Hardstyle Pioneer Ran-D Announces New Album, “Illuminate”
Dutch hardstyle icon Ran-D has revealed a brand-new album, Illuminate.
The new album follows 2020's We Rule The Night, a fan-favorite in the global hard dance community. That record featured Ran-D's biggest hit, his anthemic rework of The Cranberries' 1994 grunge classic, "Zombie."
Illuminate is said to contain a plethora of Ran-D's hardstyle hits from the past festival season, including "Code of the Warrior," which functioned as the starter pistol of Defqon.1 Festival's high-flying "Endshow" this year.[embed]https://youtube.com/watch?v=z4eaJ0O9sQg[/embed]
Hard dance enthusiasts are in for a treat with Illuminate, which will comprise everything from "euphoric hardstyle tracks to energetic rawstyle bangers," according to a press release. The album will also feature the heavy artillery of Gunz For Hire, Ran-D's collaborative alias alongside Dutch compatriot Adaro, with whom he joined forces in 2011.
Fans of Ran-D can also now pre-order a special limited edition vinyl of Illuminate.
Illuminate is scheduled to release on November 9th. Check out the full tracklist below.
