hardcore artists and I have no doubt that the result is going to be awesome!”
This Hardcore queen has been going full throttle in 2019! She kicked off the year with a bang and the release of two new tracks “The Warriors” and “Journey Through Stylez,” and has now followed up with several collabs and new solos on the horizon. Not only that, but she has been invited to add her signature Hardcore twist to the 2019 REVOLT anthem, by Sub Sonik and Tha Watcher – and you can only imagine that the result will be epic!
