Sound Rush makes a big impression with the release of the brand new Defqon.1 2024 anthem ‘Power of the Tribe’. After the official world premiere last week and a record number of pre-saves, the internet is full of positive reactions. “Did someone say old-skool and euphoric?”

Anyone who has followed the Sound Rush brothers lately knows that they consider the Defqon.1 anthem to be their life’s work. More than 15 years ago, they attended the last edition in Almere Strand. “Our (musical) lives changed completely when we set foot on the Holy Grounds for the first time,” Sound Rush proudly said during the announcement. “With full focus, passion, and love for this music, we worked on our biggest project yet.”

“The brothers really killed it!”

The result of ‘Power of the Tribe’ is astonishing and there are positive reactions online to the anthem for the largest harder styles festival in the world. Last year, more than 250,000 Warriors visited the festival, where Sound Rush has had great moments over the years with tracks such as ‘Transform’, ‘One’ and ‘Army of Fire’. But this year, they outdo themselves and the weekend (with more than 350 artists in total) has not even begun.

The anthem has an exceptional length (compared to today’s tracks) of 5.5 minutes. It combines all facets of a Defqon.1 anthem: it honors the past with a tribute to iconic records such as ‘Scrap Attack’ and evokes the primal feeling like a true Defqon-record. Sound Rush has been speechless by all the reactions since the release: “Too many emotions are going through us. We will provide a detailed response, thank you very much for streaming.”

“Prepare to unleash 4 days of power”

Defqon.1 – Power of the Tribe will take place from Thursday the 27th of June to Sunday the 30th of June 2024. There are still Fresh Friday tickets available (including The Opening Ceremony with Ran-D, the return of Showtek and The Spotlights by Sefa and Spitnoise) and Sunday tickets (with a 5-hour The Closing Ceremony) available via the festival’s official website.
