We've not heard much in the way of EDM-related Shazam news since they signed a deal with Beatport back in February, but today it looks like they're taking a step in our direction. Hardwell's new single will be unlocked via Shazam sometime today (all we're hearing is midday GMT). There are no real details on if fans will have to do anything or if the single will just magically appear, but this is a great new way for EDM artists to get exposure. Scratch that, it's a great way for artists to get exposure, as Hardwell will be the first artist in history to debut a single through Shazam.
Who is ready to unlock my new single at midday (GMT) today!? #HardwellDareYou
